    I just bought one of these as well and so far am impressed.

    How is the illumination? How far would you say the illumination is effective and the laser distance? Are you able to use the laser without the IR illuminator?

    Laser and illuminator are slaved. Laser is pretty good, comparable to other decent ďcivĒ lasers. Iíll compare directly to the MAWL C soon. Maybe tonight if Iím still bored. Edit: it looks roughly the same as a MAWL C pointer.

    The illuminator is intended for short range use, and performance is as expected. Its pretty loud up close, falls off with distance quickly. Itíll do what you really need with a pistol at night.

    I did notice I had to max the elevation adjustment on a Gen4 G19, and even then, the zero is only good at CQB distances. The dustcover just has soooo much slant to it, so that gun will mostly get shot through the RMR. I got a great zero on a Gen 5 G19. Iím hoping to try out some other pistols, but that might go on the backburner, since I shoot Glocks, anyway.

    Agreed with everything 1168 says. This guy does a pretty good review that compares it to a DBAL A3: https://youtu.be/N6MpPjn0lFo Spoiler alert: it is NOT a DBAL, and I don't think it's meant to be. It's more of a floodlight as opposed to the DBAL's spotlight - which for a pistol is better anyway.

    Right now mine's mounted on a 300BLK pistol, and it was within an inch of my 50 yd zero when I mounted it. Adjustment was easy and I'm happy with it. The laser "dot" is bigger than I'd like at 50 yds, but since it's primarily designed for a pistol I'd say it's about perfect and I'm using it outside its design parameters.

    I didn't like that you couldn't turn on the IR laser without the light at first, but the more that I think about it the more I can't think of a situation where I'd need to do that. So slaving them together probably makes a lot of sense.

    Haven't heard anything about the price yet, but if the MAWL and PEQ-15 are anything to go by, probably so.
