OTAL-C IR is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for my application I'm using the Otal c ir for feral pig eradication in south Texas brush. In combination with my PVS-14 3rd gen it makes for a very fast shot. The only down side is it will not work with my 2nd gen stuff/ I do have to use an ir illuminator to cut down on blooming with this laser/ I would buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & compact option Simple & lightweight laser-only option is great when paired with a seperate IR illuminator/light. Giving aiming & illumination capabilities. The lack of onboard temporary switch will basically necessitate the use of a pressure pad, but that's a small issue. Battery life is great & the device is rugged, maintaining a slim profile when mounted to the top rail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has exceeded expectations! I bought this one week ago and just tested it out with my NVGs. As good as what we used in the military. I’m impressed.

As far as &ldquo;offset&rdquo; goes. Can this be ran at the 3 o&rsquo;clock? Or was it specifically made for the top of the rail?

Asked by: CaptainKook
Hello, You can most definitely mount it as 3 o clock. It should absolutely have enough adjustment to get on pretty much anywhere on the rail as long as everything is properly straight.

So if I buy an ir illuminated light I will not be able to see the ir beem. Ir is night vision only?green or red?

Asked by: Flapjackjonez
Maybe. An IR laser outputs all of it's energy into a small space, where an IR illuminator spreads its energy into a wide field of view. Unless you get a very powerful IR illuminator, you will be able to see the IR laser. Notice, our DBAL product line has IR lasers and IR illuminators, and the laser is easily viewed with the illuminators. Yes, IR is only viewable with night vision. We do also sell the OTAL-C with a red laser, model 9055, and we also sell the OTAL-A with a green laser, model 9052.

What&rsquo;s the max. effective range without night vision

Asked by: 0884
Without night vision, that would be zero meters. Infrared is not in the spectrum of visible light that the human eye can pick up. In order to use the OTAL-C(IR) you will need night vision.
