Xtar WK42 extension tube?

Have a WK42 coming. Is there an extension tube available to convert to AA/14500? Thank you.

Don’t think so. I’ve never heard of one at least.

Does anyone have a 42 and a 41? I’m wondering if they lego. For the same basic reason.

I had Sad left my wk41 at the office and someone stole it..
Anyway they do not lego, 41 is longer but thinner and 42 is vice versa, shorter & thicker.

Ebay vendor cancelled my order. Stated they were out of stock…despite the ad saying there were more than 10 available. Maybe a bit fishy, I don’t know. Sad

Well, I just ordered this after looking at the reviews here on BLF: On The Road M3

I used CC GB6688 for 10% off which about paid for priority shipping (7-12 days) and insurance. I don’t know if that was a wasted few bucks or not as I’ve never ordered Priority Line from GB before, nor have I added the insurance. Has anyone? Is it actually 7-12 days instead of the usual 3-5 weeks?

Anyway, this looks to be even better that the WK42 from what I’ve seen in reviews.

I was afraid that would be the case, I knew it would be longer but I was hoping they just necked down the tube.
Thanks for the reply.

Question now is if there is any extension tube that converts an OTR M3 to 14500/AA. Be interesting to see if anything is out there for that. Wink

Yeah, a guy with a lathe could make a killing off of us if he could put up with the weird requests Cash

He really could. And really, not such an odd request to have an extension tube to convert a CR123 to an AA or vice versa. Or an 18650 to an 18350 and vice versa. Convoy does it, Nitecore does it. Would make a nice selling point I would think.

That part makes sense, it’s the stuff after that that’ll make him crazy.
