The time will come that smaller fixed head torches will do the job and I have oodles of aspherics for them. lolsunndog wrote:some bloke wrote:Wow, Mingle Mangle mingle mangle (for those old enough to have seen the 'twilight zone short films) - could now be the time.....
I got the impression a few years ago that NM800 pills were very similar to the old 501b pills - and I in fact used some lower current, lower nm IR led's in some of them too - but didn't feel I could buck the trend with non Oslon Black 4715S LED's at that time. The 4715AS LED almost prompted me to prime someone up to making them available for rimfire range use.
So.... is it feasible Ruby might fit in the old super compact 16mm star board 501b that has no zoom, a wider focused beam that fills the viewing screen without a tunnel effect and absolutely no floppy head that often needs adjustable mountings?
Could this be the time to set aside zoom torches for 30mm aspheric lensed 501b's or alternatives to reawaken? And no - I don't wish to resume making any myself.
Dave's love affair with the 501b still as strong as it ever was
When a ma, an loves a flash, light
But this new pill is less covert dave.......its less covert!!!
when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers
