    Steamlight TLR 2, any one using it on an AR?

    Thinking about adding a light/laser to my new AR. Don't want to spend a fortune as I won't be raiding crack house or cleaning out insurgents.
    Anyone using or used the Streamlight TLR2 on their AR. Opinions ? or recommendations would be appreciated. THANKS.

    I have one on mine. Runs fine. I picked up a pressure switch for it...attached the switch to my vert. foregrip to activate the light.
    Mounted it on the right side up at the end of my rail.

    It survived a 1000 round count plus some additional plinking with no issues.

    Somebody's having a sale! I don't know about the TLR-2, but I have a Streamlight M-3 mounted on my AR with remote pressure pad, and it's sweet! A weapon mounted light is a good option IMO.

    The TLR-2 is a very good light no matter where you mount it!

    Not sure that a light on my AR would be practical for me...needing a light for a long distance shot would require a 'flood light' with about 4.5 million lumens.

    I'll stick with an individual hand held light for use with my pistols.

    Stay armed...separate gun and light for me...stay safe!

    A light that bright would cook your victim before you could shoot!
