I think I got a decent deal on one for my XL, 109.75, but the estimated shipping date is March 20. Anybody already get one?
Link Posted: 2/24/2021 12:58:34 PM EDT
I haven't seen any yet but i'll pick one up when I do. I throw one on one of my XL's.

Good deal. Who did you order from?

I paid $120~ with no shipping day yet but an expected window in March.
Link Posted: 2/24/2021 2:14:36 PM EDT
On my list.  I didn't realize they had a lock out on the bezel.

I need to sell some things............

I'll need one for my XL...
Not a lot of pictures out there on the XL.
I was tempted to print or machine a direct adapter for an extra Olight PL2 mini.

What's really different from the tlr7 other than the lower body contour?

Obviously, as advertised by the name, but what is different? Did they move the crossbar back? Did they change the mount bars? Does it sit higher? Etc...

Just made this, look at streamlight's site for more info.
Looks like the body is the same on all subs and the clamps/bars are gun specific.

Battery Junction has pushed their expected date out to 3/27 and LA Police Gear has their expected date as 4/15.
Link Posted: 3/13/2021 9:01:53 AM EDT
Following. I don’t like to CC with a light but I like the idea of a quick attach to turn my daytime carry gun into a hotel/travel night gun.

So far nothing has been quick connect. Without a tool or adapter rail. I balked at MSRP but at $120 I’m in.

Take the light out of my bag, turn off lock out snd screw it on to serve bedside duty? Hell yeah

Will pick up one once they and holsters are readily available.  Right now my standard Tlr7a with Tactical Development Rail and McKinatec holster fit the bill.

I talked to them on the phone this morning and the young guy was obviously reading from his screen and said that they currently expect to receive them April 2nd. He couldn’t give me a definitive answer, in regards to how long it will take them to start shipping after they receive them.

ETA: I ordered mine on February 14th and they processed my order that day.

Sweet. They processed mine on the 26th, and hit my CC. Got the email about back order, and the pending charge dropped a few days later. It's all good, I'll wait it out. Would be fantastic to see it in early April!

Thanks man

When you leave your house, do you always know that you aren't going to be out after dark? I especially want light when I come home after dark.

honestly, mostly yes I'm back before dark. I'm almost never out in the dark since my kids are young and bed time is like 7pm and I live in the south. I also don't go into dark buildings during my work day or buildings that would be dark if the power went out. I'm also carrying a decent enough flashlight attached to my keys for that possibility. If I am sure I'm going out at night or anything I have other, light equipped handguns that I can and do take. HD at home is light equipped long gun(s).

I want the trl 7 for the sig mostly for travel and turning the easy EDC gun into a night stand gun. I hate carrying IWB with a light. I have tried it with small guns with small lights (trl 6 on a shield) and I hate the width so I would just not do it, especially considering the "power" of those lights

Ordered Feb. 14. CC hit same day.

Got email stating March 27 expected shipping.

Called March 29 was told April 2 was BJ’s expected date of receiving product and shipping should begin shortly after receiving product.

April 8 and no email or product.

Sounds like the Optics Planet business model.

They’re at the mercy of Streamlight just like everywhere else that’s selling them, and Streamlight is the ones that set that March ETA and has been pushing it back. They can’t wave their magic wand and make them appear. This is also the gun industry where almost nothing gets released on time, and there’s been a giant manufacturing backlog across almost all industries because of covid.

If you’d prefer I’m sure you can cancel your order and wait until they hit the shelves to try to order one. Don’t be surprised when you can’t find one though when the first runs sell out in minutes and it’s play that game or pay some gouger $200+ for one because they have it. The preorder doesn’t sound so bad now, huh?

Dude it’s funny every time you post your anti light rant. I just picture Jesus walking around with a light cast upon him or something.

I’m still curious what buildings you work in or go in that don’t get dark when the power goes out. You must never go to a grocery store, a department store, or ever find yourself in a stairwell, elevator, parking garage or anything else.

You must never go to a grocery store all single story with skylights, a department store nope, no malls either, or ever find yourself in a stairwell nope, elevator nope, parking garage nope or anything else.

