    LOL.

    I'm sure that would have worked out better. :-)

    Here's a photo in better focus.

    There are a few dupes here, but most of the ones that look like dupes (like the Maratacs and Thrunites in the upper right) are actually different revisions. The two Mako's (2nd row, 3rd and 4th from the right), look identical in the photo, but one is the original wide optic and the other is the later narrow optic. The three Tain Ottavino's in the 2nd row are Rev's 1, 2, and 3. The two McGizmo Sapphires to the right of the Ottavinos in the 2nd row are the original and the later Sapphire 25.

    (I also posted this over on the Titanium thread).

    These just arrived, the new Maratac 2xAAA Ti penlight with rear clicky switch from CountyComm. Two are for me, and the other will be a present to a friend who’s recently gotten into flashlights to help bootstrap his collection. (Two are still in the plastic shrink wrap which is why they look a little blurry in the photo).


    I really like the details of the external design and machining on the light, the way they did the cutouts, the fine knurling, not to mention the over 300 lumens on high.

    Wow, especially considering the time frame. But now you have to find at least one more to make 60. :-)

    I have a half a dozen recent arrivals so I think I’m over 70, possibly over 80. Not sure, but I’ll do an accounting soon and get a more accurate number.

    I really like the new 2xAAA Maratac titanium tactical penlight, so I ordered a few more.

    http://imgbox.com/W8rdMTdK

    The website says there were only 500 made, so I have just over 1% of them. :-)

    I only have a few AAA lights and this old school classic specimen is my favorite.
    ARC AAA with a cyan emitter. Was never really into the AAA's since I am a junkie for a good pocket rocket and the AAA's just can't deliver the punch that I like but no question that is a favorable form factor due to plentiful cells. So you gotta have some in your arsenal!
    This was one of the first "custom" that I bought back in 2004 (IIRC!).
    Shortly after that I bought an ARC LS, found this wonderful forum and it was all down hill from there!!!
    Still love the cyan. Luxeon made a LUX III emitter in cyan that had just the best color and my first mod was using that emitter on a light engine that I built for my LS.

    Beautiful color.

    IIRC, I have an Aleph LE with a Luxeon cyan LED, in a TranquillityBase host ....

    From PK himself, takes great pride in my collection. Admittedly babied as it has great sentimental value to me, but does get used around(and inside) the house. I just cant let it get beat up with keys...... just the thought makes me all .

    Beautiful color on that one.

    Speaking of rare emitters, I have the rare ARC brass UV AAA:

    Also shown are ARC black, gray, and camo models, as well as an AA and the rare Bombelman CR2.

    Very nicely organized presentation. Luv the diverse collection, especially the oldie goldies.

    What’s the story on the fake Thrunite TiS? How did you figure out it was fake?

    In a similar vein, this is supposed to be a copy of the ARC brass UV prototype (bottom photo):

    The top photo shows a few of my ARC AAA’s, and an ARC AA and a Bombelman body CR2.
