Detailed review

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on September 16, 2013
Folks, A word of caution for a very specific situation: I own multiple streamlight and Surefire products and am a military user of remote switches on handguns/long-guns. I'm not an expert but I have more experience than many. My Glock contour remote switch has a touchy electrical connection on the grip (paddle portion works fine). When I try to use the laser or laser/light on my TLR-2G, it doesn't work correctly (in laser and light mode or laser/light strobing mode). What narrows down the issue is the laser and light get brighter when I press the paddle with the grip already depressed. I've tested the TLR-2G with the standard backplate and with the rifle remote switch. Both of those work perfectly. I want to be clear on this point: I have a TLR-1 (C4 LED) and it works just fine but also gets brighter when I depress the paddles in addition to the grip. I'll be discussing this with Streamlight and I have confidence that they'll address the issue. I've become a strong believer in Streamlight as they produce a solid product for a much lower price than Surefire. Again, I own both and have use both companies products in combat so don't think I'm throwing either company under the bus. This is just a minor issue with a very specific quirk.
Pros: Ergonomics
Cons: reliability in specific mode on TLR-2G...

Defective product - Streamlight no help

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 16, 2013
Works well with light or laser only. When the light+laser toggle is on, it activates only the light. Sent it back to Streamlight for servicing. No one ever contacted me to diagnose the problem and it was simply returned with a note stating "No manufacturer's defect found." There is a defect, but because they couldn't find it, the customer is left holding the bag. I feel cheated - wasted money on the purchase and wasted time and money for shipping to the Streamlight service center.
Cons: Does not active the light and laser simultaneously...

This switch is a 100% improvement update for TLR-2

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 29, 2013
2 years ago, I bought the TLR2 for my home defense gun...A Glock 21 (full sized .45 auto). The bright light, choice of laser only/light only/ both laser and light, and batteries that won't run down on you in a matter of months (my original batteries are still strong as ever), makes the TLR a fantastic choice. And while the middle lever was an improvement over those "toy tactiCOOL" laser setups where you are supposed to react fast in an emergency and push "pin head sized" buttons....The TLR STILL required that when needed, you had to grab your gun, aim with one hand, throw the lever & hold it down with your support hand, watch for the light, engage your support hand in a double handed hold if you shoot with 2 hands, and watch the threat when preparing to fire!!! This light/laser combo was great already but this switch really is a modernizing upgrade! No more extra time wasting gyrations. With this switch, you can now employ your TLR & handgun at the same time, using one hand if necessary. Crimson Trace for some time lead the market in the REAL tactical laser market due to the quick, practical, "one hand employment products," and now Streamlight is doing it also. And for almost the same money, you get the laser and the light. I have never seen this switch sold in gun stores, so my only concern was whether it would fit my .45, as the ad listed 3 weeks ago, said it fits the Glock 19, which is a 9mm. Well, it fits perfectly, and will likely fit any of the standard sized glocks. I...

THE MISSING LINK

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 13, 2012
THIS EXTENSION IS THE MISSING LINK FOR A VERY FAST AND PRACTICAL WAY TO USE THE LIGHT. ANYBODY THAT HAS BEEN - FOR REAL- IN A LIFE/DEATH SITUATION KNOWS THAT TRYING TO PLAY WITH ANY LITTLE SWITCHES OR TRY TO FIGURE OUT ANY THING OTHER THAN -VERY GROSS- MOTOR MOVEMENTS IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE.
EXCELLENT ITEM!
Pros: PRACTICAL
Cons: NONE!...
