USA – -( Nightstick, a global manufacturer of innovative, professional lighting products is pleased to announce two new compact LED handgun weapon lights, models TCM-550XL and TCM-550XLS debuting at Shot Show 2019 in Las Vegas.

Both weapon lights feature intuitive dual rear-facing switches for momentary and constant-on operation, providing the shooter tactile, click actuation. Nightstick model TCM-550XL features an engineered TIR lens focusing a 550-lumen bright white beam, rated for 2.5 hours that illuminates objects up to 136 meters (446 feet) away. Nightstick TCM-550XLS features the same performance with the added benefit of strobe. Weighing in at only 2.5 ounces, constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum and rated as IP-X7 waterproof, these weapon lights are designed and engineered to provide robust illumination during critical low-light threat identification and target discrimination. Both weapon lights also feature a bezel-activated ‘safe mode’ battery lockout, eliminating accidental activation during storage or transportation.

“Based on feedback from major law enforcement agencies nationwide, we heard the need for a compact single CR123-powered handgun weapon light that provided intuitive rear-facing switches for easy reach and activation, says Russell Hoppe, Marketing Director for Nightstick.

“Leveraging the robust construction and high performance of our LED-equipped TWM-350 and TWM-850XL models, we created these two new weapon lights to provide law enforcement and handgun owners a smaller, lower profile and lighter weapon light solution for target and background identification when life depends on light™.”

Ready to install out of the box with a pre-installed modular rail insert for the most common duty handguns, these weapon lights are designed to fit most weapon light holsters from major manufacturers.

The TCM-550XL and TCM-550XLS are both backed by a limited lifetime warranty and in addition to a pre-installed modular rail insert, include three additional handgun-specific inserts, Allen wrench, and one CR123 lithium battery. To learn more, please visit

I’ve got three Streamlight TLR-2 units and they’re listed as 300 lumens. The first time I tried one out in our pitch dark living room (original beige color walls) the reflected light at maybe 20′ was momentarily dazzling. The little dark spots your eyes retain after a bright light being shown in them hung around for 2-3 minutes. I can only imagine what it would be like to have almost double the lumen rating bounce back.

I’ve actually consider lower lumen ratings rather than higher to be optimal.
