SHOT Show 17 – SureFire Masterfire

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I did not see this one coming. SureFire has introduced a Polymer Holster, designed to be used specifically with pistols equipped with their weapon lights.

The Masterfire Rapid Deploy Holster will fit most pistols because it uses a proprietary cam and lug system to grip the weapon light in two places to offer level 3 retention with primary and secondary lock systems. This means it will also work with suppressor equipped pistols.

You may notice and “On/Off” Switch at the side of the holster. When selected, this functionality will turn the weapon light on when the pistol is drawn.

Above, you can see the thumb button. Once it’s depressed, you rock the grip of the weapon slightly forward as you bring the pistol into action.

The Masterfire is designed to work with these lights. You’re getting a sneak peek at some upcoming Polymer weapon lights from SureFire.

SureFire To Launch All-New XC2 Weaponlight At 2017 SHOT Show

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, will be launching its brand-new XC2 at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The XC2 is the next evolution of SureFire’s game changing, ultra-compact pistol lights and builds upon the success of its predecessor, the XC1. It features the same impressive 200-lumen output as the XC1, but also has a 635nm highly visible red-laser. The addition of this laser in conjunction with its 200-lumen white light, makes the XC2 the ultimate compact accessory for concealed-carry. The XC2’s momentary and constant-on switches also feature improved ergonomics, further improving the weaponlight’s overall performance.

Now those who carry concealed not only have the capability to positively identify threats, but also improved low-light target acquisition and the ability to fire from non-standard shooting positions.

To see the XC2, and other brand-new products by SureFire, stop by the SureFire booth (#13968), located on the second level of the main hall of the Sands Expo Center during the 2017 NSSF SHOT Show, January 17 – 20.

How cool is that? Before it was known as SureFire, there was Laser Devices. Love that on/off switch.

SureFire – 2211 Polymer Wristlight

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is now shipping the new 2211® Polymer wristlight. The rechargeable SureFire 2211® WristLight is a lightweight, cutting-edge tool that provides hands-free illumination for a broad range of lowlight scenarios. The 2211® is a phenomenal alternative to a headlamp or handheld, and can be used for walking your dog, EDC, and even in conjunction with a firearm.

When strapped to your support-side wrist, the 2211 naturally aligns with a handgun when the weapon is held with a standard two-handed grip, projecting plenty of light for threat identification at close to medium ranges. The WristLight utilizes our MaxVision Beam™ which creates a seamless wall of white light at three output levels: 300, 60, and 15 lumens. The first two output levels provide a tactical advantage by overwhelming an aggressor’s dark-adapted vision. The lowest output level is perfect for tasks that don’t require so much light, such as loading gear. The output series is programmable to go from high to low or from low to high.

The SureFire Maximus™ rechargeable variable-output LED headlamp delivers an amazing 1,000 lumens of light—enough to illuminate your entire campsite.

A large knurled dial permits output control with one hand—even if it’s gloved or numbed by cold. One hand can also aim the light right where you want it since the light assembly rotates up and down 90 degrees.
