    I’m really considering buying the Airforce Laser. If anyone has one, how far can the red beam easily be seen in bright sunlight ? I just want one to add to the wow factor . I know green dot is better but I don;t want to spend that much.

    Would the red dot be any brighter then a regular laser pen ?

    cadeau I bought a aimshot green laser for 129.00 plus shipping from azeotek.com Its about 40.00 more than an Airforce laser but it is alot eaiser to see during the day than my friends Airforce laser. I had to mount the laser with a one inch scope ring which will add to your cost.

    I have an Airforce Laser and I use mine for inside 20 yards shots only and it works pretty good but, you can get better one’s.

    If you want to see it during the day, go with green. More visible. Paints a ½” dot on a white wall @ 100 ft during a bright sunny day. You can even see it well if shined onto green tree leafs.

    I went with a Greenbeam 1000 with R1 mount as recommended here: http://talonairgun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2402

    Best price I found was at Opticsplanet: http://www.opticsplanet.net/beamshot-laser-sights-gb1000.html

    Both red and green laser power output is limited to 5mW. I’ve seen them at 20mW also but at $400+

    Laser pointers are 3~5mW

    Evil and sharpshot I got the gun cases at http://www.pelicanproductsonline.com Their the 1700 cases. They are great for traveling because you can throw them in the trunk and your guns are completely protected.

It should be here tuesday or wednesday, Even thou it may not be as good as the green laser, atlease my unit will all be Airforce products. Except my scope. Its a Leapers. I’ll let you’s know my take on it after I try it for a bit.

    Well I got my Airforce Laser 🙂 I’m happy with it . It works pretty good in my standards. In bright light I can see the dot on paper at 15 yards ok. I can see it even farther through the scope.
    Now my Condor has more WOW factor.

    Tonight just as it was getting dark I was looking through my scope with my Airforce Laser on and I can see a red spot on the hydro poles that are at least 500 yards away.
    Now remember, with the naked eye you’de never see it but with the scope it can be seen ! So the beam is prety bright.
    I have it sighted in for about 10 yards, Works for me 8)

    Is it possible to turn that laser on and off without the extended switch? I like to keep things simple and I have no problem with reaching forward to turn it on.
