  The third generation DBAL-A3 (Dual Beam Aiming LASER) is equipped with an Infrared Pointer, an Infrared Pointer/Illuminator and a Green Ultra Powerpoint visible pointer, which is 5 times more visible than traditional Red LASER’s. The DBAL-A3  allows you to sight in the Visible LASER and Co-Aligns the IR LASER. The DBAL-A3 also has the illuminator. In contrast, the DBAL-I2 does not offer the Dual Beam Co-Alignment. You will need to sight in your IR LASER with Night Vision and your Visible LASER separately. Also, there is no illuminator on the DBAL-I2.

     The DBAL-A3 provides the same overall functionality as its predecessor, the DBAL-A2, but with enhancements that include dual remote cable ports that incorporate a tactical light by plugging the supplied Y-cable into both the light and the visible override port on the back of the laser housing. Pressing the Y-cable pressure pad will simultaneously activate the tactical and the visible laser. The second pressure pad, plugged into the standard port, will activate the infrared laser functions. This unique feature allows for immediate transition from low light to daylight operations by simply choosing which pressure pad to activate.


Designed to meet MIL-STD-810G requirements for extreme environmental conditions, the DBAL-A3 provides users with the utmost advantage in ever-changing battlefield conditions.

This lightweight, waterproof unit is equipped with a Green Ultra Power Point LASER which is designed for maximum daytime visibility and clear, crisp visibility at night. The Green LASER offers faster target acquisition and is 5 times more visible than traditional Red LASER’s. A third option involves an Infrared pointer, which meets MIL-STD-810G for reliability under harsh environmental conditions.

Features an adjustable IR illuminator for better illumination at longer ranges, dual activation switches and high/low power modes. The DBAL-A3 class 1/3R Civilian, based on the standard issue DBAL-A3 for U.S. war fighters, brings the latest advances in IR and LASER technology to the civilian market with its dual beam reliability for extreme accuracy in low- and no-light maneuvers. In addition, the DBAL-A3 is the first to feature new de-focused adjustable IR illumination technology to enable both mid-range and close quarter target acquisition.

Manufactured in the USA using the finest quality materials, with a 3 Year Warranty.
