Thread: **SPF - MINTY LUNASOL 20

    Wink2 **SPF - MINTY LUNASOL 20

    ***SPF****

    It's time - the collection needs selective thinning and this 'minty' LS20 needs a new home. I purchased it back in December from another member - it is 99% mint and is from the latest run that accepts RCRs. After I got it and played with it a day or two, it went into the safe. This specimen deserves to be used, although it is ready to go into someone's 'safe queen selection' if they so desire!

    Asking $575 Shipped CONUS only (at least for now.) I will eat the Paypal fees - insurance (recommended) is an additional $8.

    Being somewhat OCD in how my lights are cared for, I thought I would share a short photo essay of what you'll be getting, including a quick but thorough tune up I did this morning:













    Here she is - ready to go - hope you enjoy the photos!




    (Photo below taken pre-cleaning)

    I confess that in the process of preparing this little 'photo essay' I almost changed my mind about selling it, but for now I'm going through with it.

    ITEM IS SOLD AND PAID FOR - THANKS PAUL! AND THANK YOU CPF!

    Thank you!

    Nope - no mistake. I'm sure - it's a great light and I enjoyed having it for a while, but it's time for it to go to a new home.

    BUT, my LS27 isn't going anywhere!!

    I should sell mine as well - and buy this baby!

    Mine is from an earlier run and can't take RCRs, but it was (and still is nearly) mint as well.

    I wish I had the money to take this off your hands right now. It's just what I want... :/ Beautiful light for whoever ends up with it.
    EDC E1B, Tigerlight w/LED dropin for when I need more light. Love my new Zebralight H30 for floody tasks and my Quark Mini123 for being awesomely small and bright.

    WOW... I remember how excited you were when you got that one! I just sold my fifth one and keep going back. Funny....I just bought my old mule that I sold you back again! This is a crazy addiction! I had DatiLed build me a super powered light engine since Dark Zero was taking a break. I'll probably list the GDup that was in it. BUMP for a GREAT buyer and seller who truly represents the spirit of what CPF is all about! Great job on your overhaul of the Lunasol 20. I blew too much on knives this week or I'd jump on it! See Ya!

    I see you bought the Thorp tool that Don (McGizmo man himself) uses on the clip screws that was recommended by AWTYD too! I got one too and clip removal is a breeze with no stripping or damage to the heads . I rushed out and got mine on ebay just like Troy told us to do! That fact alone shows the great lengths you have gone to to maintain perfection!

    Wow....thanks, Karl! Just fyi, I think I'm going to have datiLED put an XP-G in my PD-S - making it a PD-XPG?

    Yes, I was very excited when I got this one - but kinda went crazy in the past two months with my acquisitions...so a minor 'adjustment' is necessary..

    You are right - these great lights do tend to circulate, but that's half the fun. I belong to a number of forums and they are all good, but this forum has, IMHO, the best group of folks out there - everyone treats everyone with such respect and understands the true enjoyment of this 'hobby!'

    Thanks for the bump and the kind words!

    Thanks for both, Karl! Yep, the circle seems to remain unbroken - every once and a while a new 'section' is added to the circle - Dimerazorback, me, many others - but it's cool how this community works!!

    Thanks for speaking to Derek for me. I'm sure he'll do a great job!

    Wow. You really gave that thing the white-glove treatment. The best my Gizmos get is soap and a toothbrush. If I didn't already have an LS20, I'd have been sorely tempted to jump on this one.

    I know its a bit late for a proper bump but here ya go. Plus 1 for a great CPFer both as a buyer and seller. He himself fulfills the statement made about contributing to the overall positive respectful vibe on this forum. Also responsible for cementing and cultivating my curiousity in the world of high-end illumination.

    Yeah, that's funny, you're right, unfortuntaly those who think it's funniest are Paypal and postal services...

    While it is allright for the postal services, normally they work for it and don't loose our lights, it's a shame for Paypal! You should think about a sort of club, where lights are exchanged on a regular basis without money transfers. A sort of passaround, each member throws in the lights he wants and gets as many from other members with the final hypothetical goal to get the owned lights back or exchange for good!
    Great deal here, I just got an S27 Cx2 meanwhile and wonder how long it'll take until I join the sellers' side as well...
