Some unhappy news to report. Niwalker has demanded the end to this group buy. While the “See Price in Cart” model of MAP compliance is a widely accepted practice it is Niwalker’s assertion that I have violated their MAP policy by publicly providing a coupon code directly related to one of their products. While no pricing or discount information was conveyed or advertised in the listing their USA dealers and International Distributor were unhappy with the GB and complained to Niwalker.
MAP is Minimum Advertised Price. This listing never advertised price. Be that as it may, Niwalker refused to fill any orders related to this campaign so it must end.

While this light is supposed to be great stock, Vinh is likely to thoroughly upgrade it. I would also suggest a dedome... :D
I'm also tempted to get the XML2 version and getting it modded, given this statement from Selfbuilt;
"In terms of throw, the BK-FA01 is my 3x/4x 18650 leader at the moment. Although I don't have the TN31 XM-L2 on hand to compare, I doubt it could beat it (based on the performance of my XM-L version). The larger reflector of the BK-series will likely give a consistent edge to this build, for equivalent drive level."
I would agree except that it should be noted that the niwalker mtg2 offers a “direct drive” like output (output tapers as cells deplete) vs the solarforce s2200s is constant output. this was the deciding factor for me personally - it might not matter to some (in fact im actually considering a vinh mtg2 vostro hehe)
I dont want to bring opinions into this or start a debate - its just something people should be aware of when they are considering the light thats all
