Default Re: Old torches - anyone here collect them?

My two-AA camo Maglite does the twist-to-turn-on/off-and-focus thing, whereas the 4-D-cell one (now LEDized) has the twist-to-focus but a waterproof rubber push-button on the barrel for on/off. It's my flashlight-of-choice for late night dog-walking in the woods.

Maglite construction is definitely 'built to last' with rubber sealing O-rings for the battery-access stopper and the focus assembly. I'm careful what batteries I use in them though - don't want any Duracells going leaky in there!
