Looking for a good light to mount on my Glock 23. What's good, what's crap? I like Streamlight hand held lights, how are their weapon lights?

Streamlight TLR-1 HL owner here. It has been great so far.

The new 800 lumen Streamlights are badass.

I have the regular TLR-1 and it works great for me on both handgun and AR.

TLR-1 any flavor is a good light.

The Inforce is also good. You want to see if anybody you know has them so you can try them. The older 40s and some newer ones are known to not like the lights mounted.

I also have the 800 lumen TLR-1 HL and highly recommend it.

Thanks for all the input. Looks like I'm going to start with the TRL-1, my buddy had the Inforce light, and I've tried that one. I've got an old ass Insight M3 light which is basically a TRL-1 from looks and activation style. It seemed pretty good when I got it 10 or so years ago, but it's beam is utter shit, and not bright at all.

If you haven't bought already, primary arms has the TLR-1s (300 Lumens) for $90. Best price I've seen.

I have a tlr1 that works well and just recently bought a surefire xc1. The xc1 is small enough to comfortably carry iwb on my carry gun (p229). I really like the flood light pattern as well. If you plan on carrying with the light attached, you may want to consider the xc1.

Streamlight TLR-1s.

Great light, not overpowering to blind yourself while indoors but blinding in you were to shine it in someones face. Also has a nice flood to light up the surrounding area. Strobe feature is nice to have. I have one on my G17 night stand gun. Paid about $110 from midwayusa.com.

I see them pop up on the EE quite a bit for around $75 if you dont want to spend a lot for a new one.

I've got a couple of TLR-1 lights. Very happy with them and the price is great. You can find the HL models for $100 now too which is awesome.

I like Streamlight and Surefire. All of my "go to war" guns have surefires though.

TLR-1 is my new favorite.

I have several small Streamlight handheld lights that I carry daily and depend on. But for a carry gun I think the TLR series is just too bulky. I have an Inforce APL and Surefire XC1 that I run on my carry guns because they make a much smaller package when carried inside the waistband.


I wouldn't hesitate to run a TLR on a nightstand gun though, no worries about concealment there.

I want to get an XC1 for my P2000. That is a very cool but pricey light.

Sign up for their email, they go on sale all the time, think I got mine for 79.99, but $90 is more frequent.
Great light for household distances, plenty bright, broad beam, probably 8/9' in diameter at 10' quite a bit of spill.
Course it is large and a noticeable weight, I work nights and CC mine on a XD45, I know it's there, but it isn't awful.

It was a daily special. Like posted above, sign up or check frequently because they have sales every week.

Streamlight &/or Surefire...
Link Posted: 5/4/2016 7:52:42 PM EDT
I had a TLR 1S on my Gen 4 G23. Its was on it for every range session and I never had an issue. Its been moved over to my M&P 9 as thats become my HD gun.
