Hello, what I'm looking for is an adapter that can be screwed into the head of a surefire vampire head that in turn, allows the head to be screwed onto the Surefire M600DF body while maintaining contact between the battery and head. I run the DF weaponlight on my rifle 80% of the time. But too often the need for the vampire IR function is needed and I dont have time to unmount the DF body and remount the Vampire body as it requires me to disassemble the rifle to remove the mount.

Basically I just need to be able to swap heads quickly. But the DF 18650 body is too large to accept the smaller vampire head.

Is this something that is possible to machine?

Not with an 18650, but I have used the head with a 16650.
I just would like a way to get it on the larger DF body.

I would like to help you out.

Since I don't have that light on hand, I would need the light and 2nd head to be sure it fits properly. Would you be able to do without them for a period of time?

An example of my work.

I'm very interested to see where this wound up. I have several Vampires, and I would very much like to use them on Dual Fuel bodies.

Most of my stuff is now on 18650 cells, so this would just simplify the battery loadout.

it could work, but I don't "think" it would be ideal. what is the voltage range of the 1 and 2 cell vampire heads? pretty sure the 4.2VDC of a fresh LI-ion wouldn't work with the 3v head and the 6v head might not work well at the 2V li-ion low end voltage.

that said I do run my 2cell vampire on a 16650 although I havent tested it that long to see how long it last.

Did you ever get the adapter? I'm interested in having an adapter to fit a Vampire head on a DF 18350 body.
