    Well...yes and no

    You could make a switch plate out of 2 pieces of very thin metal and a insulator, and put it between the spring and the - side of the back battery, but then you would have to drill a hole to pass 2 wires out of the back cap. Any way you go about it, you will probaby need to modify the mag light in a way that it may never be the same again

      Why do you want a light to let everyone know where you are?

          that or mount a laser pointer on the end of your paintball gun. then everyone can follow the little red dot! I did it with one of those laser pointer pens taped to the end of the barrel. heh.
