DBAL-A3 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product! For those on the fence, or balking at the price-point, if you are a serious shooter that does any ammount of night shooting with nvd/nods these are worth every penny. Rock solid. The features of this unit, you would be hard pressed to find something that outdoes this without spending a small fortune and or having your own laser r&d shop. The only "bad" thing I can say about them, is that for the money they should come with a LaRue mounting system, but for most and myself included this is hardly a deal-breaker. The stock mounting system leaves a little to be desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DBAL-A3 Definitely sturdy. Have not been able to use it during a training session but appears that it will hold its own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DBAL-A3 The product is well manufactured and looks to be of high quality. The selector can be hard to use during night ops. However, with training the issue can be solved. Use of an additional IR light will help at ranges 75m to 100m.

Is the green laser a direct to green laser diode or is it a diode pumped solid state laser?

Asked by: Tim C
The laser in the DBAL-A3 is a pumped solid state laser. By next year this will be converted to direct.
