LA-5 / PEQ-15 (ELEMENT)

Recommended Posts

Out of curosity is the jack size for this the same as a real PEQ? Interested in one of the surefire dual switches for a Scoutlight and PEQ (the one that clips onto the rail) and it'd be nice if I didn't have to mod it. I know Element do a dual switch as seen in this thread but its not the slim profile one I want (will try and find the model number).

Ummm. Mine bottoms out way before it gets to where I want it for left / right... /_\ also on a GHK it occasionally turns itself off and I have to re-click the button, weirdly not when I'm shooting it, and it looks like even the the laser is pointing in the wrong place, it holds up okay. Will have to open it up and see if there's anything I could do with the zero issue.

Any updates on your PEQ blobface? Looks like I'll have my first GBBR rifle in a few weeks and I'm curious as to whether its worth buying one of these for it or not.

These aren't bad, I've opened it up and managed to nudget it around to make it zero to where I want, I'm not convinced that it will hold under strong recoil so I'll probably try to reinforce it a little, but it's easy to disassemble and easy to "understand", for the price and the features (if you care for IR and the fact that it's this model), it's a pretty good choice.

Cheers. It is a very nicely priced unit and I'd rather a LA-5 than an AN PEQ. I'm not too fussed about the IR laser as there's some concern it could cause some damage to eyes as there's no blink reflex.

 

However the flashlight would definitely be swapped to an IR LED for when I do sort out NV. I assume night vision will pick up the visible laser no problem?

 

Really hope it stands up to recoil though as I'm even looking at losing my AEGs and moving to TM recoils and GBB.

From what I remember they're a Korean company producing some harder to find parts. They did a replica of the glass breaker for 416 suppressors and the "correct" Devgru sling plate for the 416.

 

What's annoying is I can't seem to find their actual site address on my phone.

They don't really have a site, but Toysoldier sells their stuff in small batches. The momentary switch is a big improvement.

Anyone had luck fitting an IR illuminator in place of the standard LED?

 

Now I've got some basic night vision sorted its next on my list.

For what it's worth, the clamp mechanism of mine has snapped off, the metal parts, instead of being one solid casted piece, is actually glued together, I managed to break it by turning it hard on the rail, by hand... lol I'm sure I can glue it back on / maybe even drill some small holes to secure it by threading and screwing, but... man.

That feels a bit lame.

 

But it does seem to be the best replica LA-5 out there. And the real ones would be a fortune if I could even find one. And then I'd probably end up blinding some poor person.

PART TWO of the review , for the INSIGHT LA-5 from Element

 

De real INSIGHT LA-5C UHP is de Ultra High Power, version of this ATPIAL, he has more powerfull lasers, and IR illuminator

The external differences are just a question of details.

So recently Element , upgraded theire older LA-5/PEQ  to the LA-5C UHP version.

Unfortunately the differences are just external details so far ( i wil illustrate bellow)

 

Ik say "so far" because according to some inside information , that Element is finaly working on a Green laser version, and als o a more powerfull LED torch. !

 

If you want to read the complete review & description,  scroll tot the first page of this topic, because there both identical exept folowing details.

Here a more detailed pic. of the red rubber silicone o-ring for better UV-resistance

The LA-5C still comes in the Tupperware box, complete with manual, stickerset, velcropad, and a remoteswitch.

If only they did them with an IR illuminator instead of a visible one. Already have a Scout light for visible light but would love IR illumination. Unfortunately it doesn't look like an easy swap either as it isn't a standard LED.

I can confirm that without modification there wasn't enough adjustment on the one I bought to zero either the red or IR lasers.  

 

I'll be opening it up at some point to try and shim out the 'laser carrier' inside for more adjustment but it shouldn't have to be done.

Finaly the Element LA-5 UHP is available in the green-laser version.

Also the flashlight should be more powerful according to Element
