SureFire Shipping NEW 1,000-Lumen X400U & X400UH

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce the launch of the all-new 1,000 lumen X400U and X400UH models. These will be available in the both red and green laser versions for holster compatible and non-holster compatible lights. The SureFire X400U is the finest duty-grade handgun WeaponLight and laser combination available today. The X400U, features 1,000 lumens of stunning white light focused by a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens to produce a tight beam with extended reach and significant surround light for peripheral vision. Located below the primary light, the X400U’s 5-milliwatt laser sight emits a high-visibility beam, perfect for non-standard shooting positions and use in low-light scenarios. The laser’s aiming adjustment mechanism uses Nylok® screws that won’t back out from the effects of recoil, which means it rarely needs to be re-zeroed.  The X400U is activated via ambidextrous switching located at the rear of body, providing one-finger control — press the switch on either side for momentary-on activation, flip up or down for constant-on activation. Optional DG grip switches (for handguns) permit the X300U to be activated with one hand, without altering your grip on your weapon.

DSS Selects MAWL-DA with AA Battery Adapter as its Primary NIR Weapon Laser

Monday, October 29th, 2018

The United States Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) has formally approved the B.E. Meyers & Co. MAWL®-DA (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser – Direct Action)  for use as its primary weapon-mounted aiming and illumination laser. Initial bulk orders of the MAWL®-DA will provide DSS agents with a welcome advantage during low-light/no-light operations. Each MAWL® has been equipped with B.E. Meyers & Co.’s EndCap 2, and incorporates a brand new AA battery adapter for dual power options (AA or CR123 batteries).

As an inherently modular platform, the MAWL® allows for a host of future upgrades and modifications. Leveraging the flexibility of the system, B.E. Meyers & Co. developed the AA Battery Adapter for the EC2 (EndCap 2) to the address unique logistical challenges faced by DSS officers. This component simplifies supply chain hurdles in areas of operation where CR123 batteries are not readily available, and is fully compatible with all EC2 equipped MAWL® variants. The AA battery option maintains the same power output ratings that distinguish the MAWL® as the preferred choice for professional end-users.

Prior to choosing the MAWL® -DA, the DSS subjected it to rigorous field testing and end-user evaluation trials. Its overall performance, including its modularity, AA compatibility, and patented near infrared VCSEL technology, ensured the MAWL®-DA’s selection for DSS Special Agents working abroad under night vision.

The EC2 compatible AA Battery Adapter was designed specifically to meet DSS laser requirements and initial production is being focused on fulfilling current and future DSS orders. B.E. Meyers & Co. plans to make the AA Battery Adapter available through MAWL® distributors following the fulfillment of government contracts.

Gray Fox Strategic Inc -Nightcap

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

This is ingenious. Like many others, Gray Fox Strategic realized that the Surefire X300 Ultra won’t fit in the Safariland 6354DO holster due to its extra length. So, they decided to do something about it. Sure, many just cut a hole in the bottom of the holster, but the cap is there for a reason. It helps mitigate negligent light discharges, and protects the lens of the light.

Installation is a snap. Below, you can see the difference between the Gray Fox Strategic Nightcap and the original, which incorporates the star patterns.

What’s more, they offer multiple color options.
