  • Slight blem but functional

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good finish and all threads clean and smooth with almost no play. Smooth reflector with no flaws. O-rings throughout, nice beefy pill, reasonable mass for heat sinking.

    Cons:

    Mine had uneven rim on the front bezel ring; leaves a slight gap between the bezel and reflector housing on one side but the o-ring will seal out moisture- more cosmetic in nature.

    OtherThoughts:

    This particular kit was obviously a quality control failure from Aurora as it came branded with the company name and model number etched on it. Would have preferred all black as pictured. A Q5 with sku 1885 makes for a very nice compact thrower that really reaches out for such a small light.

    Bottomline:

    Decent deal for a DIY light of your own design. Should either be listed as blems or offered as a DIY kit that is clean and free of defects for those making them as gifts or for sale.
