Anyone know if the Streamlight "super tac" is just hand held or is it designed for weapon mounting as well? Anyone have a chance to compare it to the TL-3?
The super tac is a very nice light. I got to handle one recently. It is both, hand held or weapons mounted. I'd say its meant/designed for being weapons mounted.
It will work in the same mounts that the TL-2 and TL-3's work in. I have the thunder ranch urban rifle light system (a TL-3), and I liked the super tac better. The beam looked sharper, not really brighter, but it looked sharper. I don't know what the actual output numbers are but I would assume its less because its a 2 battery design over a 3.
I am looking at replacing my TL-3 with one. The one I saw had a pretty cool mount set up right on a metal fore grip.
