I’d like a brown or maybe a blue one.
It looks like a nice light.

21 more needed to make the GB price. It's a good price on a discontinued penlight.

I’ll take a red one or any color if they run out of red.

Hey Old,

I’m sorry what i mean is 1 blue and 1 brown each, not 2… If you can please change that for me, thanks in advance.

Hi OL,

I would like one, Im not fussed about the colour red blue or brown for me Smile

Just out of curiosity, do you know if the bezel can be easily removed for an led swap, or is it heavily glued?

Thank you.

its heavily glued on the steel bezel and head, im not sure if using a pliers might help but then you might scratch off the coating easily

On mine the whole head unscrews readily but the bezel is small, narrow and seems to be very tight or glued. Narrow enough bezel protrusion so very hard to get a grip on it with a tool.

I bet yours is black one right? Because two of mine, brown and red’s head just wont unscrew at all, but my black version does

Thanks OL for this pretty nice group buy. I would also like to know if there is a faint possibility that the led can be swapped, anyone managed to do that without visible damage? Still, I would like one.

Oh, and on the gearbest site black is not listed as sold out, so despite the OP for me it would be black if possible Innocent 

EDIT: (if black is really is not possible, I go for red)

Below is a link to the very thorough posted review of the Four Sevens version of this light for those interested.

Put me down for 1, recently picked up one for my wife to use at work and it’s really nice, I put a nicia 219 in it (bezel WAS glued on it) but I’d really like to convert one to single mode (about 3-500mA) to run on standard alkalines and give it to grandma, she’s been asking for a light built by me but at 90 she can’t handle new batteries (even NiMH) or multi-modes.

Hi OL, I edited my post (#42), I really would like black even though that is not an option Undecided, or else I would like a red one.

I will ask. Probably won't get an answer till Monday night in the wee hours. I would doubt it, due to the price, but you never know.

Originally, 4Sevens planned to make replacement heads available to facilitate swapping tints and output bins. I guess that never happened and isn’t going to.

My wife’s blue 4Sevens model has a nice tint, is surprisingly bright, and has impressed many of her fellow nurses and doctors. Smile

FYI

Quoted via e-mail from Dora;

I think we should hurry for the gb, I just contact with olight, they replied that the stock is very limited and this light will be out of production Sad
 
Now the stock is:
 
black: none and out of production
red: 27 pcs
brown: 131 pcs
blue: 150 pcs

Really? That's two plugs for your light here, in the Wrong Thread.

Just say the word and I’ll delete my first “plug”, but my second post is just to get a real response from Cereal_killer. Because when a well known member asks me to PM him some details and I do, multiple times over some weeks while getting no response except one “This is the first PM I’ve gotten from you ever, I just checked back several pages, I’m sorry. What can I do for you?” and then silence again… Well, I’m looking for any opportunity to get to the bottom of this.

I do not totally disagree, but this thread is not the place to do it. If you cannot get an answer via PM, then he does not want to discuss it. Let it go. Pretty simple, he probably wants one for $26 instead of $35. That seems blunt, but that is probably why. If he did not sign anything, then he's under no obligation here. Gentleman's agreements only work for gentlemen and there's very few of them left any more. I'm not what I would call a gentleman either, so as hard as it is, you might just want to drop it.

Tried to resist, but it was futile as I know I would regret not grabbing one. Please put me down for a blue. Thanks Old-Lumens!

It’s not about selling the light anymore, it’s about getting an answer. A short and simple “No” would suffice. It’s really strange to get nothing at all. And unless he could see the future he couldn’t have wanted it for $26 when this feeler was a month from starting. Anyway, I got word I’m not the only one having this problem, so my quest is over.
Do you want me to delete the post? You didn’t say explicitly… Oh well, I’ll delete it anyway.
