Laser sight for $8 shipped

#1

Post by Rex B » Mon Nov 13, 2017 8:32 am

I bought 3 of these recently:

https://www.banggood.com/Mini-Red-Laser ... rehouse=CN

Pros: Bright red dot visible far beyond normal SD ranges. All aluminum. Picatinny mount, with removable rail to add a light below it.
Cons: Does not include batteries. It takes 3 of 392/384 or SR41 cells

Pretty well pleased with these, especially for the price.

I got a couple of these for my boys on Amazon, almost embarrassed to say but.. The really are pretty good little red dots. Easy to adjust, beam is bright and tight...
I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. . . I’ll let you know.

Rex B, how does the on/off switch work? Do you have to hold it down or does it click on/off?

it clicks. Has a decent quality feel to the switch.

I noticed this one a couple days later, so I bought it to take a look. About a dollar higher. It came in today:

https://www.banggood.com/Low-Profile-Re ... rehouse=CN

This one is twice as long, about the same thickness as the smaller one without the bottom rail.
Instead of the push-button switch, it has a slide switch at the rear. To activate it, you press the switch to the left with your right index finger, much as you would to disengage a cross-bolt safety. That works well and is intuitive, but just packing it in a foam-lined case can turn the light one (and run down the batteries), It does use the more common AG13/357 batteries.
Frankly, I saw no advantage over the smaller one. The switch exposure was a deal-killer, so it went into the box.

Battery life for button cell lasers is usually pretty bad but for a range toy it's not a big deal. Just ordered two based on your review. Let's see if they get here from China before Christmas.

Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.
