Ray- Here ya go. Matte hex bezel, Malkoff M61WL (xp-g) and a G2 twisty tailcap. I wanted the high viz body to have it be easier to find. I believe all the parts except the Malkoff came off the old Marketplace. LOTS of miles on this, thankfully very little use. Stone simple, reliable, perfect for it's intended use. 👍😁 Thanks for the memory lane trip! (It's fluorescent, really. House lighting is really warm...)

Thanks Greg,

Glad you got to enjoy a memory lane trip :)

But the pic I'm looking for is of a fluorescent green G2D/G3D.

This one is really flourescent, Ray. Came with the reflective stickers and all...

Edit- re-read your post. Fluorescent green not the standard fluorescent yellow??? (And obviously not regular yellow G2...) My apologies! I'll show myself out...

Skully has the only one I've ever seen... posted on here or FB a while back on one of the rare surefire threads I think?

Kid9P- darn you! quick grab, I would do unspeakable things for a neon green G3. Great price too. Missed it by a hair. Fun to know it went to you though....

Unfortunately, the neon green body I received was counterfeit.
The head and tailcap were legit, I returned it and he refunded me.

The head and tail thread ends were slightly visually bigger than any of my older(Crosshair Logo) and newer
G2/G3 bodies. I had to forcefully unscrew the head and tailcap off. Threads were fine and undamaged.
I tried several tailcaps and various 6P/G2 bezels, all tailcaps needed force to put on. The 6P/G2 bezels
would only go on less that half of the way. I did not want to force them on.

So if you see it back up on sale @ Ebay, avoid it!

Oh man that sucks!
Yes it does. The seller has been on ebay since 2000.
Over 7,300 positive feedbacks with zero negative/neutral.

Didn't expect that outcome.
What's odd is that he didn't question anything and refunded my payment.

Is it possible he didn’t know it was counterfeit? If it doesn’t ever re-appear, that might indicate he genuinely didn’t know until it was pointed out and returned.
