Whelp, I had an issue with my Perst3 during my first night class. It stopped functioning normally and would only give a 4Hz strobe. When I replaced the battery (thinking maybe it was a low battery warning) the vis laser came on and wouldn't turn off, even with the switch in the "off" position. I shot an email to Ivan tonight so we'll see how this goes.

This wouldn't have fixed it totally, but were you running the pressure pad, and if so, did you disconnect it, and try to use just the on-board buttons?

I know it's not a Perst-3 but anyways... I got a Perst 4 and noticed that the spill when using IR is little wierd. When you crank up the power, there are some artifacts that appear (like the spill on a flashlight) pretty far away from the laser. Maybe it's some imperfections on the glass lens? Do you guys have the same performance with your lasers? The laser itself seems fine and the dot on what I'm aiming at seems pretty uniform.

It's not a deal breaker and I have another Perst 4 enroute since they are pretty awesome overall.

Yup - really noticeable indoors - outdoors, not really noticeable past about 10-15 yards on my 3. No idea what causes it - Power? Russian'ness?

It seems to me that the glass lens isn't totally sealed up against the unit and it looks like some dust can get inside the laser module cavity. Putting some gasket maker or any other RTV around the inside edge of the metal ring could help alleviate any further ingress of debris.


On another note, does anyone know the pinout for the PERST-3 or PERST-4 receptacles? I.E. what is pinned to these in the image?

Trying to modify a Surefire switch for someone who wants my old SR07-D-IT with a new SA6 plug (not cannibalizing the wiring from a Zenitco switch) however I only definitively know the pinout for my PERST-4M. If anyone can jumper their pins on theirs and figure out what activates the laser, that would be helpful. From what I remember from my PERST-4+, the switch can be all of momentary, constant on, or strobe and is just determined by how long the switch is actuated.
In case anyone is wondering, for the pinout for a switch for the PERST-4M is as follows:

  • Pins 1+2 = Constant On

  • Pins 1+3 = Momentary


I pinned mine to the former since brightness adjustment is tied to the constant on in the case of the PERST-4M/P.

Yes, I had seen that video from page 50; the unfortunate part is that the author (and the authors of other splice videos) never did a continuity check on the donor SA6 plug to check which pins were connected to which wire. Polarity doesn't matter since it's just completing a circuit, but I need to figure out what pair of pins to short together. I'm using new SA6 connectors that I ordered from Alibaba.

The easiest way to determine that is to have any of the PERST-3 and PERST-4 (other than P/M since I already figured that out for my own unit) owner use a short piece of wire to jumper pairs of pins together to see what actuates the laser(s).

If I can get that knowledge, I think I'd be comfortable in offering switch conversion mods to a larger audience of PERST owners.

Here's a couple pics of my own Hotbutton conversion.

Righty-O!



I use Duracoat "Magpul Tan".  All things considered, probably the best coating to use, IMHO.

On the splash-back, yes, it will score the diffuser cover (and laser pointer cover as well, if installed).  They definitely need to be taped up (for training) since the lens covers are just plastic.  If you had to use it un-suppressed, and damage it, Ivan and Zenitco are pretty good about sending replacement parts.  And shipping is definitely improving.

I am in for a batt cover/ FS post.  Would you be willing to look at different heights for passive shooting set ups?  Something in the 2.25" range.

And if you guys get the wiring sorted out, definitely in for a new tape switch and/or possibly a Hot button with Sino-Russian style connector.

The dust thing inside the housing sounds interesting.  Do you think that contributes to the artifact issue?  Are these things sealed and nitro-purged?  If not how a big a deal would it be to crack them open, blow them out, and re-seal (with new lenses if possible).  Can you say warranty voided in Russian?

^^^^ Rust-oleum is your friend

I tend to use a mesh gauze and hit every thing with three colours (forest green, army green and khaki - different proportions for different occasions) and some stripes...........looks messy, chuck it in a bush and you'll struggle to find it

Note: don't forget to use masking tape where required - once hit the objective of a DR 1x4....ssshhhhh

If I recall, a few(!) pages back, Russian Thunder didn't have a very good customer service rep.  Ivan is GTG.

