    My new P1.

    Here's mine. I ordered the desert tan model, though this seems to fall between the tan and the green models??

    Anyway, I'm happy with it. Ran it as a search light out hunting foxes last night, the three mode low volt SF XP-G barely made the thing warm, and winked out at just over two hours use.

    If you're talking about the bezel, the crenelations, no. If you're talking the P60 head/housing, yes.

    Very true. I was thinking just the bezel housing for the P-60 type drop ins. The bezel ends (smooth or crenelated stainless steel) no. I don't know why, but they are not threaded the same.

    Yes, it seems to be a bit dark, doesn't it?

    I wasn't home when it was delivered, I called home from work and told my wife to get it out of the packet and have a look.

    "It's sort of greenish brown....." she said.

    So I asked my son who is a soldier and should know the difference between tan and olive.

    "It's sort of greenish brown...." he said.

    And it kind of is, though with more direct sunlight on it, it does look more brown than green. It's certainly not that light desert tan I expected.

    I dunno where you saw Tan as one of the P1 color options. On the SF Sales website the color options listed are Black, Yellow, Brown, and Green.

    There's "brown" and there's "brown", isn't there? The "brown" P1 looks like a typical desert tan colour on the site. I ordered "brown" and what I got was the colour above - which doesn't look very "brown" nor does it look "green".

    TBH I think it's closer to "green" and I'm beginning to wonder if I was sent the wrong colour host, as there's no indication on the package as to what colour the light inside should be.

    For those who have a L2T SS, can you pose a picture of it without the rubber cigar grip ring?

    I'm ready to get one but would like to see a pic first coz I prefer it without the rubber cigar grip ring. Thanks!

    @Pat364, Thanks!

    Nice to see that it has straight tube without the grip ring compare to the regular L2T which it doesn't.

    @LV426 those are nice. Your green one is definitely more green than my "brown" one which seems to look a little green in certain light.

    Thanks, I'm really pleased with them.

    Yes, it's "dark green" when looking at it (and side-by-side with the MXP sheath), there's no doubt about that.

    Looks neat. Haven't seen much of "pocket ripper" SS rings on L2T head, most people keep on stock flat ones. Willing to share how did you get that black finish on SS?

    BTW do you have any beamshots of your L2 with diffuser optics?

    Cheers,

    Tam

    Tam, I've make it with hard alkali (Sodium carbonate + Sodium hydroxide + Sodium silicate). Part heated to cherry color, than dip to alkali (be mega carefully with chemistry! It's dangerous.) After five to ten bath it painted black. Than last bath with oil. Enjoy.



    And about beamshotes: here this optic wit XM-L compared with Carclo Narrow XP-E triple (triple on left)

    Thanks man, I think I'll skip chemical treatment and heating, it sounds dangerous and it probably is

    As for the diffuser, I've put a single layer d-c-fix film diffuser (glue removed with acetone) over my XR-E, and beamshots look similar to those you've made (perhaps a little bit more sidespill on mine, with a slightly purplish tint).

    Cheers,

    Tam
