Announcing the XSC Family of Micro-Compact Handgun Weaponlights from SureFire

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce the release of the all-new XSC family of micro-compact handgun weaponlights.

We all know violent crime happens at night, and yet a premium-grade weaponlight for the best concealment guns on the market didn’t exist. Until now. Extremely compact and virtually indestructible, the new rechargeable SureFire XSC family delivers intense white light, allowing you to face the dark with confidence. Its micro-footprint doesn’t hamper concealability, so you’ll have it with you when you need it most.

There are three models in the lineup, each precisely engineered and purpose-built for a seamless & secure fit to each host handgun. The XSC-A is made for the Glock 43X & 48 with accessory rail, the XSC-P365 is for the SIG SAUER P365 &amp P365 XL and the XSC-HELLCAT is for the Springfield Armory Hellcat line of handguns. Less than 2 inches long and weighing under 2 ounces, the XSC provides an immense force multiplier to each host handgun with no compromise in concealability.

Intuitive, ambidextrous switching provides ease of momentary-or constant-on activation with one or two hands. The XSC’s premium LED delivers 350 lumens of intense white light via a parabolic reflector, creating a concentrated hot-spot with significant throw and surrounding spill. Made from rugged aerospace aluminum, the body is Mil-Spec hard anodized for scratch and corrosion resistance. The XSC is gasket sealed for weatherproof and waterproof reliability, and it is IPX7-rated.

The XSC is rechargeable via a quick-detach lithium polymer battery, and can be changed without removing the XSC from the host pistol. The battery charger is included with purchase, and it is capable of charging two batteries simultaneously. Each battery features a LED fuel gauge that displays charge level with the press of a button. If you’re serious about personal protection, there’s no excuse. The XSC is your only option.

Improved TNVC/Steiner TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 IN-STOCK!

Monday, August 24th, 2020

Redlands, CA

Introduced at SHOT Show 2020, the TNVC/Steiner TOR-MINI IR Variable Power Control IR aiming laser has quickly become one of our most popular products and they have been flying off the shelves! We’re happy to announce the release of a new (v)2 variant, NOW BACK IN-STOCK!

While the original TOR-MINI IR crossbolts were provided a secure user configurable mounting system, they were a little bit more difficult to install properly. The newest TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2s feature an more user-friendly, improved rail mounting system. Instead of the two crossbolts on the original TOR-MINI IR, these units feature a more robust rail clamp and mounting system, including a user-configurable recoil lug that can be positioned in one of six (6) different positions, allowing the TOR-MINI IR to fit almost any rail interface as well as allowing the user to fine-tune it’s positioning on the rail.

Moreover, the rail clamp itself has been enlarged and simplified, making it easier to install, and two slotted screws replace the long Allen screws in the initial versions.

With an MSRP of $269 and weighing less than 2 ounces, the TOR-MINI IR was designed to offer a miniaturized, budget friendly Class I IR aiming laser to the market, and is equally at home on pistols, long guns, SMGs and PDWs, and even on thermal devices and spotting scopes! The TOR-MINI IR Variable Power Control features a “step down” feature that allows the user to easily select between 0.7, 0.4, and 0.2 mW outputs by holding down the activation paddle attenuating the aiming dot size and bloom based on range, target size, and ambient lighting conditions.

These new improved TOR-MINI IR (v)2 are now in full production and in-stock and ready to ship today. Dealer inquires are also welcome!
