Thread: M 6 tail cap disassembly need help

  1. #1

    Default M 6 tail cap disassembly need help

    just acquired a soft start switch for an old M6 but need some guidance with the install.
    I'm not sure how to go about pulling tail tail cap apart. Is there a link anywhere that someone can
    send me to?

    thanks

    I took my M6 tail cap apart and it has a plastic retaining ring. It looks different from your photos and I can not fit it together so that it will work. did they perhaps make
    different tail caps?

    the switch I have does not have the large diameter aluminum part that I see in your photos
    do you offer an M6 tail cap that this switch will fit?

    If so I'ld be interested

    thanks for your help so far

    Pics would help.

    All the M6 tail caps are pretty much exactly alike. Sounds like you may have the smaller switch

    thanks

    I have a picture I just have to figure out how to post it

    but looking at my switch and comparing it to those in the link posted by FiveMega they are different switches and mine is smaller

    I guess there are (at least) two versions of the switch I have the small one and need the larger one for the M6.
    I plan to get one of Fivemega's Megalennium bodies and use the switch in that with the M6 head

    anybody looking for a bipin adapter for the surefire M6? I just found one on line and will not be using it

    thanks all for your help

    Fivemega's megalennium models do not have the same tailcap as the original M6 so the more common smaller switch that you have may fit.
