Thread: WTB: Surefire EB1 Backup Shrouded Tailcap

    Default WTB: Surefire EB1 Backup Shrouded Tailcap

    Iím looking for a Shrouded click-type Tailcap for a Surefire EB1 Backup. It needs to be black, come from a smoke free environment, and be in new or like new condition. From the research Iíve done on CPF it cannot be from an E1B due to differences in thread length. Thank you.

    I was considering that as an option. I tried removing the aluminum retainer but I think thread locker or glue was used to secure it so I may have to heat it up first. Thanks for your reply.

    He sells a metal key on there as well that really helps, others had said theyíve heated their Up because it was thread locked. Mine was not however, that key made it cake to take off. Just an option, cost another few bucks though. Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice. I was hoping I wouldnít have to heat the tailcap but Iím probably making it out to be worse than it really is.
