Could someone tell me what the benefit of an SS bezel would be? Do people want it for aesthetic reasons or for durability or something?

I think more for aesthetics. They look good. I’ve never had a flashlight with a dented bezel, wouldn’t bother me if I did.

I don’t think Astrolux will make these. The now arriving batch have glued bezel. What is the reason for a stainless bezel when you can’t replace it?

You can take off the bezel using strap wrenches and heat from boiling water

If I were used water mine were flooded because they misplaced the lens O-ring. But I managed to break loose it with just brute force and hand. Big Smile
That is good news but I think not everybody is able to break it. Mine has not too much glue fortunately.
