    Yeah it is excellent reference material. And it needs to be updated! So here is a missing image needing to be added.

    I didn't realize I had two versions of Z59s in my possession.

    I think so, but I don't know that there has been a definitive answer.

    There was another thread about it, and I finally found it HERE.

    I came across this picture of the Z31 tailcap on the web (not my photo), and thought I would add it to this thread.

    ...and here is another picture of the Z21 tailcap, taken from another angle. Again, not my picture, but I hope it is okay to do this for educational purposes.

    Hello forum:
    I have a Surefire 9N from long ago and my kids took it apart.....yep they lost a switch part. The light has a push button end but mine doesn't push now, It's solid. I got the manual from Surefire and the I have all the parts listed except the switch part. I have the end of the switch that contacts with the thumb and the spring that surrounds it, but in the manuals image the switch appears to have a male part on the bottom as well, protruding toward the battery. Mine does not. That end of the switch is concave, and it looks like it needs another part, a spring or something, but I don't know what.

    I am hoping someone knows about this switch and can tell me where to find a replacement. Surefire no longer carries any parts for this light so now I'm stuck!!! Any help is much appreciated!

    I just remembered that SF came out with a new switch recently and have been meaning to post it here to keep the thread alive. It's a smaller version of the XM00 switch but for the Scout lights. Just the switch is known as the DS00 but with the pressure pad (kit) it goes by the same XM designation I.E. DS07= switch+ 7 inch length cord. Was going to post the SF picture but not sure how they might take this sort of action? However I'm sure sooner or later one of us will end up with one so no one will get bent out of shape for some CR infringement.

    Did the EDCL series use the L2 tailcap or is it a new model number?
    I read the L2 body and tailcap will fire the EDCL engine correctly but had not read if it legos onto said EDCL light(s).

    Just saw it, L2 is way bigger tailcap where EDCL is long threads E size. They will fire up each others engine but only if you could make them fit

    Looks like a very old vintage "SFLP"-era piece (with what appears to be a period-correct switch boot)

    I don't know the exact year that SureFire changed the lettering, but some searching of CPF could probably narrow down the range considerably

    It was back in the era of the "smooth round" bezels, before the "hex-type" (anti-roll) bezels.

    Well, congrats. You did it, got me curious, so I'll link up the relevant threads for you below

    https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb...ge-Surefire-6P

    https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb...ilcap-Question

    Based on those two threads (and some other miscellaneous posts) , I would estimate date of manufacture between ~ 1988 and 1994, most likely around 1990 if I had to pick a year.

    The smooth (non-checkered) button makes it earlier in the range. The lack of model number also probably suggests an earlier vintage.

    Low power dropin is a good idea, since the lens is plastic (polycarbonate Lexan)
