    The clip profile for the standard clip and the LX2 clip are slightly different. If I can get some good pics on this I will post them. According to SF's website and they state that you don't need the plastic piece for the LX2 clip.
    Standard clip on the right, LX2 on the left. When using LX2 clip, the little plastic piece does not seat all the way down and sticks out a little, It does not interfere with the head, but does cover up the O ring in that spot.

    Well I'm now a C2 addict, despite only having put my first together just this morning when the bored C2 body came from Oveready!



    only problem is the colors on the switch, bezel, and body are all different, but it's not a big deal. I like the feel of this light.

    and I even did the LX2 pocket clip swap like y'all seem to like!!!

    edit: the P60 module I bought for it is a Nailbender XP-G2 OP @ 1.75 amps.

    I picked up a custom anodized HAIII black from oveready everything is uniformly colored and flawless. Was thinking about picking up a bored grey version with original surefire factory anodizing.

    Surely the factory mismatch can't be that bad as pictured. That would kinda suck.

    I also see you scratched yours up already on the edge of that bezel

    Actually from the picture it doesn't look that bad at all to me. I have factory lights that are a lot worse. It's always the luck of the draw when it comes to colours matching with Surefire's adonizing. I've heard that some people like to think of it like a 2 tone metallic paint job on a sports car or something

    Besides, as stocks of C2's dwindle, soon we will not be able to afford to be choosy over the matching of adonising.

    i should've clarified better in my post:

    the body was the only thing that came from Oveready

    the tail and bezel I bought from two different guys on here

    this thread reminded me that I own a C2. I forgot about it because I've had it with a KT1 on near permanently. I've just removed it and thrown on a M2 head, put and m60 in with 2x IMR16340 and a Z59 cap.

    Soon you will have enough C2's to swap around bezels and tail caps so they all match like most of us C2 addicts do.

    Complete C2's built in 2011 (the only source of C2's in 2012+) are the best matched I've ever seen. Very uniform.

    nice, thanks! I hope you saw my clarification that it wasn't yall at oveready's fault for the mismatch, I got all three parts (body, tail, bezel) from different spots lol

    i naively figured they'd all be the same color since theyre the natural HA

    The NIB Solarforce was given to me with a SF purchase. I had no need for it so I turned it into a piece of art.

    I'm having a dilemma with my C2

    It's a bored ha I got from EG.
    UCL - Cryos head - 5B tint Van Quad

    I use to have a FETtie in the tail cap but it broke apart while putting a fresh cell.
    Jessie promised me a new one if it ever broke but he's been silent for months.

    I stole the tailcap & put a shorty zero res in there for my EDC 18500 light & my C2 has a solarforce cap on it.
    I know ....

    Anyways...I'm planning on a new tailcap but want a clicky & also want it to tail stand.

    I used to have a Delrin shroud on mine but I don't like the way they stick out.

    Ideally I'd have a tailcap that was flush and still could tail stand.
    Does this exist besides solarforce?

    Sorry for the ramble...my C2 is still my fav host & is used quite often.
    I'm sure you fellow addicts will have some ideas.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are wanting in a tailcap, but have you considered a Triad ? (or RPM, but those are very difficult to find now)

    You can use the Z48 tail cap they tail stands or the SW02.
    These are pretty cool tail caps and tail stand http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-Compatible%29

    This is my favourite tail standing tail cap I have but they are hard to find now.
    Cannot post pictures lately it's always playing up on me anyway it was the Gamp tail cap

    It sounds like he's after a narrow/lipped cap. These are rare because they are less stable (from falling over), so are expected to be used only to 'shelter' the boot. Triads are pretty sweet on a C2 and feel thinner than the all round delrin shrouds, but won't to ready again until later this year.

    As you already have a ZRS, how about putting that into a Z41 and using a spacer to take up the slack?

    I don't want to interrupt the love fest, but doesn't putting a clicky on a C2 kinda ruin the entire purpose of the C2 as a weapon light? Might as well just use a 6P if you're gonna do that.

    And not all of us use them as weapon lights either, although it's nice to have that option.

    Not really. As long as the clicky switch you get is a forward clicky, and doesn't have a tail shroud. Surefire used to ship the Z58 as standard with their L5. It has a raised lip around the base of the tailcap which stops your palm from being able to push the switch all the way in to click it on whilst using the Roger's technique. You can get past the lip using your thumb. It's not as nice to use as a Z41, but it's do-able.
