I am searching for MV jewel lenses to replicate ditch lights but I cannot find any suppliers. Walthers is out of stock on almost all MV products. Any ideas as to where to find them?

You can use them if you peel off the silver backing on therear of the lens. Use a very sharp X-acto knife and slowly start to peel away the backing. Once you get it started use some pliers to finish the job.
