I used to own a CQBL-1, one of the great things I liked about it was the fact that the IR laser was inline with the bore, so no parallel offset zeroing business was needed.

These are the only ones I know of.

CQBL-1
ITAL/ITAL-C (discontinued)
Night Optics Night Chase
LaserMax Uni-Max
Crimson Trace CMR-201 IR
Coming soon, sort of, the Brolis 3 (from the photos, they don't seem to be exactly inline with the bore, but very close).
streamlight Tlr2-ir and irw
Surefire X400V

Any others?

I dont think the ITAL (Steiner) is made any more is it?

IDK, we always just adjusted our lasers to match the offset (laser parallel to the bore) and just trained for it. Wanna hit COM? aim a inch or so left and high. It was mad easier than adjusting for range (not that it's hard).

eta- guess that is parallel offset zeroing.

It's really no different than zeroing the inline one you pictured, or learning how to shoot close range with sight stand offs.

Thats what I was thinking. Damn shame really I'd love an ITAL priced around what the OTALs are.

ETA: theres gotta be a Streamlight and PERST models, right?

Offset zero doesn't matter.

You still have to hold off a bit at close ranges and at 50 yards plus, the bloom and your group will be larger than the offset.

I've shot out to 400 yards with 100y cowitnessed IR with no difficulty.

Change my mind.
Help me understand why it's a big deal?

Mostly OCD. I realize most lasers are around 2-3 MOA wide anyway and head mounted IIT aren't going to get PID at any range where it matters.

I'm a huge huge fan of the KISS principle. No doubt offset isnt that big of a deal but I like making my life as simple as possible....One less thing to hold over off remember fiddle fuck with during sight in surely does fit that bill.
