    Messed up my mag switch :(

    Grr, I had taken the switch out of my mag 2D. Well, it came apart, and I was trying to get the thin metal strip back in the stem of the switch assembly. Well, it broke. Grr. I was going to play with a new mod too! I was going to have around 500 lumens from it, but now I cannot since I have no...

    Kroll G2 adapter

    Hey Don, still have any of these? I still have the one I bought from you, but I am in need of a few more (4 maybe). One for me, some for friends.

    Possible mr16 socket that will fit in a mag Anybody use these? They are only 5/8" diameter, which would fit in a mag head. The other sockets I had found for cheap were too long to fit in, but these should be great for those of us who want 1000 lumens in a 2D...

    Quick Surefire 123 voltage drop question

    What is the voltage of a surefire 123 cell at 3 amps? Just curious....wondering if I can put a 35 watt MR16 in this 4AA double barrel with 6 123's and run it....I know I could do a 20 watt that would be slightly overdriven. That would probably be the best route I suppose. Not even sure the mr16...

Four would be awesome as I could use 4 1000 mAh 123 size cells for pretty much the same performance, except MAYBE lower runtime. If somebody could, tell me the length of the tube so I...
