SBAL-PL is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pistol laser/weapon light I have this unit for approximately a month, so i cannot speak to its longevity yet, however, this unit is mounted to my duty weapon, which is used for primarily for night shift and warrant service. I've been a police officer for 23 years and have tried every Weapon light there is. Streamlight, Surefire, Lasermax, etc. They all serve their purpose, but the Steiner SBAL-PL has the most powerful laser module I've ever seen. Additionally, the white light is a perfect flood with no hot spot. Bottom line, best weapon light I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest quality pistol optic to date I have owned Surefires, Streamlights, Viridians... I've used the Inforce APL. None of these come close to the quality of the SBAL-PL. The entire rail attachment is metal, the light uniform and the laser is positioned at the top of the unit which is a huge plus. Well worth the money. The SBAL-PL is in a class all it's own.

Are there any holsters made yet to accommodate the SBAL-PL mounted on a Glock model 22?

Asked by: John B
Unfortunately, I have no information on whether holsters have been made to fit firearms with these devices attached to them. However these days, custom Kydex holsters are high-quality and many holster makers can fashion a durable, custom-fit holster for any firearm, to include those outfitted with attachments such as this.

What modes are offered for for this unit. Can light and laser be activated separately, and if so can I set what turns on upon activation.&nbsp;

Asked by: Dom87
The SBAL-PL has two operating modes. Mode 1 is laser only: Press either button once, and the laser turns on. Mode 2 is laser and light: Press either button twice, and the light and laser turns on. This is set into the software, and the user can not change the modes.

Where can I get a SBAL PL not in black? &nbsp;I have a Beretta M9A3 in Tan or FDE. &nbsp;So I am looking for a SBAL PL in FDE or Tan. &nbsp;Seems like everything on the internet is black. &nbsp;Do you know of a dealer I can order from? &nbsp;Thank you.

Asked by: Nickel
The SBAL-PL is currently only offered in Black. I will put the idea of making it in Tan or FDE into our tracking sheet for review.
