New TLR-1 on my G23

I like the versatility of my new TLR-1. I can mount it on all my railed handguns and also on my railed rifles.

I bought mine with the thought it would go on my bed side Glock, however it ended up on my Mossberg!

They make great lights.

I've got one on my M&P and it's great. Would definitely recommend it.

I've had good luck with Streamlight. I have about six of them on a 22 to shotguns. I favor the TLR-2 laser/light though.

Shooting a Streamlight TLR-2 equipped Winchester Defender 12 ga this evening. Can't miss with that laser.

Great light, congrats.
Just make sure your G23 is reliable with it on before you keep it like that for "serious" circumstances.

Then some steel guns.
Its the size of a Commander, got the capacity of a HiPower and can shoot 180gr bullets. G23 old school recipe for success.

Thanks for all the great feedback. I've decided to keep it mounted on my M&P. 357sig for now since that's the only one of my handguns I was able to test shoot with it attached, on my nightstand now. I will post some picks later to show how it looks with the MOE cantilever mount on my AR.

Many of us (myself included), had reliability issues with the TLR-1 mounted to the G23. Failures to feed. But, I did find the solution here on GT. The issue is the stock magazine springs. I changed them over to Glockmeister extra power mag springs, and the problem was eliminated.

I own two TLR-1s. Great lights at a reasonable price.

Yup I remember that thread. The G23 is my CCW and the only thing I have on it are Glock night sights my preference of course. I shot my M&P .357sig with the TLR-1 attached without a problem so I will keep it on there primarily with the only exception being if I get the itch to put it on my AR. I bought it at my local NEX with a coupon and no tax so yeah great price for me. Thanks for the heads up and for the links.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Ah... you're Navy, carloglock19. Thanks for your service. Fair winds and following seas.

I served in the Navy 1988 - 1991. 1 year shore command at Naval Station San Diego. 2 years on USS Independence CV-62.

Funny, though... about the TLR-1 / G23 issue. Now that I fixed it, I'm probably going to move my TLR-1 over to my FNP-45T and make that my primary HD pistol.
This thing is SWEEEEEET!

Thanks for serving as well. Yeah Im really liking the light, now I just have to make up my mind to keep it on the M&P My last tour was on a CVN now Im enjoying some shore duty then another IA tour and that should leave me with 2 years left prior to moving on to the civilian sector.

Here are a few pics of how the TLR-1 looks on my AR, just in case anyone is thinking about going the same route. I used the MOE cantilever rail piece. Enjoy!

Great light. I have one on my G17 nightstand gun. I sure wish the paperwork for my suppressor would show up. That will make a stellar home defense gun.

General Firearms Forum

Here is my suppressor on my pistol on visiting day (it is locked up at my dealer until the ATF says OK).

General Firearms Forum

That is a sales sample, full auto converted G17 in the case under mine. That would be sweet, but I am not a Class 3 dealer so it will never be.

I just purchased a TLR-2 for my bedside G19 and dont plan on using it with my carry G23, but I don't understand the mechanics of a mounted laser/light changing the feeding characteristics of the magazines. Does the added weight of the light/laser cause this, or the tensioning of the screw on the rail? Could someone explain why there are reliability issues after adding one of these on "some" G23's? Thanks
