    it's a $20 coleman from walmart. 90 lumens output,comes w red and blue lenses. I modified it using a pressure switch from an old laser sight I had on my .22cal. Lengthened the wires on the switch and,after drilling a hole in the tail cap,ran one wire to +,and one to - side of battery pak.then put a 5/16x24 bolt through the tailcap. The bracket is a 6" piece of 3/8"x1/8" of flatbar from home depot. The way I've gor it set-up in the pic,it balances beautifully at the shot. I sacrificed a sims S-coil to mount between the light and bracket. It's very quiet and works great.

    I've also got a 230 lumen ultrafire that will mount on a picatinny rail to go on my Athens. That one shines bright out to 100+ yards.

    Used to be able to hunt at night in Calif but no longer live there, Varmits only, and not during any big game season.

    You know I bought new batteries for my pin light last season, new flashlight and some other things I won't mention. I try to stay within the law, as long as I don't get caught. lol

    just for the record,im noy doing anything illegal w my bowlight. Strictly for hunting coon/possum at night on my personal property as pest control. Almost got sprayed by a skunk last year,but that's another story. These critters have destroyed storage sheds and other thing. The property was abandoned for a few years by my inlaws. And since the property sits across the rd from a 5K acre state park,it became a safe have for them. Not so safe now!
