    I think they briefly had an MSRP of $2200 listed on the website at one point. This would typically translate into street pricing around $1500. Haven't heard anything more definite than that.

    You should consider as well, the XeRay XV-LX70 (50/70 watt) from XeVision (a USA company). About 7500 lumens on the high setting. It has an equally high build quality and it produces far more lumens than either of these you mentioned. Some well respected members here have tested it, with outstanding results. I am sure someone will comment.
    Also it is in serial production NOW.

    Sorry, I missed this question quite some time ago. Back in August of this year, in this thread.
    You can only buy directly from the USA manufacturer (XeVision) for North American Markets etc. (American Continents).
    For European markets, you can contact Lemax (Czech mfg.) directly.

    At this time XeVision does not sell through dealers. In the future that could change.
    XeVision is the manufacturer of the ballast electronics used for the USA builds, as well as the ballast in the Czech builds.
    The Electroformed reflectors are also of USA origin in both locations. The bulbs are ALL (both locations) of European origins, not ASIAN made.

    I'd love to have one, but I can't just own one light only, so I'd have to purchase 2.

    I want to be able to use one for a week or so before plunking down $1500 for one torch much less 3K for two.
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach.

    Awesome!

    The only thing I have that's similar is a Polarion PH40 CWSL (Crew Served Weapon Light) which puts out 4000 lumens and has a duplex electroformed reflector.

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