From Streamlight . . .

Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the ultra-compact and low profile TLR-7® sub, a weapon-mounted tactical light with an ergonomic on/off position rear switch. It is available to fit select GLOCK®, SIG SAUER®, Smith & Wesson®, Beretta®, Springfield Armory® and Heckler & Koch® railed subcompact handguns.

“The latest addition to our popular line of TLR-7 weapon lights is an extremely compact and low profile model that can be mounted on railed subcompact weapons,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Like other models in the line, it has a high power LED that provides extreme brightness for maximizing visibility and targeting capability in personal defense and other tactical situations. And its rear switch on the left and right of the trigger guard allows for ambidextrous operation.”

The new light is available in three different models to fit the GLOCK® 43X MOS/48 MOS and the GLOCK® 43X RAIL/48 RAIL, with slim mounting rails; the SIG SAUER® P365® and the SIG SAUER® P365® XL; and select 1913 short railed subcompact handguns including the Smith & Wesson® M&P® M2.0™ Subcompact, Beretta® PX4 Storm Compact/Subcompacts, Springfield Armory® XD-E™, Springfield Armory® XD-S® and Heckler & Koch® HK45 compacts.

The TLR-7 sub features an LED that delivers 5,000 candela and 500 lumens over a beam distance of 141 meters. Its custom TIR optic produces a concentrated beam that provides both extensive range as well as optimized peripheral coverage. It offers two lighting modes, LED only or LED strobe, each with a run time of 1.5 hours. The light is energized by a single 3 Volt CR123A lithium battery.

The new TLR-7 sub features a one-handed, snap on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. The light also includes a Safe Off feature, locking it so it cannot be turned on accidentally. Each model of the TLR-7 sub features a specialized clamp system for mounting to rails, using the provided key kit.

Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish, the TLR-7 sub weighs 2.39 ounces and measures 2.51 inches in length. It features an IPX7-rated design, making it waterproof to one meter for 30 minutes, as well as impact-resistant construction.

The TLR-7 sub has an MSRP of $225.75, and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

  1. So glad I waited for my p365XL. And it’s cr123a? This is perfect.

    Now to wait on holster makers… lol. I suspect I won’t be using it on the gun for the first three months while I send it in to be fit inside holsters.

    That said, $230? I retract my previous statements. It looks like I won’t be buying it after all. That price is ridiculous – especially from streamlight. Get your shit together streamlight. I hope nobody pays that surefire price. You were supposed to be the cheaper option. Given it’s hard enough to find guns on the market to fit that light right now anyways, maybe lower that price to a respectable $100 range that it’s fit for – like the TLR-6. TLR-6 should be sub $100, and this should be sub $150.

    • NightStick makes one with or without the strobe feature at the same lumens for around $100 ($115 for the strobe feature). I carry it on my 19 and it’s a champ.

  2. Olight PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie is $89.95. And it has a sliding interface that makes it adjustable to your pistol.

    • And for 39% of the price of the Streamlight; I’ll take the made-in-China option.

      I mean, shit, my TLR-3 mounting brackets broke when I banged it against my safe – yes Streamlight has excellent customer service and replaced it; but if they both break form the same force, I can buy 2 O-Lights for the same price and still come out ahead.

    • They are quite odd though. I don’t trust the mounting system and it’s awkward fit in holsters.

    • and it has a non replaceable battery. So you can throw it away when it will no longer take a charge

  3. I’ve been a big streamlight fan for years. The TLR1-HL rides on my G17.
    I had a TLR7 with the original switch on myG19 until I figured out how terrible the ergonomics are.

    Both lights are tough, bright, and reasonably priced.

    So its kind of strange that Streamlight would try to charge 75% more for this TLR7 than for the regular one. If I’m going to spend $200+ for a light, I might as well get an American made Surefire.

  4. Guys, the price is probably the msrp. Streamlight almost doesn’t have a MAP policy, so expect this to show up in stores/online for a lot less. Is guess about the same as a normal tlr-7.
