Maker Monday – S&S Precision Weapon Light Mounts Now Available Complete With SureFire Components

For years, S&S Precision’s weapon light mounts have been highly sought after. Users have taken their existing SureFire weapon light heads and tailcaps to assemble customized solutions. Now, thanks to a new strategic alliance, SureFire components for these mounts are available directly from S&S Precision, offering turnkey solutions.

It’s an integrated solution combining S&S Precision weapon light mounts with the advanced illuminating capabilities of SureFire.

Barger brings extensive sales and business growth experience to the role, having spent almost 30 years delivering impressive business solutions in several different industries. For some six years, Jeff served as Executive Director of Corporate Development for Sturm Ruger Firearms and more recently as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Viridian Green Lasers (Laser Aiming Systems Corporation).

SureFire Releases Its Most Powerful LED Flashlight Ever

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has commenced sales of its most powerful LED flashlight in the company’s 35-year history. The new UDR Dominator® boasts a maximum output of an incredible 2,400 lumens, a level previously not attainable via light emitting diode (LED) technology.


“This represents a significant milestone for SureFire and is only the beginning of things to come as LED technology continues to evolve and improve,” said SureFire Director of Marketing Ron Canfield. “It’s yet another first from a company with a long history of firsts, including inventing the first WeaponLight and the first tactical flashlight.”


With its ultra-high maximum output and a deep precision reflector to shape the light into a far-reaching beam, the Dominator qualifies as a “tactical” flashlight, given its obvious military, law enforcement, and border security applications. But it’s also well-suited for maritime use, search-and-rescue operations, or any other application where an ultra-bright, portable searchlight would prove useful. Along with its 2,400-lumen max setting, the variable-output Dominator also produces eight other useful output levels and even has a strobe-light setting, designed to disorient an aggressor, and a disable feature to prevent accidental activation.


The Dominator is one of several “dual-fuel-capable” flashlights produced by SureFire, which means it can be powered by an included lithium-ion rechargeable battery or by twelve disposable 123A batteries, for situations where recharging the light between uses may not be an option. A built-in, color-coded LED fuel gauge keeps users abreast of remaining battery power, and the light can be charged via an AC wall socket or a DC vehicle socket. Built to be as rugged as it is powerful—for the obvious outdoor uses for which it is intended—the UDR is constructed of lightweight but strong aerospace aluminum, is hard anodized with a durable Mil-Spec finish, and has O-ring and gasket seals to protect sophisticated internal electronics from moisture and debris.


The UDR Dominator has an MSRP of $1,370 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.

Organizational Changes at SureFire

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

According to a memo issued yesterday at SureFire, there are a couple of organizational changes.

First, Jamie Wiedeman who recently returned to SureFire, will move over to Vice President of Military Sales. Jamie is no stranger to the military market having served a full career in the US Army. I got a chance to catch up with him at AUSA and I’d say he is an expert on SureFire products as well as their practical application.

Additionally, new hire Jeffrey Barger will be joining SureFire as Vice President of Marketing and Commercial/Consumer Sales. He brings 30 years of business experience to this role including six years as Executive Director of Commercial Development with Sturm Ruger as well as time as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Viridian Green Lasers.

We wish both well in their new positions.

SureFire – UDR Dominator

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

What do you think of this beast from SureFire? It’s definitely solid and you’ve gotta love the MaxBlast mode which pumps it up to 2400 lumens. The field gauge feature is pretty handy as well. Does anyone have any field experience with it?


SureFire’s UDR Dominator is a powerful man-portable light, capable of outputting upwards of 2400 lumens of white light, ideal for military, border security, and maritime applications, or any mission where a portable white-light spotlight or searchlight is necessary. Featuring a body constructed of aerospace aluminum which is Mil-Spec hard anodized, the Dominator comes in at just under 12 inches in length and is O-ring and gasket sealed to keep out moisture, dirt, and dust. Users can switch between 8 output levels, with the lowest at 15 lumens. A strobe mode is also included with the Dominator.

The LED emitter on the Dominator is “virtually indestructible”, and is microprocessor regulated to maximize output and runtime. The window is coated and tempered to resist impact and thermal shock while maximizing light transmission. The precision reflector creates an extended-range beam.

A three separate push button head switch allows users to switch between constant-on, momentary-on, or MaxBlast modes, the later of which always delivers the maximum 2400 lumens output on every setting on the 11-position selector ring except for the off/disable position. The UDR Dominator is powered either by an included rechargeable Lithium-ion battery or twelve 123A batteries via the ‘battery magazine’. Users can charge the Dominator using either an included 120 volt wall charger, or 12 volt DC/car charger. A 3-color LED indicator, dubbed the “fuel gauge”, lets users know the current battery level of their Dominator.

SureFire Ryder .22 Awarded Suppressor Of The Year By Guns & Ammo Magazine

Monday, November 10th, 2014

It’s been announced that Guns & Ammo Magazine has awarded the SureFire Ryder .22 their Suppressor of the Year award. Congrats to SureFire for the award! The full release can be read below:

Suppressor of the Year

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high performance illumination tools, suppressors and tactical products, has been awarded the first ever suppressor of the year award for the Ryder .22 from Guns & Ammo magazine.

“Suppressor use is quickly gaining wider acceptance for its inherent safety benefits and the joy it brings to people who use them,” said Eric Poole, Guns & Ammo Editor. “Combine a new lightweight suppressor design optimized for America’s favorite rimfire and you have Guns & Ammo’s top pick.”

The .22 Ryder features a unique pig-nosed baffle design that provides superior sound attenuation while still making it easy to service. Each baffle is Red Mil-Spec hard anodized to minimize finish erosion and makes carbon buildup easier to spot when cleaning. Built-in spacers also help reduce carbon buildup between the suppressor tube and baffle stack, and each baffle is numbered and indexed to make re-assembly effortless. An assembly/disassembly tool is included with every suppressor.

The ultra lightweight Ryder comes in at a mere 3.1 ounces due to its fluted body design and rounded edges­. A stainless steel threaded interface ensures the Ryder removes as a single unit, and its single–point cut ½ x 28 threads provide a secure attachment to any .22 pistol or rifle with a ½ x 28 thread pitch. At only 5.4 inches in length, and 1 inch in diameter, the SF Ryder .22 will not weigh down or obstruct your sight picture.

The SF Ryder 22-A comes with an assembly/disassembly tool, and suppressor pouch. MSRP is $429 and is available for purchase through authorized SureFire Suppressor dealers. For complete product information visit

SureFire 3P Eliminator 556 Flash Hider

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


SureFire has just released a brand new budget-priced, military-grade flash hider for AR-15 variant weapons that they claim reduces muzzle flash by over 99%. The Eliminator is a three-prong design designed to fit AR-15s with 1/2×28 muzzle threads, and duplicates the key functional design elements of the SureFire SF3P-556-1/2-28 flash hider. Worth noting is, unlike the SF3P, the Eliminator isn’t compatible with SureFire SOCOM suppressors.


The Eliminator is precision machined from US mil-certified steel bar stock, with single-point cut threads for optimum thread interface, and treated with a black Melonite finish that protects it from harsh environmental conditions.
