It’s hard for many to take the word of a written review when it comes to a weapon mounted light and for these they prefer seeing the results before they purchase anything. When it comes to the SureFire X400 Ultra is one that you can trust from a written review.
From reading the specifications of this light you can compare it with other models of weapon mounted lights. If you already have a weapon light you can compare the specs with that so you can imagine how different the lights would be. You can also look up the run time of the flashlight and even compare the weights for each model that you are looking at.
Even though the real test will be after you purchase the light and turn it on, looking at those numbers can at least let you know what to expect. The best thing is to see the light and see it for the first time while you are in total darkness. I can tell you that the SureFire X400 Ultra will definitely wow you and will continue to do this over and over again.
This weapon light from Surefire boats a 500 lumen high intensity lamp featuring white light. It also has a 5 milliwat red laser in a compact package that is rail mountable which will give its users the best of both worlds. It can be mounted on a long gun as well as on a handgun but reviewers note that the Surefire X400 really feels like is is made for a carbine, shotgun or rifle.
We can safely say that the bar has been raised for this flashlight by SureFire. It provides an excellent amount of light and can light up your entire backyard in your test so just imagine what it can do out in the woods or on the job in a dark lonely alley way. It’s laser has a nice long range and can be used and remains visible more than other types of red lasers.
The Surefire X400 will work on a number of handguns including the H&K USP Tactical, Glock 19. It also works on the shotguns such as the Mossberg 590A1 and on the H&K 94 and the M4 Carbine Rifles. With a good size mounting screw to the right side of the light it is easy to take off except for the M900. The longest part of the process would be changing the lock bar from a Picatinny to a Universal or vice versa. That alone will take approximately 20 seconds.
You will find the light easy to manipulate and the laser is easy to manipulate as well. It uses a rocker switch that allows you to go from laser to light and light to light or to just use laser mode just by the flip of a switch. You can find a number of switches available from SureFire as well as other devices that you can add to find a more comfortable use with the long gun.
When you move the module between platforms you will have to recalibrate the laser. That is a downside but the laser is not hard to adjust and so it shouldn’t be much of a problem. The laser will also stay locked in place and will hold zero after you set it.
