Q: Are lasers allowed in airsoft?
A: Rules will vary from field to field. Check with your local field admins for clarification.
Q: What are lasers used for?
A: Lasers are used to assist in aiming by shining a dot on the target instead of you having to line up your iron sights. The beams can go pretty far and are easily seen in low/no light situations but in broad daylight they are not so effective.
Q: Is it useful in airsoft?
A: Yes and no. Its benefits for faster aiming are there and one could argue it does help, however lasers must be used responsibly if they are allowed to be used at all.
Q: What do you mean responsibly?
A: Lasers should not be shined directly in the eyes of another living being (people/animals) and should not be shined into the sky for safety sake (for air traffic). Misusing lasers can easily lead to harm and can easily be punished by the full extent of the law.
Q: Can you adjust these lasers? How do you do that?
A: Airsoft grade lasers may or may not come with the ability to adjust. For airsoft lasers that are just for show, your laser will not be able to be adjusted to match your aim. But it looks cool! Now for lasers with some adjustment built in, you'll usually have to turn a screw to adjust windage and one for elevation. Most of the time we have found these adjustments to be lacking though so we'd rather break it down and be honest with you and say the airsoft laser is more or less just for show.
Q: What color is better? Red or green?
A: If you are using this in a bright area or in daylight, neither will be easy to see to be honest. In dark places or in CQB both colors are very easy to see.
Q: What's with the lights and laser combo?
A: Some units have multiple functions built in like a light AND laser built in. This is just a cool extra feature you have all in one package.
Q: How do I use this on my pistol or rifle?
A: Your typical laser will mount using a picatinny style rail attachment. So for you to use it on a pistol or rifle, your gun should be equipped similarly with a rail. Just remember that for the pistol, mounting an attachment to it will affect your holster options so it's best to go with a soft universal holster or a custom one that matches your gun and attachments.
Q: How long do lasers last?
A: Every maker is different and uses different size batteries compared to one another. Unfortunately there isn't a solid answer based on the information given to us from the manufacturers at this point.
Q: What is the range of these lasers
A: Generally speaking, these lasers shine out pretty far. Though the further out you shine the laser, the more "bloom" you will get, which is the dot getting larger at further distances and more distorted.
