    Default New D36 drop inn's anybody ?

    The D36 drop in for a M3
    I hate the foam in the head of a M3.
    Why can nobody come up with a reflector that is deeper and have the end of the reflector up against the lens doing away with the foam ?
    I think it would make a great thrower and doing away with the foam is a bonus.
    You would have to think they would make a great seller. We just need somebody to take it on and have the reflectors made
    Anybody.
    While I am on the topic about D36 drop inns where are all the triples & quads?

    I've wondered this myself. Would there be room in a D36 for reflectored quads? What about multi XM-L? I think a 3XML (might be too tight) sitting on a Fivemega D36 body running a 32650 would be a great cargo pocket mega blaster.

    Bumping this thread in the hopes that there is a better solution for those of us wanting to mod our M3 heads

    Bump! I've got two M3 heads sitting around waiting for someone to either come up with a drop-in that does away with the foam or a head/bezel that does away with the foam.

    This would be a big seller drop-in one would think. Good to see you guys giving this post a bump maybe one of the many cool builders out there will take it on.

    Lumens Factory got close with their Seraph head but unfortunately, they made it for the C/P series heads and as such, most LED D36 drop-ins won't work in it!

    What about Nailbender's D36 drop-ins?

    Nailbender states specifically that his drop-ins won't fit in that head. I believe it's stated somehwhere on his D36 sales page. That makes sense anyway because the C/P collar is much smaller than the M collar and so the larger diameter reflector of the D36 drop-ins may have difficulty fitting into such a head.

    I have a few of Nailbenders D36 drop ins. He has made me a XML & SST90 they work great in my M3's. But I hate the foam it’s a pain and falls inside the reflector all the time when doing it up. What I was after was a drop in that you no longer used the foam and by doing so you could have a deeper reflector giving it better throw and making use of all the extra room in the bezel.

    Ah, I see. I thought those D36 drop-ins replaced the shock absorbing system and stock reflector. My own M3 will use an optic, the Ledil Iris.

    I think the problem will be getting a supply of the deep reflector...

    Good news guys! The new Lumens Factory M-Series Mini-Turbohead is just what we're looking for! No more shock-isolation foam! At this time, I'm not sure if it will fit the stock SF reflector to be used with a MD10 tower or Nailbender's drop-ins but there's a good chance that it will! The new and old generation Lumens Factory D36 drop-ins both fit in the head as they do the original M3 head so I think dimensions should be pretty similar! Heat dissipation should be better too!

    This is good news I think ?
    So are you 100% sure that the new LF D36 Generation 2 Reflector Module, XM-L does away with the shock-isolation foam ? That means the reflector would be nice and deep ? It just does not look that deep in the pictures.
    If this is true and it does away with the foam and the reflector is nice and deep than I am buying two straight up. I will send one away for a direct drive SST90 mod.

    Let me know if you can confirm this please.

    cheers

    According to Mark from Lumens Factory in the thread over in the LED Flashlights section:

    Ok after reading that other thread looks like it was to good to be true.
    Still no deep D36 drop inn that takes up the whole area inside a M3 bezel the wait continues.
