I'ts a shame I've already got a non-bored 2-cell host otherwise I would've jumped on the Oveready bored host immediately! Mine's got an M61SHO in it using AW 16340s.
Enjoy, and let us know what you think when you get it. :thumbsup:
Can someone that bought the Oveready Elzetta report back here if the tube is a front or rear loading setup?
Is there a retaining lip at the front?
I found front loading a little tedious. You need to ensure that the oring is seated in properly before inserting the drop in. Then you need to ensure that the drop in and oring does not shift while you screw in the bezel to the tube.
Rear loading will resolve this.
Yes, these are rear loading with a retaining lip
In the 3 cell setup, I tried using the 17500 cells but it appears to be a tad too long for the switches to work.
Did you find this to be a valid reason?
Or must we use the IMR 18490 cells to get it to work?
Yeah, boring doesn't 'fix' any length issues. Protected 18500 are also a tad to long.
IMR 18490's work a treat, and put the - end about where the end is on 18650 in the 2 cell setup.
Thanks for confirming that.
Elzetta's tolerances and free play maybe a tad tighter than 9P and MD3.
I also discovered when used with a malkoff drop in, the 2 cell bezel does not screw in all the way. There is a gap between the bezel and body. Use the same setup with a 3 cell, it is a nice fit without any visible gaps.
All bored Elzetta hosts come with lens + lens ring + two head o rings (one red, one black).
I use the M61 lens and head gasket that I bought from MK for my 2-cell with M61W. Works great!A friend bought one of the 2 cell Elzetta host from you. He tells me that it does not come with the small oring that sits in the circular groove on the bezel inner font. The oring that keeps water from coming in from the bezel front.
You indicate in your post that a lens ring is included. Which is ring that is included?
If not provided, what is the oring size that sits in between the drop in and the lens. Thanks.
