Surefire XH30

Why Use The XH30? - It's the upgraded version of the popular Surefire X300U with increased lumen and added strobe model. 

Definitely pick the XH30 over the XH35 because XH30 has high candela (11.3K) for combating photonic barriers, which is very effective for defensive use.

Same Control As X300U - No learning curve, if you have used the Surefire X300U before, this is exactly the same control with some added features you will quickly learn how to use in no time.

Dual Lumen Settings - Switch between 1000 lumens for high intensity use and 300 lumens close up low light CQB use without blinding the eye

Built To Last - Same aerospace grade material (IPX7 rated) as other combat proven Surefire products that will last a long time through everyday handling

Fits M1913 Rail - Adjustable tension screw mount goes on the M9A3 and M9A4 better than the Rail Lock design without wearing out the mount

Common FAQ

Non Railed (92FS) Light Mount Adapter

Image Referenced AR15.com

Non bridger model of the M9 or 92FS pistols require aftermarket 1913 pictainny mount adapters to accept a tactical light.

The best one we recommend is the Surefire MR11, however it has been discountinued. An alternative is the TRG EZ-Rail, tested and approved by Colt.

Before you purchase anything make sure the trigger guard of your 92FS is compatible with the adapter.

To install the rail adapter, depress the disassembling latch release button on the Beretta, slide the adapter against the trigger guard and position the open slot in the adapter over the disassembling latch release button. Screw the Teflon screw down until it just makes contact with the trigger guard.
