    The link to the pic above doesn't work anymore as few of you already figured out a couple of years ago - but luckily the web archive still has it.

    +1 on this. The bulbs can stand being overdriven by one cell only. So a six-cell bulb will do nicely. Just make sure you keep a spare in the tailcap.

    The head and switch look like it's a Kel Lite.

    7D Mag-right. The other two are 6D-one old style, one new.

    That's a standard C-cell Kel-Lite. The tailcap is called the "Judo Head" and is styled after the yawara stick the company also made.

    Mag-Lite started making flashlights around 1979. The first year or two are different from the later ones we're familiar with, but it's just minor details in the switch. I have a 7D Mag-Lite from the mid '80s. Other than being 2.5" longer than a 6D there's no difference.

    Edit: I think it's time my infamous leather sofa make its reappearance. Here's a collection of extra-long police flashlights, with an early Surefire E1 for scale. From the top:

    5/12C Kel-Lite BTL-26
    5/10C Kel-Lite BTL-22
    7C Streamlight with built-in hippy adjuster
    7C Kel-Lite with Judo Head
    7D Mag-Lite
    7D B-Lite
    7D Kel-Lite
    7D Tru-Grit

    I was just reposting the picture of post #4 by holtz58. Yeah, there were already people back in 2003 who thought it was a Kel-lite. Sure looks like one Abtomat posted.

    I have 1 7D cell bulb.

    Found it in a drawer. Not the prettiest beam but it's bright.

    ABTOMAT,

    What color is your 7D? Looks dark blue. I have a 7D but it is Electric Blue.

    PS I'm new to this Forum, How do you post pictures? I don't see a link to post photos.

    You may have to open a hosting account like "photobucket". Is your blue 7D a Maglite? If you can't post your pictures, email them to me and I'll do it. I have to see this.

    I sent you a photo of it to your e-mail account.

    My 7D Mag-Lite should be black, but in the right light it has a blue cast.

    I have a 7D Kel. That thing is really a beast. My dad used it to crack a couple heads in LE instances. But, I guess, that was way back when the enforcers packed only 6 rounds on the hip and didn't carry tasers.
