Streamlight TLR-6 for SIG P365
August 28, 2019
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.
