Just FYI Surefire is made in America but, the LEDs for all of their lights are made in China.
I have owned my LumaForce flashlight for 6 years now. I use it daily since I work at a county jail so I am very familiar with it. price was great, the quality is suprising, I actually dropped it from our roof which is a tad higher than 2 stories and it landed on concrete. when i retrieved it i thought it was broken. it actualy turned on for awhile before going out. when i took called to get a replacement lens the rep said to just change the battery. he told me "you will break the battery before you break the lens or any other part of the light" and when i did as instructed he was correct. i have had a surefire and when i dropped it when pulling it out the lamp broke and needed to be replaced. so yes i would say lumaforce is cheap but very reliable and of excellent quality.
