If anyone can point me in the direction of where I can find a lens for a surefire U2 that would be greatly appreciated. I've had the light modified with a brighter LED and then I dropped it and shattered the lens, so Surefire is not going to cover this under warranty. But I have no idea where to find a replacement lens. As it is I have an amazing flashlight that I cannot use and its a real bummer to have this light meet the end of its days like this. I'm hoping it can be revived. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thats a good lead. He must be busy. I did email a couple times over the last couple months to see if they had one that would fit but I haven't heard back. I have had good luck with a couple of lenses from them in the past. So I am hoping it works out. But if anyone has any other sources in the meantime, please let me know.

Assuming you get in touch with flashlightlens-dot-com, look for the UCLp AR acrylic. Excellent light transmission and impact resistance.
It's available in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses. I have noticed sometimes it takes them a while to respond to emails. Good luck!

I compared by U2 to a few other lights I own and believe a Cryos lens is pretty close. But since I do not have a (Cryos 31mm) cannot say for certain. It's a wee bit larger than the Streamlight ProTac, which according to the FLL chart is about 1mm smaller than the Cryos and my U2 is about 1mm larger than the ProTac.

Yes, its definitely domed. This does make it a bit harder to find a replacement. Still hoping to hear back from flashlightlens.com

So, long story short. Flashlightlens does not make a lens for the U2. But the good news is the 31.52mm UCL lens that they make actually is pretty close. It is a little bit thicker than the OEM lens. And it is not domed like the OEM lens. But it is close enough where I can hardly tell, and now my favorite modded light is working again. Thanks again for your help!
