Small and Mighty TLR-8: 500 Lumen Light with Red Aiming Laser

2 min read

The Streamlight TLR-8 Weapons Mounted Light is a small yet super bright 500 lumen tactical light designed to fit a broad array of weapons. A red laser gives the TLR-8 an edge over other lights for a wide variety of tactical situations. The TLR-8 enables shooters to identify a potential threat and accurately engage it, even from an awkward position.

The small and mighty TLR-8 with a red laser securely fits a broad range of weapons. It is ideal shotgun caliber firearms like the Remington V3 Tac-13. It fits full-size and compact handguns and most holsters which accommodate lights. The low-profile design prevents snagging and a “safe off” feature prevents accidental activation, saving batteries.

A single CR123A lithium battery powers the TLR-8’s LED to deliver 4,300 candela and 500 lumens with  an integrated 640-660nm red laser at the bottom for aiming. Optimized electronics provide regulated intensity.

It can operated in three modes: laser-only, LED-only or dual mode using both light and laser. The run time is 1.5 hours with the light or 18 hours with laser only. TLR-8 lights feature a one-handed, snap on and tighten interface that keeps your hand clear of the muzzle when installing or detaching.

Tougher than actual nails, the body and face cap are made of 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish. The switch housing is impact and chemical resistant engineered polymer with elastomeric over mold.
No need to worry about the weather, IPX7-rated, the TLR-8 is waterproof submerged up to one meter for 30 minutes and they can operate in a temperature range of negative 40 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Backed with Streetlight’s limited lifetime warranty, the TLR-8 has an MSRP of $350
