Some people are cheap, others are cool....I am cool.
Weren't you giving John hell about buying cool guy flash lights when the cheap ones were just as good?
yep, he gives me hell...it's kinda like his part time job.
Some call it giving hell, I call it an education.
Hey Dustin, Off topic here but you have had the 4seven flashlight for a little bit now, what do you think? For a little single 123a battery key chain sized light its pretty dang cool. Have you been able to get into the hidden modes for the strobe, sos, and Beacon?
I keep it in my car so I don't play with it much. I have gotten to the hidden modes though.
Is it a flashlight or a video game?
Its a flashlight that takes a single 123a battery 180 lumins max or 3 lumin minimum. its has three brightness settings, will run for 1hr on max and 150 minutes on minimum
It has hidden modes that take you into a strobe,or will pound out a true sos code, or choose two other modes that are a beacon in either high or low so every 10 seconds it will turn the flashlight on then back off in either a high lumin or low lumin depending on your setting. If your in a lost or stranded emergency you can set it on beacon low and get 88hrs run time
They have a new one I just learned about while looking up the specs for this post. Its boasting a new max lumin at 252 and minimum 1.5 lumin

Here let me get on my
Now how much does it really cost to thread a barrel?
I bet to make those parts a guy would need a mill, and a lathe for a one time one off part, if it were to be replicated possibly add a water jet or a something like it to cut out multiple parts, that equipment normally isn't free. The materials aren't free the r&d wasn't free the labor spent making the final product isn't free. I agree a 100.00 is a chunk of change but it is marketed to a class of gun owner that has already spent a lot of money on a long series of expensive toys...I am in the NFA section right? And I'll end with a smiley face cuz this is a light hearted reply...your still awesome in my book.
Doesn't cost me anything. I have a guy.
Honestly though these aren't the same thing. The original part for R&D probably cost a couple hundred in time and materials. He's not doing one off custom work any more past that point. Probably just middle manning parts at this point. Every time I thread a barrel, I take the same amount of time or longer than the last one. Some of them do not want to indicate in the 4 jaw. It's weird. Anyway... Every time he runs out of stock, he probably makes a phone call or sends an email. I feel like looking at the parts required, if he's spending anywhere over $50 a set to have them produced, he's doing it wrong. But then again, I could also be talking out of my rear again. Sometimes things cost more to make then they appear they should.
