Streamlight’s new TLR-7A includes two ambidexterous ergonomic switches (one low and one high position) to match your hand placement. It features a quick attach rail clamp that utilizes a one-haded, snap on and tighten interface that keeps the hands away from the muzzle. The low-profile design prevents snagging and a “safe off” feature prevents accidental activation, saving batteries.

Constructed of 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish, the TLR-7 A weighs 2.4 ounces. Meanwhile, it measures 2.58 inches in length. The unit boasts extensive live-fire testing and impact-resistant construction. With it IPX7 rated design, the light remains waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
