    Surefire G3 switch

    Has anybody swapped out the switch on a G2 or G3? I have a 3 laying around that I'd like to mount on an AR, but I hate the goof twist switch on the tail cap.

    What kind off tailswitch do you want to change it to?

    Are you trying to add a pressure switch capability?

    It SHOULD work. If you are wanting a "clicky"/momentary switch for your thumb on your AR. Now the extended pressure switches I dont know a lot about. Surefires are known to be "frankensteined" pretty easily. If you wanna know for sure call SF they are pretty friendly guys and have a great LEO program.

    Yes, I want a simple clicker on the end. I don't need or want a remote pressure switch. I found a aftermarket switch, but I don't know much about it.

    I don't have a problem with pressure switches, as long as there is a capability to use a switch without it. But, a normal tail switch is much simpler. Which one are you looking at putting on? Do you basically just want to have one with the push button capability?

    Yup, just a push button. The one I was looking at was called a "clicky" switch.

    Well, SF has one for 42.00 bucks, that would work.

    I tried putting the "clicky" tail cap from my Plican M6 on my G2, it didn't fit, even with it screwed all the way on, it didn't seem to contact the batteries.
