    Need info on PEQ-14 aka LAM-1000

    Hey guys I am about to purchase a LAM-1000 otherwise known as a PEQ-14 by Insight Tech. Does anyone know the run time on the LAM-1000? No retailer has this information and Insight has not been returning my emails. Also does anyone know the range of the IR laser? I plan to mount on a long gun. Thanks.

    Do you guys do sale of IR laser/ Illuminators to civilians? I was planning to buy one second hand because most retailers only sell to LE/MIL.

    All IR weapon laser commercial sales to civilians are prohibited , but you can own one if you can find one.

    I hope the guy selling it to you is not Trey Dixon aka Stickman77. There are complaints about him on other boards and you will get nothing in return for your money. I think Victor also knows the story about him...

    "Today, Insight Tech-Gear's LAM-1000 is known to the U.S. Military as the ILWLP."
    Insight website.

    I was under the impression that the ILWLP was the PEQ-14?

    I found a couple second hand PEQ-14s.

    I also saw a post about Stickman77 on ARFCOM. Anyone know how that resolved?

    I would also strongly advise staying away from Mike Howard, as he's been re-selling some LE issued PEQs.

    Just verify where you're unit came from, better safe than sorry.

    A PEQ-14 is still on my list of things to get.

    Oh wow ok I'll keep that in mind.

    The PEQ-14 just added it's self after I was planning on getting a PEQ-15 and an M3X but I was wanted something in a small package. I was hoping to find a PEQ-16A or 16 but no luck.

    My bad...

    It was late last night when I read your message and I confused the 14 with the 15. You are correct, it is the peq14.

    Since "run-time" on a laser is pretty difficult to define, I'm guessing that your primary concern is how long the white light will go if left on?

    Product page says 1hr and peak lumens of 100 (manual says ">60"). While it means exactly what it says, what usually happens on an MFAL device like that is, even though the battery might be tapped enough to not provide enough voltage to the white light, there's often enough juice to run the laser(s) up to a certain point.

    Link to manual: http://www.insighttechgear.com/manuals/lam_manual.pdf

    Statement from manual: "The Laser Aiming Module (LAM) is available in two different series, Commercial and Law Enforcement. The Commercial series is denoted by the number “50” in the model number, eg. Model 150. The Commercial series offers a visible laser and visible illuminator only, NO infrared (IR)."

    LE variant is a Class 3B (older labels should read "Class IIIb") and is restricted. Has less to do with IR capability than it does with laser classification (these devices are classified per whatever the highest possible hazard emitter is), though the invisibility is a factor in what makes it a 3B device. Commercial version without IR should be a 3R device (used to be called 3a).

    You'd probably actually want the LAM-200/250, which is the variant that has a rail interface for MIL-STD-1913 type rails.

    I am looking online but can't find any secondhand. There sure are a lot of new one that I can't buy. Just for clarification would an LEO be able to buy me one?

    MY CC company gave me a credit back and they were going to go after Gunpal, but that POS Trey Dixon aka Greg Dixon never did a thing-total POS no matter what he says in his defence. Thief!!!!

    Using the 'search' button got me here but I have a different question.

    Does anyone have a thought on using the PEQ-14 / LAM-1000 on an M4?

    I saw it ONCE on an HK416 but they guy was getting ready to move and I didn't have a chance to chat him up.

    Off the top of my head, I am concerned about durability and the (rather low IMO) 60 lumen output. The IR laser seems strong enough but the illuminator seems only suited for close range. I am also not a huge fan of red lasers now green lasers are so available. However, the PEQ-14 is vastly lighter than just about any other combination of lights and lasers you have. Any thoughts?

    It's been done. The ones made to fit 1913 rails obviously fit, and no problems from a strict durability aspect, by which I mean that it'll take the recoil impulse from a carbine just fine...

    However, since this thread was created, I've seen the zeros on those things wander when put on a carbine.

    Those units were, however, were well-used before they got into our hands at the time, so while I got put off of using a PEQ-14 on a rifle/carbine (when some other, made-for-long-gun MFAL was available), I can't definitively call them a NO-GO for that.
