Build your 66mm crealent collimator torch for £60 with oslon

Post by the crow » 12 Mar 2013, 15:12

Here is a parts list + price for crealent aspherical zoom 66mm torch running off a single 18650 battery or 12volt it cost about £60 to built these. I don’t use a collimator head (66mm) for airgun ranges I just use the UF-T20 torch.You will need some ptfe tape to put on the torch threads.
Big thanks to sunndog for posting his findings.
