Did any one notice the sale of an orange C2 and E2e? Last night on ebay.
$2,425! Once in a lifetime opportunity. Perhaps we'll hear from them here. Gotta be a member.

Missed that, did they sell for that price?

Just acquired this. Model T1 head on an old school 6R body/talicap. Not collecting Surefires nowadays but the deal was too good to pass.

I picked up another E2e on eBay. I thought it was unusual to find no engraving or s/n. I'm no Surefire expert, is this very common?

Yes, missing engraving on both sides.

The tail does have Surefire engraving. The body looks identical to a Surefire! I am comparing to other Surefire bodies and the machining looks the same.

Does anyone have a confirmed Lumens Factory body or knows how to distinguish them other than the engraving?

The long clip does look like the Lumens Factory...

edit to add: Are there any non-engraved E2e bodies known to exist?

I wondered about the unengraved E2e's too. One seller had four of them, all black. As I remember they all had the long clips. The same seller also had several honest E2e HA's and one in Black, all with short clips. And for a moment, also had for sale ten mint Black E series heads.

Lumens Factory bodies look more like HA BK with a flat finish. The ones for sale had some sheen to them. I am wondering even now if I shouldn't have picked one up.....

I took a close look at the machining and found it looked identical to other Surefire a I have. I ended contacting the seller and he showed me some compelling evidence that he worked at Surefire for several years. He told me the light I have was part of a overrun and that it was pulled before engraving. I'm super happy to have this rare Surefire!
