    Default Surefire Oveready modded 6P/ 9P/ C2 Glass lens replacement

    Hello CPF!

    I have a few Oveready modded Surefires, namely a bored C2 and a bored 9P that both came with frosted lenses. I bought clear lenses from Vinh, but they seem far too thin to fit in place of the frosted lens.

    SO, in looking for a replacement, the only source I can find on line is VIA Lumensfactory from China. I'm not against this route, but it seems crazy to me that it's the only option. Ebay has a few listings for some 2.9mm thick glass, where LumensFactory states theirs is 3.4mm, which is what I feel like is the "right" glass for my host given the thinner option was evidently, too thin. Also it seems O-rings are rather hard to find, unless they come with the lenses.... any advice?


    SO CPF where should I get my replacement glass for my newer model surefires? How thick should it be? Is there something I am missing about replacement of OR-modded Surefires? OR themselves are OOS for those lenses.

    Thanks in advance!

    Flashlightlens.com is another good source, but they're closed until the 13th of September...

    The last few times I checked it seemed like the were closing out their lenses, since there were a lot of the popular ones that were 'not in stock'. I wanted spare lenses for my G2 and 6P. I got the 6P lens from Lumens Factory, and the G2 from EDCPlus.

    Thanks for the heads up, I haven't ordered from them recently. They had been a long time go-to in the past. Hope they stay around...

    Visually, they both appear to be high quality. Since I have no means of actually testing the lenses, that's about all I can say. It's really not an issue, because each one only sells the one type of lens, so there can be no face-to-face comparison.
