    Default Its official. I'm a C2-HA addict..... *part 2*

    Continued from Part 1


    I can't keep myself from owning one. I get one, sell it then get another one. This is now my 4th one. Its a freakin' disease I tell you! The C2-HA has it all. Clip. Grip ring. Endless mods. Small size. I think I just need to hold on to this one. LOL. I got a 5 mode DX R2 drop in running in it.

    Any other C2-HA addicts here?

    Yes, the C's are great! However, I prefer the C3 over the C2, but I love them both.

    Edit - it turns out that the bottom one in the picture below is a very early M2, not a C2.

    Here's pictures of one I own and one my older son owns. Note the very early serial on the lower one in the pictures.

    Well here is my latest. Early SF Centurion HA. Is there an earlier version than this? with noticeable style differences?








    Notice that it doesnt have the third flat.

    Viewed in person in medium indirect sunlight, the darkest ones are quite a deep gray, but not dark enough to be considered black.

    Another way to see the difference is this talcap shot. The HA on the left is the 'old' natural. The HA on the right is closer to the 'new' natural:





    So yes, SF made a change. But perhaps not as far as you might be hoping. Keep in mind that this is all natural HA, a complex process with a variety of variables that effect shade (including the metal itself), and with a complete lack of dye to compensate for any influences. Next years or next batches color may again be lighter or darker still.

    When I'm farther along with this new technique, I'll photograph the entire set under the same lighting and photographic conditions so it will be easy to differentiate.

    Well, I decided to use my 1000th post for one of the best threads on CPF. My 3-flats C3-BK was what really got me into this forum. I would argue that the C3 is the finest, most adaptable flashlight that SureFire has ever made. I recently added a C3-HA to the family, but I find that the newer 4-flats body isn’t as nice to hold and am thinking of selling it or trying to trade it (ahem) for an older 3-flats. (The photo includes a G3 for scale, LOL). Thanks KDOG3 for a great thread!

    Im one light closer to matching Dafab. my C2 Emerson in HA-BLK

    So far im matched with:

    C2
    C2-CJ
    C2 Taurus
    L5
    M2 Strider
    C2 Emerson
    (I dont think Dafab has an old crosshairs SF Centurion, but he has a bunch of other C2s that I dont have haha)

    Always available, if you can find someone who wants to sell from their collection

    It's no longer produced by SureFire, though.

    I have a C2-BK. Is it worth buying another just for the HA?

    Yes...the HA versions just feels different in your hand...I had two HA's, and got rid of one, but when I got my C2-BK, it was a totally different light...I'm sure the same would be true in your case...

    Thanks to Part 1 of this thread and all its wonderful pics, I now have a C2! I kept seeing all those C2's and thinking to myself, "I have to own one!" And now I do.

    I picked up a C2-HA body from a member over on the Marketplace, and added my own black Z44 bezel and Z59 clickie that I had laying around. It also has P60L in it that I got on the cheap over there too. I think my next upgrade will be a Malkoff M60L and a FM34 Beamshaper.

    Anyhoo, I can't begin to tell you how much I love this light! The combination of black bezel/HA body/black tailcap looks really cool. I kinda wish it was all black, but I still love this look.

    My only regret is not buying one sooner...
