Gear [SHOT Show 2017] New Surefire XC2 WML Released at SHOT Industry News January 20, 2017 Join the Conversation SureFire released their new XC2 early this week at the 2017 NSSF SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here are some details. SHOT Show 2017: Surefire XC2 WML SureFire, LLC, located in Fountain Valley, Calif., describes themselves as the “leading manufacturer of the world’s finest and most innovative illumination tools and tactical products.” Some would argue that's a pretty fair description. Here is what SureFire tells us about their new weapon light: The XC2 is the new evolution of SureFire’s game changing, ultra-compact pistol lights and builds upon the success of its predecessor, the XC1. It features the same impressive 200-lumen output as the XC1, but also has a 635nm highly visible red-laser. The addition of this laser, in conjunction with its 200-lumen white light, makes the XC2 the ultimate compact accessory for concealed-carry. The XC2’s momentary and constant -on switches also feature improved ergonomics, further improving the weaponlight’s overall performance. Now those who carry concealed not only have the capability to positively identify threats, but also improved low-light target acquisition and the ability to fire from non-standard shooting positions. The XC2 and other Sure Fire products can be viewed at the SureFire Booth #13968 on the second level of the main hall of the Sands Expo Center, 201 Sands Ave, Las Vegas, NV, 89169. The NSSF SHOT Show goes until January 20, 2017. This has been a special SHOT Show installment of Industry News. It is not a review nor an endorsement. What is the NSSF SHOT Show? The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services. Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc View imagery from our coverage of last year's SHOT Show here; 2015's is right here.
