I haven't found anywhere that sells it...seems to be popular for its small size and SureFire compatibility.

What do you use it for? Where do you buy it?

If you go to the Vital Gear website, there is a short list of who sells them. One of the members on this board sells them (Jciv? or surefireparts on ebay) but I believe he is out of the fb1's at the moment.

I love there stuff. I have two FB-1 bodies i have mounted
two new KL-1 head's to. I found out the hard way the anodizing on the VG was better then SF KL-1's after a knee high fall and soft roll left major chucks outta the KL-1 all the way a round the head, I mean it was gently rolling not like it had been ground into the cement, and still nicked it bigtime! But the VG got a scratched up clip, but no visable marking on the HA-III. The machining is as good or better then SF. (i know there were issues with the first VG bodies, in fact i was leary of ordering them
and took a chance only If i could return is they were below par)

Smaller, and better imho, i have also used a E1e head on one once, and it was just tiny! In fact i would like to get a chop LED mod that he does on the E1e head, because it will be so small and bright.

It's also nice to get a switch and body for th same price as a SF body only (and then pay 30 bucks or more for a SF tail cap)
The switch is different feeling, with a short travel, and a almost silent click. It doesn't feel like a clicky when it goes constant on, but once i used it a few times i don't miss it, and love it now.

good stuff, a bargin, and just a great package. VDG

I have the 1, 2, and 3 cell new Vital Gear bodies - very good.

Best place to get them is from jcciv (John) who is a member here and who also sells on Ebay as "surefireparts". Great guy to deal with !

Thank you!!

I'm thinking of converting a C3 on the way to using a Vital Gear body, E2C and Z58 tailcap with Pilas.

That is a great idea...but unless i am mistaken, i dont think you'll need the Z58 anymore, as vital gear has its own clicky.

Not really familiar with pilas...maybe someone else could answer that. But as for the e2c...if you need one, shoot me a PM. I got one ready to ship.

I have no problem fitting Pila 150s cells in my FB2 bodies. And the xenon lamp lights up nicely on the Pila cells.
