We do like a bit of “real deal” when the budget allows, and SUREFIRE are one of our favourite sources of shiny things when we do, and the new compact, rechargeable handgun-light, the XR1, has most definitely piqued our interest!

The XR1 is a compact, rechargeable handgun light that boasts an impressive 800 lumens and 15,000 candela. The XR1 is activated with intuitive ambidextrous switches that allow for both momentary-on or constant-on activation. This concealable weaponlight operates on a quick-detach battery, enabling you to swap out the power source without removing the light from your handgun platform of choice.

The XR1 is designed for mid-size handguns with its ultra-lightweight, extremely compact, low-profile design. Its new rail mount features four points of contact to ensure an added measure of redundancy and security when mounted to your pistol. The dual recoil-proof LEDs result in a Hybrid beam pattern with significant reach downrange as well as ample spill light, so you can positively ID targets at distance while maintaining situational awareness.

XR1-A features:

  • Dual LEDs deliver 800 lumens of intense white light and 15,000 candela shaped in to a Hybrid beam pattern; ideal for positive target identification at short- to medium-range distances, delivering a bright central beam and ample spill light.
  • Compact form factor is ideal for concealment, adding no additional width or length to most mid-sized concealable handguns.
  • SureFire’s intuitive and ambidextrous switching provides momentary-on or constant-on activation for virtually foolproof, stress-free instant activation.
  • Quick-detach, rechargeable lithium polymer battery provides fast and easy battery swaps without removing the XR1 from the host firearm, ideal for prolonged low light training sessions.
  • Battery-mounted fuel gauge allows convenient monitoring of charge status; it minimizes your chances of being caught with a dead battery
  • Included charging cradle features two charging bays so you can keep charged spare batteries readily at hand.
