Convoy C8 forward clicky?

I’m thinking about getting a C8 style light (I don’t really NEED one, just WANT one, you know how it goes ;)). Convoy C8 is praised for it’s good quality. The thing is, I really prefer forward clicky.
Is there a replacement forward clicky that fits a Convoy C8?

The only other option I know of would be a XintD V5.
Man oh man, I want them both Sad

nice find WarHawk. I’m also interested in this since I got a Convoy C8 from FT on route.

Nice, I was looking at that one, but the spring seemed much shorter than stock Convoy, so I wasn’t sure:

Thanks a lot!

I had been wondering this myself.

Out of curiosity would this also remove the blink or flash on the low setting telling you that can switch modes? I never cared for that with the convoy c8.

Another alternative with the forward clicky is Convoys L4 ( that is if you don’t mind a side switch for mode changes).

Changing the switch will not change any of the modes. The modes are defined in the firmware. The only way to get rid of the blink in low mode is to change the driver or flash new firmware such as STAR or Nlite.

I don’t mind the side mode switch, and I considered getting the L4 before noticing the modes change from high to low, instead of from low to high like in all my other flashlights, and that would probably drive me nuts.
