What People are saying about the Streamlight TLR-6:
Excellent Gun light. I have this one for a G19 ...
Excellent Gun light. I have the Streamlight TLR-6 one for a G19 and one for a G43. Love them. Can carry appendix comfortably with these lights/lasers. This replaced a Streamlight TLR-2 on my 19. The pistol can now serve both as my house pistol and for concealed carry. This new rail mount is also excellent. The 100 lumen light is well focused with good spill too. Outside I could quickly "clear hands" to 25-30 yds....my TLR-2 to 60+yds.....but indoors the TLR-2 is too much. The laser holds POA/POI well. $100 for a lifetime warranty....I'm done w/ Crimson Trace's overpriced products with less warranty.
The Streamlight TLR-6 is great for home defense if your vision isn't great
Having a Streamlight TLR-6 light on your home defense weapon is always a plus, and this light has the option of leaving the light on by pressing the button quickly then releasing, or holding it down continuously for light then releasing (after a more extended period, can't remember the specs but about one second or more) and the Streamlight will shut off.
Easy to toggle between the modes of light, light plus laser, or just laser.
My vision sucks, so I wear glasses most of the time, so if something or someone comes into my room, I can quickly get the Streamlight light/laser combo on and (with training) feel good about putting shots on target.
With that, if you have a crappy vision like me, make sure you talk to whoever you're living with about action plans if you have an intruder and come up with a "safe word" so you don't accidentally shoot someone who's not a threat.
Also, the last two times I went to the range, I put about 200 rounds through my shield each time. After each trip, I needed to clean the front of the light from all the buildup it gathered for how it sits pretty much flush with the barrel of the gun.
I use this as my EDC, too, so I picked up a few Kydex holsters that fit the shield plus my light. Holster quickly was the best. Significant turnaround (thanks prime), and I like the way it adapts the weapon better as well (Inside the waistband). I waited on two other Kydex holsters for seven weeks and wasn't nearly as impressed (checkout the Holster shield 9mm + tlr6 review for those details).
I don't get paid for any of these recommendations, so while I might sound like a fanboy, I'm just giving you my honest opinion.
All said and done, this Streamlight light/laser combo looks SO clean on my shield, and I haven't lost any control in my grip because of it either. I highly recommend it, and I hope this review helps as you sort through your options!
I am happy with the streamlined profile which should make carrying easier
I purchased the Streamlight TLR-6 to replace my Streamlight TLR-1 HL for my Glock 29 Gen4. I am pleased with the streamlined profile, which should make carrying more comfortable. The light output is pretty bright but not as blinding as the TLR-1 HL while indoors. However, one suggestion I have would be to make the lens a 1/4" further forward for a flusher fit with the barrel.
Weapon-mounted lights for CCW
This little Streamlight TLR-6 light is fantastic. It brings a level of performance to the compact handgun that has never before existed. This is not a go-to-war light, nor is it for a go-to-war gun. But it was unthinkable 20 years ago that you could have a good, functional weapon-mounted flashlight on a compact pistol that wasn't either overly cumbersome or complete junk. This little light is not as robust as a Streamlight TLR-1 or an X300, but it's also not something that you will ever use to pistol-whip someone, and it's not going on a duty gun.
The roughly 100 lumens of light is enough for moving around in a house or checking around a darkened car at night. The recent trend towards bright-as-the-sun lights is counterproductive. The X300 now throws out so much light that it will blind you when used at night in a room with light-colored walls. 100-200 lumens is perfect for indoor use, and this light comes in the right at the low end of that.
Lastly, holsters are already available for this combination. This light and the new SureFire XC-1 are going to bring weapon-mounted lights into everyday use for CCW. And that is a perfect thing.
and if you order the correct one for you pistol model it fits like a glove
You can't beat it for the Streamlight TLR-6 price, and if you order the correct one for your pistol model, it fits like a glove. I have only taken it out once in the desert after getting it, and it took me a little time sighting it in due to me moving the windage and elevation adjustments too much. You only have to turn them a little for movement. Once sighted in around 25 feet, it was accurate, mind you I did this outside in natural light in the desert morning. Later in the day, it was a little hard to see in full light, but surprisingly enough, it was still possible, depending on the color of the target. This will be used basically for home protection in close quarters, and I'm sure it will work great for what I bought it for. The Streamlight TLR-6 flashlight is only 100 lumens so don't expect blinding brightness, that's not what it was designed for, but is perfect for clearing rooms and identifying intruders. My advice is to thread the mounting screws carefully and tighten them evenly, but don't overtighten. I'm still researching a holster that will work, but there are a few companies out there.
Perfect for the application. XD 45 4" Home Defense
I wanted something for an XD firearm. Something with a reputation for quality, made sense, easy to use. Controls are easy to use, though it might be a bit of a stretch for the trigger finger. That's fine; I try to have two hands on the firearm anyway.
Casts enough light for any home situation, works well in the backyard. If you're out of the valid range for the light, you're not in imminent danger, unless you're being fired at. I wouldn't want a light at that point.
The laser aligns well and holds zero.
I am contemplating getting one for my XD 9 sub, as well. I already know it fits.
