When you rely on something to aim your rifle effectively, you want something good. This is no exception when you’re running night vision. The lasers by L3/Insight have been the technology trusted by our nation’s special operations for decades. The ATPIAL series of lasers are currently issued to a large number of people and can be found on the weapons of our allies.

We personally like the ATPIAL laser for a number of reasons. It’s lightweight, easy to zero, sits low on the rail to clear optics, has slaved IR/vis lasers making zeroing possible in the day, and has good compatibility with accessories on the market.

The ATPIAL-C is the civilian class version of the traditional PEQ15. The FDA regulates higher powered lasers for direct MIL/LE sale only. With that said, it is LEGAL to own a high-powered ATPIAL or similar laser. They just can’t be sold commercially to a non MIL/LE user. High-powered lasers sold to either of these entities generally need an official quote with dept/unit letterhead. Not individual purchases.

The ATPIAL-C is eye-safe with its 0.7mw laser. It can reach out to 450 yards under good evening conditions. Since most night vision isn’t even good enough to properly target identify past 100 yards, the range of a civilian class laser is ample.

The IR illuminator on the ATPIALc is non-adjustable and has a max effective range of 150 yards. It produces a circle of IR light around the laser. At close ranges it creates an effect similar to an EOTech sight. Massive aiming area with a refined center dot for precision.

The ATPIAL-C is mounted via M1913 Picatinny rail. Due to its design, it sits lower on the rail than most other lasers on the market.
The ATPIAL-C includes a single battery and the default Insight pressure pad pictured.

The ATPIAL-C is activated by pushing the button on the top, or connecting the provided pressure pad to the rear of the unit. The pressure pad can then be placed on the carbine where the user desires. Surefire dual pressure pads are also compatible with the ATPIAL/PEQ series of lasers. This is our favorite solution for activating the laser.
