Streamlight TLR-7A Pistol Light


What’s Included | Specs | Pictures | FAQ | Restrictions | Related Info

The TLR-7A is currently our go-to compact pistol light. The original TLR-7 suffered from an inferior switch design which made it difficult for most shooters to activate the light. Streamlight corrected that issue with the new HIGH and LOW switch options, which come standard with the TLR-7A, making it one of the easiest pistol lights to activate while shooting one-handed and without breaking a two-handed grip. Plus, it’s tough and clocks in at 500 lumens with moderate candela and a 1.5-hour battery run time.

We believe the ability to activate a white light on a pistol or rifle is the most important upgrade one can have, and it’s critical to be able to activate the light without significantly altering your grip while shooting. The high switch option on the TLR-7A allows for that.

Does the Contour Remote for the TLR-7 work in your holsters?
What environment is this light most effective in?
Indoors and close range (Less than 40 yards).
At mid range (40 yards approximately) you can still see a target, but it will be difficult to identify features.
What is the difference between Lumens and Candela? Which is more important?
The number of lumens a light has can be very deceiving. Though high lumen counts are often thrown out by manufacturers to sell lights, higher lumens doesn’t always translate to a brighter light. Simply put…

Lumens are the total amount of light emitted.
Candela is how far and tightly focused the light is thrown onto a target.

Lumens is important, but Candela is king when it comes to identifying targets. Lumens can light up a room (flood light), but candela can light up the details on a particular object (throw light).
