i was thinking that my maglite already has the led upgrade, but i may be wrong. i will still buy an extra set for both lights though. maglites are actually good lights for the price. everyone praises streamlight and surefire, and they may be better, but im not spending that much $$$ on a flashlight, when a maglite does the trick!!

My thoughts exactly. I'm sure they're good, but are they $300 good? I use my flashlights for hours at a time, on and off while camping or a few minutes here and there. I think it's retarded to spend $200-$300 for a light with 20-30 minutes of run time regardless if it's rechargeable or not. I don't want to carry 6 sets of batteries camping and keep them dry, or reach for the light in my truck and try to remember if I charged it recently.

If I want to stun a deer with my light I'll grab the 2mil spotlight behind my driver-rear seat!

I thought Allpro was what I as set on, now I see these?! Me like. They seem to have more features than Allpro's have.

My future goal.

Nah.... I was born a couple decades later.... But the same philosophy applies! Sounds better to me than "there's no such thing as a free lunch...."

40S&W is nice, but it's still not a four five. Never much cared for the sig's either, I just don't like how they feel in my hand. I'll stick to my Glock 21 with the lasermax guide rod internal laser, and glock tactical rail light in 45ACP.

Just to prove I can get way off topic too.

Now thats a nice gun. I have a Glock model 23 with the police package. My buddy bought it for me while he was in the accademy and could get a deal. Its a .40 with 3 high cap mags and the tritium night sites and the tactical "rail" for lights or lasers. i got it all for $450 and love it.

All the more reason to replace the control arms. And while you're in there you might as well weld in some spindle gussets.

Not sure offhand how big 315's are, but my 285's have about 1/4" of clearance between the UCA and rub slightly when turning lock to lock. I run stock alloys, btw.

Pics as promised!





Rivet to the plastic. I used small rivets with washers on the inside for more bite, but some came out so I replaced them with 5/8" ones. Much more solid now!
