The Streamlight TLR-8 Weapons Mounted Light is a small yet super bright 500 lumen tactical light designed to fit a broad array of weapons. A red laser gives the TRL-8 an edge over other lights for a wide variety of tactical situations. The TLR-8 enables shooters to identify a potential threat and accurately engage it, even from an awkward position.

 The small and mighty TLR-8 with a red laser securely fits a broad range of weapons. It is ideal shotgun caliber firearms like the Remington V3 Tac-13. It fits full-size and compact handguns and most holsters which accommodate lights. The low-profile design prevents snagging and a “safe off” feature prevents accidental activation, saving batteries.

A single CR123A lithium battery powers the TLR-8‘s LED to deliver 4,300 candela and 500 lumens with an integrated 640-660nm red laser at the bottom for aiming. Optimized electronics provide regulated intensity.

It can be operated in three modes: laser-only, LED-only or dual mode using both light and laser. The runtime is 1.5 hours with the light or 18 hours with laser only. TLR-8 lights feature a one-handed, snap-on and tighten interface that keeps your hand clear of the muzzle when installing or detaching.
