At the risk of messing up this giveaway thread, I will try to answer a little about this cut down.

 JohnnyMac is the cut down go to guy here, when it comes to Mini-Mags. He has perfected it.

I did buy one of the taps for tapping the threads. I did not however buy a drill as I am cheap and besides, what fun is it using a drill for a tap hole? I cut 50mm off the end of the body, with my tubing cutter. I measured the original depth of the threaded end of the body and went down the same depth. I opened it up with an small end mill bit using the bit in the drill press and turning the body around against the bit, to open the inside. I did that slowly and in several small steps, so I could get "about" the right ID for the tap. Then I cut the step on the very end, where the tail cap seal goes, with my 115 Dremel bit, in the drill press. After that, I tapped the hole for the threads. It was that simple, LOL. 

I do not plan to do many of these 1AA lights. I just wanted to see if I could and thought the giveaway was the best way to go, since JohnnyMac does a great job on them already...  Of course, I have thought of doing one using a couple watch batteries, so that the whole light is no longer than the head plus a couple mm to be able to grab at the tail.

In for the camo.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
