This laser was custom made for me by a forum member back in December. I Paid around $400 for it, asking $300 obo.

Built by Griande in France
MS V1 host with satin finish made by forum member Sinner in Dubai
N465 canned diode from DTR's shop
Driver set to 3.8A
Metered at 5048mW when shipped in December
Dimensions: 130mm x 30mm (5.1" x 1.2")
Uses 2x 16340 batteries (included)
Includes 3 lenses: Sanwu G7. 3-element. A rare single element "G9" lens from a 9mm Ben Q sourced diode.

Notes:
Batteries go in + head first.
Recommended duty cycle 30-60 seconds on, 2 min off.
Excellent quality, fit and feel.
Color of the beam is much more aqua looking than the photos suggest.

I don't have an LPM but I'd guess the total runtime since I got it is about 5min. I'm located in Portland Oregon. Will ship to a tenured forum member for testing with deposit.

Oops, didn’t notice. I just gave him some more rep so he meets BST requirements.

Sweet looking laser for sale. Griande does some great work. The n465 is one of my favorite diodes, love the beam it throws. If it doesn’t sell I might be back, I’ve always want a “Griande build” in my collection. Best wishes with your sale. :)

It may be your camera, but those beam shots look far too violet to be 470nm. There are 9 mm diodes in the 445nm range that would look like that. Good luck with your sale.

Yes, the color is completely different in person. It's surprisingly hard to accurately capture in photos, you'll notice that others have the same difficulty, even in youtube videos. The diode is definitely the N465

that didn't last long. laserPDX, if I may ask, how long of a run time did two 16340 give you?

I imagine that price you paid included shipping to the USA. Happy you were able to find someone so quickly to purchase it at a price that was acceptable to both of you. :yh:

Haha it was a little bit less than $ 400 and included shipping! ;) With all the lenses he was including this was a good price. Anyway glad to see it sold quickly!

If the new owner has any issues over the year just let me know.:beer:

I had a feeling the $400 price was exaggerated. Even with the price you had to pay to get the last of these sinner hosts, I didn't see you charging that much for a build. I suspect the $400 price was used to justify the asking price of $300. Thanks for clearing that up, grainde.

Nope as I said it was a little under $ 400. Dont forget this is an N450, but of couse it did include shipping. If BBB wants to check pricing have a look at Rickrent he sort of sets the benchmark.:beer:
