SureFire XSC, a micro-compact, duty-grade SureFire WeaponLight
After being delayed due to a battery issue related to Covid-19, the SureFire XSC is available for purchase. The rechargeable XSC is designed for the latest micro-compact concealed carry guns from GLOCK, SIG, and Springfield Armory.

SureFire X-Series WeaponLights have a proven history of providing maximum performance and durability in the most compact form factors, and the SureFire XSC is no exception.

The XSC not only answers the need for a dedicated WeaponLight that fits the latest generation of micro-compact and subcompact concealed-carry handguns, but it’s also the correct answer. It’s a specifically engineered, duty-grade ultracompact WeaponLight for the game-changing concealed-carry models developed by GLOCK, SIG SAUER, and Springfield Armory.

SureFire pioneered the dedicated WeaponLight more than 35 years ago, and it’s a fact that more professionals trust SureFire than any other brand. Along the way, we’ve made it our mission to educate firearms owners on the necessity of having a dedicated weapon-mounted light on their firearms.

 If you’re a first-time firearms owner, then beyond training to familiarize yourself with your weapon, you must understand that shooting requires decision-making based on the information your eyes take in. It’s even more critical if you should ever have to bear your firearm in a high-stress, self-defense situation in a low-light environment, which is where most crime seems to occur. First and foremost, a SureFire WeaponLight provides high-intensity illumination for positive target identification so you can have as much information as possible to make the best possible decision when it matters most. It can also buy you more precious decision-making time by temporarily disorienting the aggressor and disrupting their night-adapted vision. They may choose to fight, or they may flee, but either way, a dedicated WeaponLight can give you a crucial advantage and peace of mind in a life-threatening situation.

SureFire XSC delivers 350 lumens of white light
The XSC delivers 350 lumens of white light, using SureFire’s Parabolic Reflector technology. It is ideal for target identification at ranges up to 25 yards, providing useful information that can save lives.

The XSC provides this advantage in the least intrusive way possible. Measuring less than 2 inches in length and weighing a mere 1.7 ounces, it’s the most compact WeaponLight available, so it won’t hamper the concealability or the handling of your weapon. Every ounce counts, and the XSC’s minimal weight and small footprint are even more appealing now that GLOCK, SIG, and Springfield have released models that include or readily accept red dot optics. There are three models in the XSC family, each designed to seamlessly and securely attach to the proprietary rails of these firearms:

The XSC-A fits railed GLOCK 43X, 43X MOS, 48, and 48 MOS models.
The XSC-P365 fits the SIG SAUER P365, P365 X RomeoZero, P365 SAS, P365 XL, and P365 XL RomeoZero.
The XSC-HELLCAT fits the Springfield Armory Hellcat and Hellcat RDP.

The XSC is the culmination of over four decades of SureFire expertise in tactical illumination tools. It’s the smallest handgun-mounted WeaponLight available today. Yet, it yields nothing to our larger WeaponLight models in terms of performance, reliability, and long-term durability in the most extreme environments. Its ergonomic, ambidextrous switching offers easy, intuitive, and instantaneous momentary- or constant-on activation with either hand.

SureFire XSC doesn't hamper concealability
The XSC’s small footprint doesn’t hamper concealability, making it ideal for everyday carry.

Among its many innovative features, the XSC is also the first SureFire WeaponLight to feature a dedicated battery that you can remove for recharging, an essential feature for those who train with their gear. Its B12 lithium polymer battery detaches quickly without requiring you to remove the WeaponLight body from the host handgun. Every XSC comes with a SureFire CH21 cradle charger capable of charging two B12 batteries simultaneously, so you can always keep one ready to go. Monitoring the charge level is as simple as checking the B12’s onboard LED fuel gauge with the press of a button.

The XSC’s premium LED is a true overachiever in close quarters, delivering 350 lumens of intense white light. SureFire’s Parabolic Reflector technology shapes the beam to provide a concentrated hot spot with significant throw and ample spill light to help keep you aware of your surroundings. FBI statistics indicate that the average gunfight occurs at a distance of 3 yards; the XSC is ideal for illuminating targets up between zero and 25 yards away or disrupting a potential assailant’s night-adapted vision, giving you a significant advantage when things go bump in the night.

The XSC also affords rugged durability to match its high-performance optic. Its CNC-machined aerospace-grade aluminum body can stand up to plenty of abuse, and SureFire coats every XSC body with MIL-A-8625 Type III, Class 2 hard anodizing for scratch and corrosion resistance. Gasket sealing ensures that the XSC remains weatherproof to IPX4 conditions.

With nearly four decades of SureFire innovation behind it, the SureFire XSC is the quintessential concealed carry WeaponLight. If you own one of the handguns it’s designed for, and you don’t have an XSC, now there’s no need to ask yourself why you need one.
