Reviews & Ratings for Steiner eOptics DBAL-I2 Dual Beam Aiming Laser Device w/ Visible and IR Laser
In America,one get gets what one pays for. How many times have I gone cheap only to find I would have to buy three of an item because of breakage and reliability issues.
Ya it takes a few times to learn to spend the money up front and your future woes can be resolved. Lasers and Illumination device Most Helpful Negative Review Simply stops working and no customer support. I used this unit for about a month before it simply stopped working.
It was all indoors never was wet , no bumps, no drops, no real shocks to the unit other than going up and down stairs, and it just died.
I called the support line several times I had to leave a message on a basic answering serv Good perforamance, reasonable price. I have yet to try the IR laser.
The green laser is nicely visible and it's easy to sight it in vs. The green laser may not be ideal for bright and outdoor use outside of maybe 15 meters. May not work well for a lefty without the pressure pad, as others have mentioned.
I wish there were a second switch to allow for momentary vs. I suppose it's not that big of a deal to double click the button.
I inadvertently left it on and had a dead battery when I checked it out. The spring tension made it slightly awkward to change the battery. Probably not something you would want to do in a real world scenario. Fortunately, the battery is quite short. Report Abuse Share Comments. Optics Planet was running a smoking deal on these back in November so I decided to give one a try. Its been great so far and I cant wait to try it out with NODs. The visible laser is easy to pick up and the pressure switch is easy to manipulate.
I would definitely buy again. Laser is quite visible and is a very sharp dot. Mount is lever thrown and also very solid. Includes removable lens covers which are attached and swing away. A very nice piece of gear, made well, feels solid and performs flawlessly. It mounts solidly to the rails and the documentation details zeroing and is very straightforward. I like the way it is constructed, very milspec and sturdy. Green laser is very bright and very easily seen in bright daylight even on low.
IR beam is also very bright and will mark target at a very long distance! Both beams are adjustible. Gave it only a 4 star because of the high price and weak description. Excellant product, poor published information. Very high quality Super Bright Repeatable accuracy. Always have been a Steiner fan because of their quality products. Dbal-i2 was a great add to the collection, very rugged with a secure mount and can't beat the price either.
Great choice if your looking into a device like this I have it mounted at 12 o'clock with a Surefire MV Vampire light mounted at 3 o'clock and a Grip pod at 6 o'clock. The size of the dbal interferred with the light so I had to reverse the latch on the light and install it first so both units would attach to the rifle. I like the features and the controls. I just wish the civilian-legal ir laser was more powerful; however, it still functions well.
That and the cost are why I gave it 4 stars. I also recently purchased the more expensive Steiner dbal with the illuminator. I'm still debating which setup is better. The illuminator works much better than the vampire light; it almost overpowers the ir laser. Expensive ir laser less powerful than preferred.
There's only 1 DBAL. As expected, this version of the DBAL performs flawlessly in all settings. As NV has gotten cheaper on the civilian market, these tools are becoming more viable. Having both a NV and daytime aiming point is great.
Controls are aces compared to cheaper imitations. Tape switch is superior in operation and durability compared to cheaper imitations. Mount height is made to clear an ACOG, some low mounted optics may have issues in close observations.
I have mine mounted on an M4 clone with a Steiner M Any mount with a center line at or above 1. Great product, performs up to its price point. The DBAL set the standard for weapon mounted lasers a long time ago. These models have powerful and consistent lasers which really are noticeably better than the competition. The only complaint about the I-2 is the NV pointer mist be zeroed individually from the red laser.
Quality Ruggedness reliable operation. For the price you can't beat it. I've looked around for sometime, and found this to be the most reasonable. High quality and durable construction. Will definitely pick Optics Planet and Steiner products in the future. Durrable Military Quality Night vision compatable resonable price. There are no reviews that match your criteria.
