There are more than a few commercial 1xAAs that would meet your criteria; two notable examples being the Nitecore D10 (https://www.4sevens.com/product_inf...d=709&osCsid=f59585dafa0f23aa7bc3961105a220e7) and the JetBeam Jet I Pro (http://www.bugoutgearusa.com/jetipro.html). The Nitecore uses an infinitely variable brightness ramp, and the Jet uses a ramp plus three user settable modes. Both are specifically designed to accept 14500s, have excellent build quality, and are popular favorites at only ~$70 each.

The NiteCore Defender Infinity also meets that requirement.

On the AA front, the Fenix L1T v2.0 is a simple choice which performs stupendously on NiMH cells.

You might contact Fred (Photonphanatic) he does very nice custom stuff.
You can see some of his previous work here.

Photonfanatic doesn some pretty nice work with lights, you might want to look at that.

There are also many commercial lights that work too.

ARC mania still makes custom AA lights. He doesn't always sell them through CPF, but they occasionally show up second hand.
