Question What is the smallest weapons light for a Glock 19?

What is the smallest, most compact, weapons light for the Glock 19?

I already have a Streamlight TLR-1 HL for my full size guns, but I am looking for something small for my G19. It doesn't have to have high lumen.

Deadpoint Guide Rod Light

90 lumens, doesnt affect holster fit at all

The Streamlight TLR-7 seems very compact and powerful to me. It's probably not the smallest ever, though.

Very nice but holster availability is limited

I have a Surefire XC1 on mine. I never wished for a smaller light.

I was looking at these the other day online. Looked interesting. Something different from my Surefire X300 have owned for years now. May pick one up.

I have an XC1 on mine too, and also tried it on a G30S... FWIW, the XC1 is a bit too long for the 30S, but a TLR-7 fits great. I'd say either one of those on a 19. Definitely a lot of holsters for the XC1.

The g22 has an Inforce APLc. Looks a bit larger than the Surefire XC1. Web site says that it was designed for G19s and 23s, but it's still a nice fit on the larger frame. Controls are very easy to use, and in a very convenient place. One disadvantage is that it's hard to find a holster for it.

I'm on my 2nd. 1st one failed within a week, and was replaced by the company. This one shows no problems after 4 months.

Overall I like it, and would buy another one if I had a use for it

I carry a G19 with XC1, it's as small as it needs to be, any smaller would be of no benefit to concealment or comfort. Smaller would also require a smaller/less energy dense battery, with lower output and/or duration, as a result.
