1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    There probably are some available but I've not seen any and the various laser regulations (maximum power allowed) would restrict the brightness etc when used as a torch. Probably your best bet, if you haven't already done it, is to fit an aspheric lens with a black relector to your 501b which will concentrate the beam and give greater brightness and more range at the expense of beam width.
    The next step is a torch upgrade.

    hello, i tried a green laser some years ago for night shooting but i did not find it worked ok so thought a red would be better as my thread suggests.

    Check out nite-tek t-20 torches, I absolutely love mine, fully adjustable and there's 3 brightness stages,

    I had a quick play in the fields behind my house and I got a beautifully clear image out to 100 yards on full brightness and tight in focused and then it would have been ideal for closer range with it opened up a bit on the medium setting.
    Change brightness by lightly tapping the on off switch to cycle through.

    Might be worth a look in, it was certainly brighter than the 501b torch I was using but I hadn't upgraded that at all as it sounds you have with the aspheric lens etc.

    The aspheric lens/black reflector is the best upgrade for the 501/502 series of torches, you can also fit a better led to them or certainly better than the ones fitted to most of the ebay torches. If you're using 2xCR123a cells it's a bit more fiddly as you would need a driver for 7.2 volts and most of the ones used in mods are for a single 19650 at 3.7 volts.
    The torches I supply are similar in performance to the T20 as they use the same modified electronics and the lens is the same sixe but mine use a sliding head to zoom. These will appear to be a good deal brighter than the 501b and can also be supplied with the 3 power setting driver. They put out plenty of light to cover from close range ratting out to 22lr rimfire rabbits and normally run off a single 18650 cell although some can use the 26650 as well for extra run time.
    If you're not getting enough light out of the 501b I don't think you'll find a laser which will do the job so it will probably mean you need to go for the larger torch.
