    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...
    Glad you were finally able to get one...the C2/3 is about the only light that can pull off mis-matching black and HA, and still look good.

    Thanks! I am really enjoying my new SF. Even if the body is used.

    Can't stop playing with it!

    Now that I have a C2 (the led version), is there a expedient something that I can use to cover the lens from dust when the light is not in actual use; and what is a good holster for the C2?

    I think a great holster is the SureFire V20 Nylon fixed-loop holster. The pics on the SF web page don't illustrate it very well at all. I've used the same version (but longer) for my SureFire C3 and I really like it. Very high quality and great retention.

    I've handled their detachable nylon holster (velco-style detachable) and I wasn't as impressed, not quite as secure and a little bulky width-wise.

    I LOVE my c2 ha, I had it bored for 18650 and have a nailbender super p7 warm tested at 550 otf with an aw 18650!

    My only gripe is that it seems a little topheavy like it could easily get snagged out of the pocket, maybe I'm just being paranoid but a c3 might ride a little deeper and make me feel more secure

    lol, I'm starting to think SF infuses their anno with crack because these things are addictive! Everytime my wife gripes about how many lights I have I show her threads like this with entire collections of the same light and tell her I'm only mildly addicted hahahaha


    I remember that sig from when I first started on the forum, if I only could go back in time and tell myself to pay heed to it!

    I ordered a couple Titanium bezels from Russtang and they showed up in the mail today, I took my bezels apart Friday and they've been sitting and waiting patiently for the bezels to show up.





    DimeRazorback, I followed your advice and the C2 HA BK is also showing off it's M30W.

    HEY! I've got a C2 body headed my way tomorrow. I needed a host for my SST-50.
    Now I can be a C3 and a C2 addict!

    EVERYONE NEEDS A C3!

    The 50 can deliver a clean beam profile in a small smooth reflector and can give you some throw while delivering a lot of lumens without being as floody or as power hungry as the 90 is. I think the 50 is the best for my use right now.

    I have SO many host bodies I can swap out at random but for this particular C2 body I'll leave it unbored and use primary cells. I'm going to take advantage of the full thermal mass of the C2 because the SST's are pretty good at generating heat.
    I do the testing for ElectronGuru and Moddoo's joint products and one of the biggest things for them is the boring out business. I like the bored out 9P about the best of all but the C2 bored is a close second. It's a shame I bought all of those Leef bodies before they came along!

    I am a flood whore so the 90 is totally my bag =)

    I have been loving my NB warm super p7 in my bored c2, I have another c2 on it's way that I will leave standard for the rcr123/primaries...good thinking!

    The M30 will blow, but the M60 is good up to 9.0 volts and the M60 MC-E is good up to 13.0 volts.

    thanks, is the m60L brighter than a P60L, if so what is the loss of runtimes in a c3?

    I treasure my "C2"
    -G2 head
    -L5 body
    -L6 tail
    -solarforce dropin
    Does this count as a C2?

    I got my first C2-HA from a trade in MP (thanks bestcounsel!) a week ago and I am still impressed!
    It's definitely the best P60 host. I can't put the damn thing down! This thing is a keeper!

    Here's the latest HA color, in the flesh. Lighter than the last batch, with just a hint of green.

    The latest C3 is darker and not quite as green as the latest C2.
