Lights that were compared to the Olight PL Pro
- Streamlight TRL-1 HL
- Fenix GL 19R
The ability to recharge the light without removing it from the pistol rail is a real plus. We were also really impressed with the light output and the wide beam. The Olight is perfect for those looking for a pistol light that floods an area with light.
There were 3 main negatives with the light which included

Olight was founded in China in 2007. In 2015 Olight’s first weapon light was produced called the PL-1.
In 2017, Olight build an independent 3,900 square meter modern production base. They also Celebrated their 10th Anniversary by inviting global customers, suppliers, fans, and employees to our headquarters in China.
In 2019, Olight held their first O-Fan Day festival in the United States and launched the PL-Pro, the first weapon light in the world for both pistols and rifles.
One of their mottos is “illuminate Your World”
The Olight PL-Pro Valkyrie comes out of the box set up with a Glock rail adapter, but it can be switched out with the Piccantiny 1913 adapter. Also included is a USB power cord with a mag lock attachment for recharging the light.
The light came charged, but I went ahead and charged it up for the 1.5 hour charge time.
Upon receiving the PL-PRO, it is in Lockout mode. To initiate its first use, press and hold both switches simultaneously for approximately two seconds until the brightness increases, signifying that it has successfully exited lockout mode.
I had to read the directions on what to do. At first the light wound’t turn on with a click and release. I had to keep holding down the light button because the light was in lockout mode described above. Once I read the directions, everything made sense.
Upon my first observation, the light presented itself as a robust and well-built unit. Its streamlined appearance stood out, especially when compared to others in the same category.
The light is designed to be ambidextrous, allowing the same functionality to work for both left and right handed people. The light is really intuitive and feels natural to turn on and off the light.
When mounted on my Walther PDP Pro with the Olight PL-Pro Valkyrie, the on/off light buttons are just past the trigger guard and make for a perfect fit.
While the Walther PDP is a full sized pistol, the Sig M18 uses a compact-length slide with a 3.9-inch barrel, making the weapon lighter and handier overall. The Olight fits, but I found it sits a little further away from the trigger guard, making it not as convenient to use on this gun vs the Walther. The Olight also sticks out much further on the M18.
Quick Product Overview
Gun | Rail Compatibility
The Olight PL Pro is compatible with either a mil-std-1913 rail or a Glock-style rail system. The pre-installed Glock adapter (labeled GL) facilitates immediate use on all Glock-sized rails. In instances where firearms utilize Picatinny (mil-std-1913) rails, users are required to replace the GL adapter with the included 1913 adapter, utilizing the screws and socket head wrench provided in the package.
Since I don’t own any Glocks or Glock rail guns, I switched out the Default Glock adapter for the Picatinny 1913 adaptor. Attaching the light to my Walther PDP Pro and Sig Sauer P320 M18 was super easy and switching between pistols was super quick.
Open the Olight PL Pro’s swing arm, as demonstrated in the illustration. Ensure that the insert properly fits into the notch on your rails. Close the swing arm once it is properly aligned.
I really like the way the swing arm works, without the need for any tools to attach the light to the pistol or rifle with a Glock or Picatinny 1913 rail system.
Operation of the Olight PL Pro
The PL Pro comes with several mod options
- Constant On: Quickly click either switch to turn on the light at the memorized brightness level. Single click again to turn off the light. While the light is off, perform a quick double click on either switch to enter high mode.
- Momentary On: Press and hold either switch to activate the light temporarily; release the switch to turn it off.
- Change Brightness: Execute a quick double click on either switch to toggle between high and low brightness modes.
- Strobe: Simultaneously press both switches to activate the strobe mode. In strobe mode, either single click on a switch or press both switches simultaneously to turn off the light.
- Lockout/Unlock: Press and hold either switch for approximately half a second, then press and hold the other switch for about two seconds until the light turns off. In lockout mode, a single click on either switch activates momentary on (approximately 100 lumens). To exit lockout mode, press and hold both switches simultaneously for about two seconds until the brightness increases, indicating the light is now unlocked.
