Did you jump on the Glock 42 or 43 bandwagon but want a light?

If you waited all this time for one of the slim line Glock .380 and 9mm single-stacks to hit the market, but miss the tactical weapons light you had on your other platforms, Pennsylvania-based Streamlight has you covered.

Introduced this week is the TLR-6, what the company is calling an “ultra-compact” lightweight combination illuminator light and red aiming laser– the first of its kind meant for a sub-compact pistol as thin as the Glock 42/43.

Designed to fit on the trigger guard of either the 42 or 43, the light is crafted from durable, impact-resistant engineering polymer. As Glock spent years trimming the weight of these guns down, the TLR-6 does its best not to spoil that, tipping the scales at just 1.27 ounces including the weight of its two 3 Volt CR-1/3N lithium coin batteries (included). For reference, that’s about the weight of $1.25 worth of U.S. quarters.
