The New Rogers’ Rail Lite from Safariland

Rogers Rail Lite

Safariland announced the introduction of a new light attachment for pistols called the Rogers’ Rail Lite.  The system uses a Streamlight Microstream flashlight with the rail, and the total package has a very affordable MSRP of $48.  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
  • lightweight
  • affordable pricing


  • relatively low power:  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.  In the video, it looks brighter that the 28 lumens would suggest.

What are your thoughts on this new light system?

Agree, but the Zebra is also 3x the MRSP….. So you would expect to loss something with the lower price.
