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

    I placed an order with BJ for the 6PX Pro and since I'm about to move thought I would call a couple days after to see when it would be shipped. I was then told it was backordered. I wasn't very happy. It doesn't say on their website and they don't have the customer service to send out an email to even let the recipient know to expect a delay.

    I just ordered a 4Sevens 123-2 R5 from 4Sevens at 11:15am Wednesday with priority shipping. I emailed at 11:40 to ensure it was in stock and they responded with a tracking # saying it had already shipped. That's good service!

    Just got home from work and had my 6PX Pro waiting for me. Just with the 20 or so minutes I've played with it I am sooooo happy with it. Don't let the lesser price fool you. This is an awesome light. Typical SF machining, anodizing, and really bright. Almost matches my LX2 in throw and that's with a reflector and not an optic. And the beam is so nice. Pics to come.

    I Just got back from a late night walk with the 6PX Pro to give it some time in the hand then I took some pics of the light. Guys this light is a winner my opinion. It has a really nice beam with really good throw and spill. It's is a little slippery in the hand and is a little top heavy towards the head. But I really like it. Here are the shots.






    Here are some shots of the tailcap threads compared to the C2. Looks good to me. Same beefyness that you expect from SF.


    The same can be said for the body tube. One of the main reason I like SF lights is the toughness of them. This light compares just as good to it's more expensive brothers.

    Here are some beamshots of the 6PX compared to the LX2. They are pretty close to each other. With the LX2 having a little more throw while the 6PX has more spill. What you would expect from a reflector light and a optic light.

    Thanks prime77! I have the LX2 and now I know what to expect from the 6PX. Oh, is the low power quite similar between the both of them?

    Could someone confirm if what I see is an XP-E in there?

    Yes the low is pretty similar between the both. Again the 6PX has more reflector spill.

    I just picked up a G2X thanks to a 20% off anniversary sale at a local sporting good store.

    Im a little dissapointed that the Pro fires low first and then low. Not quite tactical like my E1B.

    I think I will just have to get used to it. I dont mind low then high. but i dont like that I have to switch it like a E1B or E2DL. I like my Kroma and A2 that fires up low and press more fore high. I feel like it is an extra step to double tap to switch levels.

    and so on?

    How tough are the optics on these models since they are not from glass?

    The window is polycarbonate which is very tough. Shatter proof. Far better than glass for everyday durability. LEDs have no need for glass.

    Thank you,I've read the specs about the polycarbonate material but what about scratch resistant ability?How tough is it?

    Due to the window being recessed its unusual for it to scratched.

    Either use mineral or plastic but protected by rim.

    Recess can not save the optics from being scratched from keys or other EDC items found in a pouch.My point is that although the price is quite low for a Surefire ,details like this make the difference.
    I am really looking forward for a long term test on these models.

    You don't need to listen to the opinions of experienced owners but my belief is usually such people have a better idea of the product than those who do not have it in hand.

    Hmmm . . . Don't carry keys or pocket change in the same pocket or pouch with your light. Especially something the size of a 2xCR123 light.

    Just ordered the G2X plus a dozen batteries with the 15% LAPG discount and free shipping. I'd like to have an LX2 but for 3 times the price of the G2X I just couldn't do it. Hopefully the backorder wait won't be too long.

    But seriously speaking, this particular Stratum I have has a very nice threading. It fits so snugly and operates so smoothly I don't even hear much of a sound when removing the tailcap. It really is first class machining.
    Exactly the kind of remarks I need to make a decision to spend my money. I've never been a follower, not going to start now. Don't like a plastic lens on a quality flashlight, scratches too easily.

    Is there an L1 style push for temp and twist for on tailcap that will work with the G2X flashlight? I'm used to that with my L1 and would like to keep the same UI if possible.
