Fact Sheet: SureFire M2 Centurion


SureFire M2 Centurion

The SureFire M2 Centurion features an ergonomically designed combat grip body, a belt/pocket clip and a Lock-Out Tail Cap.  The M2 was marketed as a compact, high-intensity incandescent flashlight for tactical and duty use or conditions requiring enhanced grip.

The original M2 design used a standard bezel assembly which was replaced in 2001 with a shock-isolated bezel to withstand recoil or impact.  This led to the introduction of the C2 Centurion which was essentially the same as the earlier M2 Centurion.

The M2 Centurion comes standard with both the P60 and P61 lamp assemblies along with a wrist lanyard.  Due to its modular design, the M2 Centurion can use many of the same accessories as C2 Centurion.
