I love this light. You cant go wrong with a surefire. This g2xd has a 15 lumen low and 320 lumen high, momentary and constant with a lockout twist. The 15 lumen is perfect for low light conditions and the high 320 lumen setting is super bright it will blind you! Im using it as a weapon light on my m&p15 and works great. Mounted on a vltor scout mount. The light is made of a strong strong polymer with a tough aluminum head. This light is worth every penny, not to mention b&h is by far the cheapest place to get this light.

I splurged on Surefire G2X Pro flashlights ($[$]per flashlight) to get a high quality, dependable product. To my disappointment, 2 of the 3 flashlights failed to work, right out of the box.I contacted Surefire and they told me that they were having a problem with the tailcaps. So much for quality control at Surefire. Why are they allowing defective products to leave the factory? I won't be buying any more Surefire products.

    Great light for camping, low power mode conserves battery power, high power lights up the woods like crazy! Extremely well made, quality item, will probably buy another one.

      Comments about G2X Pro LED Flashlight (Black):

      These are great flashlights. I own 4 in various colors and in the all aluminum style. This polymer version is rock-solid and extreme bright when in high mode. The low-output mode works great also for tasks and conserves battery power. The beam is concentrated in the middle and softer in the edges. Feels great in the hand with enough girth to hold on to without being overly large and is designed so it doesn't roll around on the table.

      G2X Pro vs. 6PX Pro

        Comments about G2X Pro LED Flashlight (Black):

        I've used several Surefire products in the past. I specifically purchased this light to replace a 6PX Pro I was using in my car. Both lights perform very well--very bright, great throw. The 6PX is great, but the metal body makes it frigid to hold if it lives in my car during the winter. The G2X Pro has a polymer body, and doesn't get cold like the 6PX. I tested it by hiking this winter with the G2X in an exposed pocket on my pack--no issue; I was able to handle the light with my ungloved hand without issue.

        Other side notes: the click switch on the G2X feels "clickier" than the 6PX--I actually kind of like it better, but either way is fine. If there was a polymer body single-cell SF light, I'd probably have gotten that for the size. The 6PX I own is the 200-lumen version (G2X Pro is 320-lumen)--I don't see much of a difference...both are very bright lights.

        I still will keep the 6PX, but for colder temps the G2X Pro will be my go to. While I'd rather pay less for a flashlight, I will gladly buy SF products based on quality, warranty, and being built in the USA.

        Sweet light. Great to have two settings. Don't abuse the higher setting so the battery life lasts. Just wish I had a no-hands option.

        Very well built, it has two power settings. Push the back button halfway down for an instantaneous light or all the way in for constant light

        Small light weight and fits in pocket.
        Use it on my boat. Good throw and like the clear bright amount of spill. Compared it to one of the cheap flashlights advertised at 1600 lumens and the Surefire G2X is much brighter and makes objects in the distance look clearer.

        Excellent flashlight - only negative is that it uses CR123A batteries rather than more readily available and cheaper alkaline or rechargeable AA cells.

        Great successor to the original G2

        Comments about G2X Pro LED Flashlight (Forest Green):

        Opted for the Pro model with the low-output first click which makes it perfect for walks around the neighborhood. It also succeeds the older G2 as a nightstand light, forest green makes it easier to see in pitch black, new contours make it less likely to roll off, and the second click turns night into day.

        Perfect product from surefire. Very bright. Multi switch modes is a great feature. This light will light up well over 100 yards easy. Lowest setting is plenty bright to navigate. Best price from BH and the fact it comes with 2 surefire 123 batteries is a bonus.

        This light is by far worth every penny. The construction and ergonomics of this light feel great. The click switch feels solid and the both low and high beam of light is perfect. No artifacts in the beam. That it being polymer.. The inside battery tube is aluminum giving it more strength rather the whole thing being only polymer. Its very bright and had a great throw. For the price you cannot get any better. I plan on buying more. Also it comes with 2 surefire batteries which is a bonus

            Of the 20+ SureFire products I've purchased in the last decade or so, this one is by far the best value. It has a good beam, feels nice in the hand, and has a click tailcap unlike the old G2. I'll be buying several more of these soon.

              This is the second one of these I own. It is replacing an old 6P with a single output and screw on/ momentary on button. I keep this one by my bed with my home defense unit. I have another one in my car. even though the old machined aluminum lights are made well, this will take a beating without getting scratched up. It feels secure in your hand, and the dual output is the only way to go. All pro's, and no con's.

                  Used in multiple climate conditions, this is an excellent light source. Two levels of lumination and a locking twist to secure the light on or off make it idea for my usage. The compact size is a big bonus as it travels with me. I secured a lanyard of my own as the black case may not show up well if dropped on a dark surface. All as advertised.
