Streamlight Inc. introduced the TLR-6, an ultra-compact, extremely lightweight weapons light with a red laser, designed to attach to the trigger guard of the Glock 42 and 43 pistols. The product, the first light and laser combination of its kind for subcompact pistols, is designed to maximize visibility and long-range targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications.
"The TLR-6 is a real game changer, the first product of its kind in an emerging category to combine a light and laser in one super-compact package that is designed for Glock 42/43 sub-compact pistols," said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. "Home defense and other tactical users can benefit from its ability to provide targeted bright light down range, as well as its powerful red aiming laser. The light is designed to quickly and securely attach to the trigger guard of the Glock 42 or 43. It also can be stored on these guns so users can more readily identify a potential threat before taking any action."
The TLR-6 uses the latest in C4 LED technology to deliver 100 lumens, 2,000 candela and a beam distance of 89 meters. Its parabolic reflector produces a balance of beam and peripheral illumination. The light features three lighting modes: LED Only, LED/Laser, and Laser Only, with operating run times of one hour for the LED Only or LED/Laser modes, and 11 hours for the Laser Only model. All modes automatically shut off after ten minutes to conserve batteries. The light also uses a 640-660 nm red laser which has an operating temperature range of -20 degrees F to +120 degrees F, permitting usage under a wide variety of weather conditions.
The TLR-6 is powered by two 3 Volt CR-1/3N lithium coin batteries. It features an integrated battery door that permits batteries to be replaced while the light remains mounted on the gun, and eliminates the need to re-sight the laser after a battery change.
The light is manufactured from durable, impact-resistant engineering polymer, measuring 2.30 inches long and weighing 1.27 ounces. It is IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation, and also is impact-resistant tested to one meter.
The TLR-6 comes with Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MSRP is $175.00.
