Hi

I've been in contact with a local machine shop getting some quotes on 18650 E to C and V10R Titanium battery tubes.
I am posting this thread to gather interest in these items.

To go ahead with either one I will need 20 of the one type to be purchased.

The price will be around $225.00 per piece shipped. The original quote I received would put them in that price range. Im working on trying to get the price down. I changed my design a little to save on tool changes, setup time, and machine time per piece. I should have a new quote in the next few days. This will give me an exact price I will be able to sell these for. But for now I would like to gather interest at the $225.00 price range.

They will have a design similar to the photos below.

The E Head / C Tail 18650 Battery Tubes will be the same price $225.00

I havent gotten a quote for the C series tail cap yet. I assuming they will probably be around $100.00.


Interest count

12 / E-C

7 / V10R

Will you drill and tap for a McG clip (particularly for the v10r)?

Thanks,

That sounds interesting, and there are many options for a head, but would you be producing a tailcap?

Based on the quotes the machine shop gave me something like this would increase the price significantly.

If it happens. I would take at least one 18650 battery tube and one C tail.

Count me most definitely in.

Yes, I purchased one . This body is at least 10mm shorter with a tail standing tail cap. This also uses a spacer but its about 1/3 the length of the one that comes with the FM body. The spacer is delrin with a machined brass nipple.

I'm sure. The 18650 sounds great. Have you used fivemega e head c tail? It requires battery spacer

I would be in for one ti 18650 body and also one ti tailcap once you get them done.:thanks:

Edit: I really can't afford either one, but I'm sure going to try. Hopefully, you can give advanced warning of when they are going to be available. Once I know, then I can scramble my resources to see if I can make it happen.:)
