What’s new:

3/4 Scale – 1″ Scale Headlight kit


With our cast Mini Headlight kit you can use the, bezel ring, reflector and “O” rings from your Mini Mag flashlight, to build a highly customizable headlight. Our kit comes threaded to accept your flashlight’s front end components and include 1 or 2 super bright LED’s that run on 3 volts. The casting comes with number boards which can be easily opened up to illuminate your numbers or completely filed off to make a smooth round headlight. The options are entirely up to your needs. Back plate is included.

Specifications: 1 inch in diameter x 1-1/4″ tall x 1-1/4″ from bezel front to back. $50.00 each + S&H.


3/4″ Scale Working Couplers.










We believe these to be the only working 3/4″ scale coupler sold in the U.S.A. (and maybe across the pond, too)

 The pattern was cut on a CNC mill to the published Mini Rail Coupler Standards. Then we use 3 checking gauges to assure all couplers are compatible with those standards. 

The only thing you have to do is drill your king pin hole. We will mill the shank to your pocket sizes at no extra charge.

Specification: Shank .580 Wide X .650 Tall X 2″ long.  $55.00 per pair +S&H
