Just wondering if anyone has noticed this before.

If I use either of my Z58's or a Fury click switch on most of my 6P, 9P, G2, or G3 lights they cause flickering during activation. Most of the 6P's have M61 variants in them, the 9P has an M91. It will also flicker with a P60 lamp. As I push on the switch, the light will start out dim, and then get brighter as I push. The activation/flicker range is very short and they just turn on after that range.

I've played musical tailcaps trying to see if it was one body, or what I could come up with, but no dice. Interestingly the Fury clicky does not cause flickering during press on my new Wildcat V6.

Yes, tail and tailcap threads are perfectly clean. This happens even when they are brand new, right out of the bag.

Anyone else experience this?
