Up for sale: 1x OEM SureFire Z72 Black Nitrolon tactical tailcap switch pulled from a brand new SureFire flashlight. This tailcap switch is great for replacing broken or worn-out Nitrolon tailcap switch on the SureFire G2 and G3 flashlights. The modular tailcap switch also make an excellent addition to any collector's SureFire "lego" parts bin. Made in the USA by SureFire - Manufacturer of "THE WORLD'S FINEST ILLUMINATION TOOLS".
SureFire's polymer tailcap switch is made of Nitrolon, a proprietary high-strength, non-conductive, impact-resistant, glass-filled polyamide nylon polymer. "Glass-filled" means that the polymer matrix has been mixed with fine glass fibers that add rigidity, abrasion resistance, and increased stability at higher temperatures.
The super reliable classic "twisty" tactical tailcap switch has significant ergonomic advantages. First, it can be found instantly regardless of the light's orientation in the hand. Second, it can be easily activated by applying thumb pressure in a natural gripping action. And third, releasing thumb pressure turns the light off - a so called "dead man" switch - which can be crucial in combat.
Constant-on activation, of a light equipped with this type of "tactical" switch. is accomplished by twisting the tailcap clockwise. This method is crucial in modern low-light tactics, something SureFire also pioneered. We later added a lockout feature. Merely unscrewing the tailcap (counterclockwise) to prevent the unintended activation of the light during transport, storage, stealth operations.
A fundamental benefit for users of SureFire illumination tools is modularity. This means that many components can be used on different product models, and that certain product models can be reconfigured with available accessories to meet changing needs.
