Oh, and there's a probably CREE one (judging by the pictures) that comes with a fitting extension ring, so no need to mod anything, at 8.59$: http://www.ultraok.com/zoomable-3-mode-cree-led-aluminum-flashlight-torch-200-lumen-1xextension-ring_p1826.html?cPath=882_884

Or to almost anywhere else in Europe... very weird.

But you could always ask the seller if he is willing to send to your country, they usually say yes.

Got some great news for you Haggai Cool I received the extension ring and like yours it doesnt fit... BUT I was so frustrated to fit an 18650 into c30 that I figured it out! 18650 fits C30 without extension ring! You just have to remove the tailcap spring and unscrew the ring that holds the switch. Now you have almost 1 cm more space and 18650 fits without a problem! Just try it! And to make things even better (at least for me Tongue out) the extension ring fits onto another 3xAAA light that I got. 

So, it does work Smile

0.4A with 3xAAA, 0.5A with the crappy Ultrafire LC 2400, 0.95A with the flame Trustfire 2400. That's direct driving a Cree XR-E P4... not bad. Smile

But I still prefer to not need to hold everything in place whenever I want to change battery.
