SureFire XC1 Super Compact LED Handgun Light Review

Specifications Of The SureFire XC2

  • Diameter Of The Bazel: 0.375 in.
  • Red laser: 5 mW/635 nm 
  • Runtime: 90 minutes 
  • Lenghth: 2.375inches
  • Weight (battery included): 1.6 oz.
  • Shipping Package dimensions:  6 x 4 x 2.5 in.

XC1 Super Compact Features

  • Concealed-carry Use effective
  • Front-facing Battery compartment
  • Sturdy aerospace aluminum body


The XC1 have multifaceted reflector, which combined with its uniform spread output, and waterproof construction, make of it an amazing light. Also the rugged built makes it easy to handle.

The mounts system is compatible with most of the systems that are generally used, and when talking about the battery it is an AAA unit that comes with the light.

Also another great feature is the weight of the light, that with its lightness make really easy to handle, and avoid the possibility of undesired instability when shooting the weapon. The mounts also feel secure and they keep static without any movement.

Even though it is a good value product, it is not cheap.


Overall is a great product, and the biggest drawback is its price. For starters,it is fair to say that you don't really feel the weight of the light on the weapon. The paddle on each side of the trigger guard is designed to push it for momentary activation, which makes really easy to do it with either hand.

The light is 200 lumen, but I remember when  the 60 lumen flashlights were the maximum that you could get, so even though you can these days get more powerful lights, 200 lumens is a reasonable amount of power.

Another aspect is, that the product releases a quite wide beam, which have no hot spot, so if the intention is to illuminate wide areas, this item is very appropriate. Outdoor works well up to approximately 40 yards, and beyond that distance the flood beam doesn’t have enough power, making it useful for shorter range only.

Our opinion in general is pretty positive, and the only small issue is that the permanent switch is going to be a feature that will require a little practice to get used to it. AAA batteries are everywhere, therefore here is another advantage of the XC1, plus the fact that the battery compartment has an o-ring and is also threaded.

Also we like that the light is strongly sealed, which makes it a real waterproof product.

With no doubts we dare to point out that the size of the XC1 is the highlight of this product from Surefire. What really amazed us about its design, is that such a small and low weight light could release such a strong beam. If you have owned another light, and then you get the Surefire XC1 you will see what I mean.

There are many small weapon lights in the market, but without the power of the XC1, and you are going to find easily lights that are much powerful that this one, but normally will be heavier or bigger. The great deal about this light is the combination of its potent beam  and how easy is to handle it.

The design is also of very short length, and with its compact battery compartment, contributes in great manner to be the smallest of the catalog of lights from Surefire.

Another great idea from the engineers of Surefire, is that you are able to change the battery of the light without removing it from the weapon.

SureFire XC1  Compact LED Light Switch System

They are easy to use, and when the user wants to trigger the momentary mode option, only has to place the support hand thumb on the top of either of the 2 rear switches and then push them down.

Also the mode can be activated by locating your hand thumb against the switch and then pressing forward until the switch toggles down. To undo the process is only necessary to remove the pressure from the momentary mode switch.

When persons want to use the constant mode, they just have to apply pressure using the support hand to impulse the center crossbar switch from side by side. To deactivate the mode, only is necessary to undo the process.

Light Unique Features

Surefire XC1 Durability

Talking about sturdiness, it is right to say that the hard metal gives the light the necessary ruggedness for a light that will be used routinely, and its impact resistance is guaranteed by the stiff aerospace aluminum metal that is utilized in its construction. This material though is very robust, has the characteristic that is also very light, feature that make the performance of the light top notch.

The rugged metal of the light is covered by a mil-spec hard anodizing, which makes the lifetime of the product to be improved significantly by protecting the high strength aluminum from the effects of the dust, scratches and rust.

Sturdy Construction

XC1  Compact LED Light Performance

The assessment of the performance of these kinds of lights is directly related to close and long distance target easy identification.

This light features a high-power LED circuit system that release a significant 200 lumens of tactical beam, very bright, and a well-balanced output with a runtime of 90 minutes. Before the light output is released, it passes across its multifaceted reflector, which results in an evenly distributed beam called “MaxiVision Beam”.

The light also enables users to keep their awareness, and identify easily close range threats, due that it is fully optimized for the human sight.

Buyers Opinion

Buyer 1:

I bought the XC1 to replace an X300, and fit  much better on my weapon. Now I am thinking about buying another one to replace an older light. What I like of this light is that its size allows to fit very well with the frame of the gun, and unlike another bigger models of Surefire it only overhangs nearly a quarter of an inch over the end of it.

The design, finish and materials are, as expected from Surefire, excellent, and no matter that the output is 200 lumens because the luminosity is more than enough for a product like this.

Buyer 2:

I liked it from the beginning, and the only thing that you need to taker of is that the lens due that sometimes becomes blurred after constant use. This is not a big deal because you just have to wipe the lens regularly, and the problem is solved. I would recommend it for people that need that the pressure pads could be used from both side of the light, and even though you have to push the button from the right side of the weapon, the use of the pads is simple.

Buyer 3:

Great light to use in a close range and personal defense too. Excellent beam that that helps you to be focused on the whole scene. The fact that uses triple A batteries is an advantage over other products in this range of price, which run exclusive sizes that are much more expensive. The ambidextrous design is practical for both, right and left handed.

