A weapon light or flashlight is a great way to gather positive identification or to investigate your environment in low-light situations. The weapon light market has many options to find a quality weapon light for your concealed carry gun. Surefire is proud to announce its new XSC-B Subcompact WeaponLight.

Product Description

Have No Excuses. The mean streets are no place to be making excuses about your protective equipment. The SureFire XSC is a no-compromise WeaponLight that’s ready to help you defeat the darkness. If you carry one of the popular higher-capacity micro-compacts from SIG SAUER or Springfield Armory or the GLOCK Slimline Series, we’ve engineered the SureFire XSC specifically for you. If you carry a Universal-railed sub-compact, such as the Smith & Wesson M&P, Springfield Armory XD, H&K VP9SK Walther PPQ, the XSC-B is the right choice. Extremely compact and virtually indestructible, every XSC delivers intense white light, shaped by a hybrid parabolic reflector with plenty of reach and spill for positive target identification in the darkest confines, so you can read and react to any crisis with confidence. Its micro-footprint doesn’t hamper concealability, so you’ll have it with you when you need it most. It’s also rechargeable, with a unique lithium-polymer battery that you can swap on the fly. Intuitive, ambidextrous switching provides instant one-finger control of momentary-on or constant-on activation to help you control the situation. The XSC’s rugged, aerospace aluminum body is Mil-Spec hard anodized for scratch and corrosion resistance. If you carry concealed and you’re serious about personal protection, there’s no excuse. A SureFire XSC is your only option.
