Hello LPF, I will present to the community my first review, the Magic Stick V3 26650, host created by Sinner. I only want to advice that my English language in not good, in case of grammatical errors sorry.
This MSV3 host is amazing; the machining work is excellent, the polished finish is like dreamed, the host weight and size is comfortable to the hand and easy to carry. The size of the heat sink is perfect, not too big and not too small, has sufficient room to put a dual driver and very efficient heat dispersion. The tail cap has an aluminum switch cover and need to be glued with epoxy but one time it’s added the tail cap look really, really well. The tail cap switch is not the best but work great. The focusing ring is not the standard one that screws direct to the lens barrel, this one practically is a cover to the conventional aixiz focusing ring. One time the project is finished you will get a real piece of art and technology in your hand.

Host Price: $75
Material: Aluminum “polished”
Heat sink module size: 12mm
Heat sink contact pill: 16.8mm
length: 6’’
Battery size: 26650 Li-on but with adapter can run with 1 x 18650 or 2x 18350/16340
Shipping time: 20 days

Additional components:
Positive contact: 17mm Gold plated Hoy baffle plate
Negative contact: soldered spring to switch wire
Driver: Lazeerer X-Drive @ 2.1A
Diode: DTR 9mm 445nm
Lens: 9mm original lens in a DTR barrel
Power source: Efest 18350 X 2 “3W peak”, AW 16340 X 2 “3W Peak”

How is the focus adapter held on the lens, epoxy?

The tailcap looks incredible as does the whole finished build for that matter. An all metal host is always a winner, this one is just gorgeous though.

Only need to press it a little and fit perfect.

Thanks my friend, this laser originally was 1.9W with one M140 and one X-Drive 1.8A, but one time tested my new DTR 9mm I fall in love and all change because with 2 x 18350 and one X-Drive 2.1A I got a solid 2.9W for 60 seconds. The beam is super blue and super bright, look more blue that my 2.1W BigBoy.
My LPM was from eBay and all cost me $109 shipped with manual and the last calibration was on 2005. My University laboratory $2,000 ophir and my personal $109 gentec both produce similar numbers with less than 2% error :D.:thanks:

$109 man thats a steal.. I recently purchased a 20c ophir head & necessary equipment to complete the setup and it has set me back about $300 till now, without the enclosure..
I suppose you got the similar to Ophir 30A-SH which sensor alone costs $270+shipping for the cheapest there is!! and i am lovin that classic 0.1W-30W setting on that awesome analog display and since its calibrated to +/-2% which is still very, very accurate than other lpms!!

Again Great looking build +1 :beer:
