TNVC – LDI DBAL-PL Class 1 IR Laser

Friday, October 24th, 2014


TNVC has just released the new Laser Devices / Steiner LDI DBAL-PL Class 1 IR Laser – Dual Beam Aiming Laser. A multi-functional pistol aiming laser, the DBAL-PL attaches to any pistol with an underbarrel M1913 Picatinny rail, and features four outputs:

- Infared laser pointer
- Infared LED illuminator
- Green/Red visible laser pointer
- LED white light


The DBAL-PL is housed in a hard anodized, machined 6061 T-6 aluminum body, waterproof up to 5 meters. Two buttons are present on an angled rearward-facing surfacing, located for quick access and easy to manipulate with or without gloves. One button, marked “VIS”, activates the visible laser and 400 lumen white light. The other button, marked “IR”, activates the infared laser and illuminator. The infared illuminator is largely effective out to 50 yards and visible to almost 100 yards, taking into consideration that the unit is designed for a pistol which will rarely be employed past 25 yards.

The DBAL-PL is powered by two CR123 batteries, and features a general runtime of 1.75 hours.

TNVC – TM14 Mk2 Now Available

Saturday, October 4th, 2014


The TM14 Mk2 is a lightweight, low profile mount for the standard issue AN/PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular, designed to allow rapid attach and detach from the Aimpoint Twist Mount Base.


The TM14 Mk2 boasts several new features when compared to the original TM14. An integrated low profile lanyard loop has been added to the Mk2, to allow the user to dummy cord their PVS-14 to their helmet or weapon system. The Mk2 also features an improved angle on the underside ramp which facilitates indexing it onto the Aimpoint Twist Mount Base. The overall weight of the Mk2 has also been decreased by removing material from the underside of the unit. Lastly, the edges around the ring have been reduced with a more pronounced chamfer to make them less sharp.


Available in Black and FDE.


It’s Here! Finally, A Civilian Legal Insight Technology ATPIAL-C: Available Exclusively From TNVC

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Last year I visited Insight Technology and saw several products they have in the pipeline. One of those items was a civilian legal ATPIAL-C. The AN/PEQ-15 Advanced Target Pointer Illuminator Aiming Laser or ATPIAL is one of the most popular weapon accessories ever adopted by DoD because of its size, durability and ease of use, combining visible and IR lasers into a single package. It is also one of the most sought after laser devices by civilian shooters. Unfortunately, it’s never been commercially available and the few that are out there came into the market under rather nefarious circumstances. They have been Government-only devices due to the power of the unit’s lasers. The restriction on sales to civilians has even included most Law Enforcement organizations. No one could get them. That’s why a commercially certified model is so important. I am very pleased to learn that these are now available exclusively through our friends at TNVC. Read their release, below.

The wait is over.

The journey home from the battlefield is a long one. The AN/PEQ-15 (ATPIAL) from Insight Technology, has been faithfully serving U.S. Warfighters as the standard issue aiming laser throughout the Global War on Terror. Seen on almost every U.S. weapon fielded since the mid 2000’s, the ATPIAL has been highly coveted by the commercial market, yet always out of reach due to government restrictions on high power infrared lasers… Until now.

Introducing the ATPIAL-C. Forged for the Warrior, Honed in the Crucible of Combat, and Proven by Heroes, the legendary AN/PEQ-15 is now available in a civilian-legal package as the ATPIAL-C.


Some history how it came to be. At the 2014 SHOT Show TNVC was approached by Insight to discuss the viability of this product in the commercial market. Both TNVC and L-3/Insight believed it would be very well received by individual civilian and law enforcement personnel. We were asked to be the exclusive launch vehicle for the ATPIAL-C and jumped at the opportunity. Presently, TNVC is the only place to get these! After all these years in combat, TNVC is extremely excited to bring the ATPIAL-C home.

The unique aspect of the ATPIAL-C is it’s pulled right off the same military production line as its full power cousin, but with a civilian legal Class1 Infrared Laser Pointer and Illuminator. Other than the power rating, there is no difference between the ATPIAL-C and the ATPIAL.

The ATPIAL-C (Advanced Target Pointer/Illuminator Aiming Laser – Commercial) is a multi-function Class1/IIIR Infrared/Visible laser from L-3/Insight Technology. It features an Infrared Laser Pointer (0.7 mW Class1), Visible Laser Pointer (4.6 mW Class 3R Red), and Infrared Laser Illuminator (3 mW Class 3R). Based on the standard issue AN/PEQ-15 (Class IIIb) for the U.S. Warfighter, the ATPIAL-C’s Class1/3R power makes it completely eye-safe and available to the general public. Class1 Infrared Laser Pointer feature a 0.7mW rating which is not restricted by the FDA. They will easily reach out to 450 yards, encompassing most target engagement ranges when paired with a night vision goggle for the civilian and law enforcement professional. Considering that Gen3 Night Vision Goggles have a maximum target identification range of 100-115 yards, the 450 yard range of the ATPIAL-C is perfect.

The Visible and Infrared Laser Pointers are slaved so that zeroing one will zero the other in tandem. The Infrared Laser Illuminator is a true laser illuminator system, producing no bright downrange visible signature as seen in infrared LED’s. In order to stay within Class1 guidelines, the Illuminator is lower power, able to reach 150 yards and is non-adjustable. This is perfect for short to medium range engagements. Like the full power ATPIAL, the ATPIAL-C’s Infrared Illuminator can be used to wash out the bloom of the Infrared Laser Pointer at engagement distances.


The ATPIAL-C is a low profile laser system that mounts to any standard M1913 Picatinny Rail. Its design allows it to sit lower on the rail than most other lasers, creating a “saddle bag” affect, so as not to impede the shooter’s sight picture when mounted at the 12 o’clock position. Its glass-reinforced high-strength polymer body housing is very robust and impact resistant. The unit features a simple dial selector for changing the output settings on top of the housing. Activation is achieved via the included remote pressure pad or onboard “fire” button. A rear-facing battery compartment makes changing batteries simple and convenient, even when the unit is pushed all the way forward against a standard AR Front Sight Base (by the way: you should never store your expensive night vision and lasers with the batteries installed). Windage and elevation adjustments require a small flat head screw driver and produce positive clicks.

The ATPIAL-C is the closest thing an individual can get to the standard issue full power ATPIAL.

We are currently accepting pre-orders. L-3 will be delivering the first units to our warehouse mid to late November with the next shipment in mid to late December. Shipping will be first come, first served. Pre Orders must be paid in full.

Place your Pre Order before September 15 and get it for only $1,199.00. That’s a $100 savings! After that, the price is $1,299

TNVC Hunting Videos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

TNVC recently released a series of YouTube videos detailing highlights from a recent hog hunt at Wild River Ranch in Victoria, Texas.

This video features footage of a 5.56 SPR build in use – 77gr match ammo, with the newly released FLIR T75 clip-on thermal mounted in front of a Trijicon ACOG. The shots were taken from roughly 100 yards. This video could also be the very first instance of a hog kill while using the FLIR T75.

The next set of videos shows two separate occurrences of the use of a Barnett Quad 400 crossbow with a PEQ-15 laser mounted to it. The hunters utilized TNV/Sentinel goggles during the hunt. This could very well be the first ever video of a hog kill with a crossbow with a PEQ-15 mounted to it.
