    Default blemishes or silver epoxy? *beam shots included*

    I juz got my LSH-P and there's 2 small parts of the aluminium that silver in colour.





    'silver' seen at 12o'clock and 7o'clock

    what's your opinion? is it the silver epoxy or blemishes from the anodise? if it's the silver epoxy is there anyway to get it off?

    try to scrath if off, if it is epoxy, it will come off, if it is a blemish, it will not magically fill in with anodyze.

    Looks like the rack mark, where the part touches the wire that holds it in the anodizer. No way around that.

    I gotta second GlockDoc, racking for anodizing is a challenge. Masking with internal/hidden commutation has to be figured-in in the design stage and ends up being expensive no matter how you do it.

    um... guess the 2 blemishes are inevitable. the light output performed as expected of a 1W LS.
    will post tonight (it's 1230p.m. now for me) a beam shot comparison with my other LS based lights.
