I like LaserLyte. Well-built products. Excellent customer service. The marketing department has a bit of a caps lock complex, but overall they’re a great company. Quite why they decided to design and manufacture an on-board laser for North American Arms‘ Black Widow and Mini Master Pistols is beyond me. Because they can? Money? The idea that an armed self-defender needs a laser sight on an “ultra-concealable” .22 magnum 4″ revolver would be funny if it wasn’t so laughable. OK, sure, nothing beats a laser for perfecting trigger control (save randomly loaded snap caps). And I almost buy that bit about “firing from unconventional positions.” But c’mon. If ever there was a gun made for point-and-shoot-and-scoot, it’s a NA revolver. Question: how long before LaserLyte tackles the burgeoning .9mm market? VENOMOUS press release after the jump . . .
COTTONWOOD, AZ (August 2012) – LaserLyte®, known for the smallest pistol lasers on the market today, introduce the VENOM laser for the Black Widow Pistol and the Mini Master by North American Arms. The ultra-concealable .22 Mag NAA pistols are now even more formidable with the addition of the just-over-half-an-ounce programmable laser.
The VENOM quickly and easily mounts by simply twisting out the existing cylinder pin and twist in the new LaserLyte integrated laser and cylinder pin configuration. The VENOM integrated laser holds the tiny 4×377 batteries, the switch and laser all in one compact package (less than two inches). The VENOM adds very little bulk to the gun, yet provides the user with the gained confidence of aiming accuracy. No sighting in is required with the VENOM due to the fixed-point-of-aim provided at the LaserLyte factory.
The minuscule circuitry within the LaserLyte VENOM laser holds a programmable laser with: constant on, pulse mode and an auto-off after 6 minutes. The battery life is five hours* in constant on and ten hours* in the pulse mode.
