Designed as an invaluable tactical tool for covert and night operations, Steiner Optics' DBAL-I2 Infrared Aiming Laser with IR LED Illuminator is a durable yet compact device that combines an infrared aiming laser with a powerful IR illuminator. Its 850nm infrared laser is visible with NVDs up to 273 yards away, and its illuminator beam is adjustable from a tight 2° spot for target designation, or it can be opened up to 30° to flood a large area to make staging or navigation easier using NVDs.

A rear-facing rotary selector switch enables the operator to quickly choose the output - IR laser or IR illuminator - and intensity to suit the targeting task. The laser system runs on a single CR123A battery with a max runtime of about 3 hours. A quick-release Picatinny rail mount is integrated into the overall design to help reduce the form-factor to make this sight ideal for use on with virtually any rifle platform. The housing is made of the strong and lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum alloy with a matte black corrosion and scratch-resistant MIL-STD hard-anodized finish. Threaded mounting holes are machined into the top of the housing allowing for the easy addition of a short top rail for accessories such as larger IR illuminators or a reflex sight.

Best value IR laser/Illuminator - Get them while you can!

By Josiah

If you are in the market for your first IR aiming laser or one for a secondary setup, you should consider this unit. While there is no visible laser, the IR laser is very usable under NV and the IR illuminator has a very clean edge. The low power modes are great for indoor use and the high modes can easily allow you to see 100 yards and beyond. I was able to have the laser dimly paint objects out to 500 yards. Yes, it's not as bright as a full powered unit, but for the price it's hard to beat. Some people online complain about Steiner's build quality but I have had no issues with the caps or knobs a month later using this several times a week. Get these while you can, as I heard this unit may be discontinued from Steiner. B&H is the best place to get your optics and camera gear!

Good to go

Haven't had a chance to sight it in yet but performs above my expectations. Unity is solid and the qd mount locks up tight.

Great IR laser, illuminator is easy to adjust, laser was visible over 1k away on a far mountainside. If someone tells you this thing is under powered, they either have low quality tubes or don't know how to properly use a laser/illuminator.

This laser is great, does everything I need it to, illuminator is easy to adjust, laser was visible over 1k away on a far mountainside. Anyone that tells you it is underpower

Definitely an upgrade from my OTAL-C, but the illuminator...

The laser is bright and easy to see out to typical ranges. 7mw is plenty bright at high and actually blooms a bit. I can see using the low setting for most hog hunting. That said, the illuminator is a bit underwhelming. Even on high it's not as bright as my old KM3 flashlight head with weak batteries. I do like the ability to narrow the illuminator beam. Overall, this is a great product and is worth the price if you can catch it on sale for around the $700 range as of mid year 2021.

Fast shipping! Great product!

As advertised. After a lot of research I knew I wanted a DBAL I2 but there was a lot of places that were overpriced or out of stock online. B&H was IN STOCK AND HAD THE BEST PRICE! DBAL works great and even with all these shipping delays going on this thing came in a couple days! Great job B&H. You will be getting a return customer for sure.
