Nightstick TCM-10 Earns NTOA Tested and Recommended Status

Nightstick, a global manufacturer of professional tactical LED lighting products is proud to announce our TCM-10 compact handgun light has earned Member Tested and Recommended status from the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA). The 650-lumen single CR123 weapon light received an overall score of 4.14 on a scale of 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent).

One tester from Tennessee commented, “I put the Nightstick TCM-10 on my Glock 17. I tried it with several different holsters, and it fit like a glove in every one of them. Other weapon mounted lights I used in the past had rotating switches that I did not find ideal. The TCM-10 has two push toggle switches. The positioning of them for me was perfect and made activation quick and easy.”

Another tester from Maryland concurred, “The 650-lumen light output is more than adequate for CQB applications, and the switch falls much more easily to the hand than its competitors. The fact that the switch is more of a solid-state button than an actual switch meant a shorter throw to activate the light.”

A third tester from West Virginia commented, “Good solid weapon mounted light that withstands a beating. Dropped and rolled on concrete and rocks with little [cosmetic] damage and no functional damage.”

“The NTOA Member Tested and Recommended program is an ideal venue to independently evaluate our products under professional, real-world conditions. Officers and deputies from around the country field-test our lights extensively in both CQB and outdoor low-light situations as experienced in the line of duty,” says Brian Whalen, Marketing Manager for Law Enforcement and Sporting Goods. “Receiving an NTOA Member Tested approval means the TCM-10 performs to the highest standards that law enforcement demands and continues to deliver, when life depends on light.”

Since 2003, NTOA members have tested more than 2,000 products in real world situations through the NTOA’s Member Tested and Recommended Program (MTRP). Results of these tests are shared with the law enforcement community in their magazine, The Tactical Edge, their online database, their eNewsletters and of course with the product manufacturers.
