    On another note, Z46 Bezel Removal Tool and KT Series Bezel Removal Tools are also released.
    Along with he Copper Plunger Upgrade Kit for the Old-School Z14, Z31 and UM00 Tailcaps.
    It even comes with 2 Silicone replacement tailcap boots in both the "Recessed" and "Raised" styles to replace those 20 years old probably dry rotted and rock hard rubber tailcap boots.
    Never would have guessed that we would make these, am I right? LOL

    Cheers.

    Outstanding interpretation of vintage Surefire into modern world. I can hardly wait to see more pieces coming. I am also impressed by adding tools for very basic repairs.

    The next batch of HA3 Natural items are still at the anodizer.
    So they are not ready and definitely not pictured.
    I’ll post updates here as soon as I got them, so no worries.

    I just received among other things a P60 to E head. That is a really small one for a P60/D26 dropin. Paired with a 18350 body and a switch it is a really great looking and pretty small light. I am waiting for the natural 18350 E bodies to show up and order anothre P60 to E in natural this time. The SW01 and the Pineapples are great as well. I never really liked the Pineapples judging from the pictures but ordered one anyway (6PP) but it is a really good lookig combo with the SW01 switch.

    Mark, thanks for keeping the oldschool Surefire flame burning.

    Well, I was stopped short for a second when I scrolled down and saw those C series bodies. I know they'd be a pain to make compared to a round E body, and don't know how a full-size P60 host might fare nowadays, but who doesn't love a C2-HA?

    Has anyone use this newest protected KeepPower 18350 1400mAh on the e-series 18350 bodies?



    There is measurement saying that its 39mm x 18.55mm.
    But HKJ's review states that it's -- 38.6mm x 18.3mm.

    Oh, that was what you meant. Owen. LOL.
    I love the C2-HA as well, it is in fact the number 1 D26 host in my heart.
    Maybe I have something in the works, maybe I don't, who knows.

    But I do agree that it is a pain in the ass to make compared to round E bodies.
    Anything with that clip slot is a pain to make to be honest, it needs to be really precise.
    That's why you don't see many makers making them.

    Cheers.

    It's not that hard to make really, but market is a concern.
    To make them I need to make a new clip that means a new stamp mold, they are not cheap so that's another concern.
    I know I can definitely sell the clips and screws separately once these heads are made, so users can replace broken or lost clips and screws.
    But again, market.
    To be honest, I would have made them already if not for that clip. Stamping molds cost an arm and leg.


    Could you tell me why you would like us to make these?
    Clipped heads is basically just good for round E Series bodies right?
    I know some aftermarket bodies can use a clipped head, but ain't most aftermarket E bodies have a clip of some sort on the tailcap or the back of the body?
    This is quite interesting actually, so please enlighten me on this.


    Cheers.

    Wink2 Re: Lumens Factory E-series bodies

    Here is a pic of my favourite combo with the P60toE head. REALLY small for a P60dropin light. I know there are even smaller possibilities with CR2 bodies for example (though a CR2 cell with a triple or any modern dropin with a powerfull LED is just a gimmick to me) or with an OR ZeroRes shorty (which makes this light too small for my taste), but this one is just perfect for me. Unfortunatelly this one does not work (yet) due to the fact that the threads (head/bezel side only) on the Fivemega body were not masked during anodising (there always seems to be a problem of some sort with quite a few of his products).



    The Pineapple/SW01 combo is still waiting for a KL5 to be deliverd (UPS performs a warehouse as well as an import scan every single day since april 28th now... ).

    Regarding the clipped head. I do love the looks of the old school E series round body and to have a standard head on it is a bit funny looking to me imo. But also the clip sits closer to the body as it runs down the length of the body with no bends. As it doesn’t stick out as far as the new body mounted clip it feel better in the hand when your using the light.And of course the only way to have a clip on your round bodies is to put the clip on the head.There lite enough to clip on a ball cap. And if you duplicate the old style round head kinda need a clip to keep it from rolling around. I guess I kinda just like the design 😁

    Well, I thought our Clipped tailcap would have solved the problem with clips on round bodies.
    But you do have a solid point on the way the clipped head and round bodied E Series having a really close clip that does not stick out as far.
    I totally understand what you are referring to as I found the clipped head with round bodies awesome to use as EDC with a simple Z52 McClicky which.
    You just can't get more simpler and no frills than that setup.

    I'll look into this a bit deeper and see if it is possible, no promises tho.

    I've been wondering the exact same thing. I was hoping to use these batteries with the new E series single cell body. Let me know if you get a concrete answer.

    Wow Jose, every part of this light is from a different maker yet it all fits in so nice.
    This is the true lego spirit indeed.
