TLR 7 HLX: Look At The New High Lumen Gun Light

The Streamlight TLR 7 HLX is a new iteration of the Streamlight HLX weapon mounted light (WML) series. It's specced at 1,000 lumens, with what is described as a "...longer-reaching beam..." that provides up to 22,000 candela, compaired with the standard TLR-7 at 500 Lumen.

This is more than double the beam distance of its predecessors. 

Streamlight HLX series now has the TLR7 HLX gun light available.

Streamlight TLR 7 HLX 

The HLX TLR-7 model is a lightweight weapon light option designed to fit full-size and compact handguns with rails. It also offers customizable rear paddle switches featuring a low or high position to match shooter/user shooting style or preference. 

 The manufacturer advises that the new light is designed to "...maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications..."

As a "Multi-Fuel" gun light, TLR 7 HLX users have the choice of either the SL-B9 USB-C rechargeable battery pack or a 3-Volt CR123A lithium battery depending on user preference or logistic constraints. 

It fits securely to a wide range of firearms, with a one-handed, snap-on-and-tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching the WML.

The light includes a "safe-off" feature to prevent accidental or negligent light activation. It has reportedly been life-fire tested at length to validate its impact-resistant construction. As a result it boasts an IPX7-rated design, making it waterproof to 1 meter for up to half an hour (30 min).
