Streamlight TLR-2 IRW


Streamlight is now offering an IR model of the TLR-2 light and laser aiming unit.  The TLR-2 IRW is designed for use on long guns or full sized handguns with a Picatinny or other accessory rail.

The unit uses a white light that puts out 300 lumens and 12,000 candela.  On a pair of CR123A batteries, the light will run for 2.5 hours.

The TLR-2 IRW has a Class 1 IR laser that works with NV gear to “enhance long-range targeting capability” but is still considered “eye safe.”  The unit will run for 45+ hours on the laser alone.

MSRP for the TLR-2 IRW is $575.

    Sure, $575 for a glorified $20 LED light and a $50 laser; no thanks.

    I’m looking at a Streamlight TLR light only for my home defense pistol, a IWI Jericho 941S. Which TLR would you guys recommend for it?

      If you wanna save over $100, get the TLR-4 (plastic model). I bought the TLR-2 and put it on my Glock and then got to thinking “hmm…aluminum light on plastic frame pistol”…shoulda saved the $100 for ammo.

    • I own a Jericho (and love it) but like Clint used a TLR-4 for some time rather than the TLR-2. For the last year and half though I’ve been 100% inforce on all my guns. The APL suits me well:

        Nice photo. I ended up buying the TLR-1s since it has strobe. I did look at the APL but decided against it after reading several reviews on how easily it falls from the pistol while shooting.
