In the pantheon of SureFire illumination tools, the G2 line enjoys a place of respect even if it doesn’t necessarily occupy the top of the food chain.

There’s a good reason for that: SureFire steadfastly refuses to compromise on quality and workmanship in any of its products. The G2 is a professional-grade economy series of flashlights that decisively defeats cheap imports. That’s because — like every product bearing the SureFire name — G2 models feature SureFire’s trademark performance and versatility, while still delivering outstanding value.

SureFire G2X Tactical Beam Pattern
The SureFire G2 line provides extreme-duty performance and durability on a budget. Most G2 models feature SureFire’s parabolic reflector, which delivers a powerful central beam and ample spill light for long-range vision and excellent situational awareness.

The G2’s virtually indestructible and highly efficient LEDs deliver penetrating white light. Depending on the model you choose, this tactical illumination is shaped either by SureFire’s precision parabolic reflector or its proprietary MaxVision Beam®.

If it’s power you need, the G2 doesn’t disappoint. Parabolic reflector models deliver 600 lumens and 8700 candela in a brilliant central beam that’s well suited for medium- to long-range tasks. MaxVision Beam® G2s up the output to 800 lumens, with a smooth, rounded lighting pattern ideal for close- to medium-range use where plenty of peripheral light is necessary for increased situational awareness. SureFire’s dual-output G2 variants also include a 15-lumen task light that extends total run time.

The G2 family delivers this impressive illumination in a package engineered and built for hard use. Every G2 features a robust and durable polymer body, with an aluminum bezel for effective thermal management. The polymer is especially effective because it won’t transfer cold to the hand in frigid environments like aluminum will. And, if necessary, the polymer is easier on the teeth than aluminum if you should find yourself needing to go “hands free.” All G2 variants are ergonomically shaped for positive manipulation in hot or cold weather conditions, and the G2ZX and G2Z MV CombatLight models include grip rings for use with the Rogers-SureFire handgun/flashlight technique.

SureFire G2ZX with Glock 23 pistol
The SureFire G2ZX CombatLight is designed with an ergonomic grip ring, facilitating use of the Rogers-SureFire pistol technique.

Today, the orientation-independent tailcap switch SureFire introduced literally three decades ago is copied far and wide in the industry. Every G2 we offer features this ergonomic and reliable switching.  Choose from models like the G2X LE that click on and off, or those with our classic press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on operation, such as the G2Z CombatLight. The G2X Pro is available in a wide variety of colors — including Black, Foliage Green, Tan, and Yellow — to suit the needs of the military, uniformed law enforcement and first responders. The yellow color is also ideal for outdoor use where it can easily be spotted in a pack or if dropped on the ground.
