Streamlight Adds Two Models to TLR Weapon Light Series


EAGLEVILLE, PA   – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, added two new low profile models to its extensive line of TLR® rail-mounted tactical lights, the TLR-7® and the TLR-8®, which also features an integrated red aiming laser. Extraordinarily lightweight, the new lights are among the smallest rail-mounted lights in the TLR line; each delivers 500 lumens for a variety of tactical uses.Ultra-Light and Low Profile TLR-7® and TLR-8®; Each Delivers 500 Lumens

“These super bright new tactical lights are designed to fit a broad array of compact and full- frame weapons, making them effective for a variety of concealed carry and law enforcement uses,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Both models provide amazing light for a wide variety of tactical situations, whether for directly illuminating a subject or disorienting a target with the strobe mode. And the TLR-8’s red aiming laser enables users to readily identify a potential threat before taking any action.” 

Each energized by a single 3 Volt CR123A lithium battery, the TLR-7 and TLR-8 feature a power LED that delivers 4,300 candela and 500 lumens. The TLR-7 offers two lighting modes, LED-Only or LED strobe, each with a run time of 1.5 hours. The TLR-8 also offers a 640-660nm red laser that increases the user’s ability to focus on a target. The light 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 using both light sources. Run times are 1.5 hours in LED-Only, LED and Laser, and strobe modes, and 18 hours in Laser-Only mode. 

Securely fitting 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 aluminum with a black anodized finish, the TLR-7 and TLR-8 weigh 2.40 and 2.64 ounces respectively. Both lights measure just 2.15 inches in length. 

With extensively live-fire tested, impact-resistant construction, the new models feature an IPX7-rated design, making them waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes. They have an operating temperature range of -40°F to +120°F, permitting usage under a wide variety of weather conditions.  

The TLR-7 and TLR-8 come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. They have an MSRP of $215.00 and $350.00, respectively.
