    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.

    What...I have a new caliper and wanted to try it....

    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.

    mine being the regular strion has a momentary tail switch is just kind of finicky
