Streamlight, manufacturer of various weapon lighting and laser systems has announced that the previously introduced TLR-6 combination laser / light is now available in a Universal Kit. The new kit includes adapters for 18+ sub-compact handguns.
The Universal Kit includes housings for most of the popular sub-compact handguns on the market. The original TLR-6 was released fitting only the Glock 42 (.380 ACP) and Glock 43 (9mm) single-stack handguns. With the Universal Kit, Streamlight touts compatibility with a myriad of makes and models using six unique housings including:
- M&P Shield
- Sig Sauer
The TLR-6 is a combination light and laser systems that combines a C4 LED light (Rated at 100 lumens, 2,000 candela, and a beam distance of 89 meters) and a red laser (640 – 660 nm). The LED Light uses a reflector to balance beam and peripheral light (personal note – this is good, as subcompacts really dont have a need for beam-heavy lights).
The TLR-6 is rated to work in temperatures ranging from -20 F to 120 F or -29 Celsius to 48 Celsius for our readers outside the United States. The TLR-6 is powered from CR-1/3N lithium batteries that can be replaced while mounted to the firearm (thus never losing zero). The unit is IPX4 rated for water resistance and is rated as impact-resistant to one meter (typical drop height).
Individual light and laser modules are available for $175 each
