6061-T6   Be aware. Make sure the anodize shop knows the alloy and masks the threads!  Otherwise they may not fit (probally won't) together.  And anodize is not conductive....no electrical path...no light!

And tell them to do it PERFECT - the LC deserves no less!

BTW - have you considered just buying one of the SE editions of the LC?  Available in Black and Natural  HAIII with special logo, and matching LionHeads and battery tubes!  100 of each were made!

When I read this last night, I thought what a shame to see the bare alum. Cub transform into HA. It's your light, and you should do whatever you want with it of course. I love my bare alum. Cub so much, and my Orb Raw that's made that way also. In fact my Cub is still my favorite BulkWare light, even over the Ti Chammie and LionHeart, which are great lights in their own right. Love that Auto-Lockout!

Just think , if you buy one of the SE Cubs, you'll have a spare Cub!  :thumbup:
Incans: SF G2, Pelican M6 Lithium, SL TL-3, Mags, MinMags, Browning Thunder & Lightning Bugs, M*G74
Hybrid: SL TT 2L, SF A2
LED: SF U2, Inova T4, Gladius, HDS U60, SG 30 LED, Coast lights, 8 LED AAAs, VB-16 3W, CPF LE #13 VB-16, LionHeart, Orb RAW, LionCub, McLux PDIII, Chammie, TiChammie,RawNS
