    Thanks for the head's up! Too bad the good 'ole American Dollar is such a wimp now-a-days. Then the 15 Fr would be even more affordable.

    The Gold is listed at 15 Fr.
    15.00 CHF = 13.3695 USD

    That sounds like a good price to me. I wonder what the shipping would be?

    Also, I ordered from action lights and they are running out of stock of the americana set if you haven't already scooped one of these up.

    Happy hunting folks!
    Speaking of AL... whatever happened to their website. I can't find a way of purchasing their products. All I see is a list of links to a whole bunch of products, related products, "product overviews", etc. but no way of placing an order.


    Please remind me, is the Anthrazit any different from bronze?

    if you go to the AL site -
    click on Maglite

    then you are presented with list of all their types of lights.

    then click on the type you want - for example, 2D . then you are taken to a screen where you can click on 'BUY' and add it to your shopping cart.

    I think the Anthrazit is a lighter color than bronze.
    Now I can see the darkness .

    I did a google on Anthrazit. It said a charcoal-grey but I bow to Will's knowedge

    I sent an email asking about USA shipments. Is this a good site to buy from?

    Is Hellblau the same as Shimmer Blue? What is the Grün color?

    Damn you guys for getting me started on Mini-Mags

    I bought one a few years back, I though it was going to be charcoal-grey,but it is a light bronze color.

    I sent an email asking about USA shipments. Is this a good site to buy from?

    I bought from them a few times - they were slow, but no real problems

    Is Hellblau the same as Shimmer Blue? No it is a different color blue

    What is the Grün color? Green ..

    +1 I was really hopeful the Anthrazit was going to be a nice, dark brown color, but no joy. It is not brown or bronze. That won't deter me, however, so the search is still on for a bronze .

    Hi, Will - would you mind pasting a link here?
    I've tried a couple of different ways of accessing the product pages and I can't seem to find the option to buy anywhere. (I'm after the burnt orange.... which doesn't load at all.)



    on the shipping charges from Germany.

    It hurt. I ordered 3 Mini-Mags at 45 CHF and the shipping was 44 CHF .

    Okay, so it costs about $26 each. My collection grows

    Green,

    Here's the link:

    http://www.action-lights.com/index.a...=shop%3Adetail

    I ordered a couple burnt orange today with no problem.

    The bronze from the swiss seller is a must have, they are awesome and old stock. As I remember the bronze is a walmart color the other is from a far away land from a seller charging entirely too much! Makes it much more fun!

    Sizzle!!

    That's really weird... now I type the AL link into my browser and get a home page that looks like what you linked. On my previous attempts, all I got was a long list of product links, but no way of buying them.

    ...burnt orange on its way.

    I'll think about that bronze one.

    With a growing collection of lights, I've looked for ways to store and display everything. After checking out display cabinets and the like, I've decided to do my own thing. I've decided to make a holder that will mount to a wall, level with the floor, and the lights will 'hang' by their head. Here's a bird's eye view of the holder - with capacity for up to 47 lights (could be cut down into smaller sections - this is just the most efficient use of a chunk of acrylic sheet):



    This is only a portion of the holder, and as you can see by the specification, the holder is made of 1" thick Acrylic. The lights are staggered front to back, and the heads will appear to overlap when viewed from the front. The bodies will have 1/4" separation between them.

    There's a little pocket to cradle each head, and prevent the light from sliding out of the slot.

    Presently, plans are to water jet the acrylic, or CNC it. After machinining, all surfaces will be flame polished so that the holder will essentially disappear, and the lights will look like they're floating in air. At least, that's the plan.

    FS, that holder looks nice. Please post any pictures when you make it.


    Is Hellblau the same as the Limited Edition Blue from Action Lights? Anyone?

    Flipside,
    Thanks for sharing this. If it works out, maybe you can help others with similar projects-a sale that is.

    Really nice idea, Flipside! I like the concept of the lights "floating" in midair.

    Well, preliminary quotes are coming in at $150 - $250, depending on how many get made. I must admit that's pretty spendy for a simple holder, but it will hold 47 lights, and mount directly to the wall. If you're interested in more details, feel free to PM.

    My new digital camo minimag came in today!

    It looks pretty cool, despite the pattern being painted (no surprises here).

    I was looking at the background color, and it reminds me of greenish HA anodizing. It doesn't look like the regular shiny Type II anodizing in other minimags.

    Flip, still haven't had a chance to dig for youknowwhat.

    Anyone know the color difference between the older Gold anodized Mini-Mag and the newer version? I was asked this question by a fellow CPF member but I do not have the newer version to compare it to. Here is a pic of what I'm referring to:

    Is there a difference? and - is the newer version from Maglite. I thought they stopped the gold color a few years back.

    Not sure if there is a difference either. Apparently the question came from a member with a gold MM that has a newer style bezel-not new, just newer than the ones I posted. Thanks for helping.

    Wow, that is a bunch of old school gold anodized lights you have there!

    They are the same color gold as far as classification is concerned.
    The "newer" version of the gold is a brighter gold color, these old school lights you are showing are a dull gold color. For color / variation collectors it is enough that I consider them to be different. Not all parties would agree with this.

    The only "newer" gold anodized MM's I´ve seen are those coming from that Hong Kong seller on eBay.

    I've been asked if the Hong Kong seller's lights are "real" or "fake", but I have no idea, and don't own any HK units to say (even if I did, it'd be hard to tell real from fake apart, I'd think).

    With all the color variations under the same name, they could very well be batch differences, for all I know. Seems to me that all of those "new but old" stock (with the squarish engraving) have duller colors than new production batches.

    roces! Hey, you got some pretty rare colors there (orange, for example; I've only ever seen 2 of them).

    I'm one of those who decided to collect *only* "Maglite colors not custom colors". Somehow "Mag colors" keep popping up, so hang on tight, 'cuz it'll be a really fun ride!

    Although old, turbodog's list of color codes hasn't changed and is the most complete list assembled. Sometimes we find a batch of a certain color (and same color code) that is deemed different enough from the regular offering.

    My buddy sizzle!!

    I just put all my green minimags together, and from darkest to lightest, I'd rank them as follows:

    green (aka. dark green)
    "greenLED"
    teal
    jade (slightly blueish hue)

    lime green is of a significantly different hue than the rest of greens and it doesn't quite match in a darkest-to-lightest shade of green rating.

    Teal is a slightly lighter shade than the "greenLED" color I have. It's almost as comparing gray vs. charcoal.

    The mental image I have of that odd sighting is somewhere in between around jade and teal/greenLED. Next time I see an odd color in the wild I'm gonna forget all manners and try to buy it on the spot.
