Would be interested in a bored C2, white, naturally. Not quite sure if this is something amenable to special order.

One question,

If I get the following items from the OVEREADY site will it be a working flashlight? Or will I need something else to make it work (aside from batteries)?

Malkoff M61 (cool/neutral/warm) - Single Level Drop In (3.4 - 9.0V)
Engine Model: M61 (cool)
SureFire 6P - Bored Custom HA - Black
Bezel: 1. Z44 (standard)*
Bezel Ring: 9. Crenelated Steel - Black*
Lens/Window: 2. Ultra Clear Lens (UCL)*
Matching Extender: 0. No Extender*
Tail Cap: 2. Black Triad (type III)*
Tail Switch: 1. SF Twisty - Black

Another question, which is better, 6P with 1x 18650 battery or 9P (or 6P with A19 extender for that matter) with 2x 18500 in terms of runtime with the Malkoff drop in?

Never mind, the very first post of this thread answers my question...

We are starting a GID/white batch next month. It will have at least 6P's and C2's!

Sorry, starting a production batch, not finishing it.

Spent September taking apart 400+ hosts. :sweat:

Hi ElectronGuru, this may seem like a silly question as I know that the SF C2's are discontinued by SF. I just picked up a C2-HA Grey that is fantastic and I'm kicking myself now since I spotted the C2-HA Black before but didn't pull the trigger. :ohgeez:

This may be wishful thinking but I'm wondering if you have any more inventory of C2's in HA Black.

Custom HA finishes require bare or factory type II finishes as a starting point (can't HA, HA).

I managed to secure a quantity of type II C2's, that are currently being bored. Prepping bezels and tailcaps for custom HA is time consuming and not yet complete. As this will be the last run, something particularly special would be appropriate. We are considering a run of black HA, but HA of one or more colors may also be possible.

In an other thread you were talking about a orange GITD host. Any plans on this or is this plan stopped?

Stopped. The daytime look and feel was good, but nighttime performance was inadequate.

Thanks for the update & tease ElectronGuru... It will be a sad day when 6P / C2 / M2 SF hosts will no longer be available. But, I am looking forward to seeing what you will be doing with your very last run...

Not that this would sway your ideas but, if you are considering doing a black HAIII, you definitely have a customer and my finger is on the pp switch ready to go!
