I was using this light every night when going out to track down our indoor/outdoor cats to bring them inside. As a result I found I was going through a lot of the CR123A batteries. I had another flashlight that takes the rechargeable 18650 batteries, but of course they won't fit in the Fury. Eventually, poking around the internet one day I found Cryos Illumination, who I had never heard of. I checked them out a bit, and they seemed to get some good mentions on the Candlepower forums website, so I decided to take a chance and order this replacement body. One potential pitfall here is removing the head of the Fury - it is pretty much glued on with the strong "red" Threadlocker, but when I called Surefire, they told me it was possible to remove it simply by applying a little heat from a heat gun. So I went out and got one of those, and a strap wrench, and put the body of the Fury in the bench vice (padded of course), and proceeded to heat up the head... gently at first, but eventually it came loose (I think it was around 500F I used on the heat gun). You just feel your way, and it will come off eventually. Be patient.
Anyway, after I put the new body on, I had a heartstopping moment where I thought it didn't work any more, but it turned out I just hadn't tightened it all the way yet. After I did that, worked fine. You need to be careful with the spacer that is in the Surefire, a delicate circular piece of thin metal that sits in between the head and the body. Not sure what it does, but no doubt it's important, so take careful note of how it is in there when you take the head off initially!
I also had a bit of a problem when I put too much grease on the threads of the body and tailcap. I had read that silicon grease is good for preserving the rubber O-rings, but I think I put too much on and it affected the working of the light. It kept going to dim after a minute on high. But after cleaning everything off again, it worked fine. So lesson learned... not too much grease.
Anyway, now I have a Fury that can use 18650 batteries! Fantastic, I don't have to buy the Peacekeeper (I don't really like how that light goes straight to bright mode - I know that might be good for cops, but for my use, I prefer dim-bright, not bright-dim). Very happy, this is a good upgrade for the Surefire P2X Fury.
Oh, and one last thing - they even included a tiny button magnet in a bag, which I had no idea what it was for. I asked via email, and he told me it was for some 18650 batteries that are a little bit shorter, and have issues making contact with both ends. But I am using Orbtronic batteries that have a small button top, and they don't need it. Still, a nice touch, and good to have "just in case" I have to use different batteries at some point.

A nice piece of gear. Immaculate work both inside and outside.
The grip on this is much better than the Surefire stock body, far less slippery.
I'm using this on a P2X Pro head, with an Oveready Triad Tail with a McClicky switch. It works flawlessly, even without the thoughtfully provided magnetic nipple, on flat tops.
Delivery to the UK was about 10 days, which is the average for purchases from the US.
I f you can get your head off and can't find someone to bore your body, get one of these. I cannot recommend it more highly.
