Marine South – Streamlight TLR-6

Streamlight’s TLR-6 is designed specifically for use with subcompact semiauto pistols such as the Glock 26, 27, 33, 42, 43; M&P Shield 9 amd 40; Kimber Micro; SIG P238 and P938 as well as the wide variety of Kahr subcompact pistols. The way they do this is through a variety of housings that use the same light/laser module.  As you can see, the idea was to conform to these smaller frames as much as possible by connecting to the trigger guard.

The activation button of the 100 lumen pistol light is on either side of the TLR-6 and could be a reach for those with short fingers. To change modes from light to laser, you must push both buttons at once. However, the two 3v CR-1/3N lithium batteries provide one hour of dual 100 lumen light and laser mode. They can be swapped out without removing the light from the pistol. It is IPX4 water resistant to 1 meter.

    Ah, looks like SL’s answer to the XC1. And that laser looks pretty sweet.

      It’s smaller than the XC1 and not rail mounted. More meant for single stack CCW pistols without rails whereas the XC1 seems more focused on double stack CCW guns with rails such as the Glock 19.

      From our perspective (as a holster company that mostly focuses on CCW) we really like both. They are really easy to build holsters for and make the holster only marginally larger, unlike TLR1/X300 type lights which can be a headache depending on the firearm and make the holster significantly bigger and bulkier for CCW.

    Streamlight continues to make many cutting edge products

    There is a Crimson Trace option coming out soon, IIRC it’s the Laser Guard Pro. The CT version has a 150 Lumen light and the laser is closer to the bore. Good to see more good light and laser options for the small CCW pistols.

    I have no skin in the game for either version, just want people to know there are options.

    Installed a TLR-6 on my G26 last week. After a function test on the range, I am fairly satisfied with the light. Conceals well with a Kydex IWB for me, with no increase in observability.

    Downsides are the too-long activation switch distance for the support hand and 100 lumen lights were the sh1t in 1998, but seem a little weak today. That said, the form factor is limited, the install easy and more confidence/options exist for low light incidents. Well played Streamlight, well played.

    Might be interested if there were any way to carry it. The design of the light doesn’t lend itself to working in a form fitted holster so you’re pretty much stuck with some sloppy nylon gun bucket.

    I’ll just carry a handheld
