***The Steiner/TNVC TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 should fit in most holsters designed to accept the Surefire X300-family, however due to variability between holster manufacturers and fit, especially custom Kydex holsters, compatibility cannot be 100% guaranteed***
Night Goggles Inc and TNVC are proud to once again partner with Steiner eOptics to bring an highly anticipated, affordable, feature rich, next generation Class 1 IR laser aiming module (LAM) to the market! The Steiner/TNVC TOR-MINI IR VPC (Variable Power Control) is now available in a (v)2 configuration and manufactured by Steiner eOptics, and sold exclusively through TNVC and Night Goggles Inc!
Once considered niche products with little use outside of military and law enforcement, night vision and thermal technologies are now embraced by the hunting and civilian enthusiast communities. Many users have come to realize that under certain circumstances, Class 0.7mW IR cause excessive blooming and laser splash at close ranges and with small game, degrading accuracy and precision and obscuring targets.
While most LAMs on the market rely on neutral density filters and/or active supplementary IR illumination to mitigate blooming effects, the Steiner/TNVC TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 features a variable power aiming laser that can be switched between 0.2mW, 0.4mW, and 0.7mW by holding down the onboard “FIRE” button, providing an easy-to-use human interface to switch between output levels to match any target size or environmental conditions. The TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 gives the user total control to adjust IR aiming laser output on the fly to place precision fires on targets large and small, from bad breath distance to over 270 yards, whatever the lighting conditions.
As its name implies, the Steiner/TNVC TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 is small and lightweight, weighing in at only 1.6 ounces, yet built to last with a Type III Hardcoat Anodized, machined aerospace aluminum housing. The TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 is also dust and splash-proof to IP54 standards, and features an adjustable Picatinny rail interface to fit a wide range of pistol and long-gun rails. The TOR-MINI IR VPC’s small mounting footprint makes it ideal for mounting on pistols and short-barreled rifles with limited rail space, and is equally at home on a .22lr varmint pistol to a large frame hog hunting rifle, or even mounted to a thermal weapon sight to allow spotters to detect game and point out targets to hunting partners using night vision devices.
While the original TOR-MINI IR crossbolts were provided a secure user configurable mounting system, they were a little bit more difficult to install properly. The newest TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2s feature an more user-friendly, improved rail mounting system. Instead of the two crossbolts on the original TOR-MINI IR, these units feature a more robust rail clamp and mounting system, including a user-configurable recoil lug that can be positioned in one of six (6) different positions, allowing the TOR-MINI IR to fit almost any rail interface as well as allowing the user to fine-tune it’s positioning on the rail.
Moreover, the rail clamp itself has been enlarged and simplified, making it easier to install, and two slotted screws replace the long Allen screws in the initial versions.
The TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 is not only small, lightweight, durable, and capable, but also extremely affordable, proving that not everything to do with night vision needs to be expensive. The TOR-MINI IR VPC (v)2 is manufactured in the USA and backed by Steiner eOptics’ 3 Year Warranty, and is one of the best values for such a versatile product on the night vision market!
