Maglite MiniMag AA. Terralux LED conversion+Tail cap switch. Maglite 6D+LED TLE310 LED Conversion module, Fenix E15, LED Lenser M17R. Maglite 3 x AA+Hahnel LSD NiMH cells.
have a mac tools 3c black.pre c serial.mac tools logo on head.modded with a k2 tffc.i have owned it approx 17 years.a friend got it out of a garbage truck while packing a load.makes the new magled seem like a bad joke.
i can be more often found at http://budgetlightforum.com
Not sure if this is a rare Mag Lite but here's mine. A 5C Mag as a gift from my dad back in the 80's. just unearthed it today so I immediately cleaned and lubed it.
I remember that I had changed the bulb shortly after receiving this from my dad. Stock bulb is on the right while a slightly "more powerful bulb" for Mag Lites on the left.
Both bulbs still work perfectly after almost 11 years in storage (misplaced). Hehe!

Being the light n00b I am, I have have a 6d that has been around my house forever with a serial number of d6002226471.... Was thinking of butchering it up for my first mod.....
On the other hand, you might even try a small hardware store in a larger city. With SO many people bypassing 'mom and pop' stores in favor of big box stores, it's sometimes quite surprising what kind of gems you can find in the small stores.
Funny thing is, I actually wanted to buy a 6C Maglite several years ago at Fry's Electronics. But I figured I just couldn't justify spending the money since I figured I already had enough lights (including a 6D light). If only I would have known. Just the other day, I found a 4C Maglite (still available, but rare in stores nonetheless) in a local hardware store. And I snatched it up. I have to say that, after using this light, I REALLY like the feel of the C-cell Maglites.

My first post here, but I've had my Maglight for many moons.
I bought it at Costco around 1984-1985 in SoCal It is stamped Varibeam mfg by Mag Instruments Ontario Ca, it is Patented and the serial # is 30004356. It is anodized a medium blue that has become lighter over the years. I paid more for the LED bulb a few years ago than I did for the entire flashlight lol

I have a couple Vari-Beams. They were an attempt by Mag-Lite in the '80s to market to auto garages and industrial suppliers. They wanted something that didn't look like a police light, as well as being easy to find in a dimly lit shop.
Several police light manufacturers thought a separate brand was needed to sell outside the police market. Kel-Like sold some lights under the Stud-Light brand to truckers, for instance.
Do something alone and it's weird, do it with others and it's a club.
There is a plated gold AA on eBay right now. I am not connected to the seller.
I have a great little mini-maglight, boxed with a matching swiss army knife, from the 1996 Atlanta olympics. It's mirror finished, with the British Olympic Team logo on it.
Very nice! Good thing the alky didn't ruin the light...too bad about the box though.
I've got a 5 D cell Red anoded that I got from a SnapOn Dealer in the 80's...is that a rare Mag
Has anybody seen the 2AA mini mag with American flag ano?
Anyone ever seen a Presidential MAGLITE off of airforce one. Would like to get my hands on one and what do u think i should pay IF i can find one.
Don't want to stop anyone's heart, but there's a red 7D on the 'bay (US) right now. (I've never seen a red one!) Search "RARE VINTAGE 7 D CELL". Ends March 25th. Already high$$$
(Not mine, nor do I have any connection with the seller.)
