My second one

by Boyd, from United States, TN Written on November 3, 2014
This my second purchase of the Streamlight TLR-1. Very well constructed, dependable, and long battery life are the reason I bought another one. They are small and the mounting system will snap right on the rail in a hurry, no real need to tighten the "round thing with the slot in it" if you don`t have time. I like the switch, momentary or full on. Good stuff....

rail-mounted pistol light

by RegT, from United States, MT Written on October 16, 2014
This weapon-mounted handgun light by Streamlight is superb. Easily mounted, easily operated, and bright. The only reason I didn't give it five starts is because Streamlight now offers a high lumen (TLR-1 HL) model that provides 640 lumens of blinding white LED light. I have one mounted on my Glock G22, and it is my primary defensive house gun. I don't know why Optics Planet doesn't sell it (at least I am unable to locate it through their online catalog), because it is superior to the TLR-1, although slightly more expensive.

For those who are uncomfortable paying high prices for CR123A batteries, be advised there are rechargeable CR123a's (called - obviously - RCR123A's) that can be recharged over 1000 times (manufacturer claims 2000, but I am being conservative) in a chemistry that will _not_ overcharge and catch fire. It is the LiFePO4 lithium battery, and is available through batteryjunction.com and through Amazon. The charger and 6 batteries sell for $23.99 at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Kits-RCR123A-LiFePO4-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B001EYHO9G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1413479525&sr=8-2&keywords=LiFePO4+battery+charger) and for $16.99 with only two batteries at http://www.batteryjunction.com/2rc375reliba.html. Battery Junction sells the batteries separately for $3.05 each.

Be aware that these batteries must be used with a charger designed to charge their particular chemistry (iron phosphate, LiFePO4). Tenergy and Nitecore both make chargers that will work....
Pros:
  • Well-constructed, very bright
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • defensive

Recent Weaponlight purchase

by Rob, from United States, GA Written on September 6, 2014
In my career, I have used multiple illumination systems, primarily Insight for tactical lasers and pistol lights, Streamlight for handhelds. Right tool for the right job. I decided to update my twelve year old Insight M3 I wore on my pistols. I first wanted to upgrade the bezel with a more powerful LED, but it was so old that the LED bezel was not available anymore! No problem. My research led me to the Streamlight TRL-1s. This was perfect for my latest AR pistol build and as an upgrade to my carry pistols. As I read many reviews, I noticed the ambivalence towards the earlier 160 lumens and the strobe option. I received the latest 300 lumen model and I was not disappointed. This, like all other Streamlight products I have used, is build like a tank. Mounting is rock-solid and I have complete confidence that it will not accidentally come off due to hard use. The 300 lumen output is well suited for room clearing distances to large warehouse areas. On a pistol it may seem a bit excessive, especially if it will only be used within the confines of a user's home. NOTE: white painted walls may work against you. For tactical use, especially on a carbine, or SMG sized weapon, it is ideal as it will more than probably be used at extended pistol distances (7- plus meters). The strobe feature is not an add on gimmick. This gives you another force level option that will allow you to identify, disorient and close the distance with your target. As with other tools, proper training will en...

TLR-1Tactical Light

by Bob, from United States, NH Written on August 21, 2014
I was a little hesitant to purchase this because I was satisfied with my Surefire X200 mounted on my Sig 229. I purchased the TLR-1 because it would fit my PX4 and new holster I wanted to order. So the TLR-1 and holster arrived and I am very happy with the complete combination. I really like the TLR-1 much better than the X200 on my Sig 229. The beam is brighter, wider and the left side switch, when pushed down is momentary on, which I really like. I also prefer the TLR-1 mount because it is very secure. A great Tactical Light....
Pros:
  • Bright, crisp white light
  • secure mount
  • wide beam
  • momentary on switch
Cons:
  • None.
Best Used for:
  • Tactical Low Light

Streamlight TLR-1 best light for the money!!

by WSP, from United States, AZ Written on July 30, 2014
I have several of these lights and they are the best in every way. I have them mounted on (2) O/U shotguns, an AR, Glocks and other handguns. They are easy to mount, light weight, solid, work every time and produce very nice light and pattern. you can not go wrong with this light, and the price is outstanding!!You can use a pressure switch or the toggle. I use the toggle because it is simpler, cleaner and works very well....

No Strobe

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on September 5, 2013
The TRL lights are fantastic. This is the 5th one I have purchased. VERY easy to operate. I was a little pissed when I tuned this one on. I was 100% sure I ordered the one with the strobe, and this one did not have the strobe. I checked my order, and no strobe. Caution - make sure you press the right button when ordering.
Pros: Very good ergonomics, solid construction, easy to use.
Cons: No strobe....

Outstanding Light, Outstanding Value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MS Written on August 29, 2013
Outstanding light, highly recommended. I like it better than the X300 because it is a little shorter and fits a little better on my G17. Easy to remove and swap onto another gun if necessary, but is also extremely solid on the gun. I've shot about 500 rounds with the light on the gun and it hasn't needed any tightening.
Pros: Lightweight, very bright, easy to use, momentary switch
Cons: None...
