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

Comfort is a big part of daily carry, and it should be. If packing your favorite handgun feels like you are smuggling a shoebox (or an angry hedgehog), then you will squirm, shift and give away the fact that you are carrying. Hot weather makes it even worse, as light clothing offers less in the way of concealment. When EDC becomes too much of a hassle, some just leave it at home.
