100mw green laser range test
We bough an assortment of optics and lasers fron a company in China we met at the shot show last month. we were impressed with the quality of thier products and also the pricing. we got our order in and I decided to take home a 100mw green laser to test out.
I finally got a chance to test out the 100 mw green laser today. While I have some optics I usually use iron sights as I like to plink, not target shoot. this is my first experience with a laser sighting device. Now I am pretty much old school when it comes to guns, the only things I consider necessary are a sling, bipod and possibly a bayonet, (only because there is an attachment point for it) and stuff that needs batteries is just a pita.
Now we fooled around with these at the shop and could see the spot out to well over 100 yards in bright day light, but I was just not convinced it would really work on a gun. indoors you can light up a room with it, it is definatly not a toy. last week I got a carry handle mount for my AR15, with 16" barrel, mounted the laser on it and sighted it in with a laser bore sighter, I put the dot just above the front sight post.
At the range I was usnig 50 foot pistol targets at 50 yards with 62 grain bulleted brown bear ammo, and was shooting off a less than rigid table. I was there from 11 am to 1 pm and it was a bright sunny day. The laser spot was clearly visable at 50 yards, and covered the 3" black spot on the target.
I fired off about 40 rounds and was pretty impressed. I then took off the scope and shot a 5 round group with iron sights on the bottom of the target. Then I mounted a 4x colt style knock off scope and shot the 10 round group in the bulls eye. then I put the laser back and shot the lower 10 round group and then the upper 16 round group.
I am pretty impressed with this thing and can't wait to take it out plinking.
What kind of price on these?
Does it light cigarettes at 50 yards?
it looks like it should!! it will light up a room with no problem!
