SureFire – Off-Set Scout Light Mounts

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Scout Light Mount

SureFire has released two off-set 1913-compatible mounts for Scout Light models, the RM45 and RM45L. Both mounts are made of aerospace aluminum, hard anodized with Mil-Spec Type III finish. The mounts position the light in the off-set positions between the rails of a 1913 forend, decreasing weapon profile and limiting snag factor. The RM45 is designed to accept Scout Light models equipped with a thumbscrew clamp. The RM45L is designed for Scout Light models equipped with the wider footprint Swing-Lever clamp.

Both mounts are available in Black and Tan.

SureFire – New M600 AA Can Use AA Lithium or Alkaline Batteries

Friday, February 20th, 2015


The new Picatinny compatible M600 AA Scout Light can be powered by AA lithium or AA alkaline batteries, the latter of which are typically more readily available globally.

“The M600 AA’s ability to be powered by two separate types of batteries is a key element to its anticipated success,” said SureFire Product Manager Chris Skahill. “For optimal performance, AA lithiums can be used. But it can also be powered by AA alkalines, which are more readily available and usually easier to find, particularly in remote or rural areas.”

Powered by two lithium AAs, the M600 AA’s solid-state light emitting diode (LED) generates a maximum output of 200 lumens and produces tactical-level output for up to 3.75 hours on a set of batteries. The output and runtime from two AA alkaline batteries is approximately one-third that from lithium AAs, but this reduced output/runtime is theoretically outweighed by the convenience of using these easier-to-find and often less-expensive power cells. But to maximize output and runtime, SureFire recommends powering the M600 AA with lithium batteries whenever possible.


The M600 AA uses a proprietary Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens to shape the LED’s output into a smooth, flawless beam with ample reach and enough surround light to maintain good situational awareness in close- to medium-range applications. Like all SureFire Scout Lights, it securely attaches to any MIL-STD-1913 rail, the M600 AA utilizing an integral thumbscrew clamp that attaches/detaches the light to said rail in a matter of seconds. Constructed of lightweight aerospace aluminum that’s hard anodized with a Mil-Spec finish for added durability, this new Scout Light can be easily activated via its momentary-/constant-on click-type tailcap switch, or via several remote plug-in switch models available for purchase from SureFire as optional accessories.


The M600 AA Scout Light has an MSRP of $299.00 and is currently available for purchase through authorized SureFire dealers. It will also soon be available for purchase directly from SureFire by calling 800-828-8809 or visiting online.

Dueck Defense Rapid Transition Sights Available In Three Flavors

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Designed by Barry Dueck and available through SureFire, the Rapid Transition Sights are now available in three different configurations.


Based in the M16A2 rear and front sight pair, the RTS mount to a Picatinny rail. They present at a 45 degree angle so that you can roll off of your telescopic optic to use the RTS as a backup sight or for close in targets.

In addition to the original model, there is a version with tritium inserts as well as a fiber optic insert. The tritium version incorporates a larger dot at the front sight and two smaller tritium dots on rear sight for easy alignment in low-light conditions. The fiber optic model includes front sight in red, green, or yellow.

SHOT Show – SureFire Introduces 2211X Wrist Light

Thursday, January 29th, 2015


The newest version of the wrist mounted 2211-series of lights is a lower cost alternative that its predecessors. It relies on an easily swappable, single CR123A to offer 150 lumens at 1.5 hours or 15 lumens at 13 hours. It uses a lightweight polymer body and offers a wide beam. Push button switching at the top of the light gives max power with momentary touch or if you hold it down the light switches to low power mode.

Fighter Design USA – Texas Mag Bags

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

I ran into Fighter Design USA’s head man Adam Slank while walking the SHOT Show floor. Every time I see him, he’s got some cool new product. I noticed he was carrying a nylon bag over his shoulder. Not unusual for SHOT Show, but he sat this one in the ground and said, “Got a minute? I’ve got something to show you.”


He pulled back on the handles and the flap came open and I muttered something like, “oh, wow! That’s a lot of magazines.” Adam didn’t miss a beat, replying, “Of course there are, it’s a Texas Mag Bag.”


Offered in both 12 pack and 6 pack (seen below) configurations, the Texas Mag Bags from Fighter Design USA give you quick access to your magazines. A single flap secures with Fighter Design USA’s signature magnets along with dual zippers on a single pull. You simply give it a pull and voila; magazines…lots of loaded, high capacity magazines each nestled into its own slot.


Texas Mag Bags come fully kitted out with the appropriate number of SureFire 60 rd magazines.

SHOT Show – SureFire Blast Diffuser Coming Soon

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015


This the SureFire 5.56mm Blast Diffuser unveiled at last week’s SHOT Show. It adapts to a SF SOCOM muzzle brake / suppressor adapters and pushes the concussion of the muzzle brake forward, away from the shooter and those next to him. Because of this attachment, it does kind of resemble a miniature suppressor, but it’s not.


This is the prototype that was at SHOT Show. Everyone wanted it. I understand they had a cash offer of $600 to sell it, right there at the show. It is now in production and will be available soon.

Vickers Tactical released this video showcasing some new SureFire products including the Blast Diffuser. LAV is interviewing Jamie Wiedeman. They served together in the same Army unit for many years.
