i was surfing ont he net a coupl weeks ago and saw a company named Applied Lasers (or something) has a green visible laser sight out. Anybody ever hear of this or have experience with one?

Nope, but SureFire has a visible green coming soon too. The L80

I heard Surefire say 'soon' on the L80 2 years ago.
Link Posted: 5/3/2003 11:10:52 AM EDT
I guess that "soon" was not direct at the public. We know that SureFire works on a different time dimension to the rest of us. That's why we hear little about new products until they are released other than at the SHOT Shows now. Al

these guys (http://www.law-17.com/UniversalLaser.html) have a visible green laser. it looks kind of clumsy. i'm not really a big fan of lasers...just thought the concept was neat.

I believe Beamshot has a day visible green laser that's some where down around 560-570 in the "nm" area. Most lasers I see advertised are still around 635nm 650nm and that will not cut it in daylight. The laser is round and mounts to the barrel. Anyone know of a way to mount a round laser to to a RAS ???

Scope rings.

Most of the new lasers come with spacers for use with scope rings. They work pretty well at close range, thought i see too many barrel mounted ones lose zero after a few shots

Guys, these green lasers are the shit! Normally I poo-poo lasers on any firearm, but the visible 532nm (neon green) has me reconsidering their use because of the incredible intimidation factor. I bought a MOD-1 modified 4.99mw green laser and the dot is blinding!

The modules are all made in Taiwan... but damn! [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid61/pf16797652eb0eadef241a952737d42a4/fc2e80fc.jpg[/img] While still a class 3a laser, serious eye damage will result if the beam hits an eye (man or animal). Megalaser makes some 15mw greenies. Classified as 3b. Serious stuff. [url]http://www.megalaser.com/gallery.htm[/url] Laser specs here: [url]http://www.accessdata.fda.gov-END Of Script Attempt-

There is one L80 in the UK that I can speak of. In fact I raided the parts box of a friend in New York to make it's handheld body. Both myself and the guy who has this laser have green laser points and the L80 made them look like toys - cheap nasty toys. The L80 beam was pure and the dot was intense and free from spill/bleed that my Greenie had. I say had because I dropped my $100 Greenie and it doesn't work any more. I agree that the shock-factor of a green laser means it could be more useful as a form of "intimidation". The ability to use it without the firearm attached would bring advantages in certain situations I believe. Al

Greg, but is this laser weapons mountable ??
Link Posted: 5/10/2003 10:11:52 AM EDT
Not unless you rig some home made mount... and even then, handheld laser pointers aren't designed to withstand shock/recoil. They also aren't waterproof, and can't be zeroed. However, cheap green lasers are failry new. My post was just to show what kind of raw materials are available. It won't be long for some company to build a kick ass rig. tango_down's link led to somebody who's already working on it. [url]http://www.law-17.com/GreenLaser.html[/url] The L80 sounds amazing BTW.

I've found the Greenbeam Laser (532nm) for a smooth $400 and the sales guy says it is weapons mountable and he's getting with his engineers to find out which mount. I'm to get back with him next week. I have this same 532nm laser on an ArmaLite M15A4 but with a barrel mount. Like the laser but don't like the mount.

I've got a 1mw Green Laser pointer that kicks the crap out of any Red Laser. Even the low power Green Lasers illuminate a room from the reflection. They're pricy compared to the Red but definitely worth the cool factor. I don't have lasers on any weapons because I'm of the opinion that a High Output Flashlight is more effective by illuminating the target and blinding the opponent. I know opinions are like rectal sphincter muscles, and this one is mine. Also, lasers, like tracers, work in both directions, except lasers transmit position prior to engagement.So, if you are going to let everyone know where you are, let's blind the shit out of them!

This topic actually came up a few months ago, and I had linked here to the Greembeam 2000 green laser gunsight ... [url]http://shop.store.yahoo.com/deharpport/greenlasgung.html[/url]

Yep - the guy's name is Dean. I bought another Greenbeam 532nm from him this week. At $400 he was about $40 less than anyone else.

The green megalaser is $350 for the 15 milliwatt and $170 for the 5 milliwatt. The 15 mW is nice and dangerous [:)]

Paul, I found 15 mW laser but the thing is a pointer and not weapons mountable. Do you have a link to the 15mW laser you're referring to ?? Tom
