    Default Ti 2x123 McClickie Pak Wave(s)

    Hi guys,

    As what I consider to be an obvious extension of the single CR123 paks, HERE, I also had some 2x123 paks machined and this had been mentioned in other threads. Well I have ~ 100 of these on order and received the first lot a couple days ago. By next weekend, I should have the balance of them on hand and assembled as well.


    The titanium 2x123 McClickie pak:




    This pak is essentially a titanium 2x123 Aleph or E series compatable pak. It has the same ribbed profile that i used in some 2x123 clickie paks for the "x2" based converter heads. The tail is identical to the single cell McClickie paks and it uses the same Ti belt clip. The previous 2x123 Ti paks used a longer clip.

    As a rule, I don't offer Ti components separately but there is so much in the population that is based on the E-series architecture that I feel these paks do make sense on a stand alone offering and besides, I really wanted a few for myself!

    Beyond all of the custom heads and limited production heads here on CPF, there is also the new SureFire KX2 head which can be bought separately and hosted on one of these. (pictured below)



    On an appearance level, I think the ribs may be too "busy" for appeal to many. However, I just really like how the pak fits in my hand and from a functional grip standpoint, I elected to stick with this design.


    The wave offering:

    I am offering these Ti McClickie Paks for $230 plus shipping cost. Shipping will be via priority mail or international priority mail unless you request otherwise. For domestic priority mail, you can request insurance if you like and instead of the included delivery confirmation, you can request signature confirmation for an added $1.75 but you will need to be there to sign. I don't offer insurance on international shipping for a number of reasons.

    For general information on how the orders are processed and such, please review This Thread.

    If you want one or more of these, please send me an e-mail with
    Ti 2x123 McC Pak

    in the subject line as well as the quantity if more than one.

    In the body of the e-mail request, please include:
    CPF name
    Real Name and mailing address & phone #

    Any alternate shipping requests and/or request for insurance

    I will respond with a confirmation of order received or a postage notification e-mail or both depending on how quickly I get to the requests and can process them. In the subject line of the postage notification I will include the total and please feel free to submit this amount via PayPal or other means at your earliest convenience.

    These will be available on a first order received, first processed basis. In terms of quantity in this wave, at present, I have 18 of these completed and ready to ship now. The balance will be available to ship late this week. I have no idea how well these will be received or whether I will receive requests for some prior to having them completed. I guess the thing to do is play it by ear and I will update the status here. Unless you specify otherwise, I will assume that a request for one of these is legit whether you catch one of the already assembled ones or have to wait until later in the week.

    Thanks guys!

    As an aside, I wanted to build myself an extended play SunDrop and I used a SOB 333mA converter. I didn't want this light to get mixed up with other stuff on hand so I bead blasted it as a "set". This might illustrate what can be done by the user but not to be confused with the offer in this wave:

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Isak,
    Actually I am considering the possibility of maybe making a few of these (not bead blasted). I want to do a status update on the SunDrop program and where some options exist, lay it out for you folks and get an idea of what you would like to see.

    Hi guys,

    I had a couple difficult e-mails to respond to last night and they wore me out to the point I didn't respond to a number of others as I had intended. I am going to fortify myself with some breakfast and then get to these orders and respond to the requests. Sorry for the delay. I should be able to get all that I have on hand and ready to ship to the post office in time for today's flight off the island. For those of you who will have to wait a few days, I will let you know your status.

    I mentioned in the SunDrop update thread that it seems best that I offer a SunDrop XP simultaneously with these 2x123 McClickie paks. The SunDrop XP is a complete light using a SOB converter and one of these 2x123 paks so any SunDrop XP that gets built takes a pak from this wave.

    If any of you who have already sent in a request for a 2x123 McClickie pak ($230) would prefer to get a SunDrop XP ($460) then please send a follow up e-mail to me. For those wishing this who have already had the McClickie pak shipped, let me know and I can provide the head separately for an additional $230. This is not to say I am offering the SunDrop XP head separately to the general population because that is not my intent.

    I will start a SunDrop XP thread later after I get caught up on what has already been requested. Thanks and sorry for the late changes and confusion!

    I think when I finally processed your request I failed to respond to your query. Sorry but please consider the answer as no; an answer I take no pleasure in giving yet feel compelled to.

    Guys, here's the deal. I have now packed up all of the paks I have that are assembled. I need to get them down to the post office. I have some SunDrop XP heads I need to build and I expect the balance of the 2x123paks today. I would really prefer to build and assemble and minimize e-mail responses and the time required in administrating and moving e-mail requests which have been answered into a temporary folder. It is much quicker and less prone to mistakes if I leave your requests in my inbox until I perform the actual request and pack your request and send off notification of postage.

    We haven't run out of any of these items at this point so you all shoulld be good to go. If you can bear with me for a day or two and let me try to get ahead of this, I can get the stuff build and shipped a lot faster. Will that work for you all?
