New for 2016, Streamlight has expanded its ProTac® family with two new gun-mounted tactical lights, the ProTac® Rail Mount 1 and ProTac® Rail Mount 2. These lights are exceptionally low profile mounting very close to your weapon’s Picatinny rail. Both of these lights feature high/low/strobe settings and TEN-TAP programming. For readers unfamiliar with the TEN-TAP feature, it allows the operator to select from a menu of output configurations that best suite mission requirements.
On high the ProTac Rail Mount 2 delivers 625 lumens. Powered by (2) CR123A batteries the Rail Mount 2 delivers 2 hours of runtime.
The ProTac Rail Mount 1 accepts runs on a single 3V CR123A lithium battery OR one AA alkaline battery. On lithium batteries this light delivers 350 lumens on high. With an alkaline battery it provides 150 lumens. Run times for the high setting are 1 hour and 45 minutes with a lithium battery, and one hour and 30 minutes with a AA alkaline battery.
With the standard push-button switch installed, both lights are rated IPX7 for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes; the lights are IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation when the remote switch is installed. Extensively live fire tested, the lights feature an impact-resistant construction and an operating temperature of -40o F to +120o F.
The ProTac Rail Mount 1 and 2 have an MSRP of $175.00 and $190.00, respectively. Each comes with a remote pressure switch, push-button tail cap switch, remote retaining clips, double-sided tape and zip ties. The Rail Mount 1 also includes one AA alkaline and one CR123A lithium battery, while the Rail Mount 2 includes two CR123A lithium batteries. Both lights are covered by Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Also new for 2016, Streamlight introduced a coyote version of their very successful TLR-1 HL. These lights can be mounted on a variety of rail equipped pistols and long guns and deliver a whopping 800 lumens, a user programmable strobe that can be enabled/disabled, IPX7 waterproof to 1m for 30min, runs on (2) CR123A batteries and available in Black, Flat Dark Earth or Flat Dark Earth Brown
Streamlight’s new PiggyBack charger is a charging station for the company’s Li-ion battery stick, sold separately, and additionally provides a secure and convenient way to hold your Strion light while your battery stick charges. The charger features a dual power input – USB port or “traditional” AC/DC charging. The integrated micro-USB interface is specifically designed to guide the plug into place for a secure connection. The Piggy Back charger does not charge other USB devices like a smart device or cell phone.
Streamlight® also announce its new ProTac HL® 4, a high lumen (HL) handheld flashlight that delivers 2,200 lumens white light. The “dual fuel” light also permits a choice of either 3V CR123A lithium or Streamlight’s new 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries. The light offers high / medium / low settings, as well as a strobe. The light’s TEN-TAP® programmable switch allows users to select high/strobe/low (the factory default); high only; or low/medium/high programs.
On high, it delivers 2,200 lumens and a run time of up to 1 hour and 45 minutes, depending on the power source. On low, the light provides 60 lumens and a run time of up to 43 hours. The run time for the light’s strobe is up to 3.5 hours, depending on the battery used.
The ProTac HL 4 is powered by either four 3V CR123A lithium batteries (included) or two of Streamlight’s new Lithium Ion 18650 rechargeable batteries. Streamlight offers an 18650 Battery Charger that can recharge either one or two batteries simultaneously, and permits charging through either AC/DC or USB power sources.
Streamlight introduced the TLR6 late in 2015 for the Glock 42 and 43 pistols. The light/laser combo was so well received that Streamlight created the TLR6 Universal Kit.
The Universal Weapon Kit for its TLR-6® pistol light includes a light/laser module and six interchangeable housings to fit a variety of sub-compact pistols. The housings are designed for use with more than 18 different models of Glock®, M&P Shield™, KAHR®, SIG SAUER® and Kimber® pistols.
