The OGL or ‘On Gun Laser’ is a fairly compact (at round 3.5 inches lengthy and a pair of inches huge) and helpful multifunctional aiming laser, with a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) infrared illuminator together with an infrared laser designator and visual laser – all impressively powered by a CR123 battery. The OGL weighs 7 ounces with the battery and shall be obtainable in FDE and gray.
Right here’s how EOTECH describe the OGL:
The brand new EOTECH On-Gun Laser (OGL) is obtainable in a typical energy (MIL/LE) mannequin. Powered by a single CR123 lithium battery, the OGL provides as much as 9 hours of steady run time. The all aluminum housing provides excessive durabilty and its compact measurement is much like a typical deck of taking part in playing cards. The IR and Seen lasers are optically aligned so zeroing is easy and straightforward. The OGL has a singular sliding lever that controls the beam divergence of the IR illuminator, making changes from spot to flood quick and straightforward, even underneath strain.
- Normal energy (MIL/LE) mode
- All aluminum housing for excessive sturdiness
- Comparable in measurement to a deck of playing cards
- Enhanced ergonomics
- Shared optical bench for seen inexperienced and IR aiming lasers
- Illuminator variable beam divergence: ~5 mRAD to ~115 mRAD
- 0.2 mRAD windage and elevation changes, 50 mRAD whole
- Crane Normal PTT receptacle
- Modlite ModButton Lite 7″ change included
- Tethered protecting caps/sample mills
EOTECH are at the moment engaged on making closing refinements and dealing the OGL by means of the US Meals and Drug Administration’s laser necessities. It’s anticipated that the ‘normal energy’ model (as EOTECH consult with it) shall be obtainable to legislation enforcement businesses in This fall of this yr after which a commercially tailored model, which may have a much less highly effective laser, shall be prepared for the general public in 2024. EOTECH haven’t finalised a value for the civilian model but, however the ‘normal energy’ model for the army/legislation enforcement market is priced at round $2,200
