Little review for the Streamlight TLR-7
Very well built, sturdy, gives a nice wide beam for clearing say, your house.
Runs on the widely available cr123 vs some of the newer lights that run the CR2. Does have a lockout feature by turning the bezel.
Looks very good on the gun.
It's back in the box and I'll find something to put it on or sell it. I went back to the APL-C.
After trying this out some more and switching back and forth between multiple lights we can say: we like it a little better. It is noticeably brighter than the APL lights (APL-C on left, TLR-7 on the right) The yellowish tint plays a trick on the perception but it does push a brighter beam, wider hotspot and more spill.
Still, the paddles aren't great. If we had a holder to fit it, i might carry it, but overall, until they make a better paddle system (maybe a TLR-7 v2.0?) Then we would switch over. It's still a very good light.
*Note for those asking, it will not fit into an APL-C holster the "belly of the light is lower.
Hope this review helps.
Keep Calm and Carry Gear.
