Modifying a RRT-3 w/ SST-50 to XML

Has anyone modified a RRT-3 w/ a SST-50 to a XML? I have one collecting dust and I’d rather give it a new life versus sell it? Thanks for any help you can provide!

Have you tried disassembling the head to gain access to the LED/pill? Those magnetic control ring lights can be a PITA to disassemble and I have yet been able to find someone who’s done a tear down of the light to gain access to the LED/pill.

If you can access the LED/pill without worrying about the magnetic ring, then it should be a simple matter of desoldering the star and replacing it with an XM-L.


I’ve been unable to gain access to the pill. Short of taking a hammer to it I have not been able to get the head off.
