Received my 2nd order today, thanks kiriba-ru! Everything was nicely packaged and arrived in good condition. Can’t wait to put the x7 triple together : ), just waiting for some other parts from elsewhere. Also looking forward to seeing how your q8 12 led mod develops!

Sure.
If you know what to do with them.
I will have some more suitable rings (existing positive q8 rings a too thick to use a pair of them in such config) soon, if you need them you can wait about a week.

This is drop-in substitute. You can build full head and change them “on the way”.
Upd.
This set was made for quad build. But if you have shorter pill you can use single led with some optics or reflector.

I wouldnt make more of such pills. I can think about spacers, but not sure that M8 (with brass pill) is suitable host for this.

Is the full pill too difficult to make or too expensive to sell? I know the M1 had the expensive optics and machining but people seem to like the quad kits dont they?

It is too difficult to make by small quantities. I cant get calibration tool for threads when they are not standart size, so pill should be machined and test fit and then again machined etc. until it fits.
I dont feel M1 or M8 host suitable for 24mm carclo optics when M2 is available. It is smaller, available as bare host, and imo looks great, specially with gitd o-ring. I think M2 kit was 3 times more popular then M1.

So, convoy m2 actually looks like the perfect host for small quad.

I have a 24mm carclo optics in my M1 that I built a quad XPL-Hi. The optics is a bit on the small side though. Could be possibly 2mm-3mm larger and then It would cover the edge of the home made copper heatsink I made, but it works fine.

Thinking about more M2 kits (does liner ring requires changes or no).
Can anyone else confirm same problems?

Note 1: In my suppose stock thin o-ring was placed between bezel and glass lenses. I recommend to save this in quad mod.
Note 2: More recent version have already had thicker GITD o-ring

Yes I know. I have already made improved version with bigger o-ring groove and gitd o-ring.
I mean can you fix stock o-ring between glass and bezel? (Is it proper size or no).
