    Not specifically for the E series. Mark has a 3.6- 13V P60 drop in that can be used with the E-C head.

    Ahh ok. Was trying to figure out why you would need or how you would get 13 volts in a e seriesís

    Ha! That would be awesome!!

    If only Surefire had put the E3e and the MN04 lamp assembly prototype into production at 7.2V. I would have loved to have seen that xenon-halogen bulb, I would have stockpiled them!

    I wonder if such a thing as C to E adapter is possible, so that an e-series head could be used with a 6p or similar host? This adapter would eliminate the need for longer e-series bodies such as 2x18500/2xAA and longer. The new p60 head, which is clearly an upgrade to z44, could be used with 6p as well

    Can the new P60 to E Head Units work with Malkoff Dropins?

    Really, really nice. Now I'm drooling.


    The only thing that is stopping me is the postal/shipping right now (currently in slow motion mode).

    This hex "ring", does it have the antiroll function or just decorative?

    The hex ring 'almost' works If the tail cap has a smaller diameter, than the hex ring will touch the table top and it will 'help' from rolling off the table. If the tail cap is flared out too much, the hex ring will never touch the base and the light will roll.

    On the picture above, even with the flared tail cap, the hex ring touched the base and helped from rolling.

    In this case I would say that I would like to see a "hexless" version one day. IMHO, the smooth head would fit 2-way clip design better and just look and feel cleaner.

    Having said this, I think that this version is a huge step up from the adapter/z44 thing and I am going to get one as soon as mail gets back to normal

    Has anyone tried mounting malkoff e-series tri-cap to LF 3pp body, wondering how cap thread length mates-up to body?

    Any news on 6pp body releases?

    The hex ring works if you have the normal Z52 or Z57/Z61 tailcaps.
    It doesn't work that well when paired with Z68 or other flared tailcaps like the one Euroken is using.

    We just released this new P60 to X head unit today.
    Well, not exactly an E Series part but I guess some of you would be interested.


    Follows the original Surefire design for that stock look.
    Comes with your choice of Stainless Steel Bezel Ring and UCL tempered glass lens.
    Bezel ring use the Z44 threads, so you can change them if you like.


    Cheers.

    One of my issues about the design of the previous/older E2C and U2C was the absence of notch / knurling / etc that makes 'tool-less' disassembly near impossible. Most often, I had to use old rubber or leather to provide added traction. Plus having weak hands sometimes need a fixed vise to un-tightening the bezel and the adapter. I usually end up with some smudge or scratched bezels.

    Hopefully -- I presume that LM's new P2E heads are much easier to disassemble as there is only a single 'end' rubber gasket.

    Sunday candy teaser. Prototype fresh from LF.
    Keep you guys update shortly

    Disclaimer- I am a normal customer ( satisfied customer) of LF over a period of time, I sent email to Mark and wanna to purchase 6P/3P pineapple bodies recently and then we started a bit of discussion about my opinions on E body. And Mark is very kind and sent me the prototype for some torture test.

    The prototype that I got are raw and without clips. The body looks very similar to SF tear drop E2 body. IMO, the knuckling on LF could be more aggressive, from 3rd pc you can see the knuckling on SF E2 body are more pronounce. The machining on the prototype are standard high quality LF style with nothing to criticize.
    I have some questions to Mark,
    1. Are you planning to make E head with clip?
    I like this round body and of course want E body with clip.
    2. Are you gonna to produce 2 different 18650 E bodies?
    3. Any chance to have the knuckling more aggressive ? Perhaps I so used to hold and handle the pineapple bodies recently 😌

    1. Not really, but I understand there might be some demand since most of the aftermarket E bodies do not have clips, so a head unit with a clip like the old school E2 teardrop heads would be a welcome addition to them.
    I'll give it some thought, the problem lies with making the clip in small quantities is next to impossible and these "clipped" heads are very niche. So I will end up with 1000 clips and 200 heads.... 200 if I am lucky. LOL
    2. Really depends if the threads hold up or not, to be honest. Could be "Zero" if they can't stand hard use.
    3. Most definitely, production versions will have more aggressive knucklings like the original Surefire E bodies. These are just prototypes. (I know the knucklings are too "tame" the moment I finished them too. )

    Cheers.

    I know from experience that an e1e body bored for 18350 can survive a year of everyday pocket carry without any problem. I expected that either the threading would be compromised by frequent cell replacement or the clip would deform its attachment point, but nothing of that has happened.

    So I dont see why a clone, originally made, for xx350 should fail

    Head compatibility, I tested the bodies with all the heads I've, like E1b MV, E2 Tatician, E2 defender 500 lumen, Haiku, sf tear drop with incand, SF hex head with kuku dropping and some led dropin, SF KL4 etc. The only issue was with VME head mated with M61 dropin. I tried it on flat top cell and also 2 different button cells still with no luck. I am not sure what happened.


    Mark, once again thank you for your E bodies. And my latest setup is LF head, body and tail 18650 ultimate EDC for my like. I am looking forward for your final production.
