Should have been there from start :) – 52mm x 1.8mm Glass Lens Reviews

Pros:
A circular piece of glass which (hopefully) fits your M@g (see cons).
Thickness is perfect match to the original plastic one.
Very nice - makes the lens of your M@g very clear even though it's not of those high tech coated ones.
Cons:
Didn't quite fit my older 2D. I had to carefully grind the edge to take off a 1/10 mm or so. Don't know if it was because my 2D is pretty old (but starts with a D in serial number so it's not of the old type) or the glass was simply too large. Not a big deal though.
Glass breaks easier than plastic so you probably shouldn't use this if you're a fire fighter, police officer or similar on duty.
Other:
They should make this 2/10 mm smaller in diameter to ensure perfect fit with all M@g flashlights. A little gap on those with a little larger tolerance shouldn't be of any significance (the same as with the original plastic one).
Bottomline:
Buy it!
Upgrades the C and D M@g with a glass lens that should have been there from start.
