    Streamlight by far.

    The Glock lights are a standard incandescent bulb, the Streamlights are LED and much brighter.

    The Glock light looks good on Glocks. Streamlight has better light.

    I hear the TLR3 is a nice compact like, but it sits a little forward on the glock rail

    The TLR3 has a cheap plastic feel to it. I tried it out and returned it and went with the TLR1. It fits more guns and is made alot better. It is also brighter because it uses 2 batteries.

    Streamlight TLR-1. Aluminum instead of plastic and LED instead of incandescent.

    Do you guys think the "s" strobe function of the Streamlight TLRs is overkill?

    I have the TLR1 mounted on my Glock 34 for on duty use. It's a very bright light and works out well for me on the midnight shift.

    I have a Tlr-2 on a glock 22, though lately I can not get it tight enough to stay on, after 5-10 rounds it falls off... Any suggestions as I am going to try some locktite on it next.

    There should be 3 rail fittings that came with your light. Usually one on the light and 2 in the package. They lock into the recess area that runs perpendiclular to your rails. With that in place even if it come loose, the light cannot come off unless you depress the spring loaded mounting screw to release it. If that rail fitting is in place and your light is "falling off" You have a problem and should contact streamlight.

    Out of those two, Streamlight. But my choice would be, and is, the Insight WX150. Great light.

    This!

    Only $30 more than the TLR1, but
    1) brighter (10 or 20 lumnens)
    2) MUCH easier to mount and dismount. It snaps on and off with no screws and it's more secure than the TLR1.

    It also has a strobe function... can't remember if the TLR1 has that function.
