    Default Some PD McGizmo love.

    Picture to follow... So, long story short, I haven't had a piston drive McGizmo light in my posession in a couple of years. Last one was carried and used fairly regularly, spending some time on a shelf as others came and went. The time must have been right recently, because I scooped up a beautiful McLux III PD that had been converted to an XP-G at some point in it's past. Admittedly, I've eschewed single emitter lights for a while, they sit idly by as triples do the lion's share of the work. This thing hasn't left my pocket since it arrived. Light. Intuitive to use, at either end. Small. Bright enough. Beautiful beam. Sips batteries. Tailstands like a champ. Still the best pocketclip in the business. Simple in an age of complicated. I just wanted to share my renewed appreciation for one of the all time classics. Can't believe I went without one for as long as I did.

    Love them. Maybe only two levels but both very useful. Perfect size and "grippiness" and a tailstand that is as secure as just about any light I know. Beautiful mechanical switch action with a nice solid Ti Piston to push as opposed to rubber. The tritium is the icing on the cake. Not showy like some, but just useful as an indicator. The beam was as near perfection as possible with the original luxeons but is also perfect with an XP-G2 that I upgraded mine with.

    And, boy, is this thing solid!! It's shockproof and practically bulletproof. It's both a tool and a work of art at the same time.
    We are all flotsam and jetsam being carried by a relentless tide towards our ultimate fate!

    Best light ever made imo. Still very much relevant on the brightness scale. Love my Ti PD.
