    Low powered 1 x CR123a twisty?

    I'm looking for something that's not all that common, at least anymore. I'm trying to find a good, solid light for a specific application. Here are the criteria I'm looking at: 1 x CR123a battery format- I'm really hoping to find a one-cell for size reasons. Twisty- Reliability is a big...

    Sold/Expired WTB or WTT for JETBeam BC10

    I used to have two of them, gave one to my brother when he didn't have any decent lights and the other got stolen from my coat pocket at work.:scowl: They haven't made the BC10 in several years and sadly it seems like dead-simple small 1 x CR123a lights are getting rare nowadays. So I'm...

    TEKNA Splash-Lite

    I'll have to admit that it's taken a while but I'm really taken with this light! The TEKNA Splash-Lite is about as simple and unsexy as it gets. It takes one CR123a battery and is a twisty. TEKNA claims it to be dive rated to 100 feet. It's 3" x 7/8" and weighs only 1.3 oz. The output is...

    Sad news- Marshall Hoots from GoingGear.com has passed

    I recently received an e-mail from GoingGear.com with the sad news that their founder Marshall Hoots has passed away. Many of you will remember his youtube channel and his reviews, usually of LED lights but also camping and hiking gear. He was only 37 years old and leaves behind a wife and two...

    Kind of a cool score!

    I was shopping at a local gun store a few days ago and came upon something pretty cool! They had an old incan Surefire G2Z, NOS. It must have been there for many years as that one hasn't been made for some time. Apparently they must have been tired of counting it every time they did inventory...

    Sold/Expired WTB: Yellow Surefire G2 nitrolon incan

    I am looking for an old-school G2 Nitrolon in yellow to use as a host for a Malkoff M61. It doesn't need to be minty, just serviceable- a user, not a safe queen! Anyone looking to part with one, shoot me a PM!

    Sold/Expired *** ALL SOLD! *** Malkoff MDC, Surefire 6P+ Malkoff M61L & Elzetta Charlie w/M60

    Okay, this is a relisting. Previously I sold these as a package to a gentlemen in Malaysia but due to an error in shipping they were returned to me.:ohgeez: So I am going to list them again. This time, with regrets, I will sell to CONUS only, no exceptions. It's just too much hassle to deal...

    Help with my Solarforce L2M

    So I got a pair of Solarforce L2M hosts in the mail today. They look great but I am having a bit of trouble getting them set up and working. Maybe I'm wrong about the hosts but I figured they're basically 6P clones and that they are designed for P60 dropins and CR123A batteries; is that not the...

    Hmmm...this isn't going to work!

    Okay, today my Solarforce parts showed up and to my chagrin they don't add up to a flashlight. I got the tailcap, 1 x CR123A extender and a bezel. I'd thought the Solarforce stuff was basically a Surefire clone but it's not; the bezel fits a 6P but it won't attach to the body sections of the...

    Lights that use 1 x CR123a and have a one inch diameter body? 3P Clone

    I know there was a similar thread a while back (I posted in it!) but now I can't find it. I am looking at buying or building basically a Surefire 3P clone. Short version- my brother has a new AR and wants a WML on it (basically he's setting his up like mine). He wants bright and a CR123a...

    Sold/Expired *** SOLD! *** E1/Scout M300 1CR123 Head *** SOLD! ***

    For sale I have one E1/Scout M300 1CR123 Head. It's in very good condition, I can't find any marks or blemishes on it. This is the 250 lumen version with just one output level. The tint is advertised by Malkoff as 'cool white' and I concur, but it's certainly not incredibly cool. Only...

    Sold/Expired *** SOLD! *** Elzetta Charlie with M60 engine & Clicky tailcap

    Up for sale is my Elzetta Charlie with the Low Profile Bezel, M60 spot engine and clicky tailcap. Right now it has a Speed Ring Clip attached which I will include with the light. A tad dusty as it sits by my PC for use around the house and I need to dust!:o The light is in superb condition...

    Sold/Expired *** SOLD *** Malkoff MDC & Surefire 6P with Malkoff M61L

    I am looking to sell a couple of lights that I don't really use. The first is a Malkoff MDC with the older style clip. The head is a triple mode that comes on in HIGH, then progresses to MED > LOW. The light is used but in very nice shape. There's one extremely minor nick on the tail that I...

    Anyone here have a TnC host?

    I realize there's a TnC subforum but I'm asking here because it's a grave yard. Posts there seem to garner no replies and e-mail queries directly to the company have netted no reply so I thought I'd see if anyone here can give me some opinions on them. Just looking around over at Ogaz the...

    My new Peak El Capitan- a minor issue?

    I got my new Peak El Capitan a couple days ago! Overall it's a great light; super well made and quite solid. My only issue is the output. I bought the high CRI version knowing full well it would crank out only half the lumens of the cool white model. The output was a bit underwhelming but...

    Pocket clip for Peak El Capitan?

    I have used the custom search but I haven't found a conclusive answer, so can anyone tell me if the Prometheus Ti clip for the Eiger will work on the El Capitan? I've been really wanting an Eiger for a while but on a whim I decided to go with an El Capitan instead for now. My main reasons were...

    If you could design a light for EDC what would it be?

    Obviously there are tons of great lights on the market! But even so, it seems like "perfection" is elusive. Okay, I suppose nothing made my man is going to be "perfect" but that doesn't stop us from striving for it. Like most folks here I'd love to find the mythical Perfect EDC Light. There...

    Your battery stash- how many cells do you keep on hand?

    I moved to a new house not too long ago; while I was rummaging around trying to find batteries for my computer mouse I discovered that a fair amount of them either didn't make it to my new place or got stashed in a box I can't find. The solution? A trip to the BatteryJunction.com website, of...

    Malkoff questions

    I realize I could just ask Gene but I suspect I'll get my answer even quicker from the folks of CPF!;) I've been mulling over the purchase of an MDC when I noticed they also sell just the bodies. What head/heads fit the MDC body? Is it the same size as the Surefire E1b? Does the VME head fit...

    What is your favorite 'obsolete' light?

    Okay, just for kicks, does anyone have a light that they still really like despite it being 'obsolete'? I use quotes because even when a light is really dated from a technology standpoint it still puts out light! I'll start with one that I still like even though it's a dinosaur- my trust ol'...
