    My Centurion sporting a P61 LA now stands guard over my backpack. I swapped the long clip for a short one with a lanyard attached to it. I holster it in a Maxexpedition 5" holster. It is a very snug fit with the lanyard. I like it that way as I know it will not fall out if the flap becomes un-dogged. I will have to be careful not to drop it when taking it out. I have a full SC1 w/P60L in a Lowpro camera pouch so I can belt carry the entire kit.

    Its beautiful!

    Awesome. I decided to get another E2DL this time, but I still love both the C2 and C3-HAs' ...

    Will the LX2 clip fit on the C2 with any modifications?

    That would be great. A nice bezel down clip would be nice.

    It will fit without any mods needed. It also looks great on the E series lights.

    Yes!

    It's official. I'm going to be a C2-HA addict!
    In fact I hope this will be the one flashlight I use and the only flashlight I'll have for a good few years.
    Time to start saving.

    Heh, heh... I still can't decide what light I want to get next but the C2-HA's are always top of the list. Just gotta find the right drop in for them.....I've been going through some "flashlight upheaval" lately but when the dust settles there just might be another one sitting there.....

    What I've been looking for forever.

    Why don't more people do this? The C2 clip must be superb!

    Here's more pics.

    Tempest, I will update the collection thread sometime this week...
    It INSANE how many Surefire I've gone through!!

    I'll post a before and after shot to show just how few I have left....do Surefire Compatible parts count?
    I must admit, I've enjoyed have them all and been VERY fortunate to have had such an extensive collection.

    Ok..You all really got me wanting to buy a C2..and of course customize the crap out of it...I'd like to run my 18650's or CR123's in it...

    Hey Defabricata..what the hell is a D26 socket/reflector with a 1794 bulb and AW brand IMR 16430's with an AW soft-start switch?! Sounds like something the Terminator said in a movie..

    Looking to add a cell to my c2 so I don't need to buy a c3 then I could run some 9 volt high intensity incans via lumens factory. Will an a19 from surefire fit on the c2 or how about the lumens factory ex-r any advice is appreciated

    The A19 would go right on with no issues. I prefer the C3 since I can swap in a M60 and AA batteries in a pinch or emergency.

    I just broke the clip on my C2. I had just slipped the light into my pocket, when it snapped off near the top (where it bends) and fell into my hand. I wasn't expecting that to happen.

    Fortunately the light just fell into my pocket and not onto the concrete! I wish this had happened before I called SureFire and got a long clip for my L4.. I really don't feel like calling them back and asking for yet another pocket clip...

    It would of been better for it too fall on the concrete... some love marks are always nice

    It is unfortunate that you had such bad timing with the clips breaking however

    Ooooooo... I Didn't realize that was a possibility... So you add the a19 to the c3? Then the aa's fit?

    The A19 goes onto the C2 making it a 3 cell "C2". Then you can use AA's on your C2 w/ A19 or a stock C3...make sense???

    AA's are the same length as 18500's, two of either fit in a C3/9P tube. An A19 will turn a C2 into a C3 (length wise). An A19 added to a C3/9P is enough for 4x cells, or 2x18650's (when bored).

    BTW, an A14 added to a C3/9P is enough for 3x18500 or 3xAA's.

    Nice info on the A14/3AA's...now I have another project to work on! Thanks EG! I think running a P60L with 3 AA Lithiums will do rather nicely...do the AA's hold up well ( I know the 2A do ok) in the longer body? Or do they lose contact alot without "packing" around the cells?

    Putting an unbored A14 on an unbored C3, and using AA eneloops, 3 cells with the extender rattle more then 2 cells without. Even with the aggressive spring on the Z59, there is not enough tension to keep that much length under control without some kind of aid. It still runs, but shaken back and forth, the cells rattle. A better way to go for a dedicated application would be finding an 18500 sized NiMH.

    BTW, output to an M30 looks good!

    At least give a thought to trying one out.

    Can you point me in the direction of some stainless steel bezels, preferably with no (or minimal) teeth? I looked around but didn't have much luck. Thanks!

    Do you mean SS bezel ring? If so, maybe these: http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/sho...d.php?t=210881

    So anyone know where to find an a19(unbored)? I know that the ha a19 is rare as hens teeth, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I would settle for black too I know they are sparse, but any sources are much appreciated.

    How come tnc and surefire stopped making them?

    Perhaps there are enough of us to rally and convince them to make some?

    You'll definitely have to get one from one of the online carriers...some of them stocked some and still have them, others get them from Surefire...they'll sale them to authorized dealers. Try B & H Photo, Optics Planet, LPS Tactical, or Optics HQ are a few. I actually ordered an A20 (9P to 6R adapter), and came to find out, it was the last one they had in stock...if you think A19's are hard to come by, try getting one of these! Hope this helps, BTW.

    I got a KT-1 on my C3 running a MN15 on primaries.
