I was looking at pics of soldiers in Iraq. They have these little things on the top of their handguards just behind the FSB. What are they and are they available to us civvies?

Did you ever consider the possibility that if you don't know what it is, you might not need it?

I think maybe you're talking about the visible laser mounted on the top handguard.Laser Devices makes several. I bought mine from Grant at G&R Tactical.

Hmmmm now I'm starting to understand uber tactical.

Repeat after me... I have to much money and no clue. I need to get laid rather than play airsoft.

Link Posted: 3/12/2005 12:19:04 AM EST
Dunno.
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 5:14:43 AM EST
LOL that's funny stuff! Oh well, I suppose I had it coming!

I heard they were infra red pointers. Basically a laser sight but with infra red light. I wanted to know they are named. I know what it does, I want to know what they are called. I am building an M4gery and would like a look alike for aesthetic purposes.

Also, for the record, I hate airsoft. Paintball is king!

How can you hate airsoft when you just quoted every toy tard's motto?

Umm because my rifle shoots real bullets and not some 6mm plastic ball? I just like the way they look. i wanted to know what they are called. i don't even know how much they are. If cheap enough, hells yes, I'll get one! If too damn expensive, oh well.

Jeez, tough crowd...

CLICK HERE for everything you need for your look-alike. It comes complete with a fake AN/PEQ-2A TPIAL "little thing on top of the handguard just behind the FSB" that is designed to hold the airsoft rifle battery.

-Randy

ETA: CLICK HERE for SMGLee's thread on the real deal.

did anyone ever tell him what it was? why do people have to be so preachy on here. Most chumps on this board only own an AR becasue of they way they look. Quit being elitists, and help a guy out. sheesh.

**edit** thank you double_r76 for being helpfull.

It is an infrared laser pointer. You need night vision to the the bouncing ball.

No- maybe you had a little razzing coming but not a bunch of jerks pig-piling on to tell you what a turd you are. ev01 has it right- too many preachy dicks just trolling around looking for drama or a flame war, instead of ar15 discussion .

there is a civie version called a otal for around 400 thats red or visable but that make you visable as well

Ya gawna make it all purty so as somebody will ask ya to th' prom?

Seriously though, might I offer a few things to consider before you spend your hard money?
- Do you want to put something on your rifle that will do nothing to enhance its capabilties but will enhance its weight?
- However much a clone costs, consider all the other things you could purchase that would enhance your rifle. At the very least, you could buy more ammo and shot more often.
- I don't know how long you've been shooting (at least ARs) but I would bet that if you're new to the AR world, you will regret spending money on just "gussying her up".

Finally, we all like cool looking ARs, however subjective the term "cool" maybe. But, many of us snicker behind the backs (or right in the faces) of those that purchase gear for "aesthetic purposes". I'm sure you would agree that firearms are not toys so why would you want tassles hanging from the handlebars and a shiny bell on it?

Again, just a few things to ponder before you let your hard earned cash wander.

It's not a laser, it's compact binoculars.

they are used when your looking down your barrel to see if it's loaded, and all of a sudden, see something moving in the distance... you don't have to turn your weapon around to look through the scope. you just raise your head a little and look through the 2 eye holes.

make sure you turn the binos on before looking through them...

Now, that's just uncalled for. You wearing a condom? Because if you're gonna act like a dick you might as well dress like one, too.

Must be too many cops or Renta-cops on here. They are always arrogant and think they know everything. Thats why cops get no respect. ANd they get real mad if you say something and they can't retaliate with anything more than words. Because w/ a badge they think they can say whatever they want.

Interesting how this can go off track and turn into a cop bashing thread so fast.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 12:01:03 PM EST
Not going off track, this happens on a lot of posts here. Its just seems to be a LOT of hotheads on here so I figure they sound lik cops, act like cops, must be cops or wannabees. A lot of other AR boards are so friendly. Just reasonable deduction. Many Cops are power hungry and if you talk back they will find something to charge you with (either sooner or later) to Win. Here they are restricted to words and that would irritate them to the point of Flaming Off at the mouth.
