Doesn’t outperform the XHP-70, no. At peak on a 6V MT-G2 it makes around 4300 lumens. The XHP-70 can do up over 7000 at peak, top tier binning.

The XHP-70 is 4 XM-L2 emitters on one base. The MT-G2 is an array of 72 small dies. Different animals.

Edit: That’s not hypothetical. I have a P2 binned XHP-70 in a Convoy L6 making 7245 lumens.

did you see a way on the driver to be modded to work with regular cells?

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDLY CONTACTS!

would connecting the "front negative contact spring" to the case enable regular cells to work?

The simple answer is no.
Grounding the top tapped ground ring to the brass pill does not allow it to work with a regular cell. The internal components will have to be addressed, if it’s possible at all.

Is there enough metal stock to bore our the battery tube and use a 21700 battery? The TM03 body is very thick.

The flats on two sides are actually deeper than the grooves for o-rings, this minimum outside diameter is 23.8mm. The inside diameter is 19.1mm. That gives 2.35mm thick walls at the milled flats where the name is. If you were to try to bore it to 21.2mm then the area at those flats would be quite thin.
