    I was just looking at the 2015 Surefire Full Catalog and it sure does have the Arc2 and Arc3 pictured and forsale in it. I am really starting to think this will be a reality soon..!

    See posts #59 & #60. When suppliers start quoting delivery dates, you can pretty much be sure it is going to be real.
    Remember, Two is One, and One is None!.

    OK OK Time is finally getting close on these and whom else is stepping up and snagging one of these beauties when they hit the shelves? Well you can count me in on one (just because)....! So it looks like it does NOT come with a battery charger ?

    Well according to B&H Site, They still show them for delivery on the 21st of July and that is a little over two weeks. They dont show what the packaging looks like and currious how they are shipped and packed. I see for a extra $15.00 you can get next day delivery..

    Hi all,

    I see, this HID light, has 670000 cd, over 1600 meters of throw.

    Is this enough, to outthrow, have more candela, than the highbeam of a motorbike/car, with halogen....or a powerfull HID kit?

    HID kits, you see at todays fast motorbikes.

    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.

    Then there's Vinh's new TK75vn77 which puts out 20,000 lumens and costs about $1100 depending on options.

    I just prepaid for mine from B&H and added next day air before 1030am..By prepaying, you hold one and they ship it as soon as they come in . Looks like next Wed possibly i will have mine..

    I suspect Surefire was hoping for enough firm pre-orders to justify a limited production run.
    Of course I could be totally wrong on that, but it seems the only logical explanation, for so many delays.

    Wow, a years worth of delays more or less.

    What good would just the head be to me..? I bought the entire kit with a extra battery. I want a portable flashlight and not hooked up to some type of cord etc..

    Congrats on your purchase.

    That was me as you know, and 12 to 18 months since the initial claimed availability. That's a long time.
    Months of delays and postponements before the "vapor" finally condensed.

    You did not answer if you bought only the head or also the $1300 battery ?
    I suppose the battery includes a large amount of unobtainium, we all know how expensive that stuff is.

    Wow, ~4 grand you are a devotee.

    You could have bought an ARC3 instead of the extra (2nd) battery, and had both the ARC2 and the ARC3.
