Outdoor Outdoor marketplace SureFire Breaks Its Mold With Lower Prices J.K. Autry R esponding to the tough economic climate, SureFire has broken its own “high-cost” mold by offering high-quality flashlights at lower prices with its new G2X and 6PX lines. This new series of LED illumination tools is the most affordable ever manufactured by SureFire — providing an attractive offering for dealers and customers. “In spite of the tough times, our mission is to keep quality products in the hands of our customers, and keep jobs in the USA,” said Dr. John Matthews, SureFire CEO and founder. “This was a big undertaking for SureFire, and I couldn’t be more pleased with our employees who worked so hard to make this happen.” The G2X and 6PX Tactical are not revolutionary in terms of technology — both offer a simple polymer reflector and a non-removable head — but feature the same quality construction materials that SureFire is known for, such as a virtually indestructible LED emitter that is microprocessor-controlled for optimum output and runtime. “By removing the cost to make the flashlights, we are able to pass the savings onto the consumer,” Matthews said. “The best part is that we did this without outsourcing. That’s virtually unheard of these days.” The G2X Tactical boasts an MSRP of $55, and the 6PX is offered at $79.
