    Default Mirage Man Customs

    I think it's about time for Brian to get his due. Since he began dabbling in titanium, some serious stuff has come about. I'm very proud to introduce my Mirage Man "Fatty" 19MM lights. I believe I am one of three people currently holding some "Fatties" so I hope the others, Corey and Barry, will chime in.

    Without further ado, allow me to introduce the Fat Twins. The light engine I'm using is a custom Darkzero R2 build. Specifically, a GDuP Cree R2 WC that is perfect for the 19MM reflector. Cudos to Will for this amazing LE. I have one installed and will order one for the other light soon.

    I am very proud of these lights. They've fast become favorites of mine. Brian's work is impeccable.







    I asked Brian to please make the tail walls on mine really fat.


    Here they are compared to a standard McGizmo PD tail:

    Edit 6-18-11, new addition!

    AA Fatty with 4 green trits in the tail:




    The four trits were installed as flawlessly as the light itself:

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    I'm looking for a Mac's Customs Tri-EDC in either aluminum or titanium. The only must is that it is bored to accept an 18350. Emitter type and clip are not important.

    I'm at work driving around in the squad and saw this thread. I just happen to be carrying both my Mirage_Man custom lights tonight. Fatty with a Cree R2 Flupic and the 38mm Titanium with a Milkey Modded quad K2. I am thinking about a Fatty 27mm and maybe 38mm

    This is mine next to a Mcgizmo XR19-PD-S

    These are beautiful lights and "Fatty" is just the right name for them.


    May I ask how much this light weigh w/o battery ? (with LE).

    Those are very fragile looking...........



















    To say it's gorgeous work would be a huge understatement. It is extraordinary though. Nice job Brian.

    Giving this one a bump, as I'd love to hear that this thread inspired others to order some of these magnificent customs from Brian (Mirage Man). Honestly, I love these so much that I've actually ordered a third Fatty, identical to these two. To me, the Mirage Man "Fatty" is the ultimate titanium light. And yes, this light could certainly withstand any abuse you (or your tank) could deliver.

    The fat twins just became the fat triplets. Have I mentioned I love these lights?

    Very nice, easilyled! I wish there were more people investing in the "MM Good" philosophy. Sounds like a Campbell's soup commercial.

    Mirage Man soup is MM Good.

    Here's a slight variation on the Fatty style light. I initially made this one for myself but have decided to part with it if anyone is interested. Ok, now back to the shop to make some more chips .

    That's an awesome 38mm, when I get the funds I think a Fatty 38mm is my future.

    I agree, Corey. You can never have too many Mirage Man customs. I'm planning on number four as we speak.

    Fantastic design and execution Brian.
    That "someone" has very good taste.

    I won't say who's it is but it has a XP-G R5 with a FLuPIC.


    These builds will also be in that same thread.

    Alrighty, another Fatty 1x123 has been released into the wild! Similar to Dad's in construction, but with a bit of a bevel in the tail to get to the clicky... Brian, I love it, simply beautiful. Built like a tank, but elegant!!! Thank you.
