SureFire’s Most-Affordable LED Flashlights – Ever

From my bud Ron Canfield over at SUREFIRE:

This is huge for us. We’re known not only for high quality, but high prices. It’s the cost of doing your own design, engineering, R&D, product development, testing, manufacturing, assembly, and distribution. Oh yeah, and doing it in the USA.

G2X - $ 55.00

We’re not talking WalMart prices here, but SureFire’s least expensive LED flashlight was $69. Now, we have a new series that starts at $55 for 200 lumens of light. That’s extremely competitive with the other brands you know and maybe love who are also trying to produce at the highest level.

6PX - $ 79.00

We’ve simply cut costs, but kept it domestic. Who does that? We’re expecting these to begin shipping 10/1.

The G2X features a Nitrolon® polymer body and tailcap with an aluminum bezel while the 6PX’s body components are entirely aluminum. Each model comes in either the ‘Tactical’ models which is a single stage, 200 lumen output, and comes with a momentary activation tailcap switch. Twist for constant on. The ‘Pro’ models feature a low output 15-lumen stage that comes on first, then can be clicked over to the 200 lumen high output stage with a clicky style tailcap switch.
