WTB: TOILET PLUNGER STYLE LIGHT. THE BIGGER THE BETTER

Looking to tackle a project that involves a big-ole flashlight. The bigger the better. Singles emitter reflector or the more common multi-emitter style, I’m down with both of them. throwers or flooders.

Working or not working.

There are several old school trustfire’s that seem like good candidates.

Preferable not working since I’ll be swapping the electronics with my own stuff.

Once the project is done, I’ll share the build and outcome on this site.

Blf GT and upcoming GT4 is the largest one. You can even buy battery tube extensions from Skylumen.

When I think of plunger style, I think retro. Similar lights are regularly available on Ebay - EXAMPLE LINK.

This is a Ray-O-Vac Super Power Sportsman (convertible to 3/4/6/7 D).

Why not go with a Sofirn SP70?

Terry, dude, nice find with a fair price. Another great sugggestion, nice.
I just got the SP70 from the US AMZ $50 code thingy they have. I like it so much that its going to remain stock. And the reflector is on the small side for my plans anyways.

If you’re still lookin’, I’ve got an Olight SR-90 that’s in good condition and was working until the battery balance circuit failed. I gutted the battery pack and was going to mod it to work with two large LiIon cells but decided I didn’t want a light that big anymore. $75 plus shipping.
