So, here's an interesting build. Rich and I both came up with this while I was trying to figure out what to do with this ULTRA FIRE q5 host. This incorporates his astounding heatsink designs and into a smaller, modular package. Hit him up (Lifetime17) for this entire host assembly!!

P.S. This diode makes an awesome, tight beam.

Yeah I tried a 3 element and was surprised at the power loss. I settled with a G7. It's perfect. You should be selling more Q5s in no time :D

That's a very nice little build, Shotgun, you and Rich did a good job! :beer:
You're right, those single mode reds have a great looking beam; enjoy your new laser. :yh:

Does the sharp diode have a box reflection like the 505 and 473? I've been wanting to get the sharp lineup but want to know first.
