SureFire XSC-B Weapon Light ($360)
Smaller, lighter, better is a tagline that well describes the current state of pistol-mounted white light illuminators. Given the reduction in barrel and slide length of many service pistols (Glock 45/SIG M18) and micro-compact concealed carry pistols, the benefits are quickly negated once a long weapon light is added into the mix. Ideally, the light should be no longer than the pistol’s barrel, which is exactly what SureFire has done with its XSC-series of pistol lights, designed specifically for concealed carry-oriented micro compacts such as SIG’s P365, Glock’s 43x/48 and Springfield Armory’s Hellcat.
The XSC-B is designed to mount onto a wide variety of modern pistols. The single-output XSC delivers 350 lumens of intense white light shaped by a precisely engineered smooth parabolic reflector, with a runtime of 30 minutes. Its beam pattern features a bright central spot for positive target identification and generous peripheral light to help maintain situational awareness. The XSC also features a unique rechargeable battery that can be quickly and easily swapped out. Measuring less than 2 inches long and weighing less than 2 ounces, the rechargeable XSC goes virtually unnoticed until it’s needed, which is the best kind of addition to our EDC.
