Streamlight Introduces TLR-VIR II Tactical Illuminator

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

Low-Profile Light Features Three Functions, Adjustable Eye-Safe IR Aiming Laser

EAGLEVILLE, PA, January 22, 2019 – Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the TLR-VIR® II, a lightweight, compact rail-mounted tactical light with a high intensity white LED, an integrated infrared (IR) LED illuminator, and Class 1 “Eye Safe” IR aiming laser with windage and elevation adjustment controls. The new light securely fits all long guns with MIL-STD-1913 rails and M17/M18 pistols.

The TLR-VIR II enables users to easily toggle easily between bright light and the IR illuminator/laser. This feature allows military and law enforcement personnel to remain in a proper firing position when making the transition from IR mode to white light, and vice versa. The light features a three-position mode rear selector switch, including IR illumination/IR laser, Safe Off (to prevent accidental turn-on), and visible illumination, that enables users to keep hands away from the muzzle during mode selection.

“The TLR-VIR II gives soldiers and first responders the ultimate in tactical lighting flexibility,” said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. “With its high intensity white light and a long-running IR illuminator and Eye Safe IR laser for optimizing night vision, it’s an essential tool for those deploying with weapon lights.”

The new light, which is powered by a single CR123A lithium battery, uses the latest in LED technology for ultra-bright visible light, providing 5,000 candela, 300 lumens and a 1.5 hour run time. For IR lighting, the TLR-VIR II uses an 850-nanometer LED emitter with 600mW/sr radiant intensity, providing optimum illumination when using night vision equipment; it delivers a run time of 12 hours. Its IR aiming laser has fully adjustable windage and elevation settings.

The TLR-VIR II has an ambidextrous momentary/steady on-off switch. Like other TLR® models, the light has a rail clamp that can be easily attached and tightened with one hand, without the use of tools. The IR illumination/laser mode selection also features a tactile indicator on the light housing for switching modes with ease.

The TLR-VIR II is constructed from machined aircraft aluminum, with a coyote anodized finish body and a high-impact, chemically resistant polymer black switch housing.
The compact light weighs only 3.82 ounces and measures 3.30 inches long and 1.40 inches high. It uses a high temperature, shock-mounted, impact-resistant Borofloat glass lens. It is available in Coyote or Black.

Featuring extensively live-fire tested construction, the TLR-VIR II has an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It has an MSRP of $600.00.

–Blue LED (470 nm peak wavelength ) alerts friendly forces; distinguishes strobe from ground fire: 1.8 lumens; 130 candela; 23m beam distance
–IR LED (880 nm peak wavelength) for covert operations: 25mW/sr (min) radiant intensity
–Green LED (527 nm peak wavelength ) to help preserve night vision: 4.5 lumens; 68 candela; 16m beam distance

Way Of The Gun Brings Manufacturing In-House

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Frank Proctor tells us Way Of The Gun is bringing manufacturing in-house. They’ve got a CNC machine up and running and they are using it to produce some of their parts as well as custom slides for the GLOCK.

The first product they are producing is the new version of a light mount which Frank designed for the Streamlight Protac 1L. He raves about this little light for its size, cost, durability and function and his PLM V3 mount is a great combination. The Picatinny compatible mount also fits several other small light like the Surefire E series and Phenix. Keep your eyes peeled for a 1” light version of the mount, coming soon.

Frank also really likes the new 800 lumen TLR1 from Streamlight. Here, you can see it along with a sneak peek of the GLOCK slide.


Marine South – Streamlight TLR-6

Monday, April 11th, 2016

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.

When the Siege lantern first came out from Streamlight, I had a chance to try it out and it quickly became a must-have for camping trips. This year, they’ve introduced a new model called the Super Siege by upping the lumens to 1,100 and incorporating an 8800 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery with USB ports for power in as well as out. You can charge the lamp or use it to power other devices such as cell phones.


There are five LEDs (one White and four Red). There are six output modes including Red SOS as well as a battery indicator. The Super Siege also incorporates a “Glare Guard” which can be used to shield up to half of the globe to direct light. There is also a watertight storage compartment in the base.

Available in Coyote or Yellow.
