    An imitation of DimeRazorback's 'post your Surefire LX2 registry' only this time it's about the UB3T. There are more around by now since every now and then a new UB3T-thread from someone receiving his/her light pops up. If the mods allow it, and I don't see why not, please let's see what 'we' (CPF-people) have so far. One rule: pic[s] or it didn't happen. Well, if possible. So pjandyho yours is valid.

    I'll start:

    B01491 here. It's from the early part of this year.

    Do something alone and it's weird, do it with others and it's a club.

    B037XX, new optics, purchased December 2012 from a fresh shipment just in from Surefire. Interesting how the dates and serial numbers vary.

    I saw one with an X serial number. What's the spec on that?

    u2u, do you have a pic of your serial number? Does anyone know, just like LightJunk wonders, why the XX serial number?

    Thanks for the reply iapyx. u2u put the XX serial number because he didn't want to reveal the digits.

    What I meant was the alphabet in front with the X follower by 5 digits ie X01234. Maybe it's the first release but I'm just wondering are the specs different from the current one. It's the one without the "UB3T" on the body like the pictures.



    Most I saw has the UB3T on the body like below.



    I checked the internet and there are a few models, the 400, 600 & 800 lumens version.

    LightJunk, I had an idea that that was what you did, putting 'XX' at the end to not reaveal its digits. I wonder why you wouldn't want to do that, but that's just me.

    400, 600 and 800 lumen versions?? I don't think so. As far as I know there are two versions. Both 800 lumens. The only difference is the different optics. The first few have a narrower beam AFAIK. But Correct Me If I Am Wrong.
    The 400 and 600 lumen versions you mention never came out. The UB3T was to have 400 lumen at first then 600 lumen. It was delayed and delayed and delayed and finally it would come out. Yet there was another delay. Newer LED with an output of 800 lumen. So, 800 lumen max and this never changed. Again, CMIIAW

    iapyx, I searched e**y and there are 3 versions on sale. 400, 600 and 800 lumens. After reading your reply, I'm more confused now.

    I searched CPFMP and came out with this the 400 lumens version. That's the one I'm talking about. Without the UB3T lettering on the body.

    http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/sho...umens-Version)

    I hope I'll be getting the 800 lumens version one. I just bought a used one with the X in front of the serial number which happens to look like the one in the link above.

    I may be wrong, but with some level of strong conviction, and almost 100% certainty, I say that I don't think there was a 400 lumen UB3T in the first place. AFAIK it was already 800 lumen when it first came to the market. The 400 lumen marking you see on the box could be printed there way before Surefire decided to change the actual specs to 800 lumens. As what iapyx had said, the 400 and 600 lumen version got scrapped even before it came into production. All I know was the M3LT used to go for 400 lumen and got upgraded to 800 lumen when the UB3T came out. I prefer the tint color of the older 400 lumen M3LT though.

    That's what I gathered from the net, only 800 lumens version were released into the market. The box stated 400 lumens, that's why I'm not convinced. Since both of you are almost 100% certain then I'm with you guys.

    Thanks iapyx & pjandyho Really appreciate the replies and infos. Now I can sleep soundly with 800 lumens in mind

    I do hope that I am right. Don't worry too much about it and start playing with it.

    LightJunk, I checked that link of yours. The least I can say is that it's weird to see the box says 400. As far as I know there never was/has been a 400 lm version. Why don't you call Surefire and ask them.don't mail them. CALL them. They can give you the right info. 400 lumen would really surprise me. It can't be, but again just ask them.

    Edit: look on e**y, you'll see it says 400 lumen, but when you have a closer look at the specs it says from 2-800 lumen. I'm now even more convinced there are only 800 lm versions.

    Yes I just noticed that whatever the box says the specs is still the same 2-800 lumens. So you guys are right.

    I e-mailed Surefire regarding the X serial number & 400 lumens issue. The ,Tech Support Rep replied that yes, it's the 400 lumens version that shouldn't have make it into the market. It's a prototype model.

    It seems like I'll be having this prototype 400 lumens version. That should be rare. I can't wait.

    LightJunk, have you received your UB3T yet?
    I am curious if it's really 400 lm. Would be very very rare.
    And if it is, if I'd be you, I'd return it to SF and ask for a 800 lm replacement.

    iapyx, finally it's with me. I really like it though it's not the 800 lumens version. I'm keeping it since it rare. Comes with very nice serial number X00100. Pictures below.

    The newer optic improves spill. How much more, I have no answer, as there are no side by side comparison as far as I know. The new optic beam shots can be found around here.

    Since I use mine with the diffuser, I prefer the old lens for the large, less-spill hot spot.
