    I'd post my black E1e had I not dropped it walking up a concrete staircase...its now a user with hefty marks all over
    I was on campus and had it clipped to the belt, got pushed out by the books I was carrying and fell a couple steps before goingt bezel over tailcap down to the first floor. It survived, the kuku cool white tower survived, but I almost didn't.

    If I can find my black A2 I'll post it with the E1e, seems odd that I can't find it...must've tossed it accidently

    Oh man. I'd be pretty beside myself if I dropped my BK E1e too. Though, it came from the factory with some small anno spots missing from the bezel already.

    Wanted a E2D LED DEFENDER for months, but already had a LX2, thought I would be buying two similar lights. Well, obviously the trigger has been pulled and am happy I did.

    The C2 is from ElectronGuru, it has a Linger Special, Dual XPG from nailbender

    Thanks ninemm,

    Don't think I will ever part with the C2. I plan on buying a A19 extender, with two 18500's to power the new V3 Triple XPG. If ever I'm quick enough to place the order.

    Why yes, it is the 200 lm model. Thanks for noticing.

    Sweet. I'm picking up a Leef 2x18650 body to run with my C2-CJ head + Tail + V3 Triple if I can score one. The outlook on getting one doesn't look good though. They're coming out Saturday and I'll be driving to NJ for a family picnic.

    That will look very cool!

    The next ones will be ready a week from this Saturday, right? The Tenth?

    How can you tell it is a 200 lm version from the older versions?

    Here is my latest. PK-K2 aka Porcupine Kroma with my old PK body. This body took a trip to Michigan, then West Virginia for like a year before returning back to me.

    My BK-HA case

    VTAC-L4 (E2 scoutlight)
    C2 Emerson
    Kroma-Milspec
    Kroma-PP-PK
    U2
    DARPA PKEF









    Here is my latest acquisition. Kroma-Milspec A real milspec.
















    Here is a variant I noticed in my two Milspec bodies. 2x patents vs 5x patents. also the bare spots for engraving are not as deep into the body of the light as newerthe older body. So the channels are closer together.






    It is really apparent here. See how much bare space there on either side of the engraving?

    Do you mean are there fewer models in Black HA compared to 'natural' HA?

    I suppose that relatively few models are offered in HABK compared to natural HA although the E2DL and E1B are noteworthy exceptions.
    It's more that SureFire offered some models in HABK as an option, usually limited by the fact they didn't produce that many batches of them, or they were actually Special or Limited Editions.

    Thanks. Meaning if you gathered all Surefire lights ever made and grouped them together, you will see very few black ones. Right?

    I think the kroma is also predominantly black like the E1B and E2DL.

    Within the popular P/C/Z/M series, models meant for police had shiny type II black. Models meant for military had matte type III gray (natural). Whats rare, and the subject of this thread are lights that are both black and type III. As noted above, this was confined to certain models (U2, x300) or special editions.

    It has to be HA which is type lll and also black. That precludes the black shiny type which is type ll.

    Is the black commonly found on the led AZ2 type ll or lll. It does not look matte and neither does it look shiny to me.

    According to the SureFire website, this model is listed as "Mil-Spec hard anodized" (thus HA Type III). They otherwise typically just state "anodized" for Type II anodizing....

    I noticed that the mil-spec HA on the AZ2 is somewhat similar with the Kroma.

    A whole HA-BK Surefire thread and no UB3T?

    I was thinking the same a little over kill.


    I never get to enjoy this Beast as its one the wife does not know about so it stays in its case.

    Just waiting for the right time to break the bad news to her. Now at least I can just look at this thread and enjoy it whenever I want.

    I sold my Mountain bike to buy this and she has never noticed the missing bike lol.


    I am going camping with all the guys next week so this will be coming with me. But it will be handled very carefully as there is not a mark on it at the moment and I want to keep it that way.
