I recently picked up a Darrell Allen Bug Diver 400, which I thought was the correct light for Hooper's dive scene. Then I found this auction that says it is a Darrell Allen dive bright 500... Some auction houses are known to be wrong, so I'm hoping beyond hope that I didn't buy into the the wrong version. Anyone know for sure?

As I recall, the Darrell Allen Dive Bright was earlier, and had " Darrell Allen Dive Bright Belmont Calif" cast into the end of the body. There are later later ones with branding cast on the sides. There are bunch of Allen models, and I don't know what the size or internal differences are. While the 500 is hard to find, it's usually not that expensive, around $40-50.

If it's the same size, I suspect you could shave the logo off the side, and repaint, but the back still won't have the branding.

Could you post dimensions? I'll dig around and see if I can find my 500, though I haven't seen it in years.
