    Glad to have you here. A suggestion. Read..read..read. Spend awhile just reading these forums and get a feel for the lingo and whats what. Then you can proceed with modifying. After that you might think about building your own light but not before. Although not rocket science its not easy either.

    Welcome to CPF, brennemanj83!

    I'll move your thread into the Homemade & Modified section, where you will find other "build-your-own" threads and members discussing how to do it.
    Resistance is futile...

    Maybe you don't have to build one at first. For what you want to do(red output and far throwing) maybe a P60 accepting light with a Red LED drop-in could work.

    Some are good some are junk. Try using the search function to see if anyone has reviewed one of the ones you are thinking about. You can modify just about anything to have a red led so don't worry too much about that.
