Perfect... Thank you!! I use streamlight at my fire department and they are always reliable.

Do u know if this will fit my XD.45 also?
Yes it will. As long as it has a 1913 Picatinny rail.

Not to try and rip you off, but I figured I would pop in and tell you that I sell these, however I can't offer that incredible price,:( I would have to do $120 plus shipping. But I figured I would just put that out there in case you would rather support a vendor. ;)

Its a great light by the way.:D

another +1 for the TLR-1. I carry mine daily and love it, been using them for a few years now, battery life is great, light is bright, they are very durable, and price is right for where you want to be.

TLR-1 doesn't strobe. The TLR-1s has strobe. Use the TLR-1s for work. Great light and no BS customer service.

Not to be an idiot when I worked on the ambulance the strobes were blinding if looked directly at them but really didn't help you see. So the question is what is the benefit/need for a strobe on the rail?

During building searches it has been found to disorient person(s) that are hiding from officers. It doesn't effect the users ability to see clearly but an opponent will have issues of proximity to the user.

It's blinding, to whomever your pointing the pistol at. Most lights that have the strobe option flash at a higher output, about 20% above standard beam power. It also draws less power from the battery. Which probably isn't much of an issue, since under most circumstances you wouldn't have it on that long. Mostly the strobe is just a design function based around the premise that the light is also a weapon in it's own right.

Can't beat a TLR-1 for the price. I've not used the s model because I personally don't have any use for the strobe function, but the TLR lights are rock solid, long battery life and super bright

One of the ones I'm considering is the crimsion trace cmr-202. I have heard really good things about them. They go for about $120

Botach has the tlr-1s for $109 shipped. 300 lumens for that price is nuts.
