small bore light
« on: June 29, 2008, 11:36:07 PM »
I finally found a light that will work in small bores down thru .22 and smaller,it actually is a light for a fishing float.Instruction on the package says it will  last for 20 hrs. of continuous service,it is a "thill nite brite".I  tried it in my .32 cal Bedford and the bore showed up real nice.

OK now that you have my attention where did you find it and what is the price?

Dennis,

In my area you can find these at Walmart or KMart in the fishing supplies.

I got one from Flintlocks Inc. at the NMLRA spring shoot this year, it is a yellow light that shows the bore better than the red fishing light I have.  I paid about $3.50 for it I believe.
