First Look: Nightstick TSM-11G Handgun Weapon Light

posted on September 25, 2020

Nightstick is launching the TSM-Series of subcompact handgun weapon lights. The company's first product is the new TSM-11G light, created to work with some of today's most popular pistols. The TSM-11G is designed to securely mount to the front of the trigger guard and dustcover of Glock G42, G43, G43X, and G48 handguns and has an Li-Ion-powered light that uses a magnetically-coupled MagMate USB charging cable. This rechargeable battery eliminates the need to replace multiple disposable coin cell batteries after every hour of use. The white light of TSM-11G the integral green laser are both designed to enhance threat identification and target discrimination in a wide variety of tactical scenarios.

“Nightstick is committed to expanding its line of weapon lights for the self-defense and concealed-carry market. This TSM-Series introduces a powerful, rechargeable family of subcompact weapon lights with green aiming lasers designed specifically for handguns without accessory rail,” says Russell Hoppe, Director of Marketing. “We created the TSM-11G to provide Glock subcompact handgun owners a small, low profile integrated weapon light for target and background identification when life depends on light."

The TSM-11G light features an LED that delivers a 150-lumen bright white beam and 2700 candela for up to 45 minutes in order to illuminate objects and potential threats. The dual switches provide the shooter with a tactile click in either momentary or constant-on use. The light weighs 1.3 ounces and is constructed from a durable, impact-resistant engineered polymer. The light, laser or light & laser modes are activated by holding one switch down while toggling through the modes with the alternate. The laser is easily zeroed to the user’s preferred distance with built-in elevation and windage adjusters.

The TSM-11G is rated for IP-X4 water resistance and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Included with the light is an Allen screwdriver for installation, along with a MagMate USB charging cable and a complementary combination gun lock for added safety and peace of mind while charging. MSRP for the TSM-11G light is $164.28, and for more information, please visit
