Nope just a rocker on the back, momentary on and on. Switches to laser/light/laser and light.
I think they make a remote tape switch for it but I'm not sure.

Laser Devices Inc LAS/ TAC has both push button and pressure paddle switch models for under $250.


Take a look at G&R Tactical's website (industry partner), click on Products button and then the Laser Devices logo in the Lasers and Flashlights area.

I have an M6X with a long gun back plate and pressure switch. Light output is 125 lumens compare to the M6 which is 90 lumens. It is also water proof to 66 feet which the M6 is not. I would fork out the addition $ for the M6X if you want to mount it on a rifle I suggest the model with the long gun back plate. It comes with a pressure switch, although it is longer than most other pressure switches. The pressure switch will not fit in the Tango Down vertical foregrip cavity but Tango down is making a new vertical foregrip for the military that will accomodate the larger pressure switch. It will be available to the civilian market after the military gets a hold of it. If your going to go with the Insight or Streamlight light/laser combo I highly recommend the model with the rail grabber interface. If you grab the light on the other models that do not have the rail grabber interface you will noticed some play in bewteen the light/laser combo and the rail system. but the rail grabber system is rock solid.

Huge +1.

I bought exactly the same thing from grant. The las tac with the pressure switch. Awesome laser... much brighter than my friends' laser pointers.

And, at night, when it gets really humid, or there is a lot of gun smoke in the air... it is like aiming a light saber.

The LDI Las/Tac's are an excellent value with very strong performance, if you need any help or have any questions let me know.

Also, you do not want to use the Vltor mount for a laser, any time you remove the laser you'll have lost zero and will have to re-sight it.

i have a a colt m4 with a sir system and a KA foward grip.....what and where would u recommend for a mount and what type of mount....also if the pressure switch is necessary.
Thanks

Assuming you have a std. FSB, you'll need to mount it off of 3, 6 or 9. 3 & 9 o'clock are easier for trajectory calculations because they're on the same level as the bore.

A tapeswitch can be easier for activation but I'd first like to know if you're running a light setup and how it's activated?

The LDI mount is a good mount and true Picatinny spec but it's a bit tall, I prefer to use the Classic Weaver rings in low, they help keep the laser as close to bore as possible.



i am not using any light setup....just and aimpoint ml2...do u have any pics of the mounts u r suggesting?
