    1st review

    This flashlight fits in the palm of your hand and delivers incredible light. The rubber rings allow using the light concurrently with a handgun. Very well thought out. Can't say enough good things about this light.

    Great little light, small , powerful. You can tuck it in anywhere. With the added red lense cover it makes a excellent tac light.

    I have carried this light for about 8 years and have had no problems. I also have the holster that is made for this light.

    I like the brightness of the light but if you dont have the cap screwed in just right when you put it back into the holder on your belt it will and has burned a whole in my shirt and seat of my patrol car.

    Anything made by SureFire is tops!! Better than anything else on the market. Other than my pistol holster and cuff case, my Z2 was the next piece of equipment on my berlt when I first set it up.

    This is a very nice flashlight. Very bright and can be used in a defensive manner as it will cause someone to see bright spots in their eye's if you flash them which is handy in a sticky situation. The one downside is how quickly it goes through batteries but it more than makes up for it with everything else.

    This is an excellent light for building searches because of the one handed operation. You won't be disappointed with the purchase. It also comes with a lanyard

    This is the perfect light to have on your belt. At all times it is easy to use and deploy from the surefire holster. For building searches, Vehicles or just blinding some one. can be used day or night.

    Absolutely love this little light! Great design and light weight. I even have the holster for it...fits like a glove! I think the best part is you never have to focus the beam ever.

    Great Product! The one i currently use with the PD is my third one. I lost my first one in Iraq and the Second one was stolen from a Iraqi Police officer. The surefire is superbright and stuns anyone whos in its path. The metal is great and makes the surefire more durable. Ive dropped mine in puddles and in deep mud and it still works. Ive used my surefire on all my weapons.( M240, 249, 4 ). The lenses are awesome too, The red makes map reading way better and the IR filter luminates everything hella bright when ur using your PVS 14's. The battery life is very poor but you have options to save money on that. You can upgrade to the rechargable battery ( makes the surefire longer ) or you can convert to the LED. Either way this is my choice and I rather have this Surefire and see great, rather than having a big bulky light that you cant see anything with. Must have!!! All surefire is a must have.

    One of the best combat lights on the market for it's size and price. The rubber grip ring makes it a snap to use in conjunction with your weapon during night shooting. It's illumination is awesome considering it's size and the intensity beats out my 3 D-Cell Maglite everytime. The only gripe I have is how fast it blows through those lithium batteries. I'm lucky if I get a full hour of light which is why I only use it building clearing or traffic stops. Other than that, you can't go wrong. Be sure to get the thermoplastic holster for it as you can carry it lens up or down depending on your preference and it easily fits on your duty belt.

    I have had one of these and/or a 6p for years I just put in one of Surefire's new LED replacement lamp in this and it was worth it, so far. It seems brighter and still the awesome little light

    This is a superb light. A buddy of mine transfering out of CID gave me his because he didnt like it so I got a great light for a steal. The light is bright and focused and in the right setting serves as a non-lethal tool. Put this beam in a perps eyes at night and it's a good as OC. This is a great piece of kit.

    I got one of these in Iraq to light up the night and man I could not have made a better choice if I had done actual research before I got it. I always carry extra batterys and a bulb, I never want to be without this light again.

    I just bought the light and surefire holder. The light is awesome. The holder has a clip in it that is scratching the flash light. Normally, I wouldn't mind, but the flashlight is brand new. I am looking at a holder made by Blackhawk, now.

    I just got this light and I couldn't be happier. It is brighter than a lot of it's larger competitors and fits great in your hand while shooting and I can't think of another light that I would rather have!!!

    I carry this light on my duty belt day or night. It fits well in your hand while shooting and is a very effective tool in searching vehicles or when in most any tight space. The light is as bright if not brighter than a 5-cell Maglight.

    GREAT light. Only Incandescent light I like for shooting with. Streamlight Stinger ( though MUCH bigger) is a great flashlight, but as far as shooting goes, there is no comparison to a syringe hold on a Z2.

    I got mine when they first came out. Kinda spendy at first but it is excellent when used with the lanyard that comes with it. I use it for low light situations with weapon drawn. The lanyard allows me to just let it go when cuffing with out loosing my flash light on the floor. Also great for killing a suspects night vision for a brief while.

    I purchased this light with the Z2 LED HOLSTER KIT direct from surefire. I gotta say it's a great package comes with an adjustable size light holster that also holds 3 spare batteries. I'm still on the original batteries and have yet had to replace them since March. Great product.

    Great light. I bought mine 10 years ago, still going strong. I have upgraded the light-assembly twice and now run rechargeable batteries. Great tactical light if you don't have a weapon light. Be sure and upgrade to an LED.
