Milky DesTROYer III
« on: February 01, 2008, 03:47:43 AM »
I've been asked a couple of times by member 'Fuhgetaboudit' to post pics and details of my DesTROYer.  I don't think I had ever posted about it before. It's the third - and best - version.  This was built completely by Milky.  I provided only the name DesTROYer, pun intended, and the Surefire SW01 Fatty Tail.  Milky and I discussed how I wanted it to perform and he gave me all sorts of ideas.  I wanted it as bright and white as we could get, run time of lesser importance.  Milky advised that it be built with the best ingredients, including a copper heatsink.  Equally important was the look: it has a Leef 2xCR123 knurled body and the absolutely, positively must-have, extremely hard-to-find, Surefire KL2 crenelated bezel ring.  It also screamed for a fatty SW01.  The brain is a regulated 464 lumens of bright, white light, just what the doctor ordered: X464 SSCP4 USWOH McR16ms.

That is one serious flashlight!  :thumbup:

How about posting photos of the prior generations?

Good idea, Reg. 

Here's the DesTROYer I.  Note the "lesser SW01 chef's cap non-fatty tail" and the C-M adapter.  Plus, the plain ol' C2 body:



Here's the DesTROYer II (bottom in photo).  The Leef body gets introduced, as well as the KL2 cren bezel and fatty SW01.

Thanks Troy for posting a great review, great pictures, and a Great Incentive to now have Milky Build a DesTROYer for me!  That light just oozes sexiness and is definitely a "MUST HAVE" for my addiction.

Speaking of oozing...

Didn't Pilar prefer the Destroyer in the end?
