It is a fast assessment of the Olight Baldr Professional R rechargeable mild with a inexperienced laser. The Baldr Professional R has a flashlight with a 1,350-lumen output and 5 milliwatt (5mW) class llla inexperienced laser positioned inside the flashlight’s reflector. I needed a lightweight for my dwelling protection shotgun to switch a Surefire® mild with a fragile plastic latch that continuously failed. I consider the sunshine failed as a result of mild’s incapacity to deal with the shotgun’s recoil.
A compact mild with a laser gave the impression to be simply the trick and the Olight Baldr Professional R match my necessities. The Baldr Professional has a selector which provides you the power to modify between white mild solely, inexperienced laser solely, or each white mild and inexperienced laser. The Baldr Professional is rechargeable and has an inner battery charged through a magnetic charging port. This port additionally accepts a distant strain swap which attaches to the magnetic port (the image beneath is the sunshine put in on my Beretta 1301).
Recharging the sunshine is easy. Merely take it off the Picatinny rail (it additionally works with Glock rails) and plug the (included) USB recharging wire right into a charging system (not included). You could possibly additionally cost the sunshine whereas mounted on the gun though this may not be as handy. The small LEDs flip inexperienced when the battery is totally charged. I at all times exchange the sunshine in the identical place on the rail and have had no issues with the laser’s zero wandering.
The Baldr Professional has held up very nicely up to now. I’ve fired over 300 rounds of buckshot and slugs with the sunshine connected to my dwelling protection shotgun with none issues.
I zeroed the laser at twenty 5 yards with the Federal LE-132 low recoil slug—placing 4 of 5 pictures in a five-inch circle (image beneath left). This zero gave me the identical level of affect for Federal LE-133 8-pellet buckshot at twenty yards (image beneath proper – 5 pictures of Federal LE-133).
I nonetheless had some slugs (I hate partial packing containers) so I completed the session taking pictures 4 Federal slugs at a 10×12 inch plate 65 yards away. 4 hits for 4 pictures (see image beneath and video here).
