The Surefire x300 Weapon Light is, quite literally, a brilliant piece of tactical gear for night time action.
This Led flashlight produces 500 lumens in a slightly off white greenish tinge which enhances the human eye vision range. The Surefire weapon light is built to military specs and has integral fittings for mounting to hand guns or carbines equipped with picatinny rails, or universal mounting rails. The x300 weaponlight is equipped with a very convenient switch in the end cap at the back of the torch. The switch gives the option of a short momentary flash or constant on, a feature that many look for in torches.
Although designed as a weapon light, many have found that these could be equally useful as torches for throwing into the rucksack on a weekend camping expedition. Surefire has a great selection of mount types, so one could even attach it to a walking or hiking stick for handiness.
The beam and precision reflector provide a really great penetrating beam, while also giving a nice peripheral illumination area close by as well.
Some of the uses for the Surefire x300 Weapon Light
Folks who perhaps are living on their own can feel a better sense of security when they sleep with a bright blinding light to hand next to their bed. For them, the Surefire weaponlight would be ideal to dazzle and confuse a would-be perpetrator while getting into defense mode or taking evasive action.
This LED flashlight is great if you are looking for that lost pet in the garden at night, or checking out who or what is rattling the garbage bin.
If you are spending the weekend in remote or rugged terrain, then this led light will help you keep to the path during a late return to the campsite.
Local law and order guys are able to easily mount the Surefire x300 onto their weapons and still have easy access to the tail cap switch. The switch offers momentary or constant on switching.
There is also a plug in extra accessory tape switch and lead for optimizing the easy access switching function. This type of LED flashlight has become very popular with the Airsoft warriors when engaging in anti terror combat scenarios, and certainly adds some realism to their tactical gear.
