It appears that the GE M-250R2 has entered limited production and is now a special order item. The M-400R3 is still in production, however, GE might discontinue both lights in the near future as well as other HID lights. The M-400R2 and M-400A2 were already discontinued by the end of 2015.

There is absolutely nothing to support this on their website. Where did you find this information?

Currently, the M-250A2, M-250R2, M-400, M-400A, 201SA, Town & Country post top, and Americana post top are the only HID fixtures they still make.

Wikipedia is not a reliable source since all of that information is written by like three know-it-all LG members with very few citations or sources provided.

Go on GE's website. There's not a shed of evidence that even suggests the M-250R2 is for special order only. Whoever wrote that is full of shit...

I stand corrected, I looked on their website and in fact the GE M-250R2 is still listed and it's not labeled as a special order item.

Not your fault. There's a liar on Wiki lol. Unfortunately I can totally see GE ditching their cobraheads any day now since their street lights are their only non-LED products offered. But I don't think it's right for LG members to make assumptions and post them on Wiki like it's a solid fact. Someone should report that article to Wikipedia because it's got numerous glaring errors in it.

In other light (no pun), AEL has discontinued MH offerings for their Powerpad lights (though PSMH is still available for the 115 and 125) and Cooper only sells PSMH for either 200 or 250W and up. No low-watt PSMH offerings. And GE doesn't offer any MH at all. So really no one offers a complete line of cobraheads anymore. Hubbell doesn't even make their cobraheads anymore! They flat-out discontinued them. I still see MassDOT install them for spot replacements though. Must have old stock sitting around...

American Electric also doesn't offer a metal halide option for the 327 Series anymore either. It's only available in 1000 watt high pressure sodium.
