TAR Ideal TLG-1

The TAR Ideal TLG-1 is a compact and lightweight dual beam laser pointer featuring an integrated Picatinny rail adapter. The device can be activated by two integral ON/OFF switches (one for each laser) or by a remote pressure switch.

Designed with cost effectiveness in mind, the device features simple independent zeroing mechanisms for the IR and visible lasers, unlike the more complex unified zeroing mechanism found in more expensive devices such as the ITL AIM2000 or the Meprolight Mepro Sting. The TLG-1 was introduced in 2013, and entered service with the IDF SF shortly afterwards.
