Streamlight TLR-6 Light/Laser: Two Options for 1911 Shooters

Streamlight’s TLR-6 light/laser features a bright LED light and an integrated red aiming laser. Two versions are offered for 1911 shooters—one for non-rail Model 1911s and one for Model 1911s with frame rails. I have the non-rail TLR-6.

The non-rail unit attaches securely to the trigger guard of a lot of Model 1911s, including Colt 1911-A1, 1911 Commander, Competition 1911 Government, 1991 A1 Government, Gold Cup National Match, Delta Elite 10mm, and Lightweight Commander; Kimber Stainless Ultra Raptor II, Custom CDP, Pro CDP II, Ultra Crimson Carry, Custom TLE II, Pro Carry II, and Pro Crimson Carry II; Para Elite 1911, Expert Commander, and 1911 LTC; Remington 1911 R1; Ruger SR1911 and SR1911 Commander-Style; SIG SAUER 1911 TacPac, 1911 C3, 1911 Nitron, and 1911 Ultra Compact; Springfield Armory Range Officer and Range Officer Compact; S&W SW1911 Pro Series, SW1911 CT, SW1911 SC, and SW1911; and Wilson Combat CQB Elite, Ultralight Carry, Professional, Commander, X-TAC Elite Compact, and Sentinel.

Powered by two CR-1/3N lithium batteries, the TLR-6 delivers 100 lumens, 2,000 candela, and a beam distance of 292 feet (89 meters). Its parabolic reflector produces a balance of beam and peripheral illumination. The light has three lighting modes: LED Only, LED/Laser, and Laser Only, with operating runtimes of one hour for the LED Only and LED/Laser modes and 11 hours for the Laser Only mode. All modes automatically shut off after 10 minutes to conserve batteries. The integrated 640-660nm red laser has an operating temperature range of -20 degrees Fahrenheit to +120 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing it to function in a wide variety of weather conditions.

The TLR-6 for non-rail 1911s comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. It is lightweight, compact, and ergonomic. It weighs 1.27 ounces with batteries. It measures 2.34 inches long, 0.85 inch thick, and 1.58 inches tall. And it has right-hand and left-hand switches for ambidextrous operation. The windage and elevation adjustment screws are mounted in bushings for long life and dependable zero retention. The glass lens has a shock-resistant gasket seal, and the C4 LED technology is impervious to shock with a 50,000-hour lifetime.
