Received this 120p that has been lost outside in the weather for awhile. Cleaned it up but the clip will get replaced as the rust did a number on it.

Installed a 5oook Samsung 351D for the almost perfect neutral white tint. Anyway on with the photos.

Very nice! Looks like a testament to the build quality of the light the internals still look like they're in excellent condition with just a little bit of corrosion on the tail spring.

Yes, I do love my NovaTac just not in its stock form. Mine ended up acting up, and I have seen others do the same. Gutted mine and replaced the driver with a 1.4amp, clicky switch, and run an 18350 battery.

10 years (aprox) w/ my novatac and she is still going strong.

Worth the effort to clean that one up.
