    Default Steamlight tlr-1 hl vs tlr-7

    I'm new to purchasing lights for pistols. Streamlight gets good reviews.

    The to tlr-7 seems like the better choice to me since it could find its way into a few different guns (Ruger sr9 or Glock 17 currently) and is small enough that it probably would fit onto virtually anything else I'm likely to buy.

    Other than light output and size, is there any reason i shouldn't go with the tlr-7 over the tlr-1 hl? The cost looks about the same and the tlr-7 puts out 500 lumens which seems pretty bright for a single battery.

    This won't be holstered. It is just a light for a bedside gun. Cost isn't a super big concern, but obviously i don't want to buy more light than i need nor cheap out on something i need to work should i actually need it.

    I have the TLR-7 on my Sig Legion P229 and I really like it. Fits nice.

    But because it has just the one battery, it does get warm if you leave the light on long.

    Thanks! I ended up buying the crimson trace light overrun from Midway. The price was too good to pass up for a name brand. I'll score a tlr-7 next time they are on sale.

    I have two TLR1HLís and both have been great for years of carry. You can find them on ebay or on sale for around $90 new sometimes. Holsters made to accommodate a gun with the TLR1HL are readily available. I have no experience with other streamlight models.
