Ultra-Lightweight, Low-Profile Tactical Light Features “Eye-Safe” Green Aiming Laser
Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, added a new low-profile model to its extensive line of TLR rail-mounted tactical lights, the TLR-8 G, featuring an “Eye Safe” Green Aiming Laser. The exceptionally lightweight and compact light is designed to maximise visibility and long-range targeting capability in a variety of tactical applications.
“Concealed carry, law enforcement, military and home defence users alike can benefit from the TLR-8 G’s targeted bright light, as well as its powerful green laser,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “The laser improves users’ ability to focus on targets during daylight hours, when the color green appears brighter to the human eye than other colored lasers. The light also can be stored on a handgun so that users can more readily identify a potential threat before taking any action.”
Featuring the latest in power LED technology, the TLR-8 G delivers 500 lumens and 5,000 candela over a 140-meter beam distance. The light features three lighting modes, including Laser-Only to keep the gun on target; LED-Only mode to provide bright, focused light; and dual mode, which uses both light sources. Run times are 1.5 hours in LED-Only, LED and Laser, and strobe modes, and 11 hours in Laser-Only mode.
Easily mounted to a wide range of weapons, the TLR-8 G features Streamlight’s one-handed, snap-on-and-tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. A key kit is included to securely fit the 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-8 G weighs 2.64 ounces and measures just 2.15 inches in length. With extensively live-fire tested, impact-resistant construction, the new model features an IPX4-rated design for water-resistant operation.
