    Default SureFire E-Series Addicts Unite!

    KDOG3 started a very nice Surefire C2-HA thread, and I thought I'd follow up with an E* thread.

    I bought an E1E HA Olive and even with the standard incan MN01 lamp, I love the thing. The other day, I just bought an E1E HA BK, and an E2E in Satin Gray, and I'm ordering some Lumens Factory HO lamps. Then it'll be on to some rechargeable cells, and the E0 series lamps.

    I believe I am an E-series addict, and I'm just getting started.

    So for all you lovers of the E-series lights, let's see what you've got!

    E series addict? I'm slowly getting there.

    So far I've got a E2DL, KX2 head & L4 (SSC P4)

    Hey, cool thread. Count me in as an E series fan!

    Here's a picture I recently took and posted over on the "Post Your Surefire Collection" thread. I called it my "One's and Two's" collection. The majority of my Surefire collection is of the E series size.

    | L1 | E2L | E1B Z68 | E2DL | E2E-BK KX2C Z68 | L4 | A2 flats | E2E | E1E-BK KL1 Z68 | E1L |
    | Winelights E1W & E2W | Hurricane Light | 6PDL Z49 | K2 | U2 | 6PX-B-FRD |

    Really like that E1E Winelight and that tricked-out E1E HA Bk w/the KL1 head: the E1E goes "tacticool."

    Good luck, that thread is one of the best SF threads ever, with 360 posts and ~17500 views.
    Here's my EDC, a humble little retro E1 (my only E-series):

    I had some...but gave them away as gifts
    a Black body to Sigman and an unopened E1e-HA to Carrot
    Other than maybe TW4 I'm somewhat underwhelmed about the E1 form factor.

    I prefer the E2e
    this was back in 2008


    now theres
    1 TW4 [E1e-KL4]
    1x E2e-BK waiting to be sold
    2x E2Ls
    1x E2D+[KL4-BK with MC-E]

    What type of tailcap are the HA ones with the thumb-screw? Anyone ever seen a plain HA Z68?

    Thanks. I looked at The Sandwich Shop and searched Google; any idea where I can get one other than B/S/T? I'm wanting to make my olive drab KL4 a TW4 with a SF tube and tailstanding switch; ideally a Z68, if only it came in OD. This Aleph Standard is the closest looking thing I have seen.

    I started W/SF 6p got E1L which I love and carry every day, but had have a C3 which now sits unused like the 6P since I bought an E1e after reading CPF post's and enjoying the E1L.

    P.S I'm sick and the only cure is an E1L W/ A Hand stamping E2d bezel for anyone trying to steal one of my flashlights.

    Dare I ask what that lot is worth or the answer too frightening to contemplate?

    I only have 3 - an E1e with a Fivemega bi-pin LA, E2e OD bored out for 17670 and running various LF lamps, and an E2E BK totally stock which I received only two days ago, and it looks gorgeous! The battery tube is a lot narrower inside than the OD version so it'll take more work to bore out for 17670 but when it's done I'll have the option of a Nitecore Extreme head for work. Already stuck the head on for curiosity and it's lovely.

    Fell in love with my TW4...again...sigh...now I have a E-series twisty (man these things are hard to get), so it's like getting ten new lights as I rotate it through my E-series to see which one it's suits the best...

    The TW4 is awesome being that it uses the KL4, but without the heat and only a slight decrease in output...but too bad you can't find the old KL4 anymore

    No problem, thanks! I'm thinking of just getting one anyway and try my luck on an E1B body I have. Thanks for the pics, by the way, I've always wondered what the e-series extender looked like in actual use!

    Either JS Burley or OpticsPlanet used to sell (hopefully still does) delrin shrouds that were similar to the L/A-series shrouds that OregonShooter (am I remembering his screen name correctly?) used to make. I have quite a few of them and they work very nicely.
