***Giveaway ended*** modded Camo Mini-MagLite

Ok boys and girls.  Up for grabs is a modded Camo Mini-MagLite.  The head has been bored out to accept a P60 pill without reflector, design took from Match’s 15min mini mag buildThe 1 mode driver’s output is roughly 600mA at 1.5V to 1.2A at 4.2V.  That means it’ll accept 2 AA alkalines, 2 AA NiMH, or 1 LiOn battery.  I’ll even throw in an AA sized spacer if you should choose to use a lithium 14500.  A Carlco 20 degree frosted TIR lens replaces the stock plastic reflector.  The LED is nothing special but an XPG R5 1A and puts out a very even spill.

 

I built quite a few of these for my hunting buddies and sell them on the side.  They like to use it around the camp-site and one of them tucks it under his cap above his ear and uses it like a headlight for close up work.

 

Why am I doing this giveaway?  I like to give back to the BLF community from whom I have taken so much

 

What’s included?  1 modded Mini-Maglite (camo) + holster + AA spacer (I’ll pay for shipping domestic or international)

 

Who’s eligible?  Any BLF’ers who is not a douche~!

 

Just reply to this thread and I’ll choose a winner Saturday, September 28th.

 

Good luck~!

(Edit - September 17, 2013)

 

Quite a few of you have reached out to me about purchasing these torches.  While I appreciate you taking an interest in my little torches, I like to say that I am only selling these flashlights locally to avoid the horrendous shipping costs and because I'm just plain lazy.

 

I'm sure there are many BLF'rs here that would or can make them for you.  So for those modders that are willing to make one of these for our fellow BLF'rs, please feel free to post a reply in this thread.

 

Cheers

Count me in, it looks really, really, really interesting.

Darn it, I put in too many reallys. Man, I feel like such a douche.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.
