Hmm I wonder how the tail clicky would work with the momentary on button? Click the tail switch then hit the button? That would be better than the safety pin and key lock.
I'll probably talk to Glenn about the tailcap.Wait till the 6 month warrenty is up then disable the 5 second warm-up you can get a pin that will replace the trigger pin and not stick out so far so it dosn't get in the way, the other choice is to buy a new tail cap from CNI that only has a clicky in it
I would probably just leave it clicked in, like how I leave the key switch keyed on.Hmm I wonder how the tail clicky would work with the momentary on button? Click the tail switch then hit the button? That would be better than the safety pin and key lock.
Short of getting me to send it back for them to redo it, I doubt it. Plus it's not 'defective,' so I really can't.I wonder if theres anything they can do about the shutter? That really sucks not being able to use the beam expander.
A side-clicky would be nice yes, though I wish I could have both a clicky and a momentary. The remote connector is really just a safety-plug-thing. What's on the tail cap in lieu of a clicky is a key switch.What about a side-clicky? They claim to be able to do one of those as well. By the way, that "remote connecter" thing on the bottom of the tailcap, seeing as it has no useful purpose (feel free to enlighten me as to how/why I'm wrong with that statement ), could we possibly ask CNI to remove it / make the tailcap without it, to reduce bulk/length? Just tossing my couple cents in the jar...
peace & thanks
These features are available on request. That's why I'm rather confused; I didn't request them.They do make it without it. We can't figure out why Twhite got the only one that does have it...
They moved the button because a key switch was in the way.Normally there's the button there, so now that there's no button, I guess they decided to put something in it's place. If there were others like this one (side button, no tailcap clicky) that didn't have the remote connector, that would be even weirder.
peace & thanks
Ahh, yes I did. I meant to let you know that I'm trying to work with Glenn to get this resolved with CNI. Failing that, I'm going to sell the laser and get another without the features. The whole purpose I got this unit was to have a laser with absurdly low divergence.Alright thanks! Did you get my PM about the beam expander?
The "remote connector" is a safety feature. It's a pin that you put in the side of the tailcap, and can be seen in the image of the key switch.Good review. Could anyone tell us what does the "remote connector key" do since you mentioned that it has no FDA safety features? Thanks.
The key switch or other extra features might sacrifice its beauty.
