    Very happy with the quality!
    Am I correct that the 18650 extension tube has a surface that is similar to the L2M one and not like the generic L2 one?

    could I be pointed to a link for purchase (I guess it will be in solarforce-sales)
    (what I found in there does not show the surface well - The light in my sig uses the rougher style)

    Yeah, why do some L2s have different knurling? I like mine, has the pointed diamond knurling, and pointed square on the tailcap. Don't know what machinists would call it, but that's how I'd describe it. Did they just switch to a new knurling style? Mine's pretty old, by the way.

    My L2's are a couple of years old I guess (I have a silver one and a three sand ones) and the extension tube is a recent purchase from SF Sales and the knurling is just like what's on the L2M's I just got. Not coarse and blunted like on my L2's.

    It seems posting pics on here has really slowed down. Of course, I haven't been adding any either haha. Finally had some time today, so here we go:

    I call this one the "Predator." It also has a DD XM-L by Vinh pushing well over 1000 lumens.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    This has become one of my favorites of all my lights and I belt carry this on my trips. Could have sworn I cleaned it before I took this pick haha. It consits of an L2T body, L2-S9 switch, SS bezel, UCL lens, 5A McClickie, and a Vinh XM-L 5000k tint 7 mode drop pushed at 3.42 amps.
    [IMG][/IMG]


    This is another one of my favorites and has become my walk light. It has possibly the most beautiful beam I have ever seen. I had Vinh mod this one with a 2.7-4.5v driver so I can run full power with just one 18650. It pushes 3.85 amps, which gives it about 1,000 lumens, and his 3 level is awesome as on the low I can point it at something close and not hurt my eyes. The medium, pushing about 360 lumens is great for walks as it gets good throw as well lot's of spill and has good run time. High is of course very impressive, and at 400 meters it will light up a barn or house, and I can easily see and distinguish different models of cars/trucks.

    Current collection of my Solarforce lights, lots with Nailbender and Vinhnguyen54 drops and mods.

    Thanks! Yes, it is gold plated (coated). Two over is one that has been chromed. Both done in a run by modamag and are real eye catchers.

    Here are a couple of close up pics:

    He he, it was a nice parcel to open.

    I built these up for workmates who wanted decent lights. (police)

    The L2M is mine for my own collection and has a three mode XP-G with SMO and the B6 flat stainless bezel.

    All the L2T's have three mode, memory XM-L's with SMO. One of the L2P's has the same. They also have the pocket clips and some have the B5 stainless toothy bezels as requested.

    The other two L2P's are stock, and with three mode memory XP-G's.

    My own L2T that I carry at work has the three mode Ultrafire XM-L which has more oomph than the SForce ones, the pocket clip, GITD tailcap and B6 bezel.

    These are great lights IMO and the ability to upgrade or replace parts as necessary / desired is a great feature of the P60 format.

    Interesting. As much as I love my Solarforce lights and think they are the best bang for the buck, I've never considered them premium lights or thought LEOs would rely on them like that. I'll be curious as to how you/they feel about them and how they perform over time.

    I've been carrying one for some time and had no issues. Further, I hunt and use SForce lights on my guns, including shotguns, and they hold up OK if mounted right.

    Further, I have a AA backup light and a Streamlight on my handgun if it all goes pear shaped.

    IMO SForce quality is quite good now compared to a couple of years back.

    Yeah, I would agree with that. Thanks for the imput. I love the fact that there are still such great performing lights out there that don't cost an arm an a leg. Of course, high cost is relative.

    There it is. I was wondering when one of these was going to pop up here. Thanks for the thread on this too.
    BTW, I got mine in today, along with the FH-2 pouch. This pouch fits the SF throw heads well (as they are meant to do), and will hold up to a 3xCR123 cell light, but not 2x18650s.

    Hey now, that's the setup I was going to use with my M3 (minus the orange cap) haha. It looks like in this pic that the L2T body actully doesn't match as well as the L2T body I have, or is that just the pic and in reality it matches really well. Did you get yours as an individual body or a whole light? How do you like the S10 switch?

    Yeah, the head and tail is a tad shinier than the body but it's no biggie for me. I bought them individually, L2T host and the M3 head. The S10 is the stock switch of the L2T. I like it but I will change it to S12 coz I prefer recessed tailcaps and tailstanding.
