It was a custom job. Maker said that after mine, a minimum order would be 10 sets because it was so hard. He would not go through that much trouble again for just one set.

td, you need a :whoopin::crackup:

I just checked and it's crazy how much people are charging for the *regular* colors! It's almost cheaper to go down to my local hardware store. Anywhoo, I'll have to keep watch on some of those.

IN part one, it was mentioned that there may be another camo color scheme. anyone with a pic? also i need a dark green, if someone could save me the time of going through all the post's on part one, off the top of your head, anyone know a dealer that sell's them reasonably priced?

I don't really want all the rare ones, just sorta the "small crayola poor kid box o'crayon's" primary color's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hahaha.gif but the dark green my first colored one after the black mag i got when they came out, quit working
year's ago, and I would love to have another! VDG

IIRC, td concluded the "other" camo color scheme was product of a bad pic.

I just got a dark green at the loca ACE hardware.

dark green...... have you tried action lights?

they have a LOT of defunct colors

and their prices of $17 ARE reasonable for out of production colors

Here's a pic of my camo MM. The pattern is different from the one you normally see.

Interesting. The camo one I'm talking about seemed to have yellowish tint instead of the gray. For the life of me I can't find the link and can't remember if it was on BST or eBay or where...

Could the Mini-Mag been in the (at one time) very popular Desert Camo?

This is the page of camo patterns

I searched for MagLite Desert Camo and found nothing though...

Is this an actual normal color for the Mini-Mag?

MiniMagColorYL.jpg

Edit - photo change with better representation of color

This photo shown next to a standard Blue (color code 11) - doesn't really show/reveal the "true" color - all my trial photos seem to show it a bit more blue, and deeper color than it actually is. Also under different lighting it can show all the way from a blue to purple. The best description is - it is a pale blue'ish purple - almost tending toward lilac - it is similar to the purple/violet in Roy's photo (7th from left - top row) in the opening post.

It is different from the standard Purple (color code 98) that I see often, which is definitely much deeper in color (closer to Turbodog's photo in the 2nd post - row 2 - 7th from left) -
This one seems almost to show more of the silver color underneath and is definitely distinctly paler.

The photo of the head bezel/surround although much smaller in area seems to shows the color a bit better.

Please bear with me - I know this is all very "retentive" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif - but this particular MiniMag color has interested me for quite awhile - I probably bought the MiniMag some 5 or 6 years ago from a local Wal-Mart and picked it because it didn't look like the other purple or blues on display.

Unfortunately I didn't keep the packaging or note the color code.

I've always just assumed it was just a simple manufacturing variation/anomoly, but haven't seen any since -
but since we have real collectors here, I thought I'd at least ask....

thanks,
