    Old Style Pila GL3 HOLA Problems

    I have the same issue with my GL3 I cut one of the removable outer springs to 1 coil. I bent it a bit so it isn't flat and I adjust it until I get good contact. Now it works and is very bright. I also stretched the inner spring a tiny bit.

    Any hands-on with the Night Ops Falcata 9v vs. the Surefire 9P/C3/Z3/M3 etc?

    I wonder if the 9v Falcata will accept PILA cells? That would make it a recharegable and a great duty style light

    is the pila gl3 really 200lumens?

    First generation PILA lights were the same as Wolf-Eyes. So where the lamps. The latest generation is 100% different. The new lamps use a machined Aluminum reflector rather than the Cintered metal/ceramic reflector. The new PILA lamps will be a bit more durable The PILA's are now anti roll...

    tactical lamps... why a new reflector with each one?

    The integrated lamp/reflector design does have an advantage over the bi pin design. It is a bit more stable/robust. I have had Streamlights and on several occasions the bulb has come loose from inertia. I have had some bi pins that get bent. The integrated lamp/reflector design has none of...
