Surefire G2X LE Dual-Output LED
Specially designed to meet the needs of law enforcement professionals, the SureFire G2X LE leads with high output on its first press or click. It features a high-performance LED that generates a max output of 600 lumens of blinding white light focused by a parabolic reflector into a versatile beam with significant reach and ample surround light for maintaining good situational awareness, crucial in law enforcement. At its lower output the G2X LE produces a useful 15-lumen beam that provides extended runtime on a set of batteries, for tasks that don’t require as much light.
A click-style tactical tailcap switch controls the light’s output — simply press or click to unleash all 600 lumens in momentary or constant-on mode, an essential feature for law enforcement applications where instant access to maximum output provides a tactical advantage. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for G2X LE’s lower-output 15-lumen beam.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Excellent quality, sturdy build
Before purchasing these types of flashlights, you need to consider the conditions in which you will use them. I got the older Surefire 6P (single output incandescent) years ago before the LED bulbs came into full use. The LED bulbs are MUCH better overall. I then purchased Surefire Fury (dual output - first click is low, second is high). Then I got a Fenix PD35 TAC (various outputs including strobe) followed by this one, the Surefire G2X LE (dual output - first click is high, second is low). In terms of home defense, the G2X LE is better with the first click being on a high. In terms of a more focused beam, the Fury wins that designation. If I had a home intruder, I'd want the G2X LE in hand. At night when the dogs are barking at something on the farm, and I want to see better, I'll usually pick the Fury. So, as I said - think about what you want to do with it and choose the flashlight with the best features.
Pistol Has No Rails No Problem
I have some Old Revolvers and a Colt 1911 and have no rails to mount Lights. Then a friend of mine from the AirForce SF gave me the Idea of this SUREFIRE Flashlight, and because it's so little, I can use it, on one hand, to light a target in front of me and the other to hold my Pistol like in Law enforcement and I was Sold to the Idea and have used it ever since. This little Flashlight has a button on the back to press when you're aiming at target and release it when not in use. This is a GREAT Product. Thumbs Up.
Surefire G2X LE
My first cr123 flashlight. I've wanted one for a while but didn't want to spend the money. Well, my sister gave me a gift card which meant this flashlight didn't cost me anything. The Surefire G2X LE flashlight itself is a lot brighter than the Maglite flashlights I am used to. A nice wide beam pattern with a good throw. I have dropped it a few times and it still functions. I thought Surefire was 100% made in the USA. But according to Surefire themselves they are not.
Dependable and durable
I mostly use light in my profession. It's a handy, compact size, but bright enough, I've never needed more. E.G., I shine a light on serial number plates in the back of the server cabinet or use it to distinguish the jack I need to plug into. I look for cable I.D.s under a raised floor. I have it with me in a holster almost always, and I use it nearly every day. I bought this one to replace the yellow G2 that had given me excellent service for many years. This first one worked perfectly until I took it apart to clean. The water from cleaning caused the inner barrel to corrode. I abraded what corrosion I dared and got it working again by putting anti-seize where the tail cap screws onto the barrel. It didn't work well so I went shopping for a replacement. This law enforcement model was the brightest and had the desirable tail cap switch. (The yellow one, I turn on and off by screwing and unscrewing the tail cap; I've never liked that.) While I waited for delivery of the new black G2x, my old yellow G2 began working correctly again. I actually prefer the old yellow G2 for poking around in the backs of equipment because of the chance of encountering power. (If you've never shorted a 48-volt telecom battery string, it's the same current and voltage as a D.C. arc welder. If you have shorted one, no explanation is necessary.) The yellow G2 has all plastic exposed surfaces, so it can't arc. This black G2X LE has an aluminum head that could short out the electric power. SureFire strongly recommends against putting an LED lamp into a plastic head because the plastic doesn't dissipate heat well. With the original incandescent lamp, you want to contain the filament's excitement because heat is what makes it work. Heat is the enemy of semiconductors, so you want to transfer the heat as rapidly as possible from the LED; aluminum's great for that. I ignored the recommendation on the yellow G2 and replaced the lamp with an LED. I avoid leaving the flashlight on for extended periods. The LED has never failed in spite of my heavy usage. Bottom line, it's a remarkably dependable tool.
Great little light
Very bright on high. I like the tail switch with momentary push-on and click-on for the steady beam. High-quality construction should last a very long time. Will use up batteries like any high-lumen flashlight but is worth it. I bought mine on sale, so it was an excellent value.
This is a great little tactical light. Built rugged, feels good in the hand, easy to use, and it is BRIGHT on the high setting. The G2X LE model puts the high output at first click, which is better for tactical defensive use, rather than other models that have a low output on first. A handy lifesaver, and you can't beat MidWay's low price and fast service. Received it within two days at standard shipping rates. Way to go Midway USA!
amazing light for the price
I've owned several flashlights from surefire and other manufactures, which is one of the simplest and easiest to carry and operate. The tail cap button is soft yet positive and makes switching from low to high easy and fast. On high, the 400 lumens is perfect for tactical/ LEO use. Not having a belt clip or lanyard point makes it smooth and snag-free. Anti-roll head helps keep it in place if you need to set it down as a work light. Overall its the perfect daily carry light for me, and I have had no issues with it to date.
