    Ugh... I've had the same from folks who should know better. That one has seen some use.

    When I first saw it, I thought it might've been a knock off. I wrote FourSevens asking them if they were aware of anyone producing fake titanium Bolt Action lights. They said, "No, not that they were aware of." I sent them a couple of pictures but that's as far as it went. The machining is so rough I just couldn't believe it was an original.

    I would have asked the seller to take it back and issue a refund, but the light wasn't available anywhere else.

    As far as the seller, he didn't make any effort to disclose how bad the light L@@Ked. However, I don't think the light has seen any abuse. It doesn't look abused or warn. It just looks like a knock off or a second. It should've ended up in the recycle pile.

    I saw that as an attempt at a "stone wash" finish, where the part is put in a vibrating drum of metal shards to "beat" the surface into a random pattern, obscuring any remaining machine marks from manufacturing. Only that one had machining marks way too deep and got way too little time in the finishing media.

    Your hypothesis makes sense to me, Hondo.

    I'm thinking about sending it to Precisionworks for some additional bead blasting, but I'm concerned these makers marks wouldn't be retained. Also, member YummyBacon thinks some additional tumbling would be necessary. I don't want to end-up with a generic Bolt-Acton.

    Hi ya, ven. I forgot to include the photo credit. That picture was absconded from the FourSevens Facebook page.

    It's pretty cool. Lord knows I'd never stack mine like that.

    Hey, Crazyeddiethefirst, I messed up on the photo credit above. That light and Spyd-e belong to member thinkx2. I hope we both enjoy our new Mini Mark Turbo.

    reppans, that's a good start.

    I could not resist, and added two more of the last Quark Pro's to my collection, despite having way too many already. I hope the last remaining 3 get to CPF'ers. They are the QPLC variety, CR123, no clip. There are still a bunch of the QTL's. Tried to get this out to a broader audience here on good deals, but got smacked down, as expected, because the venue is the ever popular auction site. So go get 'em guys, you can't buy parts for the price of these great complete lights, and there won't be any more made.

    "FourSevens Random Question Thread"

    Ok, I got a random question. Four Sevens MMU-X3. October 2014, I purchased the MMU-X3. I did well selecting my first real light. This permanently classic item will be forever beloved by flashoholics. I still love this light.

    Question: Can this light receive an emitter upgrade? 1.8 inch/46mm head diameter, with three partially overlapping reflector wells: So nice a reflector configuration. Please, please remove the legacy emitters and replace them with current technology emitters. That would be oh so nice!
