B.E. Meyers has just announced two new laser devices. The DAGIR is an infrared illuminator and aiming laser for night vision shooting. Their other new product, the MILR (Miniature Intelligent Laser Rangefinder) incorporates rangefinding capabilities along with visible and IR aiming lasers.

Night Vision @ TFB:

B.E. Meyers DAGIR

The DAGIR utilizes a “Vertical-Cavity, Surface Emitting Laser” or VCSEL, for illumination. B.E. Meyers also uses this technology in the KIJI illuminator. The DAGIR will be available in black and FDE finishes. Look for it to hit the market fully in 2025.

The MILR combines all sorts of cutting-edge tech for computing firing solutions. Applied Ballistics and data from Bluetooth-connected devices like Kestrel weather meters combine with the ranging data from the MILR to put rounds on target easily. Like the DAGIR, the MILR will also be released fully in 2025 in both FDE and black.

From the manufacturer:

The DAGIR™ Multi-Platform Advanced Laser System is a weapon-mountable NIR illuminator and NIR + visible aiming device incorporating advanced VCSEL technology that allows for full manipulation of the system. Its optimized interface and proprietary Wakizashi™ port allow for quick and easy adjustment to suit rapidly changing environments.

To ensure a decisive advantage during night operations and increase survivability and lethality of the operator, a novel approach to range finding, infrared illumination, and targeting via a new fire control system was proposed by B.E. Meyers & Co. The MILR™ Miniature Intelligent Laser Rangefinder is a Class 3B/3R combination high-power infrared aiming and illumination device with visible pointer, as well as range-finding ballistic computer (via the Applied Ballistics™ integrated software) that can both provide holds on-screen for use with a day-optic or actively declinate the disturbed infrared aiming laser for ballistic compensation when using head-borne night vision devices.

    In a military context, I'd like to see the companies put more effort into the design in physical integration piece of their products. Some of these weapon mounted LRF's and other devices are of a reasonable sized/mass and make rifle profiles huge. All well and good laying on a range and posing for media but actually carrying or man packing these rifles with so much kit hanging off isn't as enabling as it should be. It won't be long before kit is getting broken or lost. Because of this some of the time LRF's aren't getting fitted to rifles and the n.o.2's run them on spotting scopes instead.

      @Evan Jay Sorry I should have been clearer, I was more alluding to the MILR and not the DAGIR. The DAGIR is largely a one for one swap with most current kit like the PEQ-15 on your general issue rifles with maybe a little more capability. MILR type devices are sometimes mounted in this way but normally on commanders weapons.
      I was getting more at the likes of the MILR and its contemporaries when mounted on DMR, AMR and sniper rifles (as seen in the recent article on here of the French Snipers). The only place they can really be mounted currently is on top of the primary optic or carried by a second party to mark and fed data.

    Continue to make overpriced products. They are mainly used by LE and the Military and should never be allowed to be used on US soil.
