FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Ca. - SureFire, the Southern California-based producer of high-end illumination tools, is introducing a more powerful version of its best-selling G2 Nitrolon® flashlight. The slightly larger 9-volt G3 combines all of the features that have helped make the G2 one of SureFire’s most popular, best-selling flashlights, plus an increased maximum light output of 105 lumens—200 lumens with its optional ultra high-output lamp.

Just like its predecessor, the G3’s body is constructed from Nitrolon, SureFire’s proprietary polymer made from nylon and fine glass fibers for strength, abrasion resistance, and increased stability at higher temperatures.

The non-conductive, non-corrosive body is molded to incorporate the same popular gridlock pattern as the G2, which makes it comfortable and easy to hold on to—even in adverse weather conditions or when hands are muddy, cold, wet, or gloved. And the weatherproof G3’s O-ring seals help keep moisture, dust, and dirt where they belong—on the outside of your flashlight. The G3 features the same tailcap switching that’s popular on many SureFire models—press for momentary-on and twist for constant-on—as well as SureFire’s patented lockout tailcap that prevents accidental activation during transport or storage.

In addition to an increase in light output, the G3 also features an upgraded window, the transparent piece of glass or plastic that protects a flashlight’s light source and reflector from the elements. The G3’s window is made of tough, durable Pyrex® glass with a thin layer of anti-reflective coating to help maximize light output. Total length of the G3 is 6.5 inches, it weighs in at 5.5 ounces, and it runs on three three-volt lithium batteries (one more than the two-battery G2) for approximately one hour.

The G3 comes in two colors—black and olive drab—and its MSRP is $59.00. It is available from authorized SureFire dealers or directly from SureFire by calling 800-828-8809 or visiting
