In Jason's own words..
I'm excited to announce the launch of the Alpha Ready-Made light!
I've taken 18 months of user feedback and combined the best elements into a Ready-Made flashlight. Unlike my customs, these lights are machined by a local machine shop (not by me) and assembled by me in advance with the most popular features.
These lights are nickel plated immediately after coming off of the CNC lathe. The surface finish is "raw" and not polished, tumbled, or sand blasted in any way. The finish is spectacular and displays not only the method of manufacture, but the skill of the machinist.
Gilbert is the head-man at Hirsch Machine and he's been cutting metal almost longer than I've been alive.
I still hand-assemble every single one. There are some minor differences but the fundamental design is the same as my more expensive customs.
