SureFire is re-launching the SureFire XSC family of rechargeable micro-compact handgun weaponlights. The COVID-19-related supply problems with the first launch are over, and now the XSC is once again available for sale.The light has a small footprint, which helps to keep your firearm concealable while still providing the added security of a duty-grade weaponlight. The light measures less than 2 inches in length and weighs just 1.7 ounces, which means you’ll hardly notice it's there until you really need it.

Every model in the XSC family seamlessly and securely attaches to specific handgun models: The XSC-A fits the Glock 43X & 48 pistols that have an accessory rail as well as Glock 43X MOS and 48 MOS models. The XSC-P365 fits the SIG Sauer P365, P365 X RomeoZero, P365 SAS, P365 XL, and P365 XL RomeoZero. The last model, the XSC-Hellcat, fits the Springfield Armory Hellcat and Hellcat RDP guns.

The XSC's ambidextrous switching offers intuitive momentary- or constant-on activation using either one or two hands. The premium LED inside the light delivers 350 lumens of white light via SureFire’s parabolic reflector technology, which creates a concentrated hotspot that has significant throw and surrounding spill. The resulting beam pattern provides excellent illumination at target distances up to 25 yards.

The body of the XSC is made from aerospace aluminum and is MIL-A-8625 Type III, Class 2 hard-anodized for scratch and corrosion resistance. The lithium polymer battery can easily be changed without removing the weapon light from the host handgun, and every XSC comes with a SureFire cradle charger that is capable of charging two batteries simultaneously. Each battery features a LED fuel-gauge that displays charge level with the press of a button.

MSRP for the XSC weapon light is $329, and more information on this light as well as other products from Surefire is available at surefire.com.

Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down.
