The bi-pin adapters do work. I have them on older and newer Mags. Try again at a later time and confirm.Some goodies for the 3c build and I threw in the aaa minimag with the order. Sleek little light, I like it.

I got the 6 cell bulbs to try with 2x li-ions. They work nicely, but the bi pin adapter doesn’t seem to seat as far in as the krypton bulbs, so it can’t focus the beam as well. This beamshot is the max focus I can get. Is that normal with these adapters?

One of my favorite lightsNot long ago Maglite had 2C and 3C incan's in the clearance section. There's no clearance section there today. But I bought a 2C there summer of 22 for $12.
Heck, even zbattery doesn't show incan C cell Maglites aside from the ML25. I struck out at Amazon too. It's like they all just disappeared one day.
4C? You can find those all over the place.
A fun, reversable mod is get 1" pvc schedule 80 pipe for a gap filler, 2 18650 batteries and a 6 cell bulb for a nice incan thrower. About 175 or so lumens. It's like a 7C in a smaller package.
This is a truly fantastic bulb. It throws such a tight beam. It’s even better in one of those mag 25it twist head 2c lights running 2x18500 or 3x cr123a in a sleeve. I bought five of them and the 1st is still runningThe bi-pin adapters do work. I have them on older and newer Mags. Try again at a later time and confirm.
I do like running the 6 cell bi-pin bulbs, though I prefer the two PR based bulbs I was able to score a few years back.
My favorite though is the Mag bi-pin adapter running a Tad Customs 7212 bulb. It's nice.
It is a 7212 bulb originally for the Surefire M3 drop-in socket, but it worked on the Mag bi-pin holder. I thought it would not work due to shorter bi-pins, but it did end up working.
Cool 🔦 set up with a KD OP reflector.
My latest acquisition was this very nice, like new C3 Centurion with that special tailstanding cap. With the standard P90 LA, which I will definitely not change. That beam is SOOO nice
I was at the ace hardware today and was surprised to see they had quite a few krypton bulbs. No 6 cell unfortunately so I bought a pack of 3 cell to try out. Never used krypton bulbs before, at least not since I learned that there are different kinds of bulbs.
