Newest SureFire “CombatLight” Lives Up to Name

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has created a new flashlight designed and built with the needs of law enforcement officers and other tactical professionals in mind. Their new AZ2 LED CombatLight® features two useful output levels, a durable hard-anodized aluminum body, tactical tailcap switching, and SureFire’s proprietary CombatGrip, which makes pairing the light with a weapon easier.Flashlights

The AZ2′s dual-output and compact size make it a great choice as an everyday-carry primary light for law enforcement officers. It features a virtually indestructible primary LED that generates a far-reaching, 150-lumen beam capable of temporarily overpowering an aggressor’s eyesight. Surrounding the main LED is a ring of four secondary LEDs that produce a 35-lumen wide-angle beam designed for clearing buildings, loading gear, and other closer-range tasks that don’t require quite so much light or reach. Both beams are shaped by a special micro-textured reflector that blends the light so there are no rings, dark spots, or other imperfections typical of lesser flashlights.

The flashlight’s body is precision milled from aerospace aluminum, which is as strong as steel but lighter, and then covered with a Mil-Spec hard-anodized finish nearly as hard as diamonds. The body is tapered to reduce weight and improve ergonomics, part of SureFire’s exclusive CombatGrip, which along with a rubber grip ring, allows the light to be held and operated “syringe style” when paired with a handgun, as well as provides excellent purchase in cold, wet weather or while wearing heavy gloves. Partially depressing the tailcap pushbutton delivers the lower output; pressing farther unleashes all 150 lumens from the light’s primary LED.

Weighing in at only 5.1 ounces, with batteries, and measuring less than six inches in length, the AZ2 is compact and combat ready-especially when paired with a lightweight, quick-deploy holster like SureFire’s V85A Polymer Speed Holster. The AZ2 currently retails for $260, and the V85A holster is sold separately for $49.
