    Anyone have a white LED ring they want to part with? Bonus if it's one of the aftermarket options.

    Have any A2 aficionados ever replaced their stock, crenalated bezel ring? Is it thread locked? Easy to do? What tools did you use? Thanks.

    I did open all of my A2’s bezel and replaced almost all of them with altermann’s custom brass bezel.
    I’ve used hot air gun or even hair dryer to soften the glue a bit. Placed a piece of leather around bezel and with small adjustable pliers gently squeeze and turn.
    I think only on 1 i didn’t use anything but my bare hands.

    Thanks! I was hoping for some good news like this. Can you share more details about the altermann's brass bezel? Maybe a pic? I saw a replacement Ti bezel on eBay; I'd like to get something that's smooth and bare metal.

    $60 to a CPF er and got a spare 4 flats with red leds. The lens has a small crack but it's usable and a bargain for a whole light/ spare parts. One little "pliers" scrape on the body. I may swap heads and start using this one since I don't care if it gets scraped up a bit.

    These are still cool lights!

    Yes they are still cool lights.

    I carried my green LED one the other evening and got a kick out how it changes how stuff appears.

    I carry one of mine with Tad's "hot rod" bulb (3718?) on occasion for dog walking, it goes through cells a bit quicker than a stock bulb. Gets warm, too!

    I don't think I've ever used a green A2. Maybe once long ago. How did it change things? I know the eye is most sensitive to green light.

    Awesome! I have two Tad drop ins for my A2s. They run a 3718 and a 4812, on 16340s. Yes, the 3718 gets toasty, so does the 4812 after a while .

    One of these days, I'll land a Blue LED one to complete the collection.
