Sneak Peek – Prototype SureFire Suppressor for Subsonic .300

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Prototype Suppressor

Last week, I had an opportunity to fire a Hodge Defense Systems AU Mod 1 fitted with a .300 upper that was equipped with a prototype SureFire suppressor for use with subsonic .300 ammo.

I was shooting at a walking target about 75 yards out. The ‘ping’ from the hits was louder than the rifle. As you can hear from the video, I was taken aback by how quiet it was. Hodge guns are always a joy to shoot but I really had a great time with this set up.

Look for release, Summer 2014 from SureFire.

(Before anyone asks, the cap is a Slangvel M43 in Kryptek Highlander, the Flak Jacket eyepro Oakley in woodland King’s Camo, the T1 mount by Seekins, the handguard from BCM, magazine is Magpul PMAG 40 AR/M4 Gen M3, it’s a Sordin headset, and I’m wearing a Boss Rugby by Velocity Systems.)

SureFire - 7 Reasons

SureFire In The Movies

Friday, January 24th, 2014

SureFire illumination tools have been featured in some of the best war, cop, and action movies ever made. (It all started with the red-laser equipped handgun in The Terminator.) This use of SureFire gear is no coincidence because it is the top choice of the elite military and law enforcement teams portrayed. And propmasters rely on SureFire’s legendary quality and reliability for these multi-million-dollar productions. Enjoy!

SHOT Show – SureFire XVL2

Monday, January 20th, 2014

We continue our SHOT Show coverage with something interesting from SureFire. For those of you unfamiliar with SureFire’s naming convention, the XVL2 uses a X-series body, a Vampire head that manually switches between white and IR light, as well as 2 lasers. In this case it’s IR & Visible Red but they are considering offering an IT & Green model once they nail down the final color for the X400 Green. Additionally, SureFire is is planning to offer this as both a restricted mil version as well as a civilian legal Class I version.


The XVL2 is a single cell 3v light so admittedly, it is only expected to throw 120 lumens for the light component and 100 mW for the laser. The lasers are slaved to one another so when you adjust one for zero, they both move.

As for switching, the unit boasts a top mounted Dome switch ala the PEQ-15 as well as a port for a Pressure switch. Additionally, SureFire will offer DG-style switches.

There is currently still no hard launch date for the XLV2 but the fact that it was in the new product showcase tell us that they do plan to release it this year.

Participate in the American Silencer Association Silent Auction at SHOT Show

Friday, January 10th, 2014

The American Silencer Association is conducting a silent auction at SHOT Show to raise money for advocacy and lobbying efforts in 2014.

Help them by supporting our industry, and supporting the association.


The auction will begin on Tuesday, and end at the close of the show on Thursday. Winners will be contacted on Friday. Each auction item will be located in the donor’s booth.

Finally, a use for tinfoil we can agree with. Kyle Defoor recommends you use it to shim older, loose fitting, X-series lights from SureFire.
