Well, ended up ordering one to go with the Copper one I already have. BTW, the size is perfect just for fidgeting with and rolling around in your hand. And the varying textures give a great tactile experience.

This is the second time in as many months that this light is being offered exclusively here on MD. I wonder why? It's not even available at countycomm, even when it reappeared after being absent for two years. I see that the photos show the original design and not the newer revision a'la the current Copper one. Wonder which one we will get.

I ended up ordering one here and it is as pictured (scooped out back with the lanyard hole on the side). I actually like this style better than the harsh-cornered back that comes on the Copper ones.
glennac
Agree! 👍 I ended up ordering one too.
I need the O-ring for this light! I've contacted Maratac and CountyComm and got no response. Great light otherwise, but I've been without the O-ring and it isn't a standard size so tough to find in stores.
With PWM again?

All REV, Copper and SS have scary PWM on low and med.

Huh! I have the Copper 123 and don’t notice anything on Low, even when sweeping the light back and forth. Here is an interesting discussion on the effect. Doesn’t appear to bother most folks, nor I, and I’m prone to migraines. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?268122-Do-you-like-PWM-(pulse-width-modulation)-controlled-lights
What happened? I got an email about this light, but the drop is “Inactive”? Was it a mistake? 🤷🏻‍♂️ UPDATE: Ok, the announcement email was a day too early. “Active” now. 👍🏼
No shipping to Germany, incomprehensible and very unfortunate......
Teletin
Howdy, Let me know as I live in California and I can pick one up and send to you. Cheers!
zipsurf
Thank you very much, a great offer but I already have someone in the USA who will do the shipping for me! Nevertheless it is a pity that Europe is excluded again.  Best regards
If anyone from Massdrop is reading.....please do another drop of these in Copper with International Shipping :-)

Yes Copper! Anyone own? Can attest to the quality and Hi-cRI neutral white option?
zipsurf
I have it and it’s a gorgeous light. I’m not obsessive as others about CRI so no matter to me. But the element is an XP-G3. And here’s CountyComm’s page on it with details but no mention of CRI: https://countycomm.com/collections/view-all-light-products/products/copper-cr123-led-flashlight-by-maratac-rev-3-2018
When is the next order going to happen?
Anyone can confirm it does use 16340?

Sorry about that. I had the 18650 on my mind. Good catch!
WWEFANS
It works with 4.2V.
Anyone else having shipping issues trouble receiving your flashlights?

We show this order as 100% shipped, if you're still having issues with delivery please submit a help ticket via My Transactions in your member profile.

Thank you for your reply. My apologies. I should have been more clear. You are correct; as near as I can tell the order appears to be 100% shipped on your end. However, it is, unfortunately, also 0% delivered on my end. The breakdown appears to have happened with FedEx. I've already asked MassDrop for help tracking it down, and Kevin is on the case. He said if I don't hear back from him by February 23, to contact him for an update. So that's what I will do. I was just reaching out to see if anyone else had a shipping issue, or if the shipping issue is confined to me alone.
lalala, no international shipping, no copper, pass....
Is that shipping date right? Shipping Feb 17th and delivering in Dec?
I have this light. Carries nicely and bright enough for most tasks. I may join and get another. Definitely would like one in copper.
can you put gift on the customs declaration? as we get a big customs tax bill when receiving from USA
well, if it were available for shipping to Germany i would have already bought one the last drop.
Yay, a reference picture with a battery. Keep up the good work.
I was browsing another drop and saw 4 flashlights being promoted in drops. I'm not interested in the flashlights tbh but I was a bit irked that there were no reference pics in any of the drops, except this one.
Too bad this doesn't take a RCR123 (16340) lithium ion cell, or have a neutral white emitter. Drivers for this size are common. No excuse

I hear ya. I have enough lights where I lost the tint lottery. Have 6 lined up for emitter changes right now.
i think theres some on budgetlightforum. i use it but then i cant link to myself!lol i dont run it continuously so that the battery runs dead. its just for a few minutes at a time.
Seriously, again no international shipping?!
@MD Support: Was thinking about buying two of these for gifts, but when I try to join the drop and change the quantity to 2, it also charges me twice for shipping - $9.50 instead of $4.75. Is that intentional?
Does anyone have an idea if Maratac has any plans to produce the copper version again? Maybe an exclusive for Massdrop?

in May
What knife is that in the youtube video? It's gorgeous!

Holy shit $2800. Sigh. Of course it's beautiful.
TriangleTodd
The Marfione custom is going to be a production knife soon. It will be the Microtech MK6. Not sure what the pricing will be, but I would guess under $1000.

You don't have any friends here in the U.S. or up in Canada?

Unfortunately not :-(
Over the last few months I've sent numerous messages to customer support regarding my faulty Maratac Copper Cr123 and had no response what so ever...I'm hoping that by commenting on an active drop for a similar Maratac product I will get an answer to my query. Thanks

I would say the same, except sadly they didn't have parts for any possible repair on my out of warranty AAx2 rev 2. They did contact me at the very least and say they'd get back to me when they do...we'll just have to wait and see if that happens or if they even plan to continue production of it. They were kind enough in the emails as well, so there's that, just sucks that for now I have an expensive paper weight.
Dr_Gonzo
This has now been resolved by the Massdrop team...just waiting on delivery of my replacement Maratac...will update on arrival...Thanks
I like it. I have both generations of the copper one. Glad they improved the threading. The 1st generation threads were not fine enough.
So how come the postage has gone up again?? 😡😡😡
UK Shopper & first time using MassDrop. My package Departed London on August 13. When do I need to contact CCL? USPS currently says in transit.

A shame they won't put on the customs declaration that it's a gift. £15 is quite a bit on top of the $60 for light and postage. Would be handy if somewhere else sold this and posted to the UK
The thing about the high customs charge that you have to remember is that there's a long and respected tradition of piracy as a way of funding British government (think Walter Raleigh, etc).
Any rechargeables work in this thing?
ribstabsheart
In my copper one I've used rechargeables although I don't always run on high

Will this drop show up before Labor Day Massdrop...???
Any update since the Drop completed?
Whiterabbit08
I'm curious too - is everything okay with this Drop?