@hiih8r it's not a rant. It's my life right now. I am in the suburbs and work in a school that's pretty open and uses a lot of natural light. I leave for it after sunrise. I leave work at 3pm. I don't shop or go anywhere that's dark without prior planning, really. If power goes out I have a flashlight in my pocket. If power goes out and that's the exact moment I need my gun? I'm probably fucked.

If I am traveling to places that have the above structures or will be out after dark, shit yeah I want a gun with a light on it. I don't want that thing poking me in my badly injured hip the whole day leading up to it though, so lemme just snap a light and go OWB when it gets dark. Or likely my kids are there so it's already sweat pants and blippi time.

I am pro light. I have spent more money on lights than a reasonable person should. I have them on everything I anticipate using for night time defense. I don't see the need outweighing the annoyance on my typical day to day

The overwhelming majority of retailers do not hit your CC, until they process your order for shipping.

“Dude it’s funny every time you post your...rant”, kissing another retailer’s or manufacturer’s ass, it makes me wonder if you have stickers all over your pickup.

this picture has convinced me to look harder at the surefire XSC... I dont mind my TLR1 sticking out 1/2 " on my compact P320, but I don't carry that AIWB, its either OWB in a range holster or IWB 4 o'clock... that light sticking that far our on even the XL? I'm going to pass.

I wish someone would make an Olight Mini direct adapter to eliminate the sliding QD mount...
The rail adapters are too tall IMO.
The maker of this adapter (TA) won't do it due to Olight mount patents.

For what’s available right now, and all things considered, the Sub is the best choice for me. I’d rather a light extend beyond the muzzle a little(looks more like a 1/4” to me), than hang below the trigger guard.

It’s $100 and will sell quickly should something I like better become available, like a better way to mount the Mini 2. If you find a better adapter, make sure to let us know.
Link Posted: 4/14/2021 11:55:16 AM EDT
That's the one thing I hate about the Olight Mini 2. I've got one on the nightstand queen, FNS-9C. For that application it's fine. But that cheap ass QD lever system has got to go. If they'd switch over to the Streamlight "use a nickel" to tighten setup I'd be all in. And make it fit the P365 rail native. That would be fantastic.

For now, I'm all in on the TLR-7 Sub. I'm going to carry my 365 XL OWB, so I'm good with the way it is. Just have to wait for the Kydex Kings to make some holsters....

I use to like having my light flush with the muzzle but after taking a shiv works course awhile back, I want my light to extend past the muzzle. One of my take aways from that class was how easy it was to cause a malfunction after the first shot when you are basically on the ground fighting with someone. It really stuck with me. Having a stand off like a weapon light helps when you are basically making contact shots.

I am going to go with the Surefire XSC but the Sub from Streamlight looks nice too. I don’t use the XL slide, just the XL module. The Surefire XSC gives me a little stand off without it being too long. The TLR-7 Sub looks like it would be significantly longer on the standard 365 slide.

One gun though that the Sub might help with is the P320 X-Compact with the 3.6” barrel. Lights for it are hard to find. I have an Olight PL2 Valkyrie on mine now but I’m not happy with the Olight. It just happens to be the only light that fits the short rail on the X-Compact, though I rarely even mount it anymore dude to it almost catching fire on me awhile back. I wonder if the 1913 TLR7 Sub vs will work on the X-Compact

My side started getting hot AF one day, like burning hot, pulled my pistol out and the light was smoking and the battery was flashing red. From what I read online the battery can discharge and cook itself. Something with static electricity and the magnet charging system and both positive and negative terminals exposed that can cause the light to easily short out. I’m not really sure, I’m not much on being a technical electric guy but it happened and spooked the hell out of me. The light was crazy hot, like burn you hot and smoking. I haven’t really use it since.

Sage Dynamic posted a photo of the rifle style weapon light doing the same thing awhile back.

Edit: One positive thing about the experience is that the attachment system that Olight uses for the PL2-Mini, makes the light quick and easy to remove in case of fire.
