Does a deeper 17mm reflector exist?

I was wondering whether there was a reflector of the same size, but deeper, of the SO17XA available. I noticed that you can use an optic or reflector of very long length in the Mini M@g when you unscrew it further and further. I love throw in a small package which is why I am looking for a deeper 17 mm reflector.

You can use the IMS20 reflector in a minimag. I just installed one last night and it is a large improvement over the IMS17. It takes some work to get it in, but it is worth it. You have to sand down the diameter at the top to fit. It is easiest to do with a dremel and takes about 30 minutes of careful sanding and fitting. There are many threads on how to do it.

The 20mm is deeper and of course wider. It is deeper than the stock reflector so the head does not screw on as far. It completely fills the head of the minimag. The reflector gives a better hotspot with nice sidespill and better throw.
