    SOE sells them a bit cheaper than anybody else and they have the most models in stock. They also carry surefire and Blackhawk CR123 batteries.

    thanks sa reply guys. dito ako sa davao. airsoft shop ang nagbebenta ng 2,700. a store in cebu sells it for 2,500 kaso ganun din ang aabot because of bank fee and shipping fee. practical shooter's supply (true weight) here sells it for 2,900. thanks a lot. will buy it na lang.:thumbsup:

    Galing ako sa Davao last April. Dami nga airsoft stores diyan at open sila mag-benta.

    Nakabili ako ng G2 Nitrolon sa airsoft store dito sa Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong ng P2,300.00 dati. Me kasama na batteries. Meron din binebenta na pressure switch pero di na ako bumili. Wala kasi ako M4 eh, wala pag-lalagyan.

    Mura na yan sa P2,700.00.

    Yeah, everybody who posted here is right, 2,700 is a good price. G2 is a good light, very bright and sturdy despite being plastic. Just make sure they have spare bulbs etc. Also be wary of using digital cam batteries in your Sure-Fire, it might leak...use Night-Ops or Sure Fire batts lang. They're cheaper than Sanyo/Sony too!

    I saw some fake E2D's this weekend (looks far from the real thing, but also has a pointy bezel) selling for 1000...looks decent enough, but I doubt that it would survive use as an impact weapon.

    I buy mine from S.O.E. at roughly 200 a pop...I used to buy from True Value - Sanyo for 255 a piece! Sheesh. Oh, and if you pay in cash, Manny and Bien give you a better price, so less than 200 na yata...

    I had Panasonic and Sanyo CR123 batts for around P114 each. I also found Sanyo CR123 at our local Camera shot at P100.00. I had compared this batts with my bunch of surefire batts, and runtime is similar.

    If you are in bargain hunting mode, marami sa Raon who are selling good CR123s for around P65-80. With this price, di ma mahihinayang gumamit sa iyong light.

    Also, you can get a GP Luxeon LED conversion and use the G2 as an everyday "bright white light". This set-up is better compared with all those cheapo lights from China...

    I get my CR123s at Lights Up Mini stall in SM deparment stores at 80 pesos each. Bull ang brand

    In Davao Gaisano Mall Department store, Sanyo CR123 sells less than a hundred

    Battery Kingdom at CM Recto St. Davao sells CR123s at prices usually lower than others

    Oops Sorry. I think it was Panasonic or Sanyo. It was a while since I last bought CR123s from that department store as I get my CR123s at Lights Up in SM since last year as they are the cheapest that I can find. Bull is the brand

    May kumakalat na fake Sanyo and Panasonic CR123's. A guy brought in his surefire sa SOE. His battery exploded inside the light and fused with the lamp assembly rendering it useless. Kung konti lang difference in price, go with surefire or blackhawk batts nalang.

    re:rechargeable CR123> Please make sure that you have the 3.0v types. Most Lithium rechargeable are rated at 4.2volts, so this is no go. Also, much better to buy rechargeable that has overvoltage protection. Rechargeables are relatively a complicated bunch. It is also not recommended to couple them -- meaning stand-alone use are preferred. Rechargeables are more applicable for LED lights, since most have built-in current regulators.
