Review this product
16 January 2009  

Things I liked: works well, price
Things I would have changed: make the cabling more robust - I've had problems with intermittent connections between the remote switch and the flashlight - some kind of strain relief is required to make this truly reliable.
What others should know: The unit was fairly easy to install and align.

Things I liked: The laser is bright and easy to adjust, the flashlight is bright for its size, both are very compact. Mounting is easy. The included remote activation switches are very cool for varmint hunting.
Things I would have changed: The flashlight pattern is not very consistant (circular) and requires some fiddling with for proper aiming. The bulb on the light is soldered into the reflector and hard if not impossible to change the bulb itself. The replacement from BSA is the assembly together and not too cheap.
What others should know: Reliability seems to be good so far after a couple months usage. Laser slipped out of alignment once so far, easily corrected and stable so far.

Things I liked: The lazer was easy to adjust.
Things I would have changed: Include an option for purchasing the lazer and mount only. I have no need for the flashlight.
What others should know: The button on the lazer broke with the first touch. I am using the ext cord/button so it really didn't matter. I left out the flash light and only used the lazer and mounted it on the flash light that came with a Nightstalker rifle. The flashlight supplied with the lazer is not very bright, but it will work for general purpose.

Things I liked: The kit overall is good.
Things I would have changed: The instructions sheet should note that the slotted screw opposite of the set screws on the laser should not be snugged tight until after you have made all of your adjustments with the set screws, otherwise you can strip the set screw threads while trying trying to adjust the laser.
What others should know: I too had an issue with the laser not staying true and it's a common problem when using this setup with springers. The solution to change the mount position so the laser sits directly above your scope so that it's centered with your receiver worked very well but the light did illuminate the gun barrel which then reflected back into the scope when shooting at night. You may want to experiment with different mounting positions. I did not have good luck applying the blue loctite to the set screws as was suggested as the threads in one of the set screws stripped very easily while trying to adjust the lasor after the loctite had dried for 24 hours. Instead of using the loctite, I would make all of the set screw adjustments first and then make sure that the slotted screw opposite of the set screws is well snugged which will then anchor your settings. After each shooting session, keep that slotted screw snugged and your settings should hold.

Things I liked: The mount.
Things I would have changed: For the price, nothing...
What others should know: I too had an issue with the laser not staying true and it's a common problem when using this setup with springers. I found a simple solution that's working for others as well. First, change the mount position so the laser sits directly above your scope so it's centered with your receiver. Make sure you have access to the windage/elevation screws before clamping it in. Next, remove the little set screws, clean them and apply some blue loctite to them. Install them, let them cure for 24 hours, then make your sight-in adjustments. The loctite helps add friction to the screws so the laser stays true much longer. Also, make sure the slotted screw opposite of the set screws is well snugged. I've gone hundreds of rounds before having to re-adjust it again, and it's very minimal at that which is a huge improvement from before I added the loctite.
