Differences in the Original RRT-01 and the New Version with Brass pill.
The brass pill makes the New Version 1 ounce heavier and 1/8” fatter.
2. No strobe on Original RRT-01. Yes Strobe on New Version.
3. New Version pocket clip is long, past the control ring. Some Originals got short clips, and they can still be bought.
4. New Version is set for higher max power draw.
5. New Version fits 19mm Carclo without modification to the diameter of the optic. Original requires customizing the optic’s diameter.

6. New Version is XP-L, Original is XM-L. They have different reflectors, the Original has rings in the spill beam.
Based on that photo I opened up my TCR-01 triple to double-check the optic. Looks like I did modify the optic after all so that it would fit.
However the modification to the optic was extremely simple. All I did was file down about 1/4 to 1/3 of the outside of each of the 3 legs. Basically 5 minutes with a small handfile. None of the rest of the optic needed modification… just the legs.
Why did he scratched them like this ? It’s ugly no ?
Mine now rocks a 219B and an OP reflector from an Eagle Eye X2R.
I had to grind the outer diameter of the reflector by about 1mm.
I removed the stock centering gasket to allow a better focus, but the beam is not that good…
I might try with a 219C, the old 219B is too cold (I think it’s 5700K)
SST20 3000K, triple MCPCB from KD (1mm thick) and their optic (really smooth beam), plus a small alu spacer that I made today at work.
I had to add some length to the stock wires, but the good news is that the stock pill already have a 4mm hole right in the center.
It’s not waterproof anymore, I like when the optic sits flush in the bezel but it’s doable with an o-ring too.
I love it already.
Oh, it does 600 lumens on the highest mode too… not too shabby for a 95CRI 3000K source !
(the precedent LH351D with stock reflector was about 470 lumens, talk about low current efficiency !)
thanks for the photos and info about LED options, parts, and optics you used
you could almost build a kit, or people could copy your example, if they had a few specs for the spacer… etc
can you line up some of those LEDs so I can see what they look like?
