Any of you guys use a Streamlight Strion

I was just curious if someone could tell me if the battery barrel was 1". I was thinking of getting a mako group pistol grip fore end for my AR and it takes a 1 inch flashlight.

Regular Strion or Strion LED? I can't find my regular one right now and my LED one is in my locker. The LED version is a little slimmer in the barrel than the standard one. I'll see about getting an answer for you tomorrow if nobody else jumps in in the meantime.

Just so happens that I have my streamlight Strion LED right next to me w/ a caliper right next to it!
0.930" at the ribbed portion of the tube. 5.766" long.

Interesting. The strion LED is pretty common where Im at and it hasnt gotten many complaints.

Mine is great. I comsume many less CR123 batteries.

I absolutely love the Strion LED. Tremendously great light. Maybe the best rechargeable in that size range on the market. I had the original Strion, too, and while I like it, the switch leaves a lot to be desired since it basically consists of a plunger that pushes the battery harder against the spring.

The LED has a clicky right? I have been thinking about getting one of those and using it as a rechargeable weapon light in either a Mako foregrip or the streamlight grip and a flashlight ring. I was wanting to know the battery barrel diameter on the Strion LED.

I have the Strion LED and really like it. Very bright, good value for the money, and love the rechargeable feature. The only thing I don't like is that if the battery runs down, it just shuts off. There is no warning, it does not "dim", etc.

The tailcap is "clicky".
One click = on
Click and hold = dim to 3 different brightness settings
Double click = strobe

Pretty sweet. If you get the package deal, you get both the AC and the DC charger.
