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.

SureFire Shipping New 1000 Lumen Maximus Headlamp

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Fountain Valley, CA —SureFire LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is now shipping the newly updated HS3 Maximus™ headlamp. The SureFire Maximus™ rechargeable variable-output LED headlamp delivers an amazing 1,000 lumens of light—enough to illuminate your entire campsite. If that’s too much light, you can dial it down to 1 lumen—or any level in-between—for closer work, preserving your dark-adapted vision, or extending the runtime. 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.

FirstSpear Friday Focus – OEM Partner Series – SureFire

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Occassionally, we use the FirstSpear Friday Focus to highlight one of their OEM partners. This is one of those occassions, and this week we are looking at the work FS does for SureFire.

For quite awhile I’ve known that FirstSpear manufactured the SureFire High Capacity Magazine Pouches but what I didn’t realize is how long the two brands have been working together. They’ve been cooperating steadily since 2011.

Why did SureFire ultimately go with FirstSpear manufacturing?
First and foremost, we chose FirstSpear due to the high quality of product they produce. FirstSpear constantly innovates, and never cuts corners, which are attributes we at SureFire relate to closely. Additionally, their fast pace of manufacturing and competitive pricing made the decision easy. We feel the collaboration between SureFire and FirstSpear works well, as both companies simply want to build the best products possible for our customers and warfighters.

Why is it important that the Suppressor Pouches were “Made in the USA”?
SureFire SOCOM suppressor pouches need to be “Made in the USA” due to The Berry Amendment. We are required to comply with The Berry Amendment to be eligible for certain government contracts, specifically the SOCOM contract we currently hold. The Berry Amendment is a statutory requirement that restricts the Department of Defense (DoD) from using funds appropriated or otherwise available to DoD for procurement of food, clothing, fabrics, fibers, yarns, other made-up textiles, and hand or measuring tools that are not grown, reprocessed, reused, or produced in the United States.

Interestingly, FS also provides the headbands for the Maximus Head Lamp.

While the SSV line of holsters isn’t manufactured for SureFire, FS does offer models compatible with the X300 series weapon lights. Soon, they’ll be introducing versions which will accept the SureFire XC1.

SureFire Scout Lights Now Authorized for USAF Use

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

We just found out from Quantico Tactical that the SureFire Scout Light is now authorized for use with USAF weapons. For years, the only authorized weapon light for rifles and carbines was the Insight M3X. These SureFire Scout Light Kits are authorized for use on ALL M4/M4A1s throughout the Air Force, not just Security Forces and are a unit purchase. I’m told told pricing is very competitive for the SureFire light and a unit can get the aluminum light and remote switch for less than the incumbent light. This is big news for Airmen, regardless of command. I know EOY is right around the corner, but this is something worth looking at. 

The most recent USAF Small Arms and Light Weapons (SA/LW) Accessories List (Dated 15 April 2016) authorizes the below two configurations of the battle-proven Surefire Scout Light for use on all M4/M4A1s throughout the entire US Air Force.

M600 KIT 01 Consists of a Surefire M600V Scout Light coupled with a DS-SR07D-IT tailcap/remote switch. This combination gives you 350 Lumens of Visible Light and 120mW of IR illumination in a 7.2 ounce rugged hardcoat anodized package. The tailcap/tapeswitch controls both your Scout Light and PEQ-15. Additional feature include momentary or constant on via the rail-grabber waterproof switch, clock on/off on the tailcap and a system disable feature. Mounts directly to a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail and uses two CR123A batteries.

M600 KIT 02 consists of a Surefire M600U coupled with a UE07 tape switch. For those whose mission requires only visible light, this combination gives you 600 lumens of visible, focused light, a 7” remote tape switch and Surefire’s rugged durability. Mounts directly to a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail and uses two CR123A batteries.

Both configurations are available on Quantico Tactical’s GSA schedule, or for those who wish to use MILSTRIP/MIPRs via Quantico’s Defense Logstics Agency TLS Contract for Special Operational Equipment.

Quantico is running an introductory special GSA price of $399.25 for KIT 01 (Visible and IR) and $250.26 for KIT 01 (Visible).
