    The 75th anniverssary WW2 Veterans Commitee minimag arrived and it is nice.


    Shown outside the box.
    Came in a regular gift box in a nice matte olive drab color with a matte black tailcap.


    I was really impressed with the etching on the front end. Great detail not seen in the shrunken res photo.
    I hope they release other lights this color.

    Very nice!! Score a T Shirt too?? I love the matte (stealth) finishes. I wish Maglite would have done them more on their full size lights.

    Very nice indeed.

    They had a 30% off coupon for the light, which was about the same price as the t-shirt, so yeah I threw that in the cart too.

    Scored an old police wide-body 4D Mag from the 90's. The 'bay listing says it was in a wrecked police car. I had one just like it, but it succumbed to leaky alkalines and I didn't have the patience of knowledge to clean it out way back then. I've always been on the lookout for another and this had all the attributes I wanted and plenty of street-character. Very happy with the score. When I asked the seller if it had the animal-head on the bezel, she said "I'm sorry it doesn't." and I was like "WOOHOO! No sorry necessary!" I bought my original 4D around 1991 and a friend bought his 3D in 1993 and we were weirded out that the barrel thickness had stepped down. I always wanted one of the original thick body lights again.

    Then you would love my oldest mag. It's a 2d from approx 1985. Well used till about 2005 give or take. Bottom part of head is worn to silver due to sliding around on garage floors.
    This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.
    Be prepared for the truth.

    My old sprinkler pipe 4D from the mid 80's:




    used it heavily for about 20 years and it is still in use today loaded with soshine NiMH D cells and running a LED drop-in. Weighs a ton and feels like grabbing the wrong end of a baseball bat, but it has never failed me in spite of leaking alkaline batteries attempts to do it in.
