    Did any one notice the sale of an orange C2 and E2e? Last night on ebay.
    $2,425! Once in a lifetime opportunity. Perhaps we'll hear from them here. Gotta be a member.

    Picked up a gunmetal E2 Executive to go with the E1


    PK said the gunmetal stuff was aimed at the Japanese market.

    Yes they did. I'm always amazed at how many items sell on fleabay and then we never hear from the person who bought them.

    Just acquired this. Model T1 head on an old school 6R body/talicap. Not collecting Surefires nowadays but the deal was too good to pass.

    I picked up another E2e on eBay. I thought it was unusual to find no engraving or s/n. I'm no Surefire expert, is this very common?

    Is it missing engraving on both sides?

    If so, it looks like an aftermarket Lumensfactory body and tail to me. They make nice stuff!! I've been meaning to pick one up.

    Yes, missing engraving on both sides.

    The tail does have Surefire engraving. The body looks identical to a Surefire! I am comparing to other Surefire bodies and the machining looks the same.

    Does anyone have a confirmed Lumens Factory body or knows how to distinguish them other than the engraving?

    The long clip does look like the Lumens Factory...

    edit to add: Are there any non-engraved E2e bodies known to exist?

    I wondered about the unengraved E2e's too. One seller had four of them, all black. As I remember they all had the long clips. The same seller also had several honest E2e HA's and one in Black, all with short clips. And for a moment, also had for sale ten mint Black E series heads.

    Lumens Factory bodies look more like HA BK with a flat finish. The ones for sale had some sheen to them. I am wondering even now if I shouldn't have picked one up.....

    I took a close look at the machining and found it looked identical to other Surefire a I have. I ended contacting the seller and he showed me some compelling evidence that he worked at Surefire for several years. He told me the light I have was part of a overrun and that it was pulled before engraving. Iím super happy to have this rare Surefire!