Conclusion Of The SureFire XC1 Super Compact LED Handgun Light Review

The great advantage of this light over similar products is that you are getting an output of 200 lumens from one AAA battery, which is a game changer when you compare it to similar items. If you are interested on how bulky you feel this light, the good news is that you cannot even feel the weight of it when added to your pistol. Another great feature of the light is that it is possible to replace the battery from the front of the weapon, and it is not necessary to dismantle to do it

The price is a little steep, but considering that there is no alternative on the market when looking for a light this compact, we think that the Surefire XC1 is a great value for the money item.

The M300 Mini Scout Light is an ultra compact and powerful gun light that is easy and simple to mount on MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rails. Its luminosity output is helped by the total Internal reflection (TIR) system generating an intensity of 500 lumens, powerful enough for short and medium range applications, with great peripheral reach that allows an ample sight in the dark .Also its size and weigh make the manipulation very easy, and we liked the aesthetic look of the light.

There is not much negative to say about the M300 from surefire.It is a really efficient item.


Something we learned when we did the SureFire M300 Scout Mini Light Compact LED Weapon Light (Black) Review is that with its ultra-compact size and design, this flashlight frees you rail space (MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny) from your weapon, having an advantage and better mobility that is incomparable with other weapons lights.

In The Box

  • 1 SureFire Scout M300 Light
  • Lightjunction Battery Case
  • 1 x Factory Installed plus 2 x EXTRA Surefire CR123A batteries which give you 10 years of shelve life

Performance of The Light

The shrouded click switch that is located in the tailcap,  performs exactly how SureFire says, and it is easy and comfortable to use. The position of it helps to avoid the accidental activation of the light and also the easy access to it.

Talking about luminosity this recoil-proof LED model comes with a bigger output of 500 Lumens of white light, that can be used up to 1 hour, otherwise older releases that displayed only 300 Lumens. The beam released by the Total Internal Reflection lens combined with 500 lumens of power is enough to achieve an adequate performance between close and mid range, meaning that the peripheral vision is ample but also take care of the focus of the beam.

The durability aspect of the SureFire Scout M300 is guaranteed by the strong building material (hard anodized aerospace aluminum), which is the same that is used in the aerospace industry. Beyond that, the light shows an optically coated tempered glass material.

The lightness of the product helps to minimize a possible negative effect on the weapon that is mounted on.

SureFire M300 Scout Brightness

To understand the brightness of the SureFire Scout is useful to have a look at what Lumens are. To make it easy to understand, Lumens are units of quantity that measure the total amount of visible light from a light source. If the amount in Lumens released from a source of light is higher, then the luminosity rating is brighter. Also the kind of light is related not only to luminosity, but also to power consumption.

It is important to know that lights like the SureFire Scout that uses Led bulbs, implies a higher Lumens rating by consumption of energy. A nice way to put it, is that to get the same output that you get with a 100 watts regular bulb you would need only 13 watts from a Led lamp. The reason behind this fact is that Led converts the energy to brightness in a greater extent, minimizing the portion of energy that is converted in heat.

The bottom line is that the 500 Lumens that the SureFire M300 comes with is a very respectable amount for a small light like this.

SureFire Scout M300 Light Mount


Q: Which kinds of batteries this light use?

A: The light only can use 123A batteries

Q: Is the mount removable?

A: Yes, it is possible to removed it to use on another tactical mount

Q: Are Daniel defense offset mounts work with the light?

A: Yes, the Daniel Defense mounts work with the Surefire M300  and depending on the rail will mount to either side of the rail or on top.

Battery of the SureFire M300 Scout

The  company especially advise against the purchasement of fake or under priced batteries, due that in some cases when using such a products the light has become damaged and even in some scarce case the user has been slightly injured. The batteries  offered by SureFire have been tested comprehensively to achieve the highest safety standards.

The beam is optimized for the field of vision of the user.

Aerospace Aluminium

Aerospace aluminium is one of the essential components used in aircraft and many other commercial products.
Combined with other compounds, aluminum is one of the metals that can withstand the thermal impact of an entrance to the atmosphere and is vital in the construction of different parts of various other items such as flashlights.

What is 6061 aluminum?

There are different types of alloys and one of them is known as 6061 aluminum, which is composed of 95% and 98% aluminum and is combined together with elements such as titanium, copper, iron and silicon.
One of its characteristics or advantages is its extraordinary corrosion resistance, ideal for the structure of all types of aircraft and used in the manufacture of wings or the fuselage of commercial aircraft.
In addition, 6061 aluminum can be found in different parts of space probes such as the Pioneer 10.

Another kinds o alloys are the aluminum alloys used with zinc, in average amounts of 1% to 8% which when combined with a lower percentage of magnesium, can be heat treated to achieve a high level of resistance. Typically, zirconium and titanium are also added to this type of alloy in amounts that do not exceed 0.25 to increase the hardness of it like for example the 7474 which is a variant of 7075, that replaces the latter especially when thicknesses above 80 mm are needed. They are widely used in fuselages, structures of airplanes, mobile equipment and parts subject to high working stresses in the aerospace industry. They have higher corrosion resistance and are often used slightly over-aged to provide better combinations of mechanical strength, corrosion  and fracture resistance.

Aalloys made from aluminium have occupied a important place in the transportation, car and many more industries for more than 30 years, since the material has special characteristics of high hardness, lightness, mechanical resistance and thermal conductivity, among others, essential for creation of aircraft, this being one of its most important applications today.

SureFire says that some people have reported that internal shorts have led to fires or explosions due to the use of low quality or fake batteries. In some rare occasions the results have been injuries, but mostly the damage has been in the flashlight itself.
