Steiner DBAL-D2 Green Aiming Laser
Steiner DBAL-D2 Green Aiming Laser
The Steiner DBAL-D2 is a multi-function Class 1 Infrared Laser, making it Eye-Safe and accessible for all. Exceeding FDA regulations with a 0.7mW rating, it offers targeting up to 450 yards and is well-suited for night shooting or training. Mounted on the user's weapon, this laser is critical in aiding head-mounted night vision goggles with a maximum identify range of 100-115 yards. Offering an ideal solution, the DBAL-D2 is the perfect Class 1 laser.
The DBAL-D2 is a civilian-legal AN/PEQ-15A, featuring a Class IIIa visible laser (in red or green) and a Class 1 Infrared laser pointer. The integral LED IR illuminator, complete with high/low settings, further sets it apart from the legacy LDI lasers. At high power, it runs at 600mW, enabling illumination out to 800 yards (750 useable). The eye-safe LED won't overwhelm the 0.7mW laser, ensuring clear and precise aiming even under dim conditions. Nevertheless, note that when close to walls, the illuminator's high power may reflect and wash out the lower-powered laser, and so the low setting is recommended. The illuminator beam can also be focused from 30° (short-throw) to 2° (long-throw).
The DBAL-D2 offers the same performance benefits as earlier models. The Class 1 Infrared laser has a range up to 450 yards, while the visible green laser is the same. The DBAL-D2 has an added advantage, however, that both lasers are synchronized, which simplifies the zeroing process.
The DBAL-D2 has a robust aircraft-grade aluminum housing, making it just as durable as Steiner's military lasers. Despite a slightly bigger size due to the LED illuminator, the DBAL-D2 is approximately the same size as an AN/PEQ-16B. It is highly resilient and well-crafted, as the weight and physical properties of the laser will demonstrate. Additionally, the D2 has the same great HT Self-Adjusting Throw-Lever mount that can fit most rails.
The Steiner DBAL-D2 is a paradigm of development in the civilian night vision market. Their customers are consulted in the design of their products, and the result of their feedback is clear - the inclusion of an infrared illuminator. This allows the shooter to save space by consolidating their gear, and the quality of the illuminator is particularly noteworthy. However, take note: the illuminator is LED-based, so it carries a visible red light that can be spotted from over 100 yards if viewed within a 2° angle. This is a very limited field of view, but an important issue for militaries and professionals.
The compact and durable DBAL-D2 (Dual Beam Aiming Laser with IR LED Illuminator) is an adapted commercial rendition of its predecessor, the DBAL-A2. This device offers a Class 1, Eye-Safe IR Pointer as well as a Red or Green Visible Pointer. Through the Eye-Safe IR LED Illuminator, the DBAL-D2 enables users to safely direct illumination up to 1000 meters. It can be hand-held or attached to any MIL-STD-1913/Picatinny rail with its self-adjusting quick release HT mount.
