I don't get it. It states a limited run of 500 lights but then states 796 sold. Now I'm no mathematician but something seems off.

796 ever sold on Massdrop. That's over several years. But each time Maratac manufactures them they make 500 at a time.

Very quick question: is this flashlight being discontinued?
I got one several drops back, but start seeing reference to a V2 model. Gear neurosis kicks in and I look around the web to see if I got the the V2.
Right on CountryComm's own website it describes the differences. One difference is that the V2 has a "Hollowed out back taile end," which mine has. So I'm assuming it's a V2.
Then at the bottom of the page it says "PRICE $75."
Then under that in red "QUICK LAST CALL SALE $54.95."
Not sure if there's additional shipping on top of that or not.
So I'm wondering if this model is being discontinued.
If so, they'll either come out with a V3, or else cease production of the model altogether. Food for thought if you're on the fence about getting one of these.

One possibility is that the next version of the copper CR123 might be able to take rechargeable batteries. Apparently, standard voltage for a non-rechargeable battery is 3.0 V, but for a rechargeable, it's 3.6V, and, hot off a charger, could be as high as 4 + volts. So if the electronics can't handle the high voltage (or the bulb, in the case of an incandescent flashlight), there could be damage. But, where the FL can handle the voltage, the rechargeable can be brighter, at least initially.

What is the medium brightness setting and the battery life for it? Also, does the progression go low-medium-high in that order? What is the waterproofness level and the impact rating?

@tyler.h, I notice that the price of this has increased since the last drop, and it's now billed as the rev2. What has changed (improved, I assume)? (Edit -- I see that the price has gone back down $5.00, and is now the same as the previous price). Can it now take rechargeable batteries? (It's a great little light).
Think I just answered my own question -- judging by the weight (~80g), the last drop, which I joined, must have also been the rev2. (The rev1 was 94g). Would be interesting to know the engineering details that make this unable to take rechargeables.

People love to talk bad about every item on the Internet. I know a lot of guys that have these and they all work great, there are just always those guys that no matter how nice the item is and how well it works it doesn't meet their expectation. You won't regret this light because the worst thing that could happen is you sell it and get your money back

I got this light a few drops back. I agree the big selling point of this light is the copper body. It is undeniably cool.
I'm ambivalent about the performance of the light, however. It's OK. I expected a brighter beam from a light of this size and weight.
Also, the beam seems a little too spot-lightey to me. A little wider beam would be easier to use and more useful.
The big turn off for me, though, was that the beam has a slightly yellowish-green color to it. Well, slightly yellow would have been fine - I prefer my lights to be just a bit warmer side of neutral.
But the yellowish-green cast has an interesting effect: whenever I mess around with the light and turn it on, I tell myself that the yellowish-green cast isn't that bad. Still perfectly usable.
But in real life, I find myself never reaching for this light. I have to many other lights with more agreeable beams, color-wise. So this light has not seen any real everyday use.
So I probably would have been better off not having purchased the one I did. I have a feeling I'd be quite a bit happier if my light didn't have that yellowish-green cast.

Frankly, if one's enough of a light geek to buy this type of flashlight, it's expected to have multiples of various types of batteries stockpiled and to appreciate this little baby for what it is.
Not seeing the point of the battery type/life, lack of clip, or inferiority to more run-of-the-mill products, and purpose of the copper is exactly that; missing the point. If you're new to flashlights as a hobby then best to start out elsewhere, like the AAA iteration or one of the other great flashlight deals that drop here, like the Jetbeams and Nitecores.

From Maratac's website: "A Note From The Legal Department: We do not recommend the use of Rechargable batterys with this flashlight. It is designed to use a off the shelf lithium batteries. We do not recommend use of higher voltage batteries. Any attempt to modify these lights will void the warranty. We know when you try to remove the pill." So theres that....

I've had my Maratac Copper now for a couple weeks and have to say for the money that I am not impressed with it at all. I much prefer my Olight S1. Although, it is not made out of Copper it is much brighter and easier to use. I do not like the switching system at all on the Maratac because it is inconvenient and not reliable. If I could I would return the Maratac.

After the first few days, things seem to have settled down. Now when I try it, it mostly works as it should, only occasionally repeating or skipping a setting.

My CR123 copper arrived today. It's quite nicely made, but doesn't seem to follow the switching sequence as described. In fact, it's quite random. A recent test showed medium, low, medium, low, medium, low, medium, high. Sometimes it stays stuck at low for a while; other times it goes low, medium, high, low etc. as it's supposed to. (Wasn't rushing, or dawdling). The main concern here, aside from the extra time needed to finally reach high, is that whatever circuit controls the cycling is marginal and might eventually fail.
