There's a pretty decent market out there for weaponlights. There's a smaller market, but not that much smaller, for laser aiming devices. Combination units, with either a red or green laser and a weaponlight ranging from 50 to 300 lumens, are less-common but gaining ground.

TruGlo's new TruPoint Laser/Light Combo pairs a 200 lumen white light with a 520 nm green laser. It can be easily cycled through all three modes (light only, laser only and light with laser together) with a simply toggle switch—assuming you have the TruPoint mounted on a bottom accessory rail, the toggle switch in the "up" position will yield both light and laser; in the middle position it only activates the light and in the "down" position only the laser is powered.

The TruPoint features a quick-attach/detach mount with a lever that tightens/loosens the unit on an accessory rail. While the TruPoint is small enough to fit on a full-size handgun, it does add substantial weight (5.5 ounces) to a pistol. Attached to a carbine, rifle or shotgun, however, the additional weight would hardly be noticed.

Activation of the light is achieved one of several ways. A lever on the back of the TruPoint has either instant-on (up) or constant-on (down), and two lever units are provided for left- or right-handed shooters. Also, a pressure plate switch is provided for mounting on a long gun with a vertical foregrip or directly to the fore-end. TruGlo makes it easy to light your way in the darkness.

MSRP: $213. Red laser version MSRP is $119.
