As handguns get more compact, so must rail-mounted lights. Carrying a compact pistol with a light almost as big as it is counterintuitive. For this reason, Nightstick launches its TCM-10 and TCM-10-GL compact weapon lights. The 650-lumen beam provides critical threat identification and target discrimination. Likewise, the green laser on the TCM-10-GL offers a quickly identifiable aim point.

Featuring a 6061-T6 aluminum construction with type III hard anodized finish and polymer rear housing, the lights are rugged and have a drop rating of 2 meters. Likewise, the IPX7 waterproof rating provides waterproof properties down to 1 meter for 30 minutes. As a result, the lights can handle hard use in hard environments without worry.

Both TCM-10 and TCM-10-GL models feature ultra-performance LEDs and optimized TIR lenses. The combination delivers a bright and long-reaching 650-lumen beam with a 136-meter reach. Correspondingly, operating on a single CR123 battery, the lights have a high runtime of 2 hours. With the battery installed, the lights weigh a light weight of 2.5 ounces.

Although the TCM-10 features light only, the TCM-10-GL also includes a daylight-visible green laser for rapid target acquisition. The laser is adjustable for both windage and elevation for easy zeroing at your preferred distance.

An ambidextrous rear-facing toggle switch offers constant-on and momentary-on operation. On the TCM-10-GL model, the toggle switch also operates the laser. In addition, the lights offer a programmable ON/OFF strobe mode and battery lockout to prevent unintentional activation.

The weapon lights boast compatibility with over 240 handguns (with accessory rails) via five included handgun-specific rail inserts. Likewise, a spring-loaded rail clamp with a coin-cut screw head provides fast, toolless installation. With dimensions of 2.5”x1.1”x1.2”, the TCM-10 and TCM-10-GL are perfectly fit with compact, concealed-carry handguns.

“Leveraging improved LEDs and optimized circuit design improvements we created these two new weapon lights to provide law enforcement and handgun owners a more powerful and function-rich compact weapon light for threat identification and confirmation, when life depends on light™,” says Brian Whalen, Public Safety Marketing Manager for Nightstick.


The Nightstick TCM-10 and TCM-10-GL compact weapon lights are available now, with MSRPs of $210.90 (TCM-10) and $333.00 (TCM-10-GL). For more info, please visit Nightstick.com.
