For: VFC PEQ15 Illuminator Laser & LED Light Combo (Dark Earth)Product Information:
My team uses this product, as well as other related devices. I personally use a Sightmark Lopro Green Laser Designator in place of an ATPIAL/PEQ, seeing as it's main purpose is visible laser usage (probably 95% of the time, unless NODs are utilized). I have used real AN/PEQ-15's, and as far as looks go, it's close. Very close. This is without question the best quality AN/PEQ-15 replica I've seen on the market, and is a pretty close competitor to the G&P replica PEQ-2 for the best overall ATPIAL device replica on the Airsoft Market in our opinions. It's functions are usable, and is a great addition to a rifle to add an element of realism for MILSIM. It is among the best out of the group of similar devices that we use.
Appearance is very accurate.
Solid in construction.
Works well in conjunction with both the VFC (and other) replica M3X flashlights, and other flashlights, with the appropriate dual switch.
Functions work well;
Navigation light is just that - DO NOT expect it to function as a tactical flashlight for other purposes.
Laser is adequate - but not nearly as effective as our devices from Laserlyte, or even Sightmark, let alone our higher price bracket equipment.
Laser windage and elevation is very hit or miss. I've seen it vary from unit to unit.
$120 price tag is a bit extreme. We purchased ours for $100, and I find that to be a fair price for the unit.
The rail clasp is in fact the same heavy duty polymer, and not metal. This SHOULD NOT necessarily be a "Con," but I know how the "kids" are.
VFC does not manufacturer a Dual Switch, although they manufacture an M3X and PEQ-15. Element, or in the case of Surefire style lights, Night Evolution are appropriate stand-ins.
I feel that the appropriate stickers should be correctly placed at factory. My personal opinion, and a pet peeve.
