surefire G2X

Post by b_rik » Thu Oct 24, 2013 11:08 am

I own a Surefire G2X and dropped it a few weeks ago from about 3 feet on to a concrete floor. I feel like after the fall it is not outputting the max amount of lumens as it previously did. I read the trouble shoot guide on the surefire website and tried all the suggestions to no avail. I now have sent two inquiries about repair/replacement and have received no reply from surefire. Streichers, where I bought it from was no help what so ever. So at this point, I was hoping someone else nearby, on these boards owns one, so I could do a side by side comparison to see if the light is jacked or I am just crazy.

I've got one, but that's not really helpful :P

LEDs tend to be pretty shock resistant, and if you damaged the electronics in any way the result should be a light that doesn't work rather than a dim one. By far the most volatile part of the light is the batteries, I assume you've tried replacing those?

I think warranty might cover that...check with SureFire. Striecher's is pretty good about honoring Surefire warantys too.
