Tony, buy one from dtr's shop. They're 45 bucks plus shipping. You just have to take out te old lens and screw the new one in. Beware of the glue though ;P

I dont even weaken the glue.. Just twist very carefully and all is good with me :) never had a failure with 9mm lenses :D that is different about the diodes though :( but i guess ot is easier to put in alcohol first. Nice touch dtr!

Greetings, :p

Offroadfreak, the glue was an inside joke haha. I glue EVERYTHING together in my builds. Blaster has to unscrew the lens from the focus adapter but the lens has a little glue on the threads to stop it from moving :)

Yeah if you wish to play it completely safe follow DTR's advice.

But like ORF said, just twist gently and pull away it works every time.
