    Can you post some close up picture of the Aleph tailcaps with oveready clips? I did a similar thing with a Arisaka tailcap.

    Nice lineup. Does the Aleph 19 also have a TripLED?.

    Yes, these are RPM tailcaps: 5x natural, 1x black and 1x Ti (heat anodized to a pretty good match to Surefire´s HA....for Ti at least).

    The A19s are the only empty heads. The will end up with a Tana Aleph light engine later this year.

    Hey SF E-Series Addicts, guys... what is a good alternative pocket clip for the E2D/E1D? I find the factory clip not so up to the job when clipped on thicker fabric like jeans.

    Default Re: SureFire E-Series Addicts Unite!

    My first one arrived today.

    EB1c. Probably not my last "E"




    Not bad at all.

    Now I understand why you guys dig these so much.




    Holy crap! You gotta be kidding me!!
    That's only 200 lumens?

    Hello fellow E series addicts.
    I came here for a vent basically. I just refrained from posting a rant in a sales thread.
    The story is that I keep seeing sales threads for E series mods, the incan head type, and every time I cringe at the unsealed heads that don't seat all the way down and bodies bored in a scary fashion that look like they'd break in half with a stiff breeze. Every time I see these sales posts it's the same thing, like driving past a car accident. Can't help but think this guy just keeps destroying discontinued great lights.
    Such a shame when there's guys out there, one in particular doing such great work with SF mods.
    End rant.

    This also bothers me... Sometime I see them and like the specs but I just can't see it being useful to me if I can't use it outdoors.

    F89, would you be more specific regarding your problems with E series lights? Which ones gave you a problem? Not trolling here?

    Hi Bill,

    I love SF, particularly E series. My problem was with certain sales threads of modded lights that to me are a destroyed light.
    I'm all for a well modded light but as I noted in my post above the mods in question aren't good. I think mk2rocco knows which posts I'm talking about?
    Anyway, didn't want to name and shame and on that note I'll name and fame instead, Tana is an excellent modder of SF who creates a product of high quality, durability, functionality and in the end really does justice to the transformed SF.
    To answer your question Bill, none of the offending modded lights gave me a problem personally as I wouldn't touch one with a 40 foot clown pole.

    Yes, there are some in the Customs and modified section. Tana do do amazing work, I have 2 Oveready E-series triples that are also outstanding.

    I've never seen this picture. The E-Series Turbo head is very very nice but the E3e is too long to my taste. Who made this prototype? Surefire? It is pity it never came into production.

    An old E-type Rothandir 18650 body with Surefire head and tail, and Tad's or fivemega Bi-pin holder and incan bulb, more than enough for use outdoors a dark evening:

    I've got one of these too, currently with 2x18350 and a TL-3 bulb. With this setup, the brass contact plug was protruding too far to let the bezel screw all the way down, so I temporarily replaced it with a micro-wad of aluminum foil, which has enough 'give' to let me close the bezel gap. The grooves were just a little too 'slippery' for my taste, so I wrapped some skateboard tape around the body, which means that you want to think about which pockets you want to try to pocket carry this light with.

    I have a black lumens factory tail cap for my e1d and it works and looks great. You can get them in twisty or clicky but they look more like z41 instead of z61

    Yes, the C2 was my long-time favourite.... until I gave one of your Triples a shot. After that it was all about the e-series..... Nowadways 18650/2x123 sized e-series lights with LuciDrv are my favourites.

    Man I'm with you! How about the people destroying classic A2's by stuffing triples and whatnot in there? Honestly, an A2!?!? Why take out literally everything that makes an A2 such a great, iconic SureFire, to make it a triple LED baaah . I can't even look at them. Honestly I'd rather see an E-Series head destroyed, at least it's just the head. Unless of course they decide to bore the darn thing paper thin.....

    Anyway with that rant over I shall now contribute to this thread. My newest build/lego:



    Started out as a bare E2L-AA body picked up on here. Acquired a new long clip, tailcap, LF E-to-C adapter, SolarForce Head and just picked up an M31 that's in the mail to complete the build.

    Unfortunately with the bezel up clip design and the bigger 6p sized head I don't see it being very pocket friendly. But, for some reason I've had it in my head to build this exact light for some time now (and spent well over a year slowly acquiring parts on the cheap). Should make an excellent emergency light running on both eneloops and when those run dry, alakaleaks if needed. Also tail stand-able is huge for emergency situations
