I can now officially say: the Tad Customs Mag bulb will melt the reflector WITHIN 45 SECONDS! I will use this light with just the standard bulb and three Ansmann NiMH C cells of 4500mAh.
Any metal reflector is not available??
Sorry about your reflector :-(
Tell you what,
This is such a neat light to carry...
I LOVE it's size and it reminds me of an XL mini-ma$, lol... With just a dab or two of the Vibra-tite VC-3 on the threads it has a good amount of resistance on the threads and another option would be a fatter o-ring too.
Maybe the next "CPF" mods will be this little guy and a metal reflector.
I am loving the Streamlight TL-3 bulb with the hand opening of the reflector opening. Also the light turns on and is within spot focus quickly due to the filament height difference.
