Charging the GL19R 

  1. Switch off the light and open the USB cap to reveal the USB Type-C charging port and plug the USB A socket of the charging cable into an electrical outlet, then connect the USB Type-C socket of the charging cable to the light.
  2. The indicator will display red while charging and will turn green when fully charged.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to tighten the USB cap to maintain the dustproof and waterproof ability.

Note: 

  1. The tactical light is unavailable while charging.
  2. Recharge the light timely when the battery power is too low to ensure the normal life of the battery.
  3. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L18-1100P is approximately 2 hours from depletion to full charging.
  4. Recharge a stored light every four months to maintain the optimum performance of the battery.

Battery Level Indication Each time the light is turned on, the indicator will indicate the battery level and will last for 3 seconds. 

  • Green light on: saturated 100% - 85%
  • Green light flashes: sufficient 85% - 50%

Usage and Maintenance IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT SAFETY MEASURES BE EMPLOYED AT ALL TIMES WHILE HANDLING THE FIREARM. 

  • The use of a firearm under any circumstance may be dangerous. SERIOUS INJURY OR EVEN DEATH may result without proper training in the safe handling of firearms. Proper training should be obtained from an accredited firearms safety program conducted by competent, qualified instructors in the military, police academies or any certificated instruction programs.
  • Read your firearm’s manual before attaching your GL19R.
  • Never point a firearm at something you are not willing to destroy.
  • Fenix recommends that the GL19R should only be activated with the non-trigger hand while employing a two-hand grip on the firearm and with the trigger finger outside the trigger guard when possible. Failure to do so could result in an accidental discharge and serious injury, damage to property, or death.
  • Thoroughly practice (employing safe training conditions) with the GL19R and firearm before using the weapon in a tactical situation.
  • Disassembling the sealed part can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using only a high-quality battery.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, lock the light or remove the battery for proper storage.
  • If you want to turn off the battery indicator when using the tactical light, constantly click the switch close to the battery indicator 3 times with the tactical light switched off. By the last time clicking, the battery indicator lights up (green-red-green) to remind the user that the battery indicator has been turned off. At this time, the battery indicator will not light up when the tactical light is turned on, but the charging status will be displayed normally when the light is connected to a power source. You can reactivate the battery indicator function by reloading the battery or by repeating the above operation when the light is turned off.
  • If you shoot ammunition get the lens coated, try rubbing the lens with fine steel wool or Froglube clp.
  • Lock the light or remove the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Since gun maintenance requires the use of organic solvents, organic solvents contaminating key components of the light may cause malfunctions, and the light will not receive normal warranty service.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the light's performance as dirty contacts may cause the light to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons: 
    A: Poor battery level. 
    Solution: Recharge or replace the battery. 
    B: The contact or contact point of the battery or flashlight is dirty. 
    Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol.

If the above methods don't work, please contact your authorized distributor.

Great Weapon Light

Very bright with a useful beam. Good mix of both throw and spill. Fit well on several of my full size pistols from Glock, Sig, and Beretta. Decent run time on turbo and recharges quickly.

Glock17

Light fits perfect on my Glock17. Great controls with both strong and support hand. Have about 400 rounds with light, everything is working great. I have the pd35 tac and tk75 and both lights have been fantastic. This weapon light is keeping the experience 5 stars. Great work Fenix!!

Decent light but mounting solution leaves a lot to be desired.

The light will not work properly with any of Staccato's pistols. Staccato mills out the pic rail slightly which doesn't catch on the 1913 adapter (for asthetics I assume). The rail key should be full width on the rail (left to right + fore/aft and slightly taller). In addition, when the light is tightened down, the light itself actually rises up off the pic rail about 0.010"-0.015" and misses the rail almost entirely. A few shots in and the light flies off the pistol. If the gun uses a solid pic rail, it does work, but I'm not satisfied with the wobble due to the adapter having slop and the light rising off the rail.

Mixed feelings.

I'm currently using the GL19r on my 300blk sbr. The light itself is nice and bright, it also seems pretty durable. I like that the battery can also be changed quickly if it dies during use, without taking the light off the gun, and being rechargeable absolutely can save money on batteries. Still recommend having a backup though.

So what I dont like is the mounting solution, even when the 1913 rail insert is installed the light wobbles on the rail. What I ended up doing was zip tieing the light to the rail after mounting it to the rail. That fixed the wobble and the light seem quite solid now. I dont know how well the zipties will hold up under large volume of fire as they are thread threw the rail and close to the barrel.

If I could change one thing about the light the mounting solution would be what I'd change, even if it rasied the price on the light $10 or so. If Fenix reads this I really recommend something more robust.

In conclusion, if your planning on using this for a rifle light you may want to buy a pack of zipties as well. I cant speak of how the light works on a glock as I dont have a glock.

Overall I do like the light.

You should have been able to tighten the screw on the left side of the light if it needed to be a little tighter on your rail. The quick release is on the right side, but the opposite side has a screw that allows you to make adjustments.

Great Weapon Light

The GL19R is a great light. The 1200 lumen capability of this light is awesome. It is easy to install and easy to recharge. I am definitely going to have to get a few other of these Fenix weapon lights for my other firearms. This light is very sturdy and feels and performs solidly.
