  • Are PAQ-4Cs rare or hard to get?

    What is the scoop on these? I have a line on a one and want to know more before I buy it.

    I use them at work so I am very familiar with their function.

    What else can you guys tell me?

    They are hard to get because they are government property. AFAIK, these are not sold on the civilian market, and rarely to LEO agencies (though there might be some).

    I welcome info to the contrary.

      So it would be best to go another route for an IR laser?

      I don't need my uncle who writes my paychecks getting mad at me for buying someting of his from someone who shouldn't have it.

        The problem is that while IR lasers are not illegal to own, they are regulated by the FDA (since they do not have a light or something to indicate they are turned on). Given that, and government "suggestions" most places will not sell IR lasers to non-LEO/MIL. is one place that does, and there's a guy on that will modify your current laser to be IR, but I don't have a link to that.

          That would be

          He sells Wolverine IR lasers. They are similar to Surefire, and you can use a Surefire pressure switch on them. They are pretty inexpensive too.
