Great little light! Good build quality. AA battery. Very bright! I have a minimag and this light basically kills it. It comes with a useful strap. Nice textured body. Zooming works well with a tweak. All metal, switch too. Threads are clean. O-rings (not water-proof though) Flood is a bit narrow. Looks like 30 degrees. Throw is very tight maybe 2 degrees.
Looses about 30-40% of total brightness when in “throw” mode. Can’t tail stand. Can head stand (useless?) but don’t. There is maybe a half mm clearance between the lens and the table. Switch feels cheap, like a pen, but is metal. Didn’t work at first but now its fine. Guess you need to break it in. Not water-proof. (Lens isn’t sealed well) Sucks 1.3-1.4 amps from the battery.
How to improve head zoom: Open up the head (very thin seam in the middle) Unscrew the silver colored light and driver unit. Remove bottom half of the head. Remove metal ring that was hiding. Replace with black o-ring that’s on the light unit. Lube it with a very small amount of vaseline. Put every thing back together. All done!
Great cheap light! The perfect replacement for you minimag! Uses AA battery, and zooms. Looks easy to mod. Get one!
