Probably yes, still have not taken some time to play with it, but i guess, a more efficient circuit(that gives a solid 2,93amp like the M3X, this one draws 1,42amp, doubt if it gives more than 2,6amp on the led, will know soon), a better led, a better glass and we will be getting almost the performance of a M3X. This is a copy anyway, though i think that they could have watched out some details.
Just got my skyray version. I think the solarforce MPP-1 still throws a little better at long distances (300+ yards) but at the shorter distances the output of the Skyray blows away the MPP-1. I am happy with it, seems to be good quality for the money. Mine has the two screws.
Thanks for the update. good to know its still good. I dont know how much MF has sold, probably not that much with the cheaper fandy at dx. so they probably still have the first run available. just ordered some 18500s to make it a bit shorter. mine is still going with regular use. i find it too bright for some applications but its still amazing outside in full darkness.
