Nice light. Unbelievably bright! First nick put on it was from a two foot fall from my end table onto my brick fireplace base. Disappointed that it nicked so easily but it must have landed just right on edge of the brick. The second click to activate the constant on takes a lot of pressure especially using off hand. This should be improved for greater one hand use. I like the features idea because my other SureFire lights require two hands for constant on. I purchased two of these defender lights, one for myself and the other for my daughter's boyfriend. He's an EMT and Firefighter and I thought the one hand constant on feature would be useful for him. Also got him the defender model due to all the 51/50s he has to deal with.

- Great Product
6PX Defender is no doubt and excellent light. It's ergonomics work well within pistol-craft frame work. I carry it everyday with confidence and highly recommend Surefire products.

This is my 3rd Defender My first was aNRA defender which was great at the time but I went through batteries like crazy I then purchased the E2D lED what a improvement with high and low beam much improved tail cap. The 6PX has one major flaw and that is the tail cap . There is nothing to prevent the light from turning on unless the base is turned which adds another step to your defense posture and although the grip is improved ,it can be pulled out of ones hand with ease. I solved that problem by using the rubber base from my old E2D Maybe you could go back to the older style which also above the level of the switch Best Regards.

This is the 6th Surefire I have purchased, staring with the 65 lumen and 120 lumen incandescent models. I also have the early single and dual switch LEDs and really appreciate the 320 lumen model with it high intensity and long life. I have high expectations with Surefire products and have not been disappointed yet.

- A better Defender
I have owned a defender series in the past. Great light. This model has a more effective Strike Bezel that feels like it will get someone attention if I ever had to use it. The light is brighter also. The 6PK paid for itself very quickly, I found a expensive ring under my bed that I lost two years ago. Thanks.

- Another great light
This is the second of these I've recently bought. This ones for my wife. She really liked mine a lot...I could see where this was going. Just ordered the recharger and batteries, so we can both use these a lot more and no worries about burning up batteries. Her G2X Pro is now in Jeeps console as a spare and my EB1 Backup is now hers, too. It's ok since my new Backup is due in tomorrow. The woman is high maintenance...but what the heck...since she has my back, she is worth it. Great light, Surefire. Thanks, Randy

- 6PX Defender
These most powerful flashlight I own. Got it at Walmart for $95. Worth every cent. Click cap is a plus. With light held in hammer fist at shoulder level, my personal and professional experience has been that this gives me wiggle room. Having fought for my life with bare hands, blades, and bullets, I have faith in Surefire gear. They get the job done. I hope to not get in any more scrapes...having said that, I will do what is necessary to protect me and mine. My Surefires give me cause to be confident. You do good work and many of us are grateful, including my wife. P.S. Are there 12 step programs for light junkies? Thanks!

This flashlight is as a flashlight, but if you wish to carry it on you hip It can get uncomfortable because of the face it has around the lens. Even though it is made to strike someone it isn't worth having in a holster because every time you sit down it can scrape you pretty bad. If you plan to carry in a purse or just to have at home this is a perfect buy. Its quick and simple with no features like strobe that ot can get stuck on.

NEW LOW PRICE
The powerful yet compact 6PX Defender is identical to our 6PX Tactical except for two features: one is the crenellated Strike Bezel® that can be useful in emergency situations, and the other is a click-type tailcap switchpress for momentary-on, press further to click constant-on, click again for off. Utilizing a high-efficiency LED that's virtually immune to failure, the 6PX Defender provides simplicity of operation and brilliant light focused by a micro-textured reflector that creates a wide 320-lumen beam with generous peripheral illumination. The 6PX Defender's high-strength aerospace aluminum body is smoothly sculpted for a comfortable, secure grip and is hard anodized to military specifications for extreme resistance to abrasion and corrosion. SureFire makes four other flashlights similar to the 6PX Defender that do not have a Strike Bezel. The first two are the previously mentioned aluminum-body 6PX Tactical and a polymer-body version of this light, the G2X Tactical, which both have tactical switching instead of the click switch. The second two are the dual-output 6PX Pro and a polymer-body version of this light, the G2X Pro, which both have click-type switching.
