I notice the JM20 is up for $35 as a GB, it was offered at $28 as a GB days before the site went down. At that time, $38 was the everyday low price, and RRP listed as the $58 showing still.

Edit: Now its $42.

Its working for me. Although it looks incomplete with blank spaces that are clearly meant ot have products in them.

I just bought a light from FancyFlashlights not knowing that it’s run by Ric and CNQ. Considering CNQG has been MIA for weeks now, is Fancy going the same route ?

Might be some errors on CNQ.

Stainless steel pocket clip for DQG AAA is now $5. Flat Stare
“Market price:$5, Shop price:$5” All other prices are lower then the “market price”.

Looks like a long way to go. I see that drop-downs also have not been done for items such as the AR lenses.

The site appears to be no more related to lightinthebox than it does to Macy’s. It’s clearly a 100% mess right now.

I hope not. FF was out of action for a couple of months apparently for an overhaul which Ric mentioned. Its only been back up for a couple of weeks.

Dammit, wish I knew before I ordered! If they’re indeed MIA i really don’t want to wait for the mandatory period for a paypal claim.

Not anymore it doesnt. He must have used the site design as a template. Maybe he ‘borrowed’ it, then again, he might own/operate that site too.

I placed an order on 15-Apr-2014 and it arrived on 10-Jun-2014 – 56 days after ordering and paying.

I’m still in discussions with Ric because of problems with the order after it arrived – the light I received has a different design to the light that I ordered.

9 weeks after paying and there are still unresolved issues. Very disappointing.

It won’t let me select a shipping method.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

I just had that same problem for 2 days at Fasttech; emailed support, no reply, but the next day the cart was zero’d out and starting over it would allow shipping.

I tried to order a BTU. It wouldn’t let me select a shipping type. I emailed Ric and he got right back to me. He reset my password, and sent me the new one. Everything worked smoothly after that. My order was accepted and shipped w/tracking immediately.

My old password signed me in OK, things just got hinky trying to checkout.

It looks like he's spent some time working on CNQG.  Just a couple days ago the site wouldn't load many of the product pictures, but a quick check shows that that's all fixed.  I'm liking the direction the new DQG 26650 is going with possibly 5 or 7 emitters.  I still hope for a true firefly mode.  That price isn't very attractive though.  

The low mode should be lower.

The Black shadow (apparently its just Shadow) JM20 was $38 ($36 maybe) for months, then offered as a weekly special for maybe 2 days at $28 just before the site went down. When the site came back it was at $42 but now its $35.

However, free shipping …lol.

I note the category drop down menus dont seem to be functioning for me (firefox). Nor the selections either. I just clicked the Blackshadow menu, and got Solarstorm and Skyrays. No JM20, I needed to search for it. Its till a work in progress.

Went back and found some missing pictures.  It's much better than it was though.  FF is still in bad shape.

The low mode should be lower.

I think people concerned about dealings with him should take notice and see he likely isnt ignoring them. The site upgrade takes time too, so its not just them. He likely has little spare time IMO.

+1 and hold < 2 seconds to turn off.

I have complained a couple of time about his lack of reaction, so in all fairness I have to update.
After several weeks of trying to get contact I finally got a response a couple of days ago after I had posted in another topic here and send him a message again.

This time he reacted quick and with a good solution and compensation.
If the solution comes through I take back my word about him trying to scam me.
It still is bad that it had to take almost 2 months before he responded, but at least a late and good response is better than a quick and bad one.

I got the last BTU Shocker host. When I ordered, Ric said it was sold out, but he would try to find me one.
Shocker shipped, and now site says “sold out”

Maybe I know something about that host?

I'm not sure I can as the tracking is not working. If it was not me it was someone else. Theres been a few run out lights from different shops lately.

My tracking is working.
China Post won’t track. I track it with Canada Post.
Did you try tracking yours with Aussie Post?
