New Surefire X200 LED Weapon Light and Custom Operator

Hey all, just ordered the new Surefire X200 LED Weapon Light that I had been waiting for. Gonna attach it to my Custom Operator as soon as the light and firearm gets here. It's been a long wait since July...still have to wait till January for the Custom Operator. Hope the light gets here sooner. :)

I didn't know that they were already for sale. If you don't mind me asking, did you buy it directly from Surefire, and what was the price? Thanks.

The X200 should be available in Jan '04. The tape switch version will follow shortly thereafter.

They are available for PRE-ORDER from Onestopknifeshop.com. Go to the website and under the products listing scroll down to LED flashlights. You will find it listed for $155.99 less shipping. The price is discounted if a purchase is made in bulk. A group buy would save some money. If you click on Buy Now, you can check on what the shipping charge will be. The shipping charges via UPS 2nd Day Air to Hawaii is $20.00 for a total price of $175.99. Not a bad price at all. When I heard about Surefire coming out with a new waterproof weapon mounted light I assumed that the price would be alot more. I am not sure when the order will be delivered but hell, I won't have my Custom Operator till January or February anyway.:)

Contacted "One Stop Knife Shop" yesterday regarding the pre-order I placed back in December for the new Surefire X200A LED Weapon Light for my Springfield Armory Custom Operator. I was advised by the salesman that Surefire has increased the cost price for the X200A and increased the MSRP to $259.00. The advertised pre-order price of $155.99 from "One Stop Knife Shop" has been increased to $199.99 plus shipping. The salesman also indicated that they will be receiving the X200A sometime between the end of January and mid February. They will not honor the pre-order price of $155.99 so I will have to send an additional $44.00. I guess it was to good to be true about being able to purchase the new X200A for under $200.00 retail. Again, "One Stop Knife Shop" will offer a price break on a bulk purchase. If anyone is interested in the X200A maybe someone can plan a group buy. It will save you some money. I'd start a group buy but I don't think anyone would be interested because of my location here in Maui, Hawaii. The shipping charges from Maui, Hawaii to anyone in the continental USA would be too much and you would end up not saving in the long run.

If this light uses the K4 or K6 head it will be very good indeed. I have an L4 handheld light which has been very good. 67 lumens from an LED at a frequency that really makes one see spots !

The X200A uses an optic lens to focus the beam. SureFire call this a "diamond optic".

The X200A does not use the same type of Luxeon or have a reflector like the KL4, KL5 or KL6.
