Sightmark, known for their laser and sights is now making a laser and light combo inspired by the PEQ-15. Many that build an M4 clone want to put something that resembles the PEQ-15 and not have to spend the $2000 for an actual PEQ-15, and unless you are military or law enforcement, you are forced to by used. Those looking for the low profile laser design laser that can be put directly on the top rail, and not interfere for optics will benefit from this design.
Although lacking the IR laser and illuminator, it features a white light and green laser. The light is a 220 lumen LED, which will light up a room without any problems. The one positive to a green laser is the ability to use it during the day, and not lose the dot light some red lasers can suffer from. The laser and light can both be operated via a push button or an optional pressure switch. So those looking to make an M4 clone, this looks to be a good option for a laser/light that resembles a military version, without breaking the bank. The LoPro system will be $179.99 and is available now on the Sightmark website.

Inspired by military designs, the Sightmark® LoPro Combo delivers optimal precision accuracy and versatility. This multi-functional laser and flashlight device can be mounted on a picatinny or weaver rail of an AR-15, either in front of a riflescope without interference with field-of-view, or on the side of the quad rail. Its 220 lumen LED flashlight can be used for clearing a room or quickly spotting targets in pitch black darkness, and the laser is offset for clearing front sight post.
The LoPro Combo is equipped with push button and pressure pad operation, simplifying use and allowing the operator to quickly place the light where needed. Featuring 1-inch MOA click adjustments, the hand adjustable windage and elevation turrets permit the user to zero in the laser dot for close-range shooting. Laser visibility ranges from 50 yards in the daytime to 600 yards at night.
Constructed of high performance thermoplastic, the LoPro Combo yields a weather resistance rating of IPX6, making it exceptionally reliable in a wide range of harsh climates. Built for durability in tactical scenarios, the unit is also resistant to 1,000G’s of maximum recoil.
