Our Light Picks For Walther PDP

Surefire XH30 - Best Overall

Why we pick XH30 - The XH30 just goes perfectly with any full size gun including the Walther PDP. This is pretty much an improved version of the X300U with added strobe mode for signaling and disorienting capabilities in tactical situations.

Multi-Lumen Modes - Choosing between 1,000 or 300 lumens.  1000 Lumens for target ID and threat control. 300 lumen for close proximity search without blinding the eye.

Works With DG Switch - The switch tail cap is the same as X300U, and it also works with the Surefire DG switch

  • Constant on/off
  • Momentary on

Strobe Mode Added - Disorient opponents in tactical situations. Strobe on 300 or 1000 lumens based on mode setting

Streamlight TLR 1 HL - Best Duty Grade

Why People Love This One? - The TLR 1 HL is widely used for law enforcement duty handguns, and it's also much more affordable option than the Surefire X300U or XH30.

Single Hand Operation - Toggle the switches using only one hand without hard press to activate the light or strobe

Instant Strobe Mode - Activate strobe with much faster speed without reconfiguring the light's mode settings on the go

Field Serviceable - Replace damaged light bezel without having to replace the whole light. Take it to force on force training with confidence

Streamlight TLR 7A - Best Compact Light

Streamlight TLR 7A Flex is the best compact size handgun light in the market for conceal carry

Muzzle Flush Fit - Light doesn't stick out past the muzzle for fast holstering & stays low profile. Works on Compact & Full size Walther PDP

CQB Grade Beam - Produces up to 500 lumens & 5000 candela. Use flood beam to see as far as 10 - 40 yards to ID targets from your 9 to 3 o'clock positions

Upgraded Switches - Much better light activation ergonomics than the original TLR 7. Works for lefties and righties

Recessed Mount Screw - Nothing sticks out from the sides to prevent snag hazard

We highly recommend this light for its size, performance and price, and it's by far the best compact light for Walther PDP for home protection and conceal carry
