Reviews

The Streamlight TLR-1 HL is different from the typical tactical flashlight we reviewed on the site. What separates the TLR-1 HL to the others is that it’s specifically designed to be mounted onto a firearm’s accessory rail - unlike it’s handheld counter parts like the 88040 ProTac HL.

The HL model securely fits many firearms and includes keys for the following weapons:

  • Glock-style
  • Picatinny
  • Beretta 90two
  • S&W 99
