This is a great flash light bright and crisp. It's expensive but worth the money

Awesome Light

I had a competitors light which was a few lumens brighter but used the three CR123 batteries. I would have to replace those batteries on a weekly basis which got expensive. This light is awesome. It gives me the option to recharge in my unit or replace the batteries with two CR123 batteries. The charge holds for two weeks and the light is crisp and bright. The light itself is very durable. I tend to break or drop things as I did with this light. Rather than the light breaking or the metal chipping, the rim of the light took a chuck out of the floor. This is not your ordinary light. It is an instrument from the illumination gods. Yes it may be pricey but its sure is worth it.

A little Green but great

I am very happy to have a such a bright light in such a small package. Performing my nightly task of taking the dogs out. Our entire two acres are illuminated. Now I have a chance to see the other critters before the dogs do.

However a minor suggestion would to color correct the light temperature. It is on the green side. I found that my SureFire Digital Ultra 2 has a better color (slightly cool - blue / light purple) and preferred

Excellent product, as expected Surefire Quality

Purchased to replace my Surefire 9N which has given me superior performance for the past 12 years. The R1's performance is truly amazing, looking forward to many years of use. A bit pricey but well worth it, over the past many years I have received excellent customer service from Surefire.

R1 Lawman 750 lumen

I have bought many Surefire lights over many years. I am not a LEO but use this light for more than a few applications and need it to work - which it has so far, quite well.

The positives are a good run time on high power level, and the power level LED indicator - very helpful. Also it is robust - shake rattle and roll and it keeps working.

The negatives are:

DIFFICULT TO FIND ON / OFF SWITCH (the forward - main switch on the barrel) - I find myself rolling the light two or more times searching for the switch with my thumb in the dark - only to resort to the tail cap switch, which requires continuous pressure - not good. [Not sure how the 1000 lumen model switch is configured] SWITCH NEEDS to be more ISOLATED / PROMINENT.

There is also a rubber hex ring that slides over the fore end to keep the light from rolling on a flat surface - I have about lost this twice with handling in a dusty vehicle (minor problem).

Nice light with a frustrating switch.

Unreliable

The charging unit or the rechargeable lithium batteries have now failed me twice. I didn't spend $450 on a flashlight only to find that isn't, first and foremost, reliable. For this kind of money, reliability should never come into question. Very disappointed in the product and Surefire CS has been slow in the past but did sent a replacement lithium battery (again, it too has failed).

After 37 years

I have been a street cop since 1978. I have had so many flashlights that I can't even tell you. I started out with one of the "green weenies" in the USAF, which was horrible. I wound up using my zippo for light more often than the flashlight.

I favor incandescent lights because of the color temperature and the way they illuminate scenes for night time photography, so it really took a lot for me to spend this kind of money on an LED. Prior to buying this light I used a pair of Surefire 9N's. But can no longer get bulbs or batteries for them.

I love this new Lawman light. I use it on Med most of the time, but really appreciate having that 750 lumens when I want it. I hardly ever recharge it. It's like a camel! And before you ask, I work nights and use it every shift.

I never use the strobe function.

I have had trouble finding a black basket weave holster for it. The one I got from Surefire didn't work out. I am currently using the same one I had for the 9N which is a tiny bit too big around, so I wrapped a little tennis racket hand grip tape around the flashlight and it fits fine. Also the tape helps with holding the flashlight under my arm when conducting traffic stops etc.

I haven't had any trouble with the light. I am very surprised to see so many, or any for that matter, negative reviews for a Surefire flashlight. I can't explain it, only tell you how great mine has been.

Still wish I could get all this with the advantages of an incandescent bulb, but I get that just ain't physically possible.

Also the fact that I don't have to worry about the bulb burning out or breaking and the fact that I can, and do, carry 123A's in the spare cartridge means that I don't need to have two flashlights. The pair of 9N's that this light replaces were individually less expensive but were ultimately more expensive as I needed two of them.

I am very satisfied and would buy it again if I had to. I wonder what changes were made from the 750 lumen model to the 1,000 lumen model. Maybe that's got something to do with it. Anyway I have had great use out of mine. Oh, yeah, I have had it for about a year now.

Best Light I Have Used

I purchased the 1000 lumen R1 back in December, and have been using it for almost a month now. This light was a replacement to my Pelican 7060. I have never liked the idea of a variable output flashlight, but this has changed my mind. I like that the light remembers the light level (high, medium, low) when you turn it off, and resumes to that setting when it is turned on. I mainly use it on medium, which provides more than ample light for checking parking lots, business interiors, and apartment complexes. So far I have used the light for six days on a single charge (about 30-45 min per night), and still have a green light on medium (way more run time than the Pelican). Charging the light in the vehicle is a nice addition, but it is a slow process.

Light Failure

I purchased this light in August of this year. I used it for routine police work. The light is extremely bright but not reliable. The light failed when it mattered most and would not work properly continuing to turn off. If using this light for any police work I would highly recommend purchasing something different. Again Don't purchase this light!

Description

R1-B-BK
R1-B-BK 084871317436
More Output — Was 750. Now 1,000 Lumens!
Designed for law enforcement officers, the rechargeable R1 Lawman™ LED flashlight features a maximum output of 1,000 lumens, and head and tailcap switches that are user programmable. This dual-fuel capable light also has the ability to run on either its included rechargeable lithium-ion (li-ion) battery or two disposable or rechargeable 123A cells. The Lawman’s precision micro-textured reflector produces a smooth, wide beam with extensive reach and generous peripheral illumination, perfect for a broad range of police and security applications including temporarily blinding opponents.

The Lawman’s tactical tailcap switch activates the 1,000-lumen output—press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on. If programmed by the user to do so, pressing the tailcap switch three times rapidly will activate the high-intensity strobe mode. A separate click-type head switch lets you access three light levels: high (1,000 lumens), medium (150 lumens), and low (15 lumens)—or it can be programmed to activate high output only. See programming chart by clicking the small image at left.

Charging of the li-ion rechargeable battery is accomplished via the integral charging port on the side of the Lawman’s body—no need to remove the battery or place the light in a separate charging cradle. Both wall (AC) charger with international adapters and car (DC) charger are included. Constructed from tough aerospace aluminum that is Mil-Spec hard anodized for extreme durability, the Lawman is O-ring and gasket sealed to keep out moisture, dirt, and dust.

NOTE 1: When disposable 123A batteries are used in the R1 Lawman (1) the maximum output is 500 lumens; (2) medium and low output levels remain the same as with li-ion battery use; (3) runtimes at all settings are roughly 75% of li-ion battery runtimes.

NOTE 2: If the R1 Lawman does not meet your exact needs, please see our other duty-carry size rechargeable flashlights designed for police and security use, the UNR Commander, the dual-output P1R Peacekeeper, and the single-output P1R Peacekeeper Tactical.
