Good shout mack, you won't be disappointed!  

remove the quick change battery rubbish immediately though, wire it to deans and use 7.4v LiPo, cheaper and MUCH better trigger response. 

 

Or you can look for a very hard to find Eagle6 7.4 3200mah lipo.

Seriously bright.  Like seeing stars can disorient people bright.  

 

Won't ever buy another china clone torch again, the difference in light output is (LOLOL) night and day.

Thought the exact same when I got my TLR-1 a few years ago, the difference in the output and the unit itself is astronomical.  It's not like it's even a budget thing, with the amount I wasted on Element stuff that literally fell apart all by itself without any external input, I could've bought another real light.

Looking to get a holster and scope mount for it in the near future as I'm building it into a pistol I can run reliably as a primary.

Sooo....been buying stuffs

 

FAB Defense 1911 grips

Condor Gen 2 battle belt in CT (which I may have already mentioned but it took forever to get here from the US)

WAS large torch/suppressor pouch (which despite being from the same supplier is a completely different colour from all my other WAS stuff - more brown than tan)

Set of MOE rails for my M4 handguard

SHS delayer chip and shim set (again for the M4 - proving that no matter how much you try you can't quite seem to improve on a TM gearbox)

The thing with Marui gearboxes is that you're not supposed to do anything to them.

Except maybe a steel pinion gear so you can put a stronger spring in.

I have an M95 in my M4 (CQB innit).

 

So far it's had SHS helical gears (which came out again when I realised I am NOT a shimming ninja), SHS piston head, SHS nozzle, Kanzen 6mm bearings and will soon have the aforementioned delayer chip and a Lonex 14 tooth piston (the one with the second tooth already removed) plus (if it ever gets here) an Airlab sorbo pad to sort out the AoE and stuffs.

 

It all started because it was shooting at around 220FPS and getting about 15m range regardless of the hop setup. The gun was cheap second hand and is no longer my primary (that honour goes to a G&G SCAR-L) so I decided to use it to learn how it all works (or more often doesn't). It's been educational. And expensive.

TMs already have steel pinions,and pretty decent ones at that. Standard sintered+machined pinion,just as strong as any old stock pinion.

 

Thing is on TMs is that once you upgrade,you have to upgrade nearly everything and do it very well.

 

Once you replace the zinc sector gear you have to replace the other gears since the steel sector will chew the weaker steel gears up. Then you need to replace the piston since it's ABS and will get wrecked by the steel sector.And you have to do a good job at all that since TM gearboxes have very small margins allowing for error. One cockup and the whole thing grenades itself bit by bit so you have to replace any parts than can be a source of failure and tune everything correctly. 

 

That said not all TM parts are bad. Tappet plates are fine,cylinder,cylinder head and nozzle a good quality and seal well,hop up units are well made and Pistol grips give the best motor alignment. ZCI and TM pistol grips are the top choices for 'silent' gearbox build where perfect motor alignment is needed. I've found lots of pistol grips are cast shodilly so the motor alignment is off giving an irremovable screech.

 

TM seem to have improved the quality of the gear sets & pistons on recoil shock guns. The sector is still pot metal and does like to be chewed up under heavy stress but the spur and bevel are partly machined sintered carbon steel which is pretty good,they like to mesh well with other gear sets too. The pistons are much much stronger,and will not fail unless you jam in a very strong spring (m120+ above) or really cock up AOE correction.

Indeed, the Chinese lie! They may be using LEDs capable of 1000 lumens but the rest of it clearly isn't stacking up in most cases.

Lesson learned for me, will be sticking with genuine surefire where I can from now.

Got to ask - is the front plastic plate stronger than on the Chinese clones or is it just as likely to be shot out ?  I've been half tempted to splash out but at the same time scared that the first time I use one I'll be after a replacement piece of plastic (as happened on my cheap ASG clone)

The front face on a real surefire is tougher than a chinese plastic one, but it can still be shot out.  

 

tactical optician ( http://www.tacticalo...an.co.uk/?Store ) does protective lenses that you can fit to the front and will also fit replacement lenses to surefire torches if they've already been shot.
