Let's play "Guess That Lego'd Light!!!"

A little fun tonight for us light loons.

What lights is this lego’d from?

(This is an easy one. There are more to follow and not so easy. All of these lego’d lights actually screw together well enough to be functional and are stock configured. No machining or alterations. These simply screw together as is. Although this particular one so far is just for looks I have no doubt some of you could make it work like a champ.)

Edit: cool game!

You guys are vewwwy close. But this is an exact game. So I need to see who nails this exactly (should’ve mentioned that specific brands must be stated) before I go on to the next lego!

MRsDNF, threads are close. Other than where you see the o-ring showing due to the quantity of female to male thread differences this ensemble still screws together like it was meant to from the factory. IOW there is plenty enough thread engagement that this light is entirely potentially functional. Just needs a switch and driver. “Just”. :bigsmile:

I’ve been thinking about how to rig up a side switch with this setup. Or maybe a rear clicky. Much less a driver. I believe it can be done.

Just so you know, the OAL is only a tidge under 6 1/2”. Talk about what could be one mean mammajamma pocket rocket! Big Smile

DenBarrett certainly shows the proof and then some. It’s a FandyFire UV-S5 (SRK clone) mated to a polished Defiant Super Thrower (DST) head. Remove that o-ring and it looks like it could be almost factory.

Now who’s capable of making this thing sing? I mean you know, there’s only 4 × 18650’s in that tube. :bigsmile:

Anyone? Bueller?

I knew I recognized those cut outs on the handle there. That fandy is on my ‘buy when I win the lottery’ list.

This is a little tuffer. It will run off a 26500 if you bore out the tail cap and side clicky housing a bit otherwise a 18500 with a sleeve goes in without boring. OAL is coincidentally to the Fandy/DST is also just
6 1/2”.

Feels really great in the hands which IMO is helped by the side clicky. Everyone that picks this up goes, Ooooooooooooh!!!!!!!!!

Looks like a shortened version of the standard 3C Defiant light. ( probally using a single 26650, 18650, etc. ?

Yup, he nailed it. Almost. It’s a 5C. So all ya gotta do is somehow find a 5C Defiant that can actually be taken apart from the tube and then just thread the tail cap to the side clicky part which threads perfectly. And voila! You now have a compact little blaster. Especially de-domed. :bigsmile:

Most of the 5C Defiants btw are stuck together with nitro glue.

EDIT: Ooops I spoke too soon, although that works too

I should be disqualified from guessing, but I will anyway.  Ultrafire SG-R13 tail and one of the many decent C8 heads available on the market.

I had an unfair advantage.  You recommended that combo here.  I remember because I purchased the SG-R13 on that recommendation.  I have not performed the recombination yet though.

but what the hey a darn good calculated ‘guess’ is better than pulling it outta somewhere dark! I think you’ll like the setup.

It’s a Defiant 2 x AA head which has now been discontinued. They were clearanced out at just $4 in a two-pack for awhile there. Great all-time bargain deal indeed. The drivers alone are worth it. Old-Lumens did this thread on it…..

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/22324

Its boost driver is neat in that it’ll run off a single 1.2V, AA, or AAA eneloop, alkaline, on up to a 14500 and has three modes with an always turn back on to high and is quite efficient. The XTE emitter IMO is underrated (and often ignored) and yet performs deceptively bright out of this OP reflector. Strobe particularly is blinding as all get out. De-Doming gives it that little extra throw.

The tube and tail cap is from a cheapo Small Sun ZY-203. OAL is now just 4” including the crenalated bezel. Everything mates up nice and tight as if factory produced. Put a clip on it and you have an even cooler little lightweight setup.

I put two o-rings on the tube to give it an extra easy handling tail cap switch. O-rings used like this really transform many lights into being much more user friendlier. Try it and see for yourself. Wink

The body of this one will thread into the tail of a stock SK68, making it a 3-AA Sipik tail clicky. Smile

Wow that c8 head lego looks awesome. How tall does it stand? Any pictures of it next to a typical solarforce p60 hosts or other standard lights for size comparison?
