Greetings!  I'm about to order my first saber but I have a question regarding the quick disconnect option.  I'd like to get an Archon V3.1 with the Tri-Consular Green, but I would like to have option to swap colors later to the Tri-Guardian Blue.  The description on the quick disconnect option states that the is an option offered with sabers that use the MLS, but the Archon V3.1 is not listed as one that uses the MLS.  Can I still select the quick disconnect option and use a regular LED module with its own quick disconnect to swap out the color?

As you go through the options for the Archon 3.1, it will ask if you want quick disconnects

And, yes, you should be able to swap in a regular LED module with QD

Don't worry, the Archon 3.1 uses the MLS heatsink (wide lip at top)

As the owner of an Archon 3.1 with quick disconnects, I can confirm that you can specify them and they work just fine with any MLS units.  However, if you want to swap colors I highly recommend you spring for tri-cree MLS units in the other colors (as you appear to be planning) because the thin neck cuts down on brightness a ton and you need all the help you can get.  For that same reason I'd recommend a non-UltraEdge blade to avoid the additional brightness hit from the white polycarbonate.  I learned that lesson the hard way and had to order a clear blade later because the thing was just too dim even with tri-green.  That last bit's just my opinion, others may disagree.

Agreed, tri-cree is the best for Archon 3.1 IMO as well

Adding to what ktulu and DV said, Tri-Cree is the best to go with any saber in my opinion if you don't care for FOC.   It's the brightest and the color doesn't fade towards the tip of the blade.

Thanks for the help everyone!  I ordered an Archon V3.1 with the TRI Consular Green with the non UE heavy grade blade and the quick disconnect.  Now for the hard part...the wait for it to arrive.
