Eagleville, PA based Streamlight recently released a Universal Weapon Kit for the TLR-6 handgun light, which originally fit just the G42 and G43. The UWK contains an LED-driven hundred lumens with 3 available lighting modes — LED only, LED/laser and laser only. It will now fit something like 20 different weapons.

Here’s what they have to say about it.

Streamlight, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced a Universal Weapon Kit for its TLR-6 handgun light that includes a light/laser module and six interchangeable housings to fit a variety of sub-compact handguns. The housings are designed for use with more than 18 different models of Glock, M&P Shield, KAHR, SIG SAUER and Kimber handguns.

The TLR-6, the first light with an integrated red aiming laser for sub-compact handguns, is designed to maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications. Streamlight introduced the light — an industry first — in 2015 with a housing designed to fit the trigger guard of Glock 42 and Glock 43 handguns.


“We now have expanded the versatility of the TLR-6, with additional body housings that quickly and securely attach to the trigger guard of additional types of sub-compact handguns,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Now even more tactical and home defense users can attach this light/laser module to their sub-compact handgun of choice and benefit from its targeted bright light, as well as its powerful red aiming laser.”

Importantly, with the light and laser combination attached, users can more readily identify a potential threat before taking any action.

The TLR-6 uses the latest in C4 LED technology to deliver 100 lumens, 2,000 candela and a beam distance of 89 meters. Its parabolic reflector produces a balance of beam and peripheral illumination. The light features three lighting modes: LED Only, LED/Laser, and Laser Only, with operating run times of one hour for the LED Only or LED/Laser modes, and 11 hours for the Laser Only mode. All modes automatically shut off after ten minutes to conserve batteries. The light also uses an integrated 640-660 nm red laser which has an operating temperature range of -20°F to +120°F, permitting usage under a wide variety of weather conditions.

The TLR-6 is powered by two 3 Volt CR-1/3N lithium coin batteries. It features an integrated battery door that permits batteries to be replaced while the light remains mounted on the gun, and eliminates the need to re-sight the laser after a battery change.

The light is manufactured from durable, impact-resistant engineered polymer. Depending on the model, it ranges in length from 2.30 to 2.97 inches, and in weight from 1.12 to 1.27 ounces. It is IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation, and also is impact-resistant tested to one meter.

The TLR-6 Universal Kit is available at an MSRP of $210.00. It includes one LED/laser module and six interchangeable body housings designed to fit the M&P Shield 40 and the M&P Shield 9; the Glock 42 and the Glock 43; the Glock 26, the Glock 27 and the Glock 33; the Kimber MICRO; the SIG SAUER P238 and the SIG SAUER P938; and the KAHR ARMS MODELS CT9, CW9, CM9, CT40, CW40, CM40, TP9, P9, PM9, TP40, P40, and PM40.


Individual TLR-6 models also are available at an MSRP of $175.00 each.

The TLR-6 comes with Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
