Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, has introduced a new model of its TLR-7 sub weapon-mounted tactical light, designed to fit the Springfield Armory Hellcat handgun.
Offering 500 lumens and featuring an ergonomic on/off position rear switch, the new version joins a growing family of TLR-7 sub models that fit many railed subcompact handguns.
“The latest addition to our line of TLR-7 sub weapon lights is designed to be mounted to the popular Springfield Armory Hellcat subcompact,” said Streamlight president and CEO Ray Sharrah. “Like other models in the line, it has a high-power LED that provides extreme brightness for maximizing visibility and targeting capability in personal defense and other tactical situations. And its rear switches on the left and right of the trigger guard allow for ambidextrous operation.”
The TLR-7 sub for the Springfield Armory Hellcat features an LED that delivers 5,000 candela and 500 lumens over a beam distance of 141 meters. Its custom TIR optic produces a concentrated beam that provides both extensive range as well as optimized peripheral coverage. It offers two lighting modes, LED only and LED strobe, each with a run time of 1.5 hours. The light is energized by a single 3-volt CR123A lithium battery.
The new TLR-7 sub model features a one-handed, snap on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. The light also includes a safe-off feature, locking it so it cannot be turned on accidentally.
Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish, the TLR-7 sub for the Springfield Armory Hellcat weighs 2.39 ounces and measures 2.51 inches in length.
With impact-resistant construction, the new model has an IPX7 rated design, making it waterproof to one meter for 30 minutes.
The TLR-7 sub for the Springfield Armory Hellcat has an MSRP of $225.75 and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
