Review: Kinetic Concealment KC Mini-Green Dot Laser Sight

MG-01-2

Kinetic Concealment started out as a holster company making the now familiar kydex/leather combo holsters in OWB and IWB configurations. We’ve tested these holsters and found them to be well made and comfortable.

In recent months Kinetic has expanded their product offerings to include among other things green laser sights for use on railed handguns as well as rifles with rail systems. The new laser sight is the KC Mini. The mini has a small picatinny rail built into the bottom of the unit. It runs on one C123 battery. Activation is by ambidextrous button switches as well as a plugin pressure switch primarily for rifles or perhaps AR15 pistols. The body is made of aluminum with windage and elevation adjustment fittings.

Description:
The Kinetic Concealment Mini-Green Dot
Sight is the perfect compliment to any handgun or AR that contains a
front rail system. The Mini-Green Dot works with both full size and
compact handguns and fits on any Mil-Spec rail system. The sight can
be operated with the ambidextrous on/off push button switch or grip
pressure switch (included).
Warranty: One Year
Battery: CR123 Lithium Battery Included
MSRP is $79.95

The sight has three settings which are constant on, strobe and off. The power of this small laser is about equal to any other green laser sight. I’ve checked it at night and found it will project a strong beam several blocks away.

This sight is also a bargain at the $79.95 retail price. Of course street prices will be lower. I don’t know the country of origin but I would assume it’s made in China or other asian country. While we have an almost constant discussion of the pros and cons of Chinese made products this sight seems a step above the norm in having an aluminum case with anodized coating and water resistant seals.

In my testing over several days of use I found it to be reliable and plenty bright as well as easily adjustable. As far as battery life I left the laser on for 56 hours straight and the beam was still as bright as ever. For those on a budget or those who just see no sense in spending several hundred dollars on a laser sight this might be a micro sight you would want to check out.

    It’s not very mini…

  • Wingbert

    I like the rail on the bottom, you can use it to stack multiple laser sights.

    • Sianmink

      or piggyback your bipod or bayonet mount!

  • TDog

    I dunno… I was hoping it would have more rails. Nothing says “concealed” like rails! 😀

    • Take a look at our comment above. Rails will be removed.

      • TDog

        NOOOO!

  • Street price will most likely be $10–$15 less

  • The next one with a light and laser will be $89

  • Hi guys, we are actually doing PR for Kinetic Concealment. Just today we received the drawings for the MG-01 minus the rail at the bottom. KC agrees, that the rail is a feature that is not really needed, and it also makes IWB holster manufacturing more difficult. So, I wanted to post this CAD drawing of the MG-01 minus the rail. All new shipments as of Feb. 1 will not include the rail.

    I do want to add that Kinetic Concealment has done a lot of testing on these products. Well, over a years worth. The goal with these is to be a solid performer at a low price-point. They do come with a full one year replacement warranty. Hope this helps add something interesting.

    Thank you Phil for reviewing the product. Look forward to seeing the review on the Laser Light Combo!

    The first picture doesn’t look like the laser is seated properly. Looks like it’s angled very slightly up.

  • Now——

  • Stan Darsh

    Is this actually made by Kinetic Concealment or is it another one of the re-branded chinese models like the Vector SCGL-06?

  • Sianmink

    Someone finally figures out that laser-over-battery puts your dot much closer to the boreline than battery-over-laser.

    Now someone needs to figure out the same thing with a light+laser combo.
