The powerful yet compact 6PX Defender is identical to our 6PX Tactical except for two features: one is the crenellated Strike Bezel that can be useful in emergency situations, and the other is a click-type tail cap switch press for momentary on, press further to click constant on, click again for off. Utilizing a high-efficiency LED that’s virtually immune to failure, the 6PX Defender provides simplicity of operation and brilliant light focused by a micro-textured reflector that creates a wide 200-lumen beam with generous peripheral illumination. Surefire smoothly sculpted the 6PX Defender’s high-strength aerospace aluminum body for a comfortable, secure grip. They also hard anodized it to military specifications for extreme resistance to abrasion and corrosion. SureFire makes four other flashlights similar to the 6PX Defender that do not have a Strike Bezel. With the maximum setting, the 6PX Defender will run for two hours and is perfect for emergency situations.

The ATN Javelin J125 is a compact yet powerful Flashlight, suitable for carrying during patrol duties or for the outdoor enthusiast. The ATN Javelin J125 Tactical Flashlight has a powerful high intensity 125 lumen halogen bulb. The ATN Javelin J125 is powered by (2) 3V lithium 123A batteries. In combination with the powerful halogen bulb, the operator can achieve 2-3 hours of continuous light. The manufacturer designed the metal halogen bulb housing to withstand accidental drops and remain water-resistant. During an emergency, the Flashlights’ bezel doubles as a glass breaker or as a self-defense tool. The lens will not discolor from the heat of the halogen bulb and it is scratch and impact resistant. Designers made this flashlight out of aircraft grade aluminum, which features an anti-shock bulb system. Pierce the night with the ATN Javelin J125 Device.

The G2X Pro, a polymer-body version of our 6PX Pro, uses a high-efficiency LED. It is virtually immune to failure since there’s no filament to burn out or break. This flashlight provides two light output levels: a brilliant, penetrating, perfectly pre focused 200 lumen beam, and a 15 lumen low output setting that lets you greatly extend the runtime per set of batteries, an invaluable option when you find yourself miles from civilization. Press the tailcap switch for momentary on low output, press further to click constant on low output, return to off and press or click on again within two seconds for high output. Surefire smoothly sculpted the tough Nitrolon polymer body for a comfortable, secure grip that resists scratches, abrasion, and corrosion. A polycarbonate micro textured reflector delivers a comparatively wider beam with generous peripheral light.
