First Look: SureFire XC2 Light and Laser Sight

Designed as the smallest combination attachment yet made by the company, the new SureFire XC2 light and laser sight provides handgun owners with a single-unit LED flashlight combined with a durable red laser, providing illumination and target assistance with a single push of the button.

This SureFire XC2 sight is built with a compact body made from durable aerospace-grade aluminum and treated with a hard-anodized finish in order to stand up to the rigors of daily carry. Located at the rear of the unit are two switch tabs, located on the left and right for ambidextrous use. The entire unit is designed to protect against exposure to water and weather, thanks to its gasket-sealed design.

The unit runs off a commonly available AAA battery, which sits in the housing accessed at the front of the unit. Changing the battery only requires users to unscrew the front-facing compartment door, ensuring that the unit can stay attached to the Picatinny frame rail of any pistol and eliminating the need for rezeroing. Deploying both the 300-lumen LED light and 5 milliwatt laser in constant-on mode allows for a maximum battery life of up to 30 minutes.

Built with the company's MaxVision beam, the 300-lumen light on the SureFire XC2 is designed for threat-identification at short distances, throwing a wide beam to provide necessary area lighting. The laser is also ideally suited for personal-defense, providing a 635nm laser that won't ever need rezeroing, thanks to the company's specially designed adjustment screws built to stay seated under heavy recoil. The unit is ideally suited for a concealed-carry setup, thanks to its short 2.5-inch length and its light 2.1-ounce weight, including battery.

The SureFire XC2 light and laser combination provides consumers with both momentary- and constant-on modes, actuated by the two tabs located at the rear of the unit. The XC2 retails at a suggested price of $449.
