This is a pretty nice laser/light for the money. I had also purchased (through a mistake of the USPS who lost the shipment) one of the other chinese one's that looks like this but doesn't have the 'ringed' look on the light cap.
The chinese laser/light is loose even when tightened down. I have zero confidence it would stay on. The Barska however is much more solid. If you DO have a problem with tightening down the Barska, just get a small piece of cardboard or something, and use that as a shim. It's what I did with the none-Barska laser.
Again, I'm talking about TWO different products, and this Barska is much better manufactured than the other chinese one you will find here selling under about 10 different names. The Barska is a well-put-together product and you can tell just from the difference in the on-off button. On the Chinese laser/light it's a flimsy thing, while on the Barska it's a solid feeling switch.
Is this as good as those selling for 300 bucks? I doubt it, but I don't know because I'm never going to spend that kind of money on a laser/light. For the money I spent, this is on a Walther PPX 9mm, and after 40 or so rounds, I haven't had any issues. I used a 9mm laser bore to zero the laser, w/o shooting and it worked pretty well.
One caveat. I would buy some loctite and make sure all the screws are tightened down. The laser bulb got loose after a few rounds, and I noticed this in time. I should have checked all of the threads before I started shooting. Some loctite solved that problem quickly.
Oh yeah. The directions. They're horrible as usual from something imported. To insert the batteries, there is a screw on the opposite end of the bulb, next to the on/off switch. Carefully unscrew this and insert the batteries. And make sure you turn the thing off (with the on-off button!) when you're not using it. I've had mine for a couple of weeks now, and the battery's still strong, but then I make sure it's off when I'm not using it. You can be fooled, because there is a knob for no light/no laser...both light and laser...light only...laser only. So you CAN leave the on-off switch on, but turn the knob to the no light/no laser and it will still leak battery power.
The laser is excellent. Much better than the other Chinese laser/light I purchased. And the light, well, I wouldn't want someone pointing that light at ME! It hurts your eyes if you try to look directly into it. All in all, a great deal, IMO. Just remember to loctite the threads before shooting!
Good flashlight/laser combo. Have this mounted on my Octane air rifle. Flashlight is bright enough to illuminate your pathway at night. Laser has so far retained zero, which is the reason I wanted it. Have tried a few UTG lasers and for whatever reason they will not hold zero. Instead of using scope, I can use laser to target what I need to hit.
This is strongest and brightest lasers around I have tried, Great packaging and accessories.
