hi! new to ar15.com, what a great resource. i am wondering which if any, ir lasers are lagal for us lowly civies to own. i have seen sites that sell them to LE/military only, but then as a footnote, it states that federal regulations prohibit ir lasers with a "constant on" feature. any help/info would be great and thanx in advance!

I don't think the IR lasers are illegal to own, it's just that the manufacturers don't want to sell to non LEO/military due to liability issues (i.e. eye damage caused by the laser) IR lasers are offered for sale on these boards, just keep your eyes open.

Kid, you'll put your eye out! Seriously, IR lasers can be very, VERY dangerous.

augman, eh? hey california kid, what exactly do you mean by dangerous??? are they a hazard to my own vision?

Yes, even very low power lasers can burn cells in the retinas of your eyes if they are pointed directly at your eye. That includes wavelengths that you can't see.

Probably not. What SASS are you referring to?

I think you're confusing this unit with the AN/PAQ-4C. The AN/PAQ-4A is the predecessor to the AN/PAQ-4C currently in use (and on bluelinegear.com). It is inferior in output, and it's carry handle mount is not as solid. It is still a capable device, just not as improved as the '4C. $450 is a damn good price, however.
