From Eagleview, PA comes word of the pending availability of a new model of Streamlight weapon light. Several models, actually. The notification we received is announcing the availability of not just a Springfield Hellcat weapon light, but also a “micro-light” for the Glock 43x and G46, as well as a non-laser version of the TLR-6 for the SIG P365 and P365XL. The new WMLs will be available in March.
The new models of weapon light are described as capable of 100 lumens and over 2,000 candelas over a beam distance of 89m. Each features a parabolic reflector that produces a balance of beam and peripheral illumination. The WMLs are powered by two (2) 3 Volt CR-1/3N lithium coin batteries and utilize an integrated battery door that allows battery replacement while the device remains mounted to the gun.
This may seem to be an insignificant feature when it comes to a standard white-light WML, but it is a significant benefit when you’re talking about a device that requires proper zero (like a laser) after a battery change.
