Streamlight answers the call of consumers looking for a non-laser version of the company’s popular TLR-6, introducing new light only models for select Glock and Smith & Wesson Shield handguns.
The non-laser TLR-6 keeps to the series ultra lightweight and compact design, but ditches the laser in favor of a LED powered light.
