The SureFire XC2-IRC

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, wants to shed some light on the XC2-A-IRC. Before we get in to it, you should know this product probably isn’t for you. This product was designed for a specific end-user who had a requirement for an ultra compact infrared (IR) light & IR aiming laser combination. As such, the XC2-A-IRC is SureFire’s smallest, lightest dedicated IR light and laser combination. Its recoil-proof LED is focused by a multi-faceted reflector to create a broad, 850-nanometer infrared MaxVision Beam® that’s perfect for enhancing the capability and image quality of modern night vision goggles (NVGs). Its 845-nanometer infrared laser stands out when viewed with NVGs and, once zeroed, rarely needs re-zeroing thanks to adjustment screws that stand up to the effects of recoil. It can be powered by a AAA lithium, NiMH or alkaline battery, and its ambidextrous switching provides both momentary- and constant-on activation for ultimate controllability. Ultracompact, lightweight and rugged, the XC2-A-IRC is built to rule the night.
