With an MSRP of $70, the G2X Tactical is among the least expensive models in SureFire’s lineup of professional-grade tactical illumination tools. But being budget-minded doesn’t mean having to settle for a cheap import flashlight. We’re well aware of the dangers faced by our American heroes in uniform, from city streets to the most desolate locations on the planet. With so much at stake, you can’t afford to risk it all on unreliable equipment. The G2X Tactical takes unreliable completely out of the equation.

Just like SureFire’s flagship flashlight models, the entire G2 line is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. with premium features and absolutely zero compromises to SureFire’s legendary quality and workmanship. It’s more than rugged enough to get you to the end of every mission, every watch, or every shift.

The single-output G2X Tactical starts with the highest-quality LED available. Driven by sophisticated electronics, it delivers 600 lumens of penetrating white light shaped by a parabolic reflector. SureFire reflectors are made from CNC-machined aluminum instead of the stamped metal or molded plastic found in other brands. As a result, they exhibit superior strength, heat transfer capabilities and geometric exactness, and they produce a bright central beam that’s well suited for medium- to long-range identification in the darkest environments.

Its robust and durable polymer body is mated with an aluminum bezel, the latter providing excellent thermal management that prevents overheating when the light is activated for long periods of time. Polymer is especially effective because it won’t transfer cold to the hand in frigid environments like aluminum will. The G2X Tactical is ergonomically shaped for positive manipulation in hot or cold weather conditions, and it is IPX7-rated to maintain maximum reliability if it should become submerged in water or subjected to wet conditions. And, if necessary, polymer is easier on the teeth than aluminum if you need to go “hands free.”

Fast, dependable and intuitive switching is critical in a crisis situation SureFire introduced the orientation-independent tailcap more than three decades ago, and today it is copied by virtually every tactical light manufacturer in the industry. The G2X Tactical’s simple click-type tailcap switch suits the needs of military, uniformed law enforcement and first responders by offering the choice of pressing the tailcap switch for momentary-on or clicking it for constant-on.

In addition to being an ideal handheld for law enforcement use, the G2X Tactical can also serve as a budget rifle-mounted WeaponLight when accessorized with an accessory mount such as the Magpul Rail Light mount.

While the G2X Tactical is a proven tool for law enforcement use, SureFire has developed a comprehensive line of G2 models that excel at a variety of tasks. From the multi-output G2X Pro to the G2 CombatLights designed for easy activation with a drawn pistol. There’s a SureFire G2 that will get the job done. For more information, visit SureFire.com.
