It's no secret that I like flashlights, especially high lumen count lights from Surefire. The new SureFire G2Z-MV and the G2X-MV have just been announced featuring an 800-lumen MaxVision beam, making me a very happy person. Why am I happy about a new light? The introduction of the high lumen handhelds tells me we might possibly see a new Scout light from Surefire in the near future that crests that 1000 lumen threshold. I sure would love to replace my aging Streamlight RailMount 2 lights with something more reliable.
The new lights will feature a polymer body and a pushbutton activation switch on the rear of the light just like you would expect from a SureFire handheld light. SureFire gave the G2X-MV light a high output mode of 800 lumens that throws light evenly thanks to a MaxVision style reflector or a low output setting of 15 lumens that is perfect for map reading or other tasks. The SureFire G2Z-MV has only one mode making it more suited for "tactical" use.
