The Streamlight TLR-1s is a weapon-mounted light like no other. 160 lumens of blinding light will light up the darkest of alleys, rooms, caves or where ever the bad guys may lie in wait. the feature of this light that makes it revolutionary is the strobe feature. The Strobe feature of this light is very disorienting. We were able to cover alot of ground gaining a tactical advantage on each other using this light.
The Streamlight tlr-1s mounts securely to your weapon and doesnt loosen during recoil. Its weight is noticeble but not heavy. weapon lights actually steady the muzzle of some polymer framed firearms like the Glock 17 I tested it on. For this reason they are not allowed in IPDA competitions which I think is bogus because my home defense pistol has a weapon light. I understand their reasons though.
The TLR-1s can easily be mounted to your rail system on a AR also. I personally have replaced the Surefire on my AR with this light.
Streamlights TLR-1s is definately a GO. The strobe feature is a must have for law enforcement, SWAT and SRT teams, Military or civilians looking for new ways to gain the edge on the bad guys. I wouldnt want to go against this light in a late night gun battle. Beware: video below can be disorienting.
