SureFire has a reputation in the flashlight community for manufacturing some of the toughest lights around, as evidenced by the widespread use of their lights in military and survival applications. Many law enforcement and military personnel swear by SureFires, and the ruggedness of the lights makes up for the sometimes generational delay in LED technology that they employ.

It's been a long time coming, but SureFire has finally embraced the 18650 battery configuration with the recent release of the P1R Peacekeeper. Like all SureFires, the Peacekeeper is over-engineered for toughness and brutally concise in its function. Using a CREE XM-L2 LED, it's able to throw 600 lumens on high for 1.75 hours and 15 lumens on low for 46 hours. The P1R comes with its own 2600 mAh battery, charger, and car kit, and is compatible with many aftermarket clips and batteries.

The Peacekeeper Tactical seems like a 'must own' for me.
I've been using a Streamlight Strion rechargeable for a few years now, but think this would be a perfect replacement.

I've been researching Surefires a whole lot, and this along with the stuff they showed at Shot Show 2015 have gotten me quite excited about the brand. Would be quite nice to own one and finally see what the military-grade quality fuss is all about!

I know this is an older post, but maybe I could still provide some info...

Not sure if this is/was a widespread issue, but my personal research indicates it may have been until it was addressed:

When you unscrew the tailcap to remove the battery, you'll notice the spiral metal contact inside. There was a production issue where the metal tip would be bent outwards into the battery, causing the light to shut off on impact / not turn on at all occasionally, and gouge permanent swirl marks into the end of the batteries. This sounds much worse than it is though.

Thankfully this was a very simple fix. I bent the sharp metal end back in and I've never had an issue since. I own both the Peacekeeper and the Peacekeeper Tactical, and I love them both. Built like tanks, would highly recommend. I also own the Surefire Maximus headlamp, and would recommend that as well.

Older post, but I'm still here. :) Thanks for the information. I never actually purchased this model and recently I got a E2T-MV Tactician model from Surefire which has proven to be great.
