Most are using the newer Insight Technologies AN/PEQ2 infared laser/infared illuminator. I've also seen several of the older AN/PAQ4 B+C models. The older models do not have the infared illumination feature.

Insight Technologies will not sell them to civilians. Sometimes you can find a used AN/PAQ4C on Ebay or Sturmgewehr from time to time. Expect them to be asking $1,600-$3,000+. Forget about finding a AN/PEQ2, I've only seen one for sale ever. The guy was asking $5,000+. Your best bet will be the visible laser OTAL, Surefire L72( not sure if this the correct model number ), or the Russian made Corsak.

Guys he is asking for a military laser RANGE FINDER not an IR sighting device. They are not eyesafe. Go with a Leica.

I was a forward observer for 6 years and one of my main items of equipment were laser rangefinders. We used GVS-5's, GVLLD's, and now they have the new MELIOS. None of these laser rangfinders are civilian legal. Some foriegn governments and US units that can buy items off of the shelf are using the Leica's. If you can afford them, you can get them. Unless you're planning on calling in artillery, the cheaper Bushnell and Nikon models should be fine.
