    Very nice!! I'm digging them. Did you see Mag has a few 3D LED gold lights for sale too? I hear they are leftovers from a run of lights intended to be giveaways. The price is the same as the regular 3D LEDs.

    I did but on a friend's (full size) lathe. Mine is too small for making the threads because the hole in the chuck is too small to hold the Maglite tube.

    Thanks Mr. Fixer. I had been watching for them and hadn’t checked in a week or two. Kind of disappointed I lost all this weight to do some more St. Jude fundraising races and they will probably all be canceled. The only people I donate to.

    It would be cool if Mag had a collector's club that offered limited runs of lights with special colors, features, markings, serials etc.

    I agree!! I've suggested it to them before but didn't get a response. A lot of high end manufacturers do this. It costs them almost nothing to tweak the lights slightly and they could get a very high premium for them and it would certainly generate more interest in their product. How hard would it be to make a few ML300 Vari-Beams? They already come in blue and silver and they could easily laser etch a different bezel. $100 and they'd sell like crazy. Same for a few 7D ML300s. 7Ds sell for $300 regularly so the market is there.

    It might not be so simple. They would have to find someone to coordinate the program, take pictures and upload them to their site etc. But I would think that a ML300 vari-beam would be doable. A 7D ML300 would require expensive tooling changes to make the barrels and probably changes to the electronics to accommodate the higher Voltage.


    I was thinking they could do limited runs of different lights in a special color each year and mark them with the year and maybe their own serial number ranges. And some limited runs with warm white high CRI LEDs or high intensity LEDs for greater throw.

    Very cool fidusinski. Very nice find(s).




    Seven cell light? $300? I don't see that one happening. Or Vari-Beam as both did not sell well back when Maglite products were selling faster than ice melts in the summer desert. It would be nice though.

    With everything going rechargeable it would be nifty if the members of Maglite nation were offered some products being tried out before going to market. A rechargeable minimag (as a hypothetical) in a color only the initial batches came in for example and if it does well in trials the production line be regular colors available.

    I'd like to see spectrum warm ML25, 2 cell ML50 and 3 cell ML300 as throwbacks to the originals.

    Speaking of throwbacks, I almost forgot that they have released a Popular Mechanics again this year. The 4D ML300.

    Here's a review

    This is what is left from the collection (apart from some 3d green/orange). Unfortunately I had never the chance to get the third nascar maglite

    That is very cool. I especially like your C cells!! I've always wondered if all the red C cells went to Europe because I've never seen any for sale in the US. Does it have the Marlborough logo on it? I also really like your gold 2C and Blue 3C too!!

    Is that a 7C on top?

    Speaking of European lights a reader of my blog recently e-mailed me with this ad:


    The lights are similar to the Cabela's lights in that they had the logo of another company stamped into the bezel in this case "Assault Systems". Assault Systems was based in Missouri but they supposedly imported Maglites into Europe in 1980 when Maglite still used dealers instead of handling distribution themselves. According to the e-mail I got they were actually anodized olive drab with matching lanyard ring end caps and came in 2D, 3D and 4D. In all my years of collecting I've never seen them or heard of them before but I am wondering if any of the European user here may have?

    Olive drab incandescent Maglites? They could shut up and take my money! I just bought a second old-style military camouflage 3D new from Amazon because I like them so much.

    I have picked up the colored C-Mags at eBay Germany some years ago.

    The red one has the Marlboro logo and the black one is a 6c.

    Love C-cell Maglites. But yeah, not much variety here in America.

    Left from the Orange 3D is a Copper 4D I think but which is the color of the light at the right of the Orange 3D? I'm wondering if it's copper or pewter because I've never seen a Copper 3D?

    They are definitely copper.

    another bunch of rare Orange and Lime Green 3D's .

    The S3C096C's are Gray for our American friends and Grey for us.
    The purple 2C's are also hard to come by now. Especially in the original packaging.

    Awesome!! That is one heck of a collection!! Did you buy them all new and just hold onto them for all these years. Many folks probably like the orange lights the best but I really like those 3C greys. The 3Cs weren't popular so they're super hard to find in different finishes!
