Found this old parts from a Surefire 6P. Any suggestions what do do with them? Maybe a body for 18650 or 18350? Any suggestions for body?

In the highly unlikely event you find an 18650 C-C Leef body for a low price, that would be another option.

This can be an option but I think the more simple FiveMega design is nicer.


I'm trying do find an original 6P to bore for 18650 but couldn't find any.

Found some more parts. If I remember correctly I was trying to lego a 3P 15 years ago but didn't getting it to work. Anyone know what part it is? Is it possible to get it to work with some kind of adapter? Or other lamp module?

I have 6P's for sale. The entire light. But since you don't need an entire light I would just scan ebay and other places on occasion for a 6P body. Sometimes on the clones the threads and machining is questionable, so keep that in mind of you buy something like a Solarforce clone.

He'd be running the risk of getting an early example that isn't bored out to take an 18650 cell.
Then I will machine it to fit 18650. I don't know how people normally do to make the inner diameter bigger? I have a lathe I can use to machine it to diameter 18,8 mm

Look on Ebay. I lucked out years ago and picked a new one up for 34$ or so.
This seller have new 6P for god price but unfortunately not shipping to my location. I guess I just have to be patient.
