Streamlight TLR 1 HL - Best Overall
Why Get The TLR 1 - The Streamlight TLR 1 is used on most law enforcement officer's duty pistol setup. It's by far the most popular duty grade pistol weapon light for HK USP besides the Surefire X300 or XH30.
Upgraded With More Lumen - Now up to 1000 lumens with the HL version with much brighter illumination & throw
Wide Illumination - Search & ID subjects in the dark with a wide beam coverage area without having to point the muzzle directly towards the target of interest
Easy Toggle Switch - Much easier to press the switch for activation than Surefire X300U. Easy two handed and one handed operation.
Serviceable Lens Bezel - Saves money replacing just the bezel instead of the whole light after force on force simunition training damage.
Strobe Mode Added - Dobule tap to activate the strobe to blind threats and other tactical moves in low light
- 1000 Lumens
- 15000 Candela
- 2 CR123A Batteries
- 4.18 oz
- 3.39 in
Also check out LAPG XWL - TLR 1 Clone with much more focused throw, but for how affordable the Streamlight TLR 1 HL is now days, we recommend getting the TLR 1 instead of fussing over saving just $40 more.
Surefire X300U - 2nd Best Duty Light
Why pick this one - The Surefire X300U with the thumb screw mount is highly recommended to mount on the USP rail adapter. Surefire makes some of the world's best weapon light accessories, and the X300U goes very well with the old school USP EXPERT 9mm long slide.
Balanced Throw & Spill - TIR lens provides a hot spot and wide illumination like the TLR 1 to illuminate far away and also ID things in low light.
Slide Always In Battery - Extra light bezel length over the muzzle prevents the slide from getting out of battery during point blank muzzle-to-surface contact engagement, or use as a striking device
Mounts Directly To The Rail - Adjustable tension
Built To Last - Mil-spec grade aluminum housing protects electronic components inside from sharp recoil impulse, drop, and day to day field handling.
Highly recommended - SUREFIRE DG SWITCHES for shooters that can't easily reach the toggle switch
- 1000 Lumens
- 11300 Candela
- 2 CR123A Batteries
- 4.8 oz
- 3.7 in
Streamlight TLR 7A Flex - Best Compact
Streamlight TLR 7A Flex fits flush with the muzzle of the HK USP non threaded barrel. It's a great compact pistol lights that works great and looks slick on the USP full size.
See All Around You - Illuminate up to 40 yards in low light for night shoot, search & personal defense
Adds Only 2.4 Oz - Runs on only 1 CR123A battery (50,000 hours) that can produce up to 500 lumens & 5000 candela
Slim Profile - Doesn't stick out past below the USP trigger guard frame unlike other large size lights
Responsive Ambi Control - Works For Lefties & Righties (Better toggle switch reach wanted)
- 500 Lumens
- 5000 Candela
- 1 CR123A Batteries
- 2.40 oz
- 2.58 in
