    Nice! I didn't know it was up for sale. I never got the notification. Thx for the PSA!

    Edit:There's no Optics option.

    Narrow is the default choice. All the Radial Groove are sold out except the Stone Washed. The Stone Washed finish look very glossy. Do you have any experience on what that finish feels like compared to the plain finish?

    I had to get one of the stone washed.

    Also IMR 18350s are sold out!

    Any suggestions for where to get a couple?

    Our new system sends out 1 to 1 notifications for the stock we have. If the person doesnít purchase in 24 hours then the system emails the next person.

    Does "BL" stand for Blue Label? Isn't the Delta techically a Blue Label light? Is the lifetime upgrade program exclusive for the Alpha only?

    Are the threads the same as your Alpha lights? Body-to-head (1x28) body-to-tail (7/8x28)
    I was wondering which end I should insert the battery from. If threads are thicker at the head then I'll do it that way.

    The switch side (tail/stand) is interchangeable with the alpha. However, the head is screwed into the body and not onto the body. Changing battery is easiest via the head (as for the alphas). I think that is also intended to be like this. Added some pictures.

    Having it now for a couple of weeks, I must say it is still a great light. Color rich, bright enough and handy.

    Any idea what the dimensions are for that Black O-ring?
    Have you used any of your reward points?

    No both ends of the delta body are 7/8x28 but there is also a head end and tail end. The tail has a deeper o-ring seat to accommodate running the light with no pocket clip.

    Always change the battery through the head to avoid undue stress in the switch spring.

    I check the delta page almost daily i didn't notice the listing. When did that go up?

    edit:
    The hex pattern is NOT engraved underneath the clip in order to keep this design pocket friendly.
    Is there something preventing the clip from rotating?

    Wednesday the 7th I saw it around 1430 PDT and I jumped on it quick. They sold out fast, only 4 made per the description (so far) possibly more if they sold well per Jason.

    Anyone else get their light yet? Is your bezel removeable? I'm having a very difficult time getting it to unscrew.
    I have the stonewashed finish if that makes any difference.

    I got my first one on Thursday so far I have not attempted to remove the bezel. So far it is everything I expected the spot optic is perfect for my use. Plenty bright to see 100 yards to the east corner of my property, spotted a fox last night. This is with the 319A 5k emitters the included card shows 1100 lm and based on my informal testing it is a nice balance of throw and flood.

    Switchable optic would've been a nice bonus add to the light.
    Does your light have a Primary Seal Ring installed? It's listed on the product descriptions but I don't see it on the light.

    Why would the forces on the switch spring be any different depending on which end of the tube you insert the battery?
