Tiny flashlight?

I was at a show and a guy let me borrow a tiny little flashlight. It was so small it could fit down a 22 barrel.
It is so small that you can drop it from the muzzle and not have to open the bolt to check the bore. I would be happy with something small enough to drop down a 30 cal though. Anyone see something that small to drop down a 22?

Look for a Black Powder bore light. They drop right into the barrel. I think you can find them for a 30cal.

Here is the one I own.

Good Luck!

I have an old Streamlight Stylus. It will fit my .308 barrel.

I google checked and found they make a new one that is just as small in diameter but longer.

These are single use but the smallest I know of. More of a third string redundant last ditch back up but neat. https://www.facebook.com/MBI.MatchBoxInstruments/ the magnetic base would prevent it's travel through a bore, so small but not application appropriate.

The way the guy turned it on you may have hit it here. His was green.
I think it had to have been something for use normally as something other than a flashlight.

So Gordon had nailed it.
I ordered one from Amazon and It came in and it is awesome.
Small enough to drop into a 22. Just push on the green tip to turn on and pull to turn off. Essentially 6 in a package. This is great for both muzzleloader or say quickly inspecting that gun show purchase on the strapped down bolt.
It was so bright that I took a black sharpie to it to dim it some. Pic is of it dropped into my Marlin 22 rifle
