    My Streamlight arrived today.

    This is my TLR1. There are many like it, but this one is mine...

    Here's some info on the mount...

    The PolyTac seems like a great light so far and the Magpul mount is pretty versatile. Used a right side mount on the top rail to position the light at 11 o'clock. With the AFG2 this puts my thumb right in position to activate the light...

    These will replace two of my mounted lights. The Protac 1L will replace an old iTac TFL2 that's mounted on my pistol. Both lights are pretty small. The Protac 1L is a bit smaller and a little brighter at 180 lumens vs. the 120 lumens output from the TFL2. I like that the buttons on the Protac series lights are shrouded, making it more difficult for the button to be accidentally depressed while riding in a case or carry bag...

    It sits right up next to the front sight with the button in close reach...

    The Protac HL will replace the Streamlight Polytac that's mounted on my carbine. They are roughly the same size...

    [​IMG]


    ...but the output difference, 600 lumens HL vs. the 275 lumen Polytac makes the Protac HL better suited for outdoor use...

    I have had great luck with the PolyTac's North of 500rds through my 590 with the PolyTac in the Elzetta mount and over 2500 rds with a PolyTac on my AR. No issues.

    I like my TLR1. Have it on my K245.

    My usual rifle/carbine mounted lights are a ray-o-vac indestructible AA light though.

    Thank you Sir.

    I have several of these things now. I keep another ProTac HL strapped to the roll bar in the Jeep for quick access...

    [​IMG]

    We also have a PolyTac in almost every room of the house for emergency use...

    I love those polytac. Tough and lightweight. I too have a streamlight handheld available throughout the house. And two weapon mounted.

    Cant find any manufacturer details on weapon rating, but it's held up great on my 5.56 pistol...

    No problem.

    I don't baby it either. The pistol gets tossed around in the Jeep, dropped in the gravel, and banged around at the range. I haven't managed to break it yet, so it's ok by me...

    I have really enjoyed the StreamLight TLR-1 HL on my G17 Gen 4. And with the right holster, it's a nice setup. Now I want one for my shotgun.

    I wish there was a switch lock on these lights. I found my AR's TLR-1HL had been activated inside its soft case. Not real good for the nylon or the batteries :-(

    Used to be Surefire was the only way to go, and I have several of them. But I'm now tending to buy Streamlights. I just get more for a lower cost.
