A bit OT, but how does the bigheaded Streamlight TLR deliver? It's ugly as hell, but I'm strangely drawn to the concept.
Also, flashaholism is a lifelong disease. I've done the 12-step program, but once in a while I fall of the wagon. Right now I'm trying to keep myself down to 1 Surefire a year, but it's hard...
I have demolished 4 cheapy laser sights just to see how the POI adjustment is made....the 6 o'clock and 3 o'clock adjustment screws are the norm across the board. They just vary in ways to return to a touch beyond natural zero.
Some use o-rings and a shim....some have offset o-rings....some have spring pins opposite of the adjustment screws....etc
I'm going to form a slightly offset silicone sleeve (heavy at 10:30....with adjustment screws at 6 and 3.....with a hard set screw at about 10:30. This will allow for a 3 point lock up....the rear of the diode will be in a cone so it's movement will be restricted to a pivot....and will be held into position by the teflon washer on the front cap.
At least that is the plan....
