Today Surefire announced their latest weapon light, the XSC. The XSC is the first light designed specifically for slimline rails found on the Glock 48/43X. Two additional variants are currently in production to support the SIG Sauer P365XL, and the Springfield Armory Hellcat.
The body of the light is constructed of aluminum making for a scant 1.7oz overall weight for the Surefire XSC. The battery is a rechargeable LiPo that offers 30 minutes of run time. Batteries can be recharged while removed from the light, or still attached. Shooters will appreciate a battery life indicator to help them from pulling a dead light.
Output is fairly anemic, with only 350 lumens and 2,000 candela. This certainly blows away micro lights such as the Streamlight TLR-6, but pales in comparison to comparable options like the TLR-7. The light is activated via rear mounted paddles, offering either constant or momentary light.
MSRP on the Surefire XSC is $329.00. You can find yours >>HERE<<
Surefire XSC Press Release
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 & 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.
