Does anyone make copper Bezels for Surefires? Wanting a matching bezel for my copper RPM tail.
I´m not sure whether or not RMP made a copper Tailcap for the C/P/Z Series so I assume the OP is looking for a E-Series light (since RPM made both copper and brass tailcaps apart from Ti and HA). I would´nt no any copper bezels but at least you could get a brass one here http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb...amp-A2-L1-tailstands-KT-heads-Retaining-rings
Since most copper is relatively soft, bezels in this metal are less common.
My understanding is that it is also not especially fun to work with, as I have read that it acts kind of "sticky" when turning these parts
This is true. Pure copper, C100, wants to 'smear' instead of cut. It's grabby too, so it will drag your cutting bits in too deep if you are not careful. I'm not familiar enough with the copper alloys, but I know there are some that look just like pure copper but have a much denser matrix. I've made some pills out of C100, it is not enjoyable to work with.
