Streamlight has just released the TLR-8 Sub weapon light series, featuring two models of compact weapon lights with integrated lasers.
Constantly seeking to expand its catalog, Streamlight has just released the TLR-8 Sub and TLR-8 G Sub. These two new sub-compact weapon lights feature integrated laser aiming modules and are compatible with several popular concealed carry pistol models that have limited room for accessories.
Before the TLR-8 Sub and TLR-8 G Sub, the existing models of TLR-8 light/laser modules were only compatible with handguns that featured a full-size accessory rail. The only previously available Streamlight combo device compatible with short accessory rails was the TLR-6, but its small size resulted in a light with a weak beam and suboptimal battery life. With the introduction of the TLR-8 Sub and TLR-8 G Sub, subcompact pistol users now have an improved light/laser combo device from Streamlight to consider. The two new devices differ only in the color of their laser and their price, with the “G” model having a green laser instead of red.
Both models are available with one of four mounts—Sig P365, Springfield Hellcat, Glock or 1913. While the first two are self-explanatory, the Glock mount is designed to fit Glock 43X and 48 pistols (MOS or Rail) and the 1913 mount is designed for handguns with a short 1913 rail such as the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0. A full handgun fit compatibility guide is available on Streamlight’s website.
Other notable features of the new lights include their 5,000-candela/500-lumen output with a 141-meter beam distance. The devices are powered by a single CR123A battery and have three settings to choose from, either light-only, laser-only or a combination of both. In combo or light-only mode, both TLR-8 Sub models have a run time of 1.5 hours. In laser-only mode, the red model has a run time of 60 hours while the green model has a run time of 11 hours. For activatating the device, users can also choose between two styles of interchangeable rear paddle switches.
The Streamlight TLR-8 Sub has an MSRP of $389.55 and the TLR-8 G Sub has an MSRP of $477. Both are available now.
