wow!amazing collection!!many classes products included!but if you're interested in the new version led flashlight, seems like 90 outdoor led torch, just have a look!!

Thanks, but no thanks

Got me one of those "GreatLite" Maglite knock off's recently

Junk to some. Great potential to some. I dig it.

Put a PR based xenon 4 cell bulb in my turbo charged Kel-Lite 2C



Yup, that's a 2C incan light now a 6 volt incan


This baby HIPCO from the 1950's is next.

A week of incoming incans to modify and a super cool addition of a big head NIB 3D B-Lite.


Top to bottom:
- 3rd gen Kel-Lite or 1st gen Streamlight 2D. Basically a well used Streamlight made in the Kel-Lite factory that'll get 26650's and a 5 cell bulb.
- the NIB B-Lite
- a pair of Brinkmann Legends in 3D flavor for a Malkoff mod and a hot-wire mod.


The big head 3D versus a 2D small head B-Lite


Brinkmann is Malkoff'd and boy does it pop.


A vintage 3C Radio Shack, LA Screw Code 4 knock-off


Even down to the swap-able barrel.


A heavy solid brass "executive light".
This 2C twisty switch number got a pair of LifePo4 18500's and a KPR 113 bulb really brought it to life.


Glass lens, metal reflector, all metal components 100% servicable. It's weighty like holding a can of soda.

Nothing else on the radar.

First LED in a while.
A classic. One that set the stage for many things to follow. Founder  of ARC Peter Garnshee was a role model to none other than PK himself. It's an honor to have this one as I never figured on it, regardless of condition or price.
I found it while searching for a particular 1970's Radio Shack light.

Recent additions: Some received a mod or two. Others are new to the collection.


Elzetta Bones and Alpha with a Laser Products 6P

Bones gets a speed clip and Alpha hi/lo tailcap, Alpha gets a QCB  bezel and twisty tailcap, Laser Products 6P with Malkoff M61WLL gets a speed clip attached to the tail cap.
The Bones and 6P both have a wrist lanyard that when pocket carried droops from the pocket. Two finger quick grab of the loop allows for insta nun-chuk if need be.


Early 90's 3D Camel promo Maglite and a modern 2D Malkoff'd one


Late 80's production 2D Maglite and a3C ML50L. Both with wrist lanyards

A couple of modern Maglites.
ML50L in 2 and 3 cell versions.


Super duper rare Sigmalite 2x aaa to go with the only really rare 2x aa.


Added a minty stock black SureFire G2, along with a Malkoff M60 thrower to go in a Pentagon eX2 and a Malkoff M61 NLL to compliment the yellow G2.

VareBeam #2133 returned.
It's the same light in the first pic on page 1 of this thread.
I gave it away and the OP restored it and sent it back several months later with a Streamlight SL20 made in Barstow Ca post Kel-Lite acquisition.

It's a mess so no pix of that one yet.

I arrived home from my local Home Depot with Maglite ML300 number xxx199357 and Mr. Postman had left my first SureFire E2 in the mailbox. I now see what all the hub-bub is about both of these lights

old + new =  8)

Later I found a Classic 2D Mag LED in blue at my local Wal Mart. Those things are drying up these days as the ML stuff replaces them. About as bright as a 6 cell incan without being required to carry the Louisville Slugger sized flashlight. At only 168 lumens their real world output is nothing short of amazing.


By sundown I had 3 more in the collection.

Added a minty SureFire E2E with 3 flats

This one has me thinking 120 lumen 219D Tana drop in

And a one of a kind

Sigmalite 2x N cell prototype.
This light was never produced. This is the only one ever made according to Don Keller who made it during his Sigmalite days.

And last but not least this post....

A Kershaw edition SnapOn red Sigmalite
Came in a kit with a real nice knife and sold exclusively by SnapOn

E addiction continued to 4, but now I'm cured
I acquired an LED body for my Defender and have discussed with "Tana" a nichia 219 module that puts out like an original beam with 17 available configurations.
An olive drab click Executive and a natural finish clicky was too. The NA clicky will get a Tads setup, and the olive will stay stock-ish using a 6 volt Lumens Factory bulb.

Being it's mid November there's still time to add to the collection , yet there's nothing on my radar until Maglite releases the ML150 3C sized Magcharger number touting 1000 lumens. Eh, if I stumble across a 2 cell ML300 or an XL version at a local store I'll but those. But the SureFires might just be the last ones for 2017.....
