    Also these look so nice - could you make some for the A2 as well?
    Also any brass for the Z57 or A2 in the "pipeline"?
    I do have just one brass 'prototype' for the Z-57. Since you are sooo interested in brass, I'll throw it in with the Delrin piece Hope that will count as 2 for you. Though I am aware that others are also interested in brass, I do not have time to make more of them, sorry.
    No plans for the A2.

    jtice,
    Didn't mean to leave you out, just thought you were 'capable' Let me know if you need any measurements or a short length of black Delrin.

    Vifam, sorry there are no more. I'm waiting for some people here to reply. We'll see if there are any left after the 36 hours.

    I'd like to be next in line as well. I am looking for just one if possible. I "assume" you'll say the same 36hrs deal....
    Thanks in advance for consideration.

    Tylerdurden, torchwolf, Geologist, Paypal received thanks!, will ship out in the morning.

    I have not heard back from some others and though I will have to wait another 15 hours, may be able to fill requests from some (not all) of you on the waiting list. Thanks for your patience.

    The 36 hours have past and I have 2 left
    jtice, belyo PM sent.

    I have received several more requests via PM and find that there is a significant demand for this item.

    The requests have overwhelmed my limited hobbyist capacity, but would any of you be interested if I were to ask a machine shop to CNC them from Aluminum and HAIIIed?

    nekomane,

    I bet if you did U2 and A2 rings as well, the demand would be much greater.

    I'm still waiting on the brass, myself

    Nekomane,

    If we could have black anodized tailcap guard for A2, U2 or C-series clickie(if someone could confirm they are the same?), I'd be in for at least 2. If the black anodization is not possible, black delrin is perfectly fine too.

    Anb thank you for doing this!

    I'd be in for a couple, maybe more. Any idea if they fit L1s? Delrin is fine for me. I missed McGizmo's version of this and I've been kicking myself for it. This should give me some relief from the boot marks.

    ths11, Auroralite, I don't have any of the lights you mentioned. Can someone confirm if these lights use the same tailcap?

    Lunal_Tic, the L1 has a different tailcap IIRC. This mod is for the 'clicky' Z-57.
    Would Delrin be better? Though I have this thing for HAIIIed aluminum, the cost may be difficult to justify for such a simple piece and Delrin could be better.

    Still interested L1 or not. Delrin is fine. HA is a PITA especially if you try your luck with the color match.

    Yup, but this piece plays no part in the conductivity of the light and I find it a good opportunity to try out some anodizers. Still open to Delrin though.

    I don't want to step on anyone's toes (especially McGizmo's!). Besides the 2 stage Aleph tails, does he offer something similar for the Z-57?

    No toes methinks. It was for the L1 and he hated doing them IIRC. I tried to find the link but still "no joy" using the search function.

    I'd be in for 2pcs for the Z57 (any material you choose) and would also be interested in 2 pcs. for the U2 tailcap and one for the A2

    I do not think McGizmo offers any of those things right now although he made a small run (for the A2?) some time ago. I am quite sure you won't step on his toes here

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Nekomane,

    I have just got back to my lights, and it seems that the C-series clickie switches could be interchangable with the U2. And the C switch is a little too large on A2 and will not fit on it, and E-series is too small for A2. So U2/C-series, E-series and A2 are probably all different dimensions. I only hope you will do the C and the A2 as well, that'd be great.

    I am good for at least 2, delrin original or Al-HA. If these were easily availabile at this low price, I might go for 5 for my various tailcaps.

    I'm leaning towards black Delrin and should be able to get a quote from the machinist within a few days.

    Regarding the tailgurads for other models, the A2 looks like it has the same retaining ring as the E-series clicky and can be done. The U2, I have yet to see.

    Anyway, whether they will be made depends on how the current project goes

    If all goes well, the Delrin ones will be less than $US 4 each, shipping and padded envelope NOT included.

    I was just looking at my E1L, how do you get the stock retaining ring out of the Z-57? Do you need a special tool?

    segan,
    - Seal in a Ziploc baggie and boil for a few minutes. This will loosen the Loctite.
    - Grip in a beltwrench and use needle nose plyers or a Shimano TL-FC20 peg
    spanner (do a search here for the part number, these fit the notches in the retaining ring perfectly) to twist. Take care as the tool will slip easily and can scratch the HA finish.

    if you ever end up making them for those.
