Default Can I buy just a bulb for my Maglight?

I hope this is the appropriate section to post this. I have a 2Dcell maglight. And the light wasn't burning it's brightest, so I replaced the batteries tonight. Well It's still shining dull. I think it's the bulb. It was my Grandfathers light and he gave it to me. So does anyone know of a place that just sells bulbs for the maglights? Also! is it possible to get a led light conversion kit for them? Thanks!

Hardware stores should have bulbs, you can replace the clear lens with a red one and they can be found at military surplus stores

A bulb is either good or bad, not in between, no?
Are the contacts clean and tight, on the switch too, everything assembled snug?
