    Hi Peter,

    I came across the MD1 a few months ago, and asked a lot of naive questions of folks. Thanks to their kind answers, some of which may have been from you, I went ahead and got an MD2 with the new wider opening mdx head and a Sportac P60 2 level triple nichia drop in. The Sportac fits the new head perfectly - its just wide enough for the triple, and a fantastic light. The only Malkoff that fits that new head currently is the throw head that normally goes with it, and I'll get that some other time, giving me both options - throw or spill. In the meantime, I ordered an MD1 body from Martin around mid-November. Still waiting eagerly for it. When it comes, I plan to use it with the tail cap and head from the MD2, and an IMR 18350 battery. I have two brightness levels now, and once I get a hi/low ring, I will have 4 brightness levels. I have found for a pocket flashlight, while I use it a lot, I don't need to use it for much time each time I use it, and not often at the brightest level, so the 18350 battery should be fine.

    While waiting for my MD1, I came across the ZeroRez tail cap, and thought it might be nice to put it on the MD1 and get even shorter, or conversely, be able to use an 18500, like you did.

    Forgive me for bothering you for further details, but I think you are saying that to use the ZeroRez, I should get the ZeroRez short Z41 Brass insert, and then get a Surefire z41 tailcap, take out the spring and button, and put in the ZeroRez brass insert to make a ZeroRez tailcap that will fit a Malkoff MD1 tube?

    Eggzactly.
    z41, that's what I was trying to remember.
    There's a guide on the OR site telling you how to fit it.

    Do I need a o-ring between zrm switch and z41 tailcap to waterproof? Thanks!

    In a word, tes.
    OR normally provide an o ring which seems the same size as the ones that fit in the groove on the tail threads.


    I've found this a bit hit and miss as it can buckle when being tightened.
    I use a smaller o ring around the bit if ZR that protrudes from the cap.





    Clamp it up tight and you're fine.

    Yes, we recommend a 018 size

    Thanks Pete!

    This shouldn't happen if the oring is installed into the tailcap (down into the corners) and then the brass is inserted naked. Both should provide a seal but may not level out at the same point.

    Sorry, we custom make them and have no dealers so its not possible for google to show other options. And demand has slowed since the last run so we have no plans to make more.

    If you don't need momentary, ZRS + spacer is also an option:
