DBAL-D2 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Own the Night - Force Multiplier. Worth the high price, every penny. This illuminator/laser is easy to mount, setup, zero and is built like a amphibious tank. The brightness of the IR illuminator enhances even older Gen2 level NV optics making them very usable. What is most notable is the distances you can get out the IR light and IR laser - exceeded my imagination. Even the visible green laser is intense enough on the high setting to utilize during bright sunlight at 50 foot plus some. Because the visible laser and IR laser are mechanically dependent and in sync, setting IR laser zero is a breeze. Very high quality, and state of the art NV solution - truly a coyote killing tool or force multiplier when utilized properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third DBAL-D2, upgraded from I2 This is the third D2 I've owned. Previously had two black I2's that I swapped out for two black D2's (both from Laser Devices originally), both in red visible, that were spot on. The current one I have (from Steiners) is my first tan one, and first green laser from Laser Devices. Everything is spot on. Superb quality on all units. One nice feature of the D2's over the I2's is that the lasers are co-aligned, so once you sight in your visible laser, you know your IR laser is on point. The illuminator is easy to use and adjust for focusing. The only downside I could say about this product is how big it is. The illuminator just hangs off to the side, so in some configurations, like the Tavor, it makes mounting somewhat of a pain if you're also throwing on NVD. I barely got my ACOG/Co-mini/DBAL-D2 on the rail, but that's extreme. On a side rail it is no issue either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for night operations. DBAL-D2 is a very effective piece of equipment. I prefer using instead of a PEQ-15 due to the illumination feature and the more robust build quality. It's bigger in size but doesn't interfere with daytime sight picture paired with a EOTech and weight is a non factor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Piece of Gear I bought this laser based on it's features and due to the visible and IR lasers being slaved, which makes it easier to zero. My only experience with it at this time is when I zeroed the visible laser. It seems to be a solid piece of gear. My only complaint, which prompted the 4 star rating is that the IR illuminator is large and hangs over the hand guard requiring me to remove my tactical light.

It appears there is a spot to mount a reflex sight on the D2. Can you advise what sight fits this unit?

Asked by: nocguy

what is the best laor sight for a 308

Asked by: nebp
It depends on the application. If target shooting, a DBAL-A3 is an excellent choice. If hunting and a large but focused IR Illumination is required out to 800 meters, than the DBAL-D2 would be recommended.

What kind of connector does the pressure pad use to plug into the laser? Is it proprietary to Steiner, or will I be able to purchase/fabricate one that would be able to connect with off the shelf parts?

Under the "Specifications" it states that the Item Number #9001 visible laser output power is LESS than 5mW, while the #9002 is given as GREATER than 5mW. Is there a typographic error as both are listed as having Class IIIa visible lasers?

Asked by: BugBug
The page has a text error. Both optics are LESS "<" 5 mW
