Hi guys,

Sometimes I'm a little dense so need it clarified. I have a Mac Tri EDC in Al. This ring wont fit?
If it will I'm down for one. In whatever finish :)

As I understood it, the concerns you mentioned only apply to the Titanium and Damascus Mac's. The ring should fit into the Aluminum and other metals.

I think I did find one aluminum that wouldn't fit, and the alumibronze wouldn't take either. I have a new small batch on order that will match the size of the McClicky so will work in everything. I only have 3 left of the first batch.

As I understand the first batch wont be exact?

Re: Titanium Boot Retaining Rings to fit Mac & Sigma EDC lights and Hanko Trident

Right, the first batch were made to standard thread specs. So if your light's maker used a tap to do the threading (Sigma) should fit fine. The ones cut with standard lathe tooling (cnc or manual) are suspect due to material properties when being cut. The undersized McClicky estimate still fit, and the stock rings were cut to match the McClicky threads. Batch 2 will match the McClicky threads, and will be a limited number. Have only ordered 25.
