SIG’s P365 is fast becoming one of the most popular subcompacts on the market, and companies like Streamlight are taking notice. To wit, the firm’s new TLR-6 light/laser specifically designed for the P365.
It’s just the right size for the pistol at 2.2 inches long by about 0.75 inch wide. Weight is a just a touch over an ounce. And there’s a ton of power in that small package: 100 lumens/2,000 candela of white light, which is cast in a nicely even, wide beam; and a red laser.
Installation is a snap. Simply remove three screws with the furnished Allen wrench and clamshell the TLR-6 around the trigger guard and the relief cuts on the frame. The two supplied CR-1/3N batteries can be installed without removing the light/laser.
Operation is simple, too. Momentary-on is accomplished by holding down either activation button for about a second. Cycle through the three modes—light/laser, light only and laser only—by holding both buttons to program.
From a firing grip I can just so activate the right-side button with my trigger finger. My wife, with her longer fingers, reached it easily. It’ll take a little more practice to figure out if it might work better for me using my support-hand thumb. You may also find there’s a tiny bit of a learning curve to getting momentary-on just right. Within about half an hour of practice clearing my basement in the dark, I got the hang of it.
Street price of the TLR-6 for the SIG P365 is around $120. Visit streamlight.com for more info.
