Are Some Surefire Flashlights Made in China?

Back in 2009, aside from a few postings of his on the Icon, his most recent posts are in this thread:

But my favorite PK post is here:
(BTW if you read back a few posts, you'll see that the G2 in question was rendered with a graphic taken from a photo of PK's shirt. :huh: )

Anyway, fun PK stuff, although slightly OT.
And I wish he'd post here more often as well... :)

I don't care what anyone says, PK is one class act! :bow::bow::bow:

I emailed him once to thank him for the PK Icon I won here in a raffle, and he sent me a very nice reply...that really made my day (week, month, life!), and showed me that he doesn't consider himself too important to take some time to reply to us "lower level" flashaholics.

Back on topic: One thing I do know, is that SF does their best to use US made materials to make their products...these days it's not possible to make something 100% US made in most cases. I just bought a brand new 2011 Ford Ranger, and in the glove box I found a statement saying 65% of the truck was American made. I still consider it to be an American made vehicle. Besides, the majority of the money made by American based companies still trickles into the American economy in one way or another.

I don't feel bad about owning a couple dozen Surefire products, even if the emitters are made overseas.
