Do you own a bottle opener because you're too weak to twist off caps :grin2:
haha...that staple puller isn't mine.

The Malkern 'pin is in the works.

I ordered a P60 copper shell, 17mm Dr.Jones H17Fx Driver, (4) 351D 4000K LEDs, frosty floody quad lens.
I'll pot it so that @thermal guy approves.

I went with the Samsung LH351D because they have a nice floody beam.
I know it's not the gold standard of tint, but the beam profile will be nice.

The Malkoff High-Low ring will fit this copper shell giving a sub lumen low-mode

I feel like it would get out of hand if I were capable of building my own drop ins. I'm having a hard enough time stopping myself from piecing together legos while I've been waiting for an amber rotary. Why'd you all have to let me know all these options? You know.....I was perfectly fine with what I had until I started signing back in on here. On a more positive note, I finally snagged a z41 twisty after who knows how many times of being a few minutes too late.

Ha, there's only so far you can take it b\c you can't replicate the Malkoff dropin.
His reflectors and shells are special and priced very low for the quality you get.
We are limited to using reflectors and shells that are 1/2 the weight, or must stick to triples/quads/mules.

I say buy Malkoff when you can, tinker with something else when you want.

I have a "pin" with this LEd and it's pretty sweet, I really like the tint and it is pretty floody.

I present to you, my truck MD2 M61HOT. Bought this soldier second hand for $95. Works like new.

E1HT with a fresh battery station CR123 😂

2,000 yards...just enough usable spill.
2,000 yards...you can do better than that. 😆 I roll hard, 1.5 miles. 1,760 is a mile, but you know that from your gravity scales for precision loading. The gravity here is 63.769932 😆

Anybody ever use these? It's a non rechargable 3.6v 14500(AA). They are made in France. I just received 150 of them and so far they seem extremely high quality.

I'm curious how they perform
Their datasheet lists them at 50mA max recommended continuous current.
Going off the Malkoff website...I don't have my measuring tools out... 20 lumens from the 16650 MDC Neutral is 83mA.

But might as well use 'em like you stole 'em

I've been running my 61 hot off it all day. So far no problems.
