In 1986, over three decades ago now, SureFire introduced the 6P® Original. This revolutionary light was a fraction of the size of a traditional flashlight, yet its high-performance incandescent lamp cranked out an amazing (at the time) 60 lumens of light, enough to overwhelm the dark-adapted vision of an aggressor and cut through the darkness. It also featured a thumb-activated switch on its tailcap, which made activating the light simply a matter of covering the switch with your thumb and pressing—no more fumbling around on the light’s body to find and activate the switch like with a conventional flashlight. This little light was a hit with law enforcement and the military professionals, and soon thereafter, with civilians who wanted the same flashlight the pros carried. With the 6P, a whole new genre of illumination tool was born: the “tactical flashlight.” And this was several years after SureFire had already invented weapon-mounted lights and established the whole new genre of WeaponLights.
Chosen by elite tactical professionals on the battlefield and trusted by hardcore outdoorsmen voyaging into the Great Outdoors, SureFire lights are a proven performer. Tools you can trust to get the job done and help you get home safely. Tools durable and reliable enough to handle anything thrown your way.
