Safariland announced the introduction of a new light attachment for pistols called the Rogers’ Rail Lite. Â The system uses a Streamlight Microstream flashlight with the rail, and the total package has a very affordable MSRP of $48. Â There are a number of things that I like, and do not like, about this system.
- offset nature allows for easy activation with the support thumb
- can be used as a standard flashlight (not attached to the gun)
- allows both hands to be on the weapon
- uses easy to find battery – a single AAA
- affordable pricing
- relatively low power: Â a mere 28 lumens and 683 candela
- since the light is offset, it is not likely to work with existing holsters
- unclear on how easy or fast it is to put light on gun; certainly too slow in an immediate emergency
In the below video, Georgia Shooter examines the Streamlight Microstream. Â In the video, it looks brighter that the 28 lumens would suggest.
What are your thoughts on this new light system?

28 Lumens is way underpowered for a light that size. A ZebraLight is over 100 lumens and it uses a 1.5V battery as well. I suspect they’re using old technology for the light.
Agree, but the Zebra is also 3x the MRSP….. So you would expect to loss something with the lower price.
