Cheaper alternative to Peak Eiger Ultra X?

I have a Peak Eiger Ultra and I love this light. But as some configuration picks that I made were wrong, I’m looking to get another.
Nevertheless I find $75 (that’s what I paid for the previous one) for such a simple light shipped to me to be extreme. Communication problems that I’m having (over 2 weeks waiting for a reply and counting) discourage me further. So I’m looking for alternatives. Weirdly, I can’t find a single cheap flashlight that would be DD/QTC (I’m not interested in any other drive method really).
I thought about having a custom, but that’s even more expensive. I found a couple of similar US-made lights, but they are more expensive too.
Am I missing something?
Would it be hard to have another flashlight modded with QTC?

If it’s only AAA battery or Ni-Mh so take a look to Manker E02. Awesome flashlight!

It may be a fine light, but very different from what I’m looking for.
1. 220 lm doesn’t make it. Pure direct drive XP-L W2 would do 1200 lm at the emitter. QTC will dim it somewhat, but I still expect 800+ OTF with a dedomed emitter.
2. I love QTC UI. With smooth output regulation I can easily have as much light as I need. Never too bright, never too dim, never overly power-hungry.
