    Default The SureFire 6PX/G2X Tactical and 6PX/G2X Pro Thread

    Just got an email from LAPG about these new lights.... hard to believe msrp is $55 / $65 / $69 and $79 for them. They seem to have a really good lumen rating as well.




    Found a few more pictures

    Hard to believe they will outperform the LX2 and E2DL (match lumen - longer run time) at 1/3 the price. If that's MSRP, I expect the price to be slightly less once they are released. For that price I'll probably have to buy several to keep in strategic locations - EDC / Go Bag , vehicles, and bedrooms.

    Not bad, especially at those prices. I really like the switch and body design, not so sure about the anti-roll bezel though. But at $69/$79 for the 6P I wouldn´t care. Unfortunatelly these will end up for at least 99 Euro (~$126) over here in germany.

    I adjusted the thread title so we can make this the thread to discuss this new models from SureFire.

    SureFire's styling certainly has changed.

    Hmmm...these give a close up of the bezel...if they're anything like my KX4 (I took the bezel ring off yesterday), the lens is glued to the rim of the reflector, and about all we'd be able to do with these is install diffuser's from the G2/G3D's. Looks like SF's slowly taking away the "aftermarket"-ability of their lights, especially with these models, which sucks for us, but is an honest, and smart move by them.

    As long as they don't do this with their incan models though, I think we're safe...

    200lm for 2.5hrs on the Nitrolon single mode model and 200lm for 1.5 on the Nitrolon multi-stage model. Wait... what?

    thats probably a typo.

    I still wonder why the dual level 6PX is only 79, whereas the lx2 more than 100bucks extra.

    the grooves on the 6px really reminds me of the simliar grooves on the M6.

    might have to get one to give away

    IMHO, completely different kettles of chips - not least because the LX2 has the two-stage push button pressure switch UI rather than the dual output clickie UI.

    I'd be a bit miffed if someone took away my LX2 and gave me a 6PX.

    Think this light will still fit in the Z70 holster? Also, why do you think it is not on the surefire website yet?

    I'm wondering why they are so cheap. A terrible thought has crossed my mind that Surefire may be producing lights in China, etc.... I have no idea if that is the reason mind you, but I certainly hope not.

    Although it might be possible that they were outsourcing labour to China, another thought crossed my mind. Some moderator wrote in another post regarding a cheaper light means that they are cutting costs somewhere else. It might be possible that it is through labour, but it might also be in the processing, the quality of materials, build quality, etc...

    Surefire made in China? very doubtful. They have a company legacy of "made in USA". I think SF is trying to reach more of the masses now because of rising competition from companies like 4Sevens and several others. If the prices on these new lights are for real, and the specs are accurate, they should be very popular. Im interested.

    They have mentioned that the new designs are cheaper to make due to the design of the head. To me it looks as if the head and body are one part, and the electronics are installed through the head... I don't know if that is correct, that is just the appearance that the images give me.

    That would make them cheaper to produce though. One piece, only one lot of threads etc etc.

    I have a stratum and love it.... and have gotten some good use out of it over the past couple months. Look at these like a good compliment to your arsenal, not something that makes you regret a prior purchase. I will likely get a 6PX pro.

    I love surefires and have bought quite a few over the last few months. I look forward to these lights and more
    Surefire M3LT - Surefire LX2 - Surefire E1B - Surefire Stratum - Olight SR90 - Lumapower D-mini VX Ultra - Eagletac T20C2 MKII - Nitecore D10 SP - Quark Mini AA - Jetbeam RRT-3 ... ​The list has grown larger than I care to admit

    Hey Al, I hate to ask you the question that is in the air, but are these made outside the United States?

    As already stated, Surefire has built quite a reputation on their lights being made in the USA.

    Are they USA made or not?

    Or they could be taking a lose while making strategic step into another market. Its difficult to sell a $200 flashlight to someone who is used to a $12 dollar maglite. However if Surefire can compete with Fenix for the more reasonable entry level $80 market, then the amount of units sold can off set initial loses. As well as rope in some unlikely customers. You'll first buy a P3D then a TK45, it generally doesn't go the other way around.

    I honestly don't think they will cut down on quality and reverse about 30 years of company philosophy and direction.

    Surefire is a defense contractor first, their prices aren't aimed at the general public. They are probably used to selling in massive quantities and giving discounts based on that. Since these lights are aimed at the general public it makes sense for them to lower their price per unit. I doubt that the reduction in price will have a corresponding reduction in quality, its just not Surefire.

    So, what will these do to the marketing of the 6PL, G2L, Stratum, etc? Why undercut an established model?

    I'm guessing they're manufactured overseas (and not to cause a ripple, but try to find a "Made in the USA" on a SF box or enclosed literature) and that volume will allow SF to be sold in a more mainstream marketplace, and not just internet or copshops.

    There's more to a light than its output.

    Sigh Re: The SureFire 6PX/G2X Tactical and 6PX/G2X Pro Thread

    I just ordered the 6px pro from lapg and they charged me for shipping even though it's supposed to be free has anyone else had that happen?

    Seems like these are going to obsolete most of there product line.

    These lights and the price sure have me interested. I just opened a malkoff m61 today and really like it in my 6p so i'll probably have to wait a little while but the standout of the new surefires for me is the nitrolon with 2 levels of output. Something about that seems to be saying "buy me"
