Thread: Looking for a Streamlight alternative

  1. #1

    Default Looking for a Streamlight alternative

    Forgive me for eschewing the typical fill-in form that many use here, but this is a pretty specific and self-explanatory request. I am looking for a pistol mounted light similar in form to the Streamlight TLR series. Must be stout enough for use on in a home defense capacity.

    Requirements
    - durable
    - IPX7 or better
    - Bright enough (200+ lumens min)
    - Decent runtime (1hr+)
    - mounts on a Glock gen 4 rail
    - takes primary battery (AAA, AA, CR123, etc)
    - Under $100

    Not required but would be nice
    - Has compatible holsters available, especially OWB paddle type.

    Anybody know of a good option out there? Obviously I am not looking for the latest 1000lm Surefire just something that can reliably investigate a concerning bump in the night in my suburban house.

    Olight makes a few products that may interest you. Olight BALDR series. They fit most of your requirements. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on their quality or durability. I don't own any myself. Best of luck.

    I suggest you stick to Streamlight/SureFire, for the use you request.

    When I'm going to be buying something for "critical" use, I have found/learned that "cheaping out" is not acceptable, at least for me.

    I wish you luck in your search.
    In a SHTF scenario, the best of plans will go to sh*t, so Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) is the best plan

    Olight PL2 Valkyrie comes to mind. Fits pretty much every duty holster made for Streamlight TLR1 or Surefire X300.
