Didn't know two sided bodies were rare. Thought the Black bodies were the rare units.

I thought it was just like the A2's with the flat sides.. just an older version. "Socom1970" has one with flat sides and the S/N is way lower than mine which was a 2006 model.

You mean flat-flat like the old A2, or like this one?

My U2 has 2 flat sides and one curved side with

"FC CE CERTIFIED
US PATENT PENDING"

I didn't/don't think it's rare :shrug:

Where in the HELL do you get those DARPA lights??? I would LOVE one or more of those. That turbohead 5K light looks really interesting...

What I would like to know is how do you use a bezel down pocketclip with a turbohead flashlight? :thinking:

Yeah it is a toughy. My PKEF/DARPA DEF3C is like that.

Here it is.

It just takes a little bit of luck and research. the picture i posted, with the three lights, is not mine. Just the single one above.




Here you go Tim, the PK Prototype Kroma. Look closely at the one on the left.

:grin2::grin2::laughing:

Actually I usually carry mine with the pocket clip on the inside of the pocket and the flashlight on the outside. It carries quite nicely that way. I guess it depends where one carries it if that is secure enough or not.

I meant flat like the old A2..:wave:
Ah, OK. Then mine has 2 flat sides (on each side of the clip), and what's shown on the pic I posted (opposite to the clip). On one of the flat sides it has the "Digital U2 Ultra" etching, and on the other it has the SF logo.

I guess it's the same as Sgt.'s?
