I run the Streamlight TLR 1 HL on my 10mm. I love it. It's 800 Lumens and I bought the red and green filters to slap on it when stalking hogs. Good times I tell ya.

I prefer a Streamlight TLR 1-HL. Good price, long battery life and very reliable.

I've been running the Inforce APLc for the Glock. I like the paddle actuation and it's slimmer than any other one's out there.

Indoors I prefer the standard TLR-1. They HL is too bright indoors.

Outdoors I use the TLR-1HL.

Really depends on the model.

TLR6 on my 43

X300U on my g19
And a TLR1 as a spare

Hard to go wrong with Surefire or Streamlight.

I use a PL mini 2 on my Glock 19. I like that the bezel is at the end of the muzzle and it is a magnetic charger

This past Friday.

They had had one mounted on g45 and one on a 17. It doesn't stick out in any direction on the 45. I'd say it's the size of the battery compartment on a tlr 1.

Function button is quite a bit smaller but I'm also used to the big paddle deals on the 1 for the past 12 years.

The 45 with the light and red dot was definitely a cool package.

Edit..they have a tlr7a with a rear button option like before

It depends on the model and what else you want to do with it.

Surefire X300U is on my woods carry; Streamlight TLR-7A is on a CC (will sit flush on Glock 19), Streamlight TLR-6 is on another CC, Streamlight TLR-8AG (green laser/light combo) is on a HD pistol so wife can use if needed (it’s a 7A with a Green laser).

You can’t go wrong with Streamlight or Surefire, but the switches are different, so just find what works for you.

Good place to order a Surefire: https://www.armsunlimited.com/SureFire-s/1980.htm

Good place to order a Streamlight (use code Red10): https://www.premiumselectsupplies.co...ry/streamlight

I ordered both the TLR-1 HL and the TLR-7, took them both upstairs and compared them in the total dark comparing both controls and brightness.

The TLR-7 is going back and another TLR-1 HL is on order.

I carry a Streamlight TLR 1 on my G17 duty pistol. I really like it, simple, no strobing or any of that other fancy stuff, its either momentarily on/off or fixed on/off depending on which way you push the switch.
