Surefire products are the result of motivation and hard work dating all the way back to 1969. Dr. John Matthews decided that using lasers for industrial applications would lead to a brighter future, and so the Newport Corporation was born. After a decade of designs and finding a variety of industrial uses for the laser, Matthews embarked on developing a firearm sight utilizing the same technology.
John Matthews bought out the laser sight business with approval from the Newport Corporation board, then he left the company and focused on developing a quality handgun sight under the company name Laser Products. The first product was for the Colt Trooper, later followed by a sight for the Ruger Mini-14. However, things really turned around for Matthews when the LAPD SWAT Team called him up in 1984 to ask for laser-sighted shotguns to assist with security during the Olympics.
Laser Products continued to develop weapon lights for law enforcement and the military. Eventually, the company changed its name to Surefire, associating itself with quality lights and other products suitable for use in tactical applications. From multi-setting flashlights to lenses, filters, batteries, hearing protection, and more, these products are the perfect solution to your illumination and protective needs while carrying a firearm. Hold them in your hand, attach them to your gun, or even wear them on your helmet to provide the light and protection you need.
