    Got mine. I really like this light engine. I have the v5 wasp, copper and BOSS. Going to sell my copper now that I have a more versatile and up-gradable e-series version.

    The mcclicky conversion is a must. I just love the feel of the classic SF switch.

    I can't recall off the top of my head what the stock SF twistys were able to withstand, amp wise. I realize most folks will use clickys, but I'm curious.

    Scout, I'm still trying to find the actual current rating for the twisty,
    I did find this post about the voltage drop across the switch (Z41) which is very relevant.

    Quote from Oveready...
    The McClicky is good up to about 5 amps. The Z41 twisty will not blow until well above 5 amps, but it will start retarding energy flow (resistance) well before that.

    I know I bang on about Malkoff and Oveready, they are the only lights I use and I hope you won't critcise me for liking quality over quantity."Don't argue with Policemen or Lunatics, don't piss upwind and never crap on your own doorstep". Peter Yetman

    Are the OR Z41 McClicky switches able to handle draw of the E-series V5?

    Yes, all BOSS (on which this head is based) use that exact switch.

    looks sexy ^^ this one paired with a BOSS 35! Perfect match... the bezel design alone will inspire a lot of the BOSSes to grab one.

    Tom, can you please confirm these will run with the surefire tapeswitch saftey?

    This couldnt have come at a better time. I just found a major flaw in my OR v5 X300 mounted on my SCAR with tape switch (flaw in the tape switch, not the OR x300) I want to replace it with a m600 and this head. Thanks buddy.
