..laser only, no light for pistol..
« on: February 11, 2018, 02:25:00 PM »
.
have a Streamlight TLR which I've mounted on my AR but now looking for something for my FN 5.7 pistol

don't really want anything too expensive (as is the Streamlight) - something under $100 would work and would like a laser only, no light

any recommendations ?

I've found this brand https://iprotec.com/c/Rail-Mount/5 at Academy and have both the laser and laser/light combos. Usually around $40 for the laser and $75 for the combo.
I've also ordered some here https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=laser+firearms through my wife's Prime account. Nothing fancy, much cheaper and they work.

thanks Pat - ordered an ADE off of Amazon - $30+ - will see if it's any good (or something for the parts box)

using the 5.7 for nightstand duty (backed up with the AR and it's binary trigger leaning against the wall)

when are we gonna go shoot ?

End of the month or beginning of next month. No Monday's correct.

Mondays are good - 1/2 price on Mondays = $10 per hour (vs $20) but anytime is good

patience is not a virtue that I possess - tired of waiting for amazon to ship an "in stock" Laser Sight that I ordered so bought one from our local Academy

paid a little more than I wanted to, but like I said.....

all mounted and somewhat adjusted - now to take it (my FN 5.7/IPro Red Laser) to the range and fine tune it

I have found that Amazon is hit and miss on firearm accessories. I think "in stock" can also mean that their contract distributors, not necessarily the Amazon warehouse, has them on the shelf. I ordered a Hogue monogrip for my new Ruger with Amazon last Sunday. Delivery is expected sometime before the 21st. Can't complain about the free shipping though.

finally got this (very) little red Laser - if it holds up it's gonna be a nifty addition - and really inexpensive - got the more expensive one, the iProtech Q series, on my 5.7 and have put this on the Wife's G19.....now, need to take both to the range and sight 'em in
