Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, has introduced the TLR-7 A with ergonomic rear switches featuring a low or high position to match users’ shooting styles. The exceptionally lightweight and compact new light delivers 500 lumens for a variety of tactical uses.

“Our newest weapon light features ambidextrous on/off rear switches with low and high positions to suit user preference, and a rail clamp that attaches and detaches easily from the side of compact and full frame weapons,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Like the original TLR-7, it is designed to maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications.”

The TLR-7 A features a power LED that delivers 5,000 candela and 500 lumens over a beam distance of 140 meters. 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 CR2 lithium battery.

Securely fitting to a broad range of weapons, the new TLR-7 A 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. A key kit is included to securely fit the light to the broadest array of hand guns of any light on the market.

Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish, the TLR-7 A weighs 2.40 ounces and measures 2.58 inches in length.

With extensively live-fire tested, impact-resistant construction, the new model features an IPX7 rated design, making it waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes.

The new light is packaged as the TLR-7 A FLEX that comes with a High switch mounted on the light plus an included Low switch. It has an MSRP of $225.75, and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

  1. Weapon lights are improving quite a bit. All of my flashlights and weapon lights are Olight, though. Love ’em and won’t have anything else.

    • Yup. Of all the weapon lights, flashlights I’ve bought over the last couple of years, they have been an Olight product. (4 or 5).
      I am always very pleased and have yet to be disappointed.

        • Now that I have (and appreciate) Olight, I would gladly pay a little more for “Made In America” if the quality remains the same. I like Kanye West’s idea of bringing production of his shoe line to his new Wyoming property, where he intends to build a manufacturing plant and employ ex-prisoners who need jobs and stability. Gives them work and a chance to rebuild their lives, keeps costs down, and gives us our product.

          Are you reading this, Olight?

  2. I like it but it’s worth more than my lowly Taurus. It wouldn’t fit anyway. I may get the new Taurus G3 which WOULD fit on the rail😄

  3. I have a TLR-1 HL 500 Lumen that I like better than my Surefire X-300UB 600 Lumen Ultra. I also have a TLR-HPL Large Reflector 740 Lumen light for the light rails on the Grip-Pods on my Carbines. I also own 7 other Surefire lights.

    Having too many options/switches on a tactical weapon mounted light is NOT a good thing. You do NOT want to divide your attention in a self defense situation.

    You can keep the Olight Chinese/Shitcago crapola.

    • Thixo said Olight is trash, so it must be true. I saw him say so on the Interwebz.

      Have you ever installed and used an Olight? How about several models, and actually compared them to Surefire and others? I have. I’ve made my choice, and you’re free to make yours. But unless you’ve actually used Olight, nobody’s listening to you.

      • I have 3 Olight flashlights, one is a WML. Their quality, durability and reliability are comparable to my streamlights. But Olight has the best magnetic charging systems, IMO. Also, when they have a flash sale, at least every month, you can save 30% to 50% off.

      • NO he pointed out that it is chicom crap. The operative point being it is chicom (PLA). You want to fund the enemy of the US you are wrong. There are equally good NOT chicom choices. Vote with you feet.
