Just get one of Clive`s BS 2 B22 and ask him to supply it with the machined bezel for the ranger lens and it just screws straight on.

TR38 from Andy/Skany at Ludicrous Lumens
Yukon Ranger lens from Microglobe

Simple swap of bezel and lens for the Ranger lens....standard AS led so won’t be quite as bright as Clive’s BS2 T20 AS pill.

To get a closer fit on my Drone Pro I removed the 3 lanyard lugs on the back of the torch in the lathe (I knew it would be useful :lol: )

To get the full range of focus I also ground (pre-lathe) the knurled bit of the pill back almost level to the torch body and removed the O ring under the pill..... this gets the moving rear lens of the Ranger nearer the led.....and combined with taking the O ring out, cures the problem of it changing modes when the surround of that moving lens contacted the face of the pill.

Looking forward to when Clive overcomes the heat dispersion problem(?) on the TR pills and offers a BS2 version with its associated higher heat output.

Cheers

A correct grip on the butt & cheekweld is imperative for accurate shooting. :crazy: :lol:
