Streamlight Inc. is introducing new laser-equipped models of their compact TLR-6 rail mount weaponlight to fit some of America’s most-popular subcompact handguns, including the Springfield Armory Hellcat and the Glock 43X and 48 MOS and Rail models.

The company also launched a version of its TLR-6 for SIG Sauer P365 and P365 XL subcompact handguns that comes without a laser module. These new models are all designed to securely attach to the rail and trigger guard of a subcompact pistol in order to maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of concealed carry, home defense and tactical situations.

“Our popular line of TLR-6 weapon lights continues to grow with the addition of more laser-equipped models to fit a variety of popular subcompact guns,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “These newest light/laser models not only offer targeted bright light, they also feature a powerful red aiming laser to enable users to more readily identify a potential threat before taking action. And, the Non-Laser version of the TLR-6 for SIG Sauer P365 gives agencies with non-laser policies and other users an ultra-bright weapons light option for the handgun.”

Each of the new models of TLR-6 lights delivers 100 lumens and 2,000 candela over a beam distance of 89 meters. They also feature a parabolic reflector that produces a balance of beam and peripheral illumination. The laser models offer three lighting modes: LED light only, LED with laser and laser only mode. The operating run times for the various modes are one hour for the LED only and LED/laser modes, and 11 hours for the laser only mode. 

The new lights are powered by two (2) 3 Volt CR-1/3N lithium coin batteries. They feature an integrated battery door that permits batteries to be replaced while the light remains attached on the gun, eliminating the need to re-sight the laser after a battery change. 

Each light is manufactured from impact-resistant engineered polymer and is IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation as well as impact-resistant tested to one meter. The TLR-6 for the Springfield Armory Hellcat is 2.33 inches long, the TLR-6 for the Glock 43X and Glock 48 Rail is 2.12 inches long, and the Non-Laser TLR-6 for SIG Sauer P365 measures 2.5 inches long. 

The TLR-6 for the Springfield Armory Hellcat and the TLR-6 for the Glock 43X and Glock 48 Rail have an MSRP of $187.43, while the Non-Laser TLR-6 for SIG Sauer P365 has an MSRP of $131.30. More information on these lights and other products from Streamlight is available at streamlight.com.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
