Just picked up a Z3 and decided to save the stock halogen bulb for a rainy day. I popped in some 17500’s and an old m60. I’m not crazy about the bezel though. Doesn’t appear to be original (plain, no markings and the lens has a bubble on it). I might keep the tailcap stock and throw something on them with a mcclicky in it

My “lego”s are just g2, g2 led head, yellow g2, g3 and a 9p with various M61s... as follows:
M61NL, M61WL, M61WLL, M61WLL and a 219b LL.

I have more surefires and more Malkys of course but that’s it for lego-ing!

It's almost strange not having any, since all of my earlier Malkoffs(M60W, M60WF, M60WL, M60WLF, M60N, MD60) were originally in SF hosts, starting with a Z3 w/black M2 bezel, then C2, G2, G2Z, Z2, 6P, 6PD, 9P, M3T, and E2D w/VME head.
Now it's all Malkoff hosts, but I sometimes miss having those bored Z3s and C2-HAs!

I have a few, but this one remains the most unique and dedicated to a specific use;

3PZ 3






3PZ 4



Malkoff E2XTD head on an Oveready E35 body, a SF Z41 tailcap with ZeroRez insert powered by an IMR 18500 cell. Operation is squeeze in a cigar hold for momentary operation, accomplished by backing off the tailcap just a bit from constant on.

This is strictly a defensive use light which at 70k candela will temporarily deprive someone of their vision in a low-light environment. A lot of intensity in a small package.

Looks like a Brother P-Touch. They're legit, I've owned several over the years. Highly recommended.

I am in love with the C2 with a malkoff. I have the M61W, M61WL and M61WLL so I have great options to use. Primarily I go with the M61W and a 16650.

Now if there was only a way to have a high low ring on this head it would be icing on the cake.

As soon as I got the VME I played around to see what M61’s would be practical to use with a single cell body. I was a little sad that a P60 lamp didn’t fit (not that it would be super practical, but fun).

I like the WLL with a 16340. That one ought to give acceptable runtime and is a nice general purpose brightness. The WLL has around 20 or so lumens with a 123 so maybe that would be a good long running battery vampire option. There is more experimenting and testing to be done.
