From the Surefire Site Built in USA but not entirely made in USA . "Our best-in-class flashlights, hands-free lights, and WeaponLights are also designed, machined, tested, and assembled in the U.S., but if even one component of our products is entirely or substantially made abroad, we cannot legally mark it as "Made in the U.S.A." In today's competitive global economy, and given our mission of ensuring our best-in-class illumination products continue to stay that way, it's not possible to source every component from within the U.S. We do import a few components - most notably, the finest light emitting diodes (LEDs) from top-notch manufacturers outside the country - to incorporate into our products. All of that said, we do rely on as many American-made parts and components as possible, and the assembly of these components is done under our watchful eye in the U.S. to ensure optimal quality. SureFire is an American company that employs hundreds of hardworking Americans and proudly serves those who venture into harm's way. We intend to keep it that way. All SureFire illumination products are designed, perfected, and manufactured in the USA with the finest materials and components sourced worldwide."
