At tomorrow’s SHOT Show range day, SureFire will unveil the new WARCOMP.


Available in 5.56 and 7.62 versions for use with the SureFire SOCOM Suppressor. They are telling me that this is the first real flash hider that actually counters muzzle rise and still has great signature reduction. I can’t wait to see it for myself. They’ll also be demonstrating at their range Monday evening because at night is where they shine.

SureFire Names Jeff Barger VP Of Marketing And Commercial/Consumer Sales

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high performance illumination tools, suppressors and tactical products, Is pleased to announce Jeff Barger as our new Vice President of Marketing and Commercial/Consumer Sales. Jeff will be responsible for expansion of all sales and marketing channels.

“I believe we can successfully drive SureFire’s growth into key segments of the commercial/retail markets that are high margin and large volume due to my background in both the industry and retail channels that coincide with SureFire’s product categories,” said Jeff Barger, SureFire’s VP of Marketing and Commercial/Consumer Sales.

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).

Jeffrey holds BA’s in Economics and Political Science from Denison University in Granville, Ohio and Corporate Finance from Northeastern University in Burlington, Massachusetts. Jeff is an outdoor hobbyist actively enjoying skiing, target shooting, hunting, fishing and forestry.

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.
