If it's KD you can check your status by opening your account. It's very easy. All you need is your email and a password. It shows all your orders and gives you a tracking number.
DX does the same as above but most of the time they will send you a tracking number.
i ordered 2
yesterday it said processing but still not shipped
the item itself has the status"backordered"
could it be the case that they shipped al incoming lights and that mine is still on backorder?
@friends of C3 SS,
Tastes differ, so to me, the gap is good.
It means that the end of the body tube is bottoming out on the PCB (or tail switch) contact ring before the shoulder of the body hits the end of the head/tail cap, i.e. that a solid electrical contact has been established.
Since this light does not have non-conducting HA-II coating, the body tube does not need to touch either PCB or the switch assembly. The negative current path is provided through the threads. You can loosen threads on both ends until they are almost ready to fall out but the light will still stay on as long as battery is making contact with fronth PCB and the rear spring.
that's why if you can tighten the pill or better, replace it with Rex 2.0 pill but keep the stock reflector, you can remove the gap at the head.
By the way, I managed to get the glow-ring in. Here is the order
It looks great but I am little afraid that the glow ring might pop out but it has not yet. I am worried that if it popos out, it might take the stock ultra-thin ring with it and I will never find it again.
When I had tried to put the glow ring between the glass and the reflector, it got squished badly.
I also used Mother's Al+Mag cleaner/polisher and made it little more bling-bling.
Mine is exactly as you describe.The one I just received from KD doesn't have an O-ring at the lens either. The washer which screws into the tail cap isn't gold coloured but silver, and has a bit of a rough finish. The edges on the tail cap and body could do with a smooth. The two holes on tail cap (for lanyard, clip etc) are rough on the inside. Also, the O-rings on the body are black, not orange.
At least they're issues simple to remedy
Everything else good!
