    Seeing in the banner, Olight has on CPF, this one is limited to 999 pieces.
    Wonder if I'll see one over here, or that this will be a America only light.

    I would send Olight an email regarding European availability: kontakt@olightgermany.de

    I am really looking forward to this one. Time to boil some eggs.

    I just got mine. Wow, what a massive hunk of beautiful copper. No doubt the heaviest light I have except maybe for my 6xD cell Maglites when fully loaded. You wouldn't want to drop it on your foot. And at 2500 lumens a real photon blaster as well. I ordered two. At $149.00 I consider this a great buy.

    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    It's a fantastic light.

    I was telling a friend who's a fellow flashaholic about a month ago that I'd love to see a copper light in 26650 size, but I said it would probably never happen because of the weight. Ha-ha, the joke's on me since a month later I see the ad on the CPF, and I say "holy sh*t" and immediately bought a couple. :-)

    The Olight website shows the same weight as the alloy R50 (8.99 oz.), I wonder what they copper model really weighs. Hope they beefed up the lanyard and provided a holster as doubt it would be pocketable without suspenders.

    Beautiful set you have there...
    Thanks for the weight measurement - almost twice the alloy R50!

    I saw this was being released today. Been waiting eagerly for several days to order it only to find the web site says "USA only" VERY disappointed

    I have emailed the will have to wait and see what they say but with only 999 pieces I doubt they will export.

    I sure wish there wasn't blue anodizing on the bezels. I think I may breakdown and buy one and remove the anodizing.
    Looking to buy a LF2XT any age/type/condition. Also very interested in Aleph, Erin, and Tranquility Base stuff, please message me !

    That might be heat treatment not anodizing. Just a wild guess.

    I think it is Olights PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating on the bezel ring, blow torch for some heat treating looks a good option

    I had to snag one too.
    I hope this isn't made again later on in NW ... I mean I DO ... but then I'd have to sell this CW unit.

    I though my addiction had waned .... but then COPPER lights were/are built.

    Hrr, it's a glorious chunk of copper. Amazingly heavy too!

    To make it more special, Olight really should have offered this with a neutral white high CRI LED.

    Just a note, you can physically lock out the R50-Cu by opening the tailcap even a tiny bit.