Nothing on the BPT deal yet.  Probably a customs issue.  

Good lord just finished 85 pages of the Sionyx thread.  They are (and should) be interested in Perst Lasers.

The PERST-3 Illuminator is almost too powerful for the Aurora Pro. I don't know how much oscillation exists with laser diodes (I know LEDS fluctuate like crazy) but being able to grab everything up to 1100nm, I would like 1 or 2 clicks *lower* power on it. I played with it a lot a few nights ago - it's good at 50 yards, fully widened (screwed in) on lowest power. Closer than that, best results were with the diffuser cap on and cranked up to MAX power.

Kinda off topic but I was wondering if rails and other non laser accessories even go through customs the same as lasers? My rails never showed any customs out or in like my perst did.

Quick question about a Perst 4.

While using the IR laser on the low power settings, when I first activate the laser, it seems to brightly flash on a higher setting for a split second and then continue to illuminate at whatever setting I have the unit set on. From my research so far, it seems that this is normal behavior. It doesn't seem to be going to light saber intensity but it's definitely brighter than the what I have selected.

My concern though is that it's temporarily going to a non-eye safe intensity.

Thanks in advance for the input.

I, personally, always assume my zenitco products are not eye safe.  That loosely translated manual that says 'eye-safe' doesn't imbue me with confidence that their laser will not blind me or my dog.

Well..... unless there's a blue bolt in my gun.

But anyways, sounds like there's no hard data that we can trust out there saying this is eye safe. I'll refrain from force on force with it.

I'm considering opening a dispute with my CC company before it's too late.  We are almost at 60 days since I purchased it from Ivan -- it's been sitting in Russian customs for 45 days.

No fault on Ivan's part, but damn, not sure if it's lost or not.

Damn that sucks man. Is it still in customs? Mine was handed over to customs at 03:09 one morning and cleared customs at 03:10 same morning. Then stayed in that status for six days. Then updated to processed through a facility in MOSKVA PCI 7, RUSSIAN FEDERATION where it has remained for over three weeks.

I contacted Ivan about it and he assured me that it was not lost. He said Russian post office has never lost one of their packages. Says it is because of covid. They used to ship on passenger aircraft , but now only cargo aircraft.

But 45 days in customs can't be good.

That's what I'm thinking, it can't be a good sign.

I feel like a jerk opening a dispute, but I have to protect myself just in case.  If I recieve it before the dispute is solved, then I will close the dispute.  It's really all I can do at this point.

It's an Edgar Sherman Design (ESD) sling. Front sling loop is the Strike Industries Quick Detach Sling Loop. Essentially it is a slightly modified Magpul QDM; I bought it because the latter is basically unobtanium in the past few months.

QD loop on the rear is a standard one from Damage Industries.


Also, for those modding their switches: I worked in conjunction with another redditor to find out that on regular PERST-4 units, the remote switch is connected to pins 1+2 for both momentary and constant-on.

Also, for those modding their switches: I worked in conjunction with another redditor to find out that on regular PERST-4 units, the remote switch is connected to pins 1+2 for both momentary and constant-on.

ESD slings have quickly become my favorite (by far) and they found their way onto all my rifles :)

I feel like a jerk opening a dispute, but I have to protect myself just in case.  If I recieve it before the dispute is solved, then I will close the dispute.  It's really all I can do at this point.

I contacted Ivan about it and he assured me that it was not lost. He said Russian post office has never lost one of their packages. Says it is because of covid. They used to ship on passenger aircraft , but now only cargo aircraft.

But 45 days in customs can't be good.

Try emailing Ivan and see if he’ll get another moving for you. That’s what he did for me when my P2 say in limbo for over a month back in the Dec/Jan timeframe.

He just asked that I refuse the first order if it ever arrived.

It showed up a couple weeks after the second one arrived and I liked it so much I asked him to charge me for it, but not the expedited shipping. He set up a special webpage for me, sent the link, and I paid to keep both.
