Streamlight TLR-1 opinions?
#1
As the title says (hopefully to EMs stringent standards lol) I am looking at the Streamlight TLR-1 weapon light. Has anyone used one? Any thoughts good or bad?

I have one and like it a lot. I keep it on a Glock 30sf and that is my night stand gun. I'm able to keep both hands on my pistol, and the light is very bright so I can easily clear rooms in my house at night. During the winter time when it is very cold and very windy, my burglar alarm will occassionally go off (hence why I know it's awesome for clearing rooms). Personally, I'm not a fan of strobe mode, but the tlr-1s (the model with strobe mode included) is 30 lumens brighter at 160 lumens compared to the model without the strobe mode.

Which firearm do you plan on mounting it to?

It'll be going on a Springfield XDm 9mm. The original, not the 3.8" version.

Okay, because if you are buying a sub-compact, then you might want to check out the TLR-3. If it is not the sub-compact, then the tlr-1 should be fine.

My big gorilla hands are too big for one of those tiny little guns. Even with the big backstrap and the frame having to fit a 19rd magazine, my hand makes it look like I'm holding an C96 Mauser.

These are easy to take on and off isnt it? I would have to keep taking it off and on since my holster doesn't fit it. I'd have to get a new holster if I want to leave it on

I was going to order a new holster anyway. It's only $10 more for the light bearing model. I have holsters for carrying without the light.

I'm taking a Low Light course in February and will use my TLR-3. I've shot a good number of rounds with it to check for reliability but a full day course should give it a thorough examination. We'll see how it holds up, hopefully well.

I bought 2 Raven holsters with light attachment, 1 each for M&P FS and Compact.

I ordered the light and got it three days later. Ordered the TLR-1 and was sent the TLR-1s instead. No big deal. The light output is supposed to be 160 lumens but there was a sticker on the box mine came in that said 300 lumens. I believe it too. Damn thing is bright.

I've had a TLR1 on my glock 20c (10mm) for almost a year now, still the original battery, still functions normal, and is still as bright as the day I bought it. I occassionally have to clean the lense, thats about it though.
