SureFire XC1 Compact Pistol Light

    SureFire is coming out with a new pistol light. This one was designed with X300 user complaints in mind. SureFire received many requests for a pistol light that does not protrude past the muzzle of common pistols like a Glock 17 or 19.

    The XC1 is similar to the new Titan. It uses the same LED and reflector. Both are fueled by a single AAA. They will come with a rechargeable NiMH AAA battery but the charger will be separate. Not really a big issue as many people have NiMH rechargers already. SureFire will be coming out with their own charger later.

    Price is TBD but it puts out 200 lumens from a single AAA. It has a run time of 1 hour and 30 mins. The light pattern is a bit floody with a little throw. This is nothing like the X-series lights where there is a decent hot spot to throw the light further down range. This is for CQB purposes, according to the SureFire rep that I spoke with.
