Green is the color that the human eye can see the farthest
Kemp, TX (Vocus) September 3, 2009
Larson Electronics Magnalight introduced a weapon mount green laser sight with 532nm, continuous wave 5mW output. Powered by standard or rechargeable CR123A batteries and attached via a quick release Picatinny rail mount, the 11051-G green laser sight is activated by a tail cap switch or included pressure switch. The 11051-G green laser sight is made in the USA and sells for under $200.
“Green is the color that the human eye can see the farthest,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics. “Thus green lasers make ideal weapon sights. As such a distinctive color, green also is more noticeable, so it becomes easier to contain and control individuals once the beam is on them. In a military application, the green laser beam enables soldiers to communicate their presence and intentions before the situation escalates. The 11051-G has a quick release Picatinny rail mount, so it can be removed from the weapon and used in a handheld pen style. We wanted to avoid barrel mounting the laser, since the amount of punishment they take in that position ultimately destroys the laser sight."
“Finally, all the components of this green laser sight are made in the USA, including the aluminum housing brass threads, switch assemblies and machined mounts. We offer this laser at outputs starting at 5mW, but can provide higher power output to suit customer requirements. We have a lot of flexibility in this design, since it is built right here in Texas. Our American made HML-5M-CP spotlight is standard issue in the Escalation of Force Kit and now the Vehicle Checkpoint kit for the US Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. So, now we are looking to expand our offerings to include other useful tools for similar applications,” Rob concluded.
