    SFG2Lman,

    Can I make you an offer? I'd be totally honored if you were to take this light to Iraq with you. Take it with you and and put it through its paces. Don't worry about banging it up, I'm fine with some bumps and scrapes and it would make a great story. You can keep us up to date from time to time on how its treating you as well.

    Seriously, I'd be honored if you take it with you. I'm just going to hold it to you to it to get the light and YOURSELF back here safely... and soon!!!

    What do you say?

    MSax

    PS - This sale is temporarily on hold everyone.

    MSax,

    That is an incredibly generous offer and I feel very taken care of, but I must refuse. I would feel guilty borrowing this light for a year simply because I happen to be going, and I happened to be going right now, you are selling a very rare and beautiful light, and I don't think its fair to everyone else on the forum that are willing to pay. I don't know how to explain it...I would love nothing more than to use this light, but I feel like I am abusing my membership in the armed forces/taking advantage of others patriotism for my own benefit.

    PS: it also just occurred to me that everyone is not as honest as us over there, and I couldn't forgive myself if a light like that were to fall into non-CPF hands and be lost to us, but still...I could hug you just for the offer

    SFGL2man,

    Spoken like a true professional; gracious and humble. I apologize if I have made you feel uncomfortable in any way, that certainly wasn't my intent. I simply wanted to offer you a small token of my appreciation for your service to our Country from all of us here a CPF. ...and I certainly don't feel taken advantage of. Heck, I made the offer!

    Well, I'm off to bed now, but I'll leave the offer open for you for the time being in case you change your mind. I'm also going to shoot you PM.

    Best of luck my friend and take care of yourself.

    What an amazing looking light! Looks like it should belong in a museum.

    Very tempting, but i've spent waaay toooo much this month already.

    And very nice gesture towards SFG2Lman. Our service men/women and their families deserve every ounce of support we can give them.

    I know of no super blockbuster emitter that's about to appear... Cree XP-G is supposed to be out in a few months, but I won't be able to push it as hard, so its increased brightness will largely be nullified... plus I can't say how it will do with the reflectors and optics that could fit in a Gotham.

    This answer is from Scott , his first choice is a K2 emitter and I think he knows what is the best for this light.

    ahh very true, did you get before shots/beamshots so that we can have a good comparison? I am intrigued to see the difference, and congrats on a gorgeous light

    That's the set-up in mine and it rocks, the ultra low looks to be about .2 lumens and Scott said on high it is about 300 lumens not sure what the low and medium are but they are spread out perfectly. Scott is a master

    Last week I received the Gotham from Milky, the upgrade is done!

    Now it runs with a K2TFFC-UWOE emitter and the driver is set at 1.3A this K2 provides 220 lumens at 1A, or 300 lumens at 1.5A , 1.3A I guess 286 emitter lumen or about 200+ OTF Lumen.
    Califon firmware installed.
    The lens has a diffuser film for a good spot and spill with a smooth reflector.(removeable)
    The tint is on the warm side to my eyes.
    It's word every penny,this one is a keeper!
