Wow, fantastic collection! I’ve not worked right through the thread yet as I’m new here, but always loved an AA Mini Mag, and still use one I’ve had for 15+ years daily. I’ve just recently started to collect a few more, so may have to build something like the stand a couple of posts up, I’d certainly be interested in the dimensions if you can post them please! I’m currently on the hunt for a stamped bezel original AA Mini Mag but had no luck anywhere I’ve looked yet!

Can anyone help me with the color of this 1984 Mini Maglite I recently acquired? It looks either brown or like a wine color?

I love collecting these stamped (rolled) bezel1984 lights. Even though Maglite only made them for a year I've seen a surprising amount of finishes on them. Here are some for comparison. From top to bottom they are black, unknown (brown or wine), Zimmermann Bronze, Gold, Red.

I have some other finishes too like Blue and Dark Green. A pink went for over $100 on ebay last year but it was a little too steep for me.

I bought this black mini new back in '84.. Unfortunately I used it, back then, for porting M/C heads and my die grinder kissed it a few times around the bezel. Who would of thought (or cared) it would end up a one year only..

Liftd, I think this black is in better shape than yours, Pm me know if you can use another.

Hey, thanks so much! I'd love to add a good condition 84 model to my collection. I'll shoot you a PM.

I recently acquired a 1st generation black mini maglite. How to you remove the spare bulb cover below the spring? Mine looks like the spare bulb is missing and I'd like to confirm that.

It also came with a holster that I'm uncertain whether it is leather. On the back the lettering is gold and the snap is silver. I'll take a photo of the light and holster soon. I looked for images online but didn't see a similar one.

Grab the spring and pull, it pops out fairly easy.

You should be able to see tip of bulb when it is present without removing contact spring
