Streamlight has introduced its TLR-8A and TLR-8AG weapon lights, featuring red or green aiming lasers and offering ergonomic rear switch options with either a low or high position, to match the operator’s shooting style. Both lights feature a rail clamp that attaches and detaches easily from the side of a broad array of compact and full-frame weapons.

The lights feature a power LED that delivers 5,000 candela and 500 lumens over a beam distance of 140m: the TLR-8A offers a 640-660nm red laser to maximise visibility and long-range targeting capability, while the TLR-8AG features a 510-520nm eye-safe green laser to improve the user’s ability to focus on targets during daylight hours. Both lights can be deployed in laser-only mode to keep the gun on target, in LED-only mode to provide bright, focused light, or in dual mode, which uses both light sources.

The run time for both lights is 1.5 hours in LED-only, LED and laser, or strobe modes. In laser-only mode, the TLR-8A provides a run time of 60 hours, while the TLR-8AG delivers 11 hours. Each light is energized by a single 3V CR2 lithium battery.

Fitting securely to a broad range of weapons, the new TLR lights feature a one-handed, snap-on-and-tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. The lights also include a Safe Off feature, locking them so they cannot be turned on accidentally. A key kit is included to securely fit each light to the broadest array of hand guns of any light on the market.

Constructed with 6000 series machined aircraft aluminium with a black anodized finish, each light weighs 2.64oz and measures 2.58in in length. Extensively live-fire tested and featuring an impact-resistant construction, the new models are waterproof to 1m for 30 minutes. They are packaged as the TLR-8A FLEX and TLR-8AG FLEX. Each comes with a high and a low switch.

These compact, lightweight weapon lights are designed to maximise visibility and targeting capability in a variety of law enforcement, concealed carry and home defence applications,” commented the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Ray Sharrah. “They each feature ambidextrous on/off rear switches with low and high positions to suit user preference. And each comes equipped with an integrated colour aiming laser, to enable users to readily identify a potential threat before taking any action.”
