The code can only be used for 20 times.

20 times per person or 20 times total for all orders?

I think it means total of 20 times. I am not familiar with the setting so far.

Is there any issue in the whole process?


Yes, I sent you a PM, I can’t make a purchase currently through the website.

Thank you. I want to be sure that I am following the process correctly by not ordering more than I am supposed to. Example: My first 2 of 7 reservations are 1596 and 1597
I have already ordered 1596. Is the next code for my second reservation going to be for only 1597 and then I will wait until the 3rd round for reservations 2101, 2102 & 2103? And then wait for the fourth round for reservations 2926 & 2927?

Plenty of patience on my end just would like to know how it will proceed.

Not sure if this was mentioned but it looks like you can buy a colored version of the LT1 on the updated Sofirn website. It’s listed as several prototypes from batch one for $100. Not my colors or price so I’ll wait but thought I should pass it on.

LT1 prototype – Green/Gold

Interesting. I wonder if these are these using the coloring that didn’t meet environmental standards as previously mentioned by Sofirn…

I like that green! Too bad Sofirn hasn’t shipped the first light I ordered from Amazon 3 weeks ago. No way I’m giving them any more money until they send me what I already paid for.

I like the green.
But paying a USD 30:- premium over the black is way too steep for me.

You can order all this time with one code. Don’t need to wait.

FYI while that green on the above LT1 sample is the wrong green we were looking to have close to a Coleman color i agree, (they were test color models) that we were looking to get, there is, and never was, a single “Coleman Green” I guess you only have the one lantern and one green? I have probably 85+ GPA lanterns in my collection, and probably about 60 different Colemans from 1921 up until the last fuel model they produced, and most of the various greens below. Coleman used every shade of green from extremely dark forest (almost black) green, to Seafoam green, Phitalo Green, various other Pantone greens, and the most common one they used on their most popular through the 80’s 90’s, 2000’s, 335, 321, 222, Easilite, the 356~357 Pantone greens was used. (same color on many of their 421, 430, 505, 502, etc. stoves as well.) (the Easi-lite 222 Coleman lantern in the bottom row, far right of the below photo is 357 Pantone green.

I dont think my statement was argumentative or unclear …. as I said “I prefer the #574 Olive Drab Green ….. its closer to the color of my ‘Colemans’”
that is….. if you are going to use the colors you used in the poll…… but if it makes you feel any better all of my Colemans are the same color.
I have several but Im not a ‘Collector’ Beer
The only way I would have that many coleman’s is if I found a box of em somewhere
Hopefully when I get the LT1s (whatever color) I wont even need my Colemans anymore…
Im tired of toting fuel and changing mantles,
Although it would be nice to look up and see an Dark Green LT1 and be able to remember all the good times Ive had with the Colemans.

I’m planning on a strip-down and repaint when my first LT1 arrives. You have me thinking that a photo documented ‘how to’ might be worth the effort.

Hmmm… I wonder what flavors of Green I can get Krylon in.

I seen a camo anodized flashlight somewhere.. but can’t remember where. That would be the most difficult color pattern i’m guessing. If only Real-tree Camo was possible.. Big Smile

Wait, we can order all our remaining lights once we receive the second code? Is that what that comment means?
