One of yours was super tight and other not so tight?

The rear button certainly seems as if it was has hastily added. It doesn’t appear to be water tight at all. The metal cap over the rubber boot also flops around some.

I’ve only touched one of them so far. Haven’t gotten around to trying to open the other.

That’s right, it was the internal pill that is so tight on yours. My bad.

Crap! My bezel unscrewed by pressing the front against a piece of rubber inner tube.

I was able to line up 3 bungee cords and put a small block of wood on top. I pressed with all my body weight and it still slipped. I then added a bit of water to the rubber and wiped it to make it as tacky as possible and it just barely broke loose. Wow! I finally got it. Party

No glue, but super tight and with little to no edge to grip makes it tough.

I was able to straighten out the ring shape. I’ll just need to do a little touching up on it.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Despite everything being super tight on it, it’s a really nice looking light.

I fixed the metal tail cap button from flopping around by adding a piece of thin cardboard between it an the rubber switch cover under it. So now it feels halfway decent. After looking at the design closer, it may be waterproof.

I really like the side switch. It’s a kind of a white/translucent hard plastic. The button pressure is not real high like my DQG Tiny 7x xpg2, so it’s nice to press.

Now I just need to wait for my 30mm Texas Avenger FET driver to arrive and I can trim it down to 26mm to fit. Wire up some nice power on leds to the switch, put the 26350 batteries in and then the xhp70. I’ll figure out how to get a copper block in there to add some mass while I’m waiting.
