Well people you'd never believe the difference now I've modded my torch up with Matt's lens and painting the reflector black,what a huge difference in beam tightness and throw fair play. Matt and Tom have been so helpfull with their knowledge and time CHEERS LADS

I've bought the torch and the Convex Lense from that link but when I unscrewed the front housing for the LED I tried to unscrew the old lense out from the front housing but it won't budge? how do you remove the old lense from the housing?

 

Thanks

Luke.

It should literally fall out have you removed /unscrewed it so you basically got the glass and can just see threads and side casing

Hi mike
Yea I'm not sure on that 1 think it's just the variation in the batches
I've never had to shave any off but our tom had to use some wet and dry to take some off once again both ordered from the same place so it's odd maybe the ultrafire are all slightly different sizes on lense diameter

Iv had the same lens fit one 501b and not the other 501b so I'm sure its a slight variation in the torch heads. No problem tho as the lenses are verry easy to sand down a bit with some wet and dry sandpaper.

What I've got planned Matt is one fixed to top of scope and another attached to a neck lanyard for one of my sons to wear/use.my plan of action is for my son to spot rabbit (come September) with the one on lanyard,i then switch on mine,he knocks his off,i shoot and hopefully hit rabbit. method in my madness,I've only got to raise gun when target is spotted and reason for lanyard they're only young boys that will easily drop and lose torch,I've also attached a keyring led torch for gates/fences etc.im going to spoil myself and order one of clusons scope mounted bracket intended for pro spotter torches.just had tube measured of 501b so i can order right size diameter bracket.What would you suggest to use on gun?torch with wider or smaller spot/square?

Hi patterdale, I may be wrong but I think it is not the size of the led but the distance of it it is from the lens as i noticed this before slightly between my torches. Maybe there is a slight difference in the length of the refractors? On mine they have been a slight different size but still good so its not bothered me as once your in a field with it the difference is hard to see.

I been using as matt says, tighter one on the gun and wider one for spotting but I not noticed a big difference while using them.

The cheap Chinese batteries have been fine, iv heared people say they are dangerous but I never seen anything dodgy about them whatsoever. A pound each from China and a bit of a wait but all been good so far.
