Swapped out all of mine for the 4B32 Xenon equivalent, which put an
end to flash-over/arcing issues. 3B28s do the same for the troublesome
866. I've got at least a case and probably more of NOS mil surplus
872s and 866s that will eventually find new homes as a result.

Though not as bright, the xenon tubes do have a nice glow when activated.
