Very nice! Creative work that pays off, gotta love it!

How’s the beam on it? Should be floody enough with the small reflector to pretty much eliminate the dark center…

You’re really doing some awesome work these days Man! Keep it up! Wink

Thanks very much, yeah it’s fairly floody but the reflector is also quite deep for it’s size.
There is just a slight hint of the crosshair in the beam, It sure heats up fast LOL

So cool you achieve builds that are outrageous in components AND look like made by a jeweler.
Amazing

That QTC switch is really cool and great implementation. Looking forward to measurements.

Ok. I know what it is now. Not to shabby. I thought the Brass looked thin in the what did you mod today thread and it is. Thumbs Up

Another nice one, CRX! I think a XHP-35 with 4× 10180 in a light like this would be nice, too! Wink
