First Look: SureFire UDR Dominator

SureFire_UDR_Dominator_FSureFire is putting even more illuminating power in the hands of the military, law enforcement, recreational shooters and other users with the introduction of its most powerful LED flashlight ever: the UDR Dominator.

Featuring a deep precision reflector to shape light into a far-reaching beam, the SureFire UDR Dominator is capable of a maximum output of 2,400 lumens, an amount previously not possible with LED technology.

"This represents a significant milestone for SureFire and is only the beginning of things to come as LED technology continues to evolve and improve," said SureFire Director of Marketing Ron Canfield. "It's yet another first from a company with a long history of firsts, including inventing the first WeaponLight and the first tactical flashlight."

The UDR Dominator incorporates a selector ring that has a total of nine light settings, ranging from a 14-lumen option that doesn't compromise dark-adapted vision to its ultra-bright 2,400-lumen setting. The new flashlight also features a strobe light option for disorienting aggressors as well as a system disable setting to prevent accidental use during transport and storage and to save battery life. Three push-button head switches on the flashlight allow the user to select constant-on activation, momentary-on activation or a max-blast setting that delivers the maximum output no matter which output level is chosen.


The SureFire UDR Dominator is "dual-fuel-capable," meaning it can receive power from an included lithium-ion rechargeable battery or twelve disposable 123A batteries loaded into the flashlight's battery magazine. An integral, color-coded LED fuel gauge keeps track of the battery's charge level, and the UDR Dominator comes with a wall (AC) charger with international adapters and a car (DC) charger.


Constructed from lightweight, high-strength aerospace aluminum that features a Mil-Spec hard anodized finish, the UDR Dominator is built to handle a variety of tasks ranging from tactical applications to search-and-rescue operations. The flashlight has O-ring and gasket seals for durability and weather resistance, meaning it is also suitable for maritime environments.

The SureFire UDR Dominator is available for $1,370, and it can currently be purchased through authorized SureFire dealers.

Below are some some specifications for the SureFire UDR Dominator:


  • Output (li-ion): 2,400 lumens (High); 185 lumens (Medium); 14 lumens (Low)
  • Output (123As): 2,400 lumens (High); 185 lumens (Medium); 14 lumens (Low)
  • Run Time (li-ion): 52 minutes (High); 7.5 hours (Medium); 30 hours (Low)

  • Run Time (123As): 2.5 hours (High); 18 hours (Medium); 54 hours (Low)
  • Bezel Diameter: 3.0625 inches
  • Length: 11.6 inches
  • Weight (with li-ion battery): 2.4 lbs.
  • Weight (with 123A batteries) 2.3 lbs.
  • Switching: Selector ring and three-button head switching (constant-on, momentary-on & max-blast setting)
  • Material: High-strength aerospace aluminum; tempered window; Mil-Spec Type III hard anodizing
  • Color: Black
  • Battery: Lithium-ion (included) or 12 123A disposable batteries

The new UDR Dominator from SureFire incorporates a selector ring that has a total of nine useful light settings, ranging from a 14-lumen option that doesn't compromise dark-adapted vision to its ultra-bright 2,400-lumen setting. Three push-button head switches on the flashlight allow the user to select constant-on activation, momentary-on activation or a max-blast setting that delivers the maximum output no matter which output level is chosen.
The SureFire UDR Dominator flashlight is capable of an incredible maximum output of 2,400 lumens, an output previously unheard of with LED technology. The flashlight's ultra-bright output paired with its deep precision reflector results in a far-reaching beam of light, making the Dominator suitable for tactical and search-and-rescue applications.
Constructed from lightweight, high-strength aerospace aluminum that features a Mil-Spec hard anodized finish, the UDR Dominator is built to handle a number of tasks in varied environments. The flashlight has O-ring and gasket seals to protect sophisticated internal electronics from moisture and debris.
