    Anyone know of smooth reflector for magicshine?

    Original magicshine (mj808) replaced p7 with an XM-L2 looking for a smooth reflector for it. All these clones seem to come with smooth, do they fit the original magicshines? Any pointers as to which one i need, there are hundreds of reflectors on fasttech/DX. Thanks for any help.
