I just bought a MD60 off CPFM. To be honest, the XM-L is greenish. I am sitting here wondering should I swap out the XM-L to the newer XM-L2 or maybe say XP-G2 or Nichia 219?
Also, I noticed that Malkoff website is currently selling the XM-L2 MD60 rated at 650 lumens. Any difference in the drive current between my (older) module and the newer module with XM-L2 emitter?
Well here's my new MD60 build. I do have a Z49 coming to replace the current tailcap. The MD60 fits perfectly in the KT1, however there is a small gap when screwing the body on to the collar of the head. It appears that the base of the LED tower bottoms out on the body where it steps down to hug the batteries - and I can't tighten it further to close the gap. This last photo shows this gap. Not a big deal to me and I can always add a GITD o-ring someday to fill the gap.The beam is awesome! The LED is centered in the reflector perfectly to produce a very tight and focused hot spot and it still has some spill to go along with it. This baby throws like champion. :devil:
I have the same setup only with a Triad Tail cap from Oveready/Moddoo with a McClicky installed by OR, and I love it!!!--Redled
I think you're better off reaching out to nailbender and seeing if he can still do a custom LED tower. The MD60 didn't throw nearly as far as the MN20/MN60 (M6/M4), and the tint was pretty bad.
I'm sure it's still a bulletproof drop in, but the color leaves a lot to be desired.
