Possessing a light on your pistol is never a bad idea. The capacity to see what we are shooting is always on top of the priority listing. Regrettably, most weapon lights are made for complete framed pistols, and the little men seem to be left out. With the growing popularity of the subcompact market these times it was inevitable that a purpose-built light would not be far behind. I wasn’t surprised to see Streamlight cross the finish line ahead of everybody else with its own new Streamlight TLR-6 pistol light. Made mainly for Glock models 42 and 43 pistols and weighing in at a mere 36 g, the TLR-6 packs a great deal of bang in a little bundle.
Activated from both sides by a rubberized button, the C4 Light-emitting diode bulb ends up an impressive 100 lumens with a runtime of approximately one hour on two little lithium-ion batteries. This is much more than enough light for close quarters work and enough light to illuminate just about whatever the small Glock pistols are effective at hitting. And if that isn’t sufficient, the TLR-6 also comes with a red laser for all those times when you’re unable to get a look throughout the sights. In laser only mode you will receive a whopping 11 hours of runtime out from the batteries.
Mounting was easy via three screws that hold the two parts of the body together. The back battery door on the bottom is your final. The battery door on the bottom is the last bit of retention and once it’s both my trigger finger and support hand thumb indexed on the activation buttons. With a both my trigger finger and support hand thumb indexed on the activation buttons both my trigger finger and support hand thumb naturally indexed on the activation buttons. I’d consider myself to have average sized hands, but I think anyone might easily reach the big buttons.
The TLR-6 contains three modes: only light, laser only, and also a light/laser combo. Lover of lasers as I just favorite. I am not a huge fan of lasers as I just cannot be allowed me to keep pressure while firing so. I suppose I have an older allowed me to maintain pressure while shooting so accurate iron sights. I worked my way throughout the firehouse on the scope and found the bundle to be quite convenient and provide light. The large buttons way of turning that already that I did not lose my source. I was amazed. The TLR-6 is made from the United States with a limited lifetime guarantee, and the superior Streamlight is known for. It’s an excellent way of turning that already notable Glock 42 or 43 in a bundle that is well rounded.
