I have for years
been a proponent of laser sights, by that I mean good
quality laser sights, on defensive handguns. A defensive handgun
is carried for protection from the evil in this world, and the
doers of evil usually apply their trade under the cover of
darkness. A good laser sight helps a shooter to better place his
shots in poor lighting conditions. In the dark, pistol sights
are hard or impossible to see, and with a laser sight, the
shooter can concentrate his attention upon the target. I have a
laser sight on every one of my handguns that I carry for
protection. Like the other components of your fighting handgun,
the laser must be reliable and durable. There is a lot of junk
on the market that is to be avoided, but a good quality laser
can be a valuable asset.
Many people often carry the small revolvers
from North American Arms, Charter
Arms, or the discontinued Freedom Arms mini-guns for protection
when nothing larger can be comfortably concealed, or as a backup
to a larger weapon. These little five-shot rimfire revolvers are
very compact and easy to hide. The power is pretty much limited
to the five rounds of .22 Long Rifle or .22 magnum ammo
contained within the cylinder, as there is no fast reload for
these little guns. Therefore, every shot has to count. These
little guns are usually considered to be an arms-length
proposition; the revolvers have the mechanical accuracy to be of
use at greater distances, but the short sight radius and
miniscule sights make it hard to use that potential accuracy. At
the range, in good light, I can easily keep a cylinder full of
ammo on a human silhouette target at twenty-five yards, but
under stress in the dark, no way. The sights are just too hard
Now, LaserLyte has come up with a solution.
They developed a small, lightweight laser sight that attaches to
the top of the frame of the NAA mini-revolvers. The laser sight
weighs less than one-half ounce, is easy to activate, and
projects a red laser beam that is easy to see and use, allowing
for fast target acquisition and reliable hits at any reasonable
handgun combat distance.
Attached to the top of the frame, the toggle
switch points slightly upward. When cocking the hammer, the
thumb naturally turns on the laser in one motion, making the
laser sight very quick to activate. In the dark, the laser is
easy to see out past 100 yards. In bright daylight, the range is
limited to just a few yards.
The LaserLyte laser sight for the NAA Minis
adds several yards to the revolvers practical range, adds almost
no weight or bulk, and is very easy to operate. It is easy to
install, and easy to adjust to point-of-aim.
