Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices, has designed the TLR-9™ rail mounted tactical light to be used with full frame handguns. Featuring a slim, compact design, the new light offers ergonomic rear switches with either a low or high position to match users’ shooting styles, while providing 1,000 lumens.


“This lightweight new tactical light is engineered to be both sleek and powerful, featuring a high power LED for extreme brightness and extensive range, as well as good peripheral coverage,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “It also features an ambidextrous on/off rear switch with low and high positions to suit user preference. And it fits a wide variety of full frame handguns, making it an ideal light for first responder and tactical applications.”

Securely fitting to a broad range of weapons, the TLR-9™ features a one-handed, snap on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching it. The light also includes a Safe Off feature, locking it to prevent accidental activation and save batteries. A key kit is also included to securely fit the light to a broad array of handguns.

The TLR-9™ uses a power LED to provide 1,000 lumens and 10,000 candela over a 200-metre beam distance with a run time of 1.5 hours; the light’s strobe mode offers 3 continuous hours of run time. The light is powered by two 3 Volt CR123A lithium batteries.

Constructed with durable 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodised finish, the TLR-9™ features an IPX7-rated design, making it waterproof up to 1 metre for 30 minutes. Extensively live-fire tested with impact-resistant construction, the TLR-9™ is packaged as the TLR-9™ FLEX that comes with a High switch mounted on the light, plus an included Low switch.
