Yep, I even have some pre machined bezels. If you want to order one just put a note in the comments section of the order and we can supply it without lens and the shorter bezel for you to screw your Yukon lens into. :thumbup:

What will these be like in a sunranger which already has the black sun pill in it will it be much better?

All I can say is that there is a noticeable difference to the AS pill that is in my T38 Sunranger and a BS502 that I got from Clive, so that is why I asked about the new BS22 with the same output being modified to a Sunranger. Hopefully should be pretty good without the bulk/weight of something like a T74.

I think you may be missing out a decent market by not having any for the EVO type torches yet Clive.

As you can get your own pills made you can accommodate 20mm boards if you omit the cooling grooves in the stock one's. That would be more of an upgrade than intensity alone because some of the internal reflections would also be addressed.

Hi Marcos,

It will be 40-60% brighter depending on what pill and bin of LED you have in there at the moment.

On the ground that should equate to 20-30% more range. 8-)

Also on intermediate ranges if you are getting a decent image from your system at 300 yards, that should then push out to 360-400 for the same quality of image.


Cheers
