That’s really cool. What’s the best source to order Carlco optics from?
Edit:
Carlco optics are very cheap and easy available in local shops.

I thin I’ll buy all available 105xx optics.

Do all Carclo 3 LED optics fit?

This looks very interesting:

Yes, all TIR lens from the same series (105xx) which share the same footprint, diameter and heigh will fit. Have fun with swapping and experimenting, first step to modding.
(Check each one’s PDF and compare dimensions if you have a doubt).

I’d say Arrow is your best bet. Prices are low and shipping is free.

I would very much like to be notified when the SST-20 versions are available.

You’ll know. Just look for the spike in a thousand posts in about a day. There will be the following spikes:

1. Now, because it’s ready to order. “I just got a PM telling me it’s ready to order! Yeah!” “I just placed my order. Yeah!”

2. In about 3-4 weeks, when people start getting them. “I just got a delivery notice! Yeah!” “I just opened the box! Yeah” “Etc.”

3. In about 4-5 weeks, when people start complaining about flaws. “OMG! The tailclip has a hole in it! I thought it wouldn’t have a hole! This is an outrage!”

4. Sometime soon after that, when the SST-20 version becomes available to order.

Repeat.

So, just look for the 4th spike.

The fw & the D4 are of similar size , I’m thinking the holster would be perfect for D4 ?

About to order mine. Quick question. Any concerns on ordering a Q30 cell from the seller? I know everyone is always cautious with these.

No concerns here.

Just get a 30Q from Neal if you want one included with your light.

The first batch of PMs is complete. Everyone on the first list should have a message now, except for Garth and Paradise, who have private messages disabled.

I’m updating the list for batch 2 now, and then the list will be closed.

Geez… wait until the last minute, why doncha? Smile

The interest list is now closed, with KawiBoy1428 as the very last request.

The final total for BLF’s list is 1670 people, 2479 lights.
(this includes people who signed up then cancelled, so the actual number is slightly lower)

The second batch of messages will start in just a moment, with a much shorter delay between so they should all arrive within an hour.

If you have already received a private message with the purchase details, you won’t get a message in the second batch even if you requested more items. Simply use the coupon from the first message to order the items you requested.

(for example, KawiBoy1428 was at the beginning of the list and the end, so a second message won’t be sent)

Admirable, but no need to worry. You only ordered what you were on the list for. They will make plenty of them.

Okay great thanks Blushing

Correct me if i’m wrong, but sst20 and xpl hi are the same footprint? A straight swap with no resistor changes is possible?

… and now all messages have been sent.

Except for three people who have private messages turned off: Garth, Paradise, and USA. I don’t have a way to notify you, so … hopefully you’ll see this?
