Closer Look: Streamlight ProTac 2.0 Rail Mount

This gun light produces a blinding 2,000 lumens without sacrificing run time.

One company celebrating a milestone this year is lighting-solutions company Streamlight—50 years in the business and 50 years at the forefront of lighting technology.

Unveiled at SHOW Show 2023 in Las Vegas, Streamlight's new ProTac 2.0 Rail Mount weapon light continues the company's technological advances. A package specifically developed for first responders, the 2.0 is the newest product line in the ProTac series, and most advanced.

One of the new innovative features is the SLB 50 high-output battery, which can run an ultra-bright beam of 2,000 lumens for 2 1/2 hours (longer times in lower modes). In the video above, Game & Fish Editorial Director Adam Heggenstaller chats with Streamlight's Brett Marquardt about the new ProTac 2.0 RM at SHOT Show 2023 in Las Vegas.
