Anyone know where to get a D-Cell tube that accepts C-cells?

I want to put some of AW's Lithium C cells (1" OD) into a D cell Maglite which has an ID of about 1.34" and trying to find a tube that let me fit the C cells into a D Maglite.

McMaster-Carr has some that are close, but not perfect.

Thanks

I bought some rubber tubing at the local TrueValve hardware store for my 26650 size cells. I had to put a slit down the length of the tube for them to fit inside. But the outside diameter is perfect. The AW cells I believe are a little smaller in diameter so they may fit without slitting. A very inexpensive solution.

I'm trying to set something up that uses other parts only available in D size is why I'm not using a C Maglite. OK, off to the hardware store for some PVC. Thanks again.
