TLR 1 vs TLR 3
I'd like to know if anyone has real world experience with these lights. I like the size and weight of the TLR 3, but I'm concerned with the durability since it's made of plastic and I'm shooting .40 S&W. I like the durability of the TLR 1 since it's made of aluminum, but I'm concerned about the length and weight.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I have the TLR-1... It is a great light. It illuminates very well. If I'm not mistaken, the TLR-1 is brighter than the TLR-3. As for the weight, it's not that bad. It'll help reduce the muzzle climb at discharge.

I have the TLR3 and it's bright enough for me from one end of the hall way to the front door at the house. I'm not sure what the lummins compare is between the two but it's very hard to look directly into teh TLR3 when shine it onto someone's eyes. As for durability, I've had no issues but this it's mounted to the nightstand/range gun.

I just bought a new TLR-1sHP. What a great light! 200 lumens, (you can almost
reheat left-overs with it.) a strobe feature and all for $150.00. There's a version
with a laser as well. I have a TLR-3 on the girlfriends P250. It's a nice compact
light @ 120 lumens I think. Shawn
JMC24, to answer your question, we have taken the TLR-3 to the range and fired 100's
of rounds with the light on the gun and switched on with no problems at all. I like
the compact size of the '3 for her bedside pistol as it allows us to attach it to the
backside of the head board with one of those magnet things so it is totally concealed
from grand-daughters and their friends. Shawn

P226 .40 with TLR-2
I have the TLR-2 on a P226 .40 S&W. No issue with added weight. While the TLR-2 does not have the same weight as the TLR-1 (TLR-2 = 4.72 oz. vs. TLR-1 = 4.18oz.), the TLR body isn't in the way and the added weight is negligible (actually, with a SS guide rod AND the TLR attached, the muzzle "jump" is, IMHO, minimized). I like it.

waynes, I haven't really found a problem with powder, burned or un-burned
accumulating on the lens. I usually wipe anything off with a micro-fiber cloth
I picked up at the Dollar Store. I spoke with Dottie at Streamlight and she says,
"use a pencil eraser". I haven't tried it yet, but she has recomended it to shooters
and they call back to thank her. Shawn

Didnt think abut an eraser.....
I've tried to wipe the residue off with no luck. I'll give the eraser a shot.
