yeah, if i knew that it was going to be missing the red button, i might have asked if they would leave it, and not do the luxeon. it doesnt really bother me that much though.
the real problem, for me has been ultrasabers in general. it took them a month and a half, to two months for them to get this thing to me. i had to email them like a dozen times... with the final email telling me that they were having staffing change because of exactly the problems i was having.
im not trying to talk trash about ultrasabers, but this being my first experience with them, wasnt the best one. hopefully their service has improved with whatever changes they made internally.
anyways. someone said something about getting a broken maul, and all i can say is that i tried to find one on ebay, with little luck, so this seemed like the best option.
by the way, the saber/flashlight has a few nicks and scratches on it from what i assume is the disassembly, so if youre super anal about that kind of stuff, you might want to look else where anyway.
