Re: Vital Gear Sales (Part 7) Reserved for pictures.
PM replied. Thanks for the question. As Vital Gear Sales (Pt. 7) is just getting underway, a couple of things should be noted. All of the E2C BK adapters are black. A perfect matched set of FB2 + E2C, , will only be available to the first buyer of the black 2 x CR123 flashlight body. (There is only one FB2 BK available for this run.) There are several FB2 HA bodies available and the HAIII of the Vital Gear matches the HA III found on popular e-series heads,as shown in the second post of this thread. (VG FB1 HA + SF KL4) Of course the Vital Gear one cell flashlight bodies, FB1, are available in black, and compliment the type II black anodizing of the E2C adapters perfectly. Many of both are available. - lightknot

Hmmm I still may get one. Hopefully there will be some left by payday. Running Steves' e-series dropins off of 2AA's is a very appealing thought..... I suppose I could paint it with the proper paint....
Price drop on the "Grey and Black" combo set. $60 for a Vital Gear FB2 HA and a Vital Gear E2C adapter. Just add a Z44 (or similar) bezel and a drop in, and you are ready to go. Low profile, bezel down, and silent switch.
Mike Docherty Order received and ships in less than 12 hours. Edit: Shipped.
Vital Gear FB3's are only available in HA. Cerakote finishing and plating are options offered on CPF proper. Below is an example of chrome plating on a Vital Gear FB1. (Thanks to Cuso.)

Reason: shipped order
Price drop on the "Black and Grey" combo. It's an FB2 body and an E2C adapter. This is a good way to run your Surefire bezels and P60 drop-ins with a Vital Gear body, especially if you like a very low profile carry.
