One of the things with the front gasket of the Alpha is how much to tighten it. Not enough or too much can both lead to water intrusion. I knew I'd over tightened mine when the optic cracked on the outside edge.

The new color looks much more better!

I like the color, 18650 battery acceptance, and the shift to a higher K output, but I cannot buy another Elzetta flashlight until they fix their clip design. The “speed clip,” while super advantageous in many ways according to them, quite frankly, sucks. It’s very bulky, provides a poor “in the pocket” carry, and isn’t at all user friendly with its installation.

When that gets updated, I’ll get the new Bones...

Here is a video of the USMC logo being engraved on three Charlie C133 models.

The sound is a slightly more musical version of scratching your fingernails on a chalkboard.

Sounds like one of my buddies favorite modern day super-fast-go heavy metal bands trying to do a Jimmy Hendix solo. :candle:

I have the new Blue Bones! I like that it is a bit brighter, but I am not crazy about the tint. In real world use its not bad but I really prefer the nice warm tint of my old bones.

I ordered some lanyard rings that now come with a great wrist strap, some Battery Stations and a couple more RCR's on Thursday night. They arrived today.
It seems like USPS priority has returned to normal.

I'm using those G-Line numbers more and more. I'm using Z-Line numbers less and less. So I don't see a blue Bones headed my way anytime soon. I never thought the day would arrive I'd say "the Z-Line are just too big".

I grew up with 3D Maglites so those tiny little 6P sized flashlights simply amazed me for years. Yet the 1aa G-Line gets used a lot. The G-RCR too. So much that the Bravo AVS hi/lo feels like a 2C Maglite to me anymore.

Oh there's still lots of times for a Bones and Bravo for me but they have been relegated to niche lights now that Elzetta colaborated with JetBeam and had those even smaller lights built.

The Elzetta web site contains the message "Improving our site and our product line. Check back soon to find out how." Any idea how long their web site has been out of service?
