9mm forward clicky switch

Okay, I’m looking for a particular type of switch.
The only one I have is from a Thrunite Ti5 and is 9mm in diameter.
This one is interesting to me because I want to make more flashlight-host-based laser pointers but they are more practical with a forward switch for momentary activation.
Kaidomain has some revers ones that are the right dimensions :

Now, if anyone knows where to find some that would be nice !

They say “reverse” but I guess you have a good reason to link me to them ?

No problem. Smallest decent forward clicky I’ve found yet.

Thanks for the thread and info! Didn’t thought those could be FW clickies! That said…a whole new window of possibilities is open Wink
