I'm surprised this thread isn't a sticky, honestly. I come back to it all the time for ideas for my next build. It's a great reference.

See like I said, Norm is one of the cool guys and not only knows about these type of things but had it covered before we even thought about it. :thumbsup:

Excellent. Now respond to the PM I sent you a few weeks ago :p

Wow. I think I love this forum. Just skimming through this thread has me smiling. I have to return later and look stuff up so I know what to get for our old Maglites. Some of those pics show a lot of light - just the thing for outdoors at night. :thumbsup:

If you can get your hands on the right parts. Which can be a little difficult these days but not impossible. You can do a LOT with old Mag hosts, especially D-cell size. Mag mods comprise the bulk of my collection.

Are there still LED modifications available through vendors for the Maglite D cell flashlights?

You will get better result if you Google search (top left of this page) for 3XML M*g C & D drop in by Fivemega or any other drop in M*g which are available in CPF's Custom & Modified Flashlights - Buy/Sell/Trade

Yea, too bad there is nothing to resurrect it with, there have not been any advances in hotwire Maglite in a last decade or so. IIRC the most powerful was a 250W 24v bipin driven by 7 26500 cells, in a 6d body. i have not seen anything brighter as far as mag mods go
