Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest and most innovative illumination tools and tactical products, announced today that it has started a comprehensive program to streamline its operations, refine its product offerings, and cut overall expenditures, which regrettably includes the reduction of its workforce. The company notes a drop in U.S. Military spending as the primary reason for these painful but necessary steps.
Dr. John Matthews, CEO and founder of SureFire said, “We had to make some difficult decisions to layoff some very good people. SureFire ramped up to meet the demands of our military but we must “right-size” now that military spending has declined.” Matthews continued, “SureFire will continue to provide military, law enforcement, and consumers with industry-leading products with unmatched quality and our lifetime guarantee. Products built to help keep our customers safe and secure.”
The company notes that their product mix is more ambitious and innovative than ever. This includes several groundbreaking suppressors like the SF Ryder 9 and the new whisper-quiet SOCOM300 SPS as well as illumination products like the auto-adjusting P2X Fury® flashlight with IntelliBeam™ Technology (launched last week) and the highly anticipated ultra-compact XC1 that will launch later this summer. All these products and about a dozen more were announced at SHOT Show 2015. Many have started to ship—and the initial consumer response has been strong. There is much more to come this year including a totally revamped line of dual-spectrum V-Series lights and a new low-cost polymer-bodied 2211X WristLight that costs nearly two-thirds less than the original all-aluminum model! Stay tuned.
SureFire has recently announced their new auto-adjusting P2X Fury with IntelliBeam Technology. The full release can be read below:
Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is releasing its first auto-adjusting flashlight—an IntelliBeam™ version of the popular P2X Fury. This new Fury with proprietary IntelliBeam™ Technology (P2XIB) features an intelligent sensor and microprocessor-based system that continuously and seamlessly adjusts light output by constantly evaluating your surroundings. This model always delivers the right amount of light for the task at hand.
This cutting-edge technology also helps preserve dark-adapted vision by evaluating the environment before turning on, so it never activates on high in close quarters. If you’re in an open field, you’ll get all 600 lumens. If you’re prepping gear or loading a vehicle, it will dial in the necessary output based on the environmental feedback it receives, down to as little as 15 lumens. Just press or click the tailcap switch to engage this auto-adjusting mode. To override this mode, simply return to off and press or click again within one second to activate the max-output/tactical mode. This second press or click locks in all 600 lumens where maximum output is needed. The P2XIB defaults to IntelliBeam mode when it’s off for more than one second.
The P2X Fury with IntelliBeam Technology—like all Fury models—uses a high-performance LED to deliver its broad, intense light that’s focused by its reflector into a smooth, wide beam with a bright central area and generous peripheral light. The high-strength aerospace aluminum body is knurled to provide a comfortable yet secure grip and it is hard anodized to military specifications (Mil-Spec Type III) for extreme resistance to abrasion and corrosion.
The P2XIB is powered by two 123A lithium batteries (included) and has a MSRP of $229. It’s available for purchase via authorized SureFire dealers, by visiting www.surefire.com, or by calling SureFire at 800-828-8809.

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance illumination tools, suppressors, and tactical products, has begun accepting orders for the latest model in its high-performance line of SOCOM Fast-Attach® sound suppressors. The new SOCOM300-SPS is the quietest suppressor ever built for 300 Black Out (subsonic and supersonic), .308 and 300 Win Mag. This versatile suppressor is also very effective in suppressing the 5.56mm cartridge.
The SOCOM300-SPS owes its sound-suppressing prowess to highly specialized baffles creating a longer dwell time within the suppressor and achieving unprecedented levels of sound attenuation. The suppressor is constructed of Inconel, an advanced high-temperature alloy, and stainless steel, and it typically adds only 6 inches to the length of a weapon. Computer-controlled welding enhances the suppressor’s overall durability, as does a corrosion-resistant coating of Ionbond DLC and Cerakote™ ceramic finish. In fact, the SOCOM300 SPS, like all SureFire SOCOM Series suppressors, is durable enough for full time use and designed to typically outlast the weapon barrel to which it attaches.
A precision indexing system ensures that the suppressor mounts to a compatible SureFire SOCOM series adapter—which also serves as a high-performance muzzle brake or flash hider when the weapon is unsuppressed—securely and with perfect alignment every time. This patented no-tools Fast-Attach system also makes the suppressor easy to remove after extended firing because the index tab is located in a low-carbon-buildup area. Like all SureFire SOCOM suppressors, the SOCOM300-SPS produces minimal and consistent point-of-impact shift compared with the unsuppressed weapon, regardless of the number of times the suppressor is attached and detached to and from the weapon.
The SOCOM300-SPS suppressor is available in two colors—Black and Dark Earth—and has an MSRP of $1075. It is available for purchase in states that allow suppressor ownership through authorized SureFire suppressor dealers. For complete product information visit: www.surefire.com/socom300-sps-2
Big news today, as SureFire official launches the new SF Ryder 9 Ti suppressor. Building upon the SF Ryder 22-A, the SF Ryder 9 Ti features a titanium body with stainless steel baffles. The full release can be read below:
Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance illumination tools, WeaponLights, suppressors, and tactical products is building upon the success of its award-winning SF Ryder 22-A suppressor—awarded “Suppressor of the Year” by Guns & Ammo—by releasing a battle-ready version for 9mm pistols and rifles. The new SF Ryder 9-Ti—“Ti” standing for titanium—features an ultra-light titanium tube, front plate, and rear plate that help minimize the suppressor’s overall weight without any sacrifice in strength.
The 9mm SF Ryder 9 Ti—like the .22 suppressor upon which it is based—features pig-nose baffles that provide superior sound attenuation and reduced muzzle blast by precisely directing gasses from fired rounds. This ingenious baffle design—in this case built from durable, heat-treated stainless steel—also makes cleaning the suppressor a simple process. Built-in spacers help reduce carbon buildup between the baffles and the suppressor tube, and every baffle is indexed and individually numbered for foolproof disassembly and reassembly—made even easier by an included assembly/disassembly tool.
Along with use of high-grade titanium in its construction, the 9.5-ounce Ryder 9Ti reduces weight through a clever outer tube design that features rounded edges and fluting, which also makes it easier to get an accurate sight picture with the suppressor attached. The thread-on suppressor securely attaches via single-point cut threads available in either 1Ž2×28 or M13.5×1 thread sizes. Attaching the suppressor is simply a matter of screwing it on to a compatibly threaded 9mm barrel until hand tight.
Built to exacting standards and unrelenting quality like SureFire’s battle-proven Fast-Attach® SOCOM suppressors, the Ryder 9Ti is designed for recreational shooting and tactical applications. Its titanium and stainless steel construction, precision threading, and a tough, attractive Cerakote™ finish available in three colors—black, dark earth, and wolf gray—make it ideal for most any application. MSRP is $799, and the suppressor is available for purchase through authorized SureFire suppressor dealers.

During SHOT Show, SureFire debuted a product called the Blast Diffuser. Although it looks like a miniature suppressor, it isn’t. Now called the “Warden” it adapts (via the SureFire Quick Attach mechanism) to SF SOCOM muzzle brake / suppressor adapters and pushes the concussion of the muzzle brake forward, away from the shooter and those next to him.
The SF Ryder 300 SPS (Special Purpose Suppressor) comes in two types: there’s a Fast Attach variant which is the same as the SOCOM cans as well the Genesis Direct Thread model. It’s the quietest suppressor that SureFire has ever built and incorporates a completely new baffle design with a very steep ‘V’ rather than their traditional cup design. But, unlike the Ryder 9 & 22, you cannot take these apart.
The 300 SPS can be used with .308, .300 and .223.
