SureFire’s series of WeaponLights are well known throughout the firearms world.

Recently, the company added an all new light to its X400 series.

The versatile X400V IRc features SureFire’s V-Series head, a sealed, selectable head that contains both a white-light and infrared LED inside, to accommodate missions requiring visible and virtually non-visible (to the naked eye) illumination. By simply pushing and rotating a self-locking selector switch on the head, a user can switch from white-light to IR illumination (for use with night vision devices) on the fly, with no infrared filter required.

The X400V IRc generates 150 lumens of blinding, tactical-level light on its white-light setting and 120 mW of infrared illumination when set to IR mode. It also features a commercially available <0.7 mW infrared laser sight, suitable for force-on-force training and ideal for stealth operations using night vision devices.

As with all laser-equipped SureFire X400 WeaponLights, the X400V IRc’s laser-adjustment mechanism uses Nylok screws that won’t back out from the effects of recoil. Since the IR laser is not visible to the naked eye, an amber-colored LED indicator illuminates whenever the laser is on, to help prevent unintended activation.

Like all X-Series WeaponLights, the new model is constructed of lightweight aerospace aluminum that’s hard anodized with a Mil-Spec finish and are O-ring and gasket sealed for added durability and weather resistance.

The X400V model weighs just less than 5 ounces fully loaded.

One-finger activation is achieved via a push/toggle switch located on the rear of both lights.

The new model also attaches quickly and securely to both Universal and MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) rails, and optional SureFire adapter mounts are available for several popular rail-less handgun makes and models.

The X400V retails for $895 and is available now.
