Are you a CPF'er?
Thanks! And, yes, to both questions.

People collect lots of stuff you'd never really think of.

This is *my* definition. I am amazed at some of the things I've read there.

Your definition is pretty much spot on. I rarely frequent that forum anymore. It was a hobby that got way too expensive, way too fast (I still have most of the lights). Although I guess I could say the same thing about my Ranger.

I’ve had mine for years and the outer body is in good shape; I am going to try the new ion bulbs to see if the output is any better than the older Krypton but we will see.
I ordered new o-rings and switch seal and a glass breaker end and when they come in I will rebuild the old guy.

Now if someone could just figure out I can do that to myself…

Just a note to all, if you are thinking of buying the Glass Breaker end get this one, ESD Products XcapeCap BLACK Maglite Tail Cap for D-Cell and Rechargeable $23.99 - Buy Discount Maglight at Maglite Sales; it has a hardened tip and will wear better if not at all.

See KLC’ s Post, XCapeCap Glass-Breaker Tailcaps and Custom Bezels. Special New Year Promotion. - CPFMarketPlace.

Remember the tip is the important part…

Also, I have a few of the XcapeCap tail-caps in stock now in Black, Silver and Red - as well as Black D-cell Talons (Facecaps/Bezels). Here's a link.
