Yes, it tucks up quite a bit, even the switch housing. With the light slid all the way back to the trigger guard it does protrude out the front .030-.040” more than the TLR-7A on the TD mount, but it’s minimal.

It was a no go in my holster for the TLR-7A setup. Wouldn’t click in place and had lots of play. My New DiVito holster for this setup is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.

I don't love it at much as i was hoping to, i think I'll hold off a bit longer to see what other options come down the pipe...

Is it just that you were hoping it was going to be a little smaller?

Basically, yes.
The P365XL is a great carry size, but this light makes it fatter and longer.

I'm always more concerned with the grip portion of a concealed carry gun than the slide/muzzle but I get it. It does swell the ole gland end a bit.

yeah I just went back and saw the pic of the light head on from the muzzle. I'm not worried about that, really, since I just want something for quick attaching at night time. I'll still carry most of the time (if not always) without the light.

Maybe, rechargeable is the future for making these lights smaller. Nitecore, as an example, is getting 700 lumens out of a smaller light and 500 lumens out of a much smaller light.


700 lumens


500 lumens

That's lights in general, but I've been carrying a P365XL with a light in a Divito holster for almost a year now, carried one in a non light bearing holster for a couple weeks before I got my first holster and the added bulk is marginal at most in an AIWB style holster. Because of where the claws usually mount it really doesn't ad much width or girth to the holster. The protrusion from the front is also minimal with the lights.

Now if you compare it to a minimalist holster like the raven vanguard then yes, it's much larger, but then so is any other full kydex holster. Those holsters have their own issues though with sharper edges like the front sight digging into precious cargo.

Is yours ridiculously tight on the slide? I ordered a total of 3 for myself and a couple friends and they’re all super tight. I was going to give him a call tomorrow.

When I first got it I noticed all the screws for the clips and claw were slightly loose. I tightened them down and the holster clamped too tight on the pistol. Backed the 2 screws out holding the claw in place dialed in the retention. I was planning on adding some thread locker on those 2 to keep them from backing out and falling off. I'd like to know what he says if you call.

Even with the screws completely loose it’s still super tight on the slide. I was thinking about putting a couple layers of painters tape on the slide, heating the holster around the slide area and slamming it home.

GunMagWarehouse shows the tlr-7 sub in stock for the 43x/48 mos and the p365 for $139.

My wife asked what I wanted for Father’s Day. I said the Trl 7 sub for the 365. She said no.


Back to shopping myself I guess
Link Posted: 6/5/2021 6:07:35 PM EDT
I bought a TLR7-Sub and the Surefire XSC to compare on my P365XL.

Really different concept lights. In my opinion XSC is a 15yd light... probably best when you want a light on a P365 and minimal size is the primary goal.

The out put of the TLR7-sub is significantly better and lights up my 35yd back yard well. But yes it makes the package as thick as my G19 at its widest, so holster design will make or break it.

Anyone found any good AIWB holsters for an XL MS (safety) model with both a red dot and the TLR-7 Sub? I emailed JM Custom a while back asking if they'll offer one but have heard nothing. I prefer something with a full-height sweat guard on the back, since I usually carry under a t-shirt and the slide tends to be pretty uncomfortable against skin.

ETA: Literally on the same page. I need to read better.

Going to throw this out there. The 1913 version of the TLR7a sub works on a Tactical Development rail. I did it this way because I was seeing where the sig version of the light had a little play on the frame. Also because I wasn't patient enough to find a sig version and I can make my own holster.

@ARK_Ginger is that a 365x or did you have a regular one milled?

surprised it's worth adding the width of the tactical rail just to use a skinny light

It's an X. The rail is actually narrower than the light. Tactical Development actually made a video showing where the TLR7a Sub is actually the same size as the TLR7a in critical dimensions (width and height). I don't have a regular TLR7a to measure it myself to confirm but it does appear that the only changes are the belly of the sub is thinned down and the clamp is different.

@ARK_Ginger thanks for the info. Makes sense, I figured it would be a bit wider than the stock frame with using a CR123. I only plan on snapping the light on at night rather than all the time, so I wasn't super worried about carrying with the thickness.

what's the barrel? Looks like a Griffin and comp.

I'm so tempted to get a threaded barrel for mine but I can't imagine actually carrying it with the can

@steviesterno16 It is a Griffin barrel and comp combo. Been pretty happy with the one on my 19 so I figured I'd give it a try

@steviesterno16 honestly haven't tried it. my form1 pistol can has been collecting dust. I think most cans would be too unwieldly, but something like a Thompson machine pistonless can would be perfect

Thread from the dead resurrection...

Well, after the last range session shooting the Siggy & my FN 509 I didn't notice what you'll see below. I made a stellar score on a brick of Speer Gold Dot HP 124g +P 9mm ammo. The FN 509 loves it (VERY accurate @ 7-15yrds) and will be the load for said nightstand queen.

I shot probably 30-40 rounds of said +P ammo through the Siggy as well. Not the load I'd use, it's snappy with a boatload more recoil. But I had to try it out.

I cleaned the guns afterwards,  and in the safe the Siggy goes. I haven't been out much as of late, so it's not been with my in use. I decided to get it out and fondle it today.

The way the TLR-7 Sub mounts on this gun may not be a good idea for long term use (at least not every range training session.)

Recoil pushed the front sharp edges on said light into the grip module polymer rail front enough to distort/deform it. See below pics. I've since took a small file and smoothed things out, but needless to say without a recoil lug system to help hold it on there leaves a lot to be desired...

Oh well, beta tester! Just thought I pass the observation along to my brethren. I don't really care, as it's a "duty gun" for a specific purpose. Not a beauty queen.. a potential lifesaver. Sucks none the less.

Anyone else notice this? Just curious..

I’m still waiting for the one I paid for February 14th, so I haven’t had that happen to me.

Can the sharp edge on the Sub be filed to be more blunt?

Maybe, but I’m not going to do that. I’ve decided to use it sparingly.. not during range sessions for sure.

Makes sense that it’s happening if there’s no cross bar to match on to. I would consider cutting one in if that would help.

Otherwise I’m not going to worry too much. Frames are $30 to replace of it gets too ripped up. I only plan on using mine to make sure it works and then slapping on whenever I’m traveling and in for the night.

Mine doesn't seem to have moved at all after a few hundred rounds. Very tight on there.

It may very well have been the +P ammo recoil that moved it. If memory serves me correct, I shot with it on prior using 115g & 147g without indecent. Oh well, no big deal as stated grip modules are cheap.

That and the fact I'll not be using the 124g +P ammo in this gun again. No need to.
