Streamlight Inc. upgraded the lumen light output and intensity of its "traditional" TLR gun-mounted tactical lights. The upgraded models include the TLR-1 and the TLR-2, as well as the strobe-equipped versions of these lights, the TLR-1 s and the TLR-2 s. Both TLR-2 models also feature an integrated red aiming laser.
All four models now provide 300 lumens and 12,000 candela peak beam intensity. Each features a C4 LED that is impervious to shock with a lifetime of 50,000 hours. In addition, Streamlight’s proprietary deep-dish parabolic reflector provides a concentrated beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation. The TLR-2 models feature a 650-660 nanometer red laser for long-range targeting.
With extensively live-fire tested, impact-resistant construction, all four models are manufactured from 6000-series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish. The housing for the TLR-2 and TLR-2 s laser is fabricated from a high-impact, chemically resistant engineered polymer.
The upgraded models continue to provide 2.5 hours of continuous runtime to the 10% output level, with solid state current regulation for consistent illumination level.
All four lights offer a momentary-to-steady, on-off switch, readily accessible by either right or left hands. The TLR-2 models also provide a three-position mode selector switch for laser only, LED only, or both modes together. The strobe feature on the TLR-1 s and the TLR-2 s is activated by a double-tap of the momentary paddle.
Securely fitting to a broad range of weapons, the TLR lights feature a one-handed, snap-on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching the lights. The lights mount directly to handguns with Glock-style rails and to all Picatinny rails. All four lights come with keys for Glock-style, Picatinny, Beretta 90two, S&W 99 and S&W TSW rails. The laser sighting feature of both TLR-2 models offers highly accurate sight repeatability when remounting.
The TLR-1 models weigh 4.18 ounces while the TLR-2 models weigh 4.72 ounces. All four measure 3.39 inches in length and are powered by two 3-volt CR123A lithium batteries, which have a storage life of 10 years. The TLR-1 models feature an IPX7 rated design, making them waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes, while the TLR-2 models feature an IPX4 rated design for water-resistant operation.
All four lights come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MSRP for the TLR-1 is $194, and the MSRP for the TLR-1 s is $199. The MSRPs for the TLR-2 and TLR-2 s are $483 and $488, respectively.
