    I just received my VB-16 (SSC P4 USWOI) from Waion.

    VB-16 (SSC P4 USWOI)

    Shipping took 5 days.

    Sorry they are all sold out. I am glad I was able to purchase one.

    I really like this light! By far the best VB-16 (4th generation)

    Fit and finish is excellent.

    Type III Hard Anodize is excellent.

    From Waion's thread.
