Default Nite Ize Flex Light Adapter for Mini Mag Light

This little gadget works great for inspecting bores and many other plumbing and auto related purposes too. I bought it many years ago at either Lowe's or Home Depot IIRC. I keep this one in my gun vault, but wanted another for my tool roll a way. Can't find it anywhere.

If anyone sees or finds this adapter, please let me know and everyone else too. I recommend it for every rifle owner.

That might be possible. The center core is of some other type material that transfers the light thru the black coating. That's something to think about though for certain.

I could probably make one of those with the spare tubing at work :P It seems simple enough.

Hmm, I don't think it's just black tubing. As the wouldn't deliver enough light out the end when it's bent. There's gotta be some type of clear flexible core to deliver the light to the tip.

fiber optics. if you dont need a lot of flexibility you can use acrylic rods shielded on the outside. it wont transfer as much, but it will definitely work.otherwise buy some fiber optic cable and make your own

No, black tubing alone won't do it. There is some kind of core within this black coating that transfers the light source.. About what this looks like is a piece of weedeater trimmer line covered with shrink tubing.

You'da man Jeffree !!!

I'm not dumb.. really. I did search after search, using Nite Ize, Flex light, light adapters, Mag light adapter, fiber optic flex Nite Ize and on and on and came up nothing. I figured they may have quit making them.

I'll be ordering another one, suggest everyone else does too. They come in handy for several different things other than gun bores.
