This DBAL model offers two different lasers- one is an INFRARED laser visible only through night vision devices, this is what you use for aiming with your night vision device.
The second laser is a visible laser, in this listing a green colored visible laser. This is what you could use for sighting during daytime.
THEY DO NOT OPERATE AT THE SAME TIME! In other words, if you have the switch set to IR laser, you will NOT also see the visible green laser. This is a common question from people not familiar with these devices.
Why an Infrared laser?
Everyone wants to weapons mount the PVS14 on a rifle. While there can be some advantages to that, there are some serious disadvantages.
1. Whenever an NV is weapons mounted, the weapon has to be brought up to the shoulder to get a "look" around with the night vision. It's cool in the movies where the Seals are patrolling and everyone has their rifle shouldered.... But in the real world few people have the arm strength to go around like that for a long period of time.
2. When an NV is weapons mounted and you are working with others, i.e, in a team tactics type environment- when you need to get a "look" around with the NV, the weapon has to be brought up to the shoulder and then you have to swing the weapon (and your body) around to get a look. In a team tactics type environment you could end up muzzle sweeping your team while doing this. Not exactly conducive to trust and teamwork being swept all the time....
3. God designed you to "look" around by moving your head, not your whole body. With the Night vision head or helmet mounted you can have a more natural and normal "look" around by turning your head, keep the rifle in a safe direction thereby not "sweeping" your team. Then when a target it spotted, the rifle can be brought up, the touch pad on the laser touched and the shot fired.
4. Shooting from a less than perfect shoulder pocket position is easier when the NV is mounted on the head or helmet mounted and the laser used. Quicker for close- in work.
Also, when working with a team wherein most or all are using NV, you can develop "codes" using the IR laser to mark targets, mark areas to investigate or move to, even short morse code type messages can be exchanged with the IR laser and nothing is visible to the naked eye.
