BE Meyers & Co Inc Unveils Commercial MAWL-C1+ Laser Aiming Device

Even when the MAWL From BE Meyers was just a rumor, folks were asking for a commercial model. I know, I was one of them. They had planned for one all along, but wanted to get the initial DA models out to their mission customers. Just now, they announced the availability of a commercial model, available for open purchase.

This thing is no less than amazing! I had checked out a prototype in a static, lab environment before they were released, but I finally had the chance to put one to work while recently hunting hogs in Texas. The controls are intuitive and right where you need them. What’s more, the beam reaches out, way out, and remains focused and clear. I was able to indicate items of interest for my fellow hunters as well as illuminate areas with IR light where we couldn’t clearly see. It definitely enhanced the experience, making me and my fellow hunters not only more effective, but safer.

Below is their full press release.

The Commercial Market Spoke, and We Listened
Since the release of the MAWL-DA™ laser device to the military and law enforcement community in 2016, B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. has received numerous requests for a civilian legal variant of the MAWL™. Today we are proud to be able to support these requests by introducing the MAWL-C1+™ commercial laser device. The C1+ variant is not the typical “Class 1” laser device, and this is the first time that a laser illuminator is available to the shooting community that is not only functional for night target engagement at distance, and exceeds the performance of other commercial systems.

MAWL™ Design
The MAWL-C1+ has all the sought-after ergonomic design features of the MAWL-DA, allowing for quick operation in the dark and on the move. In under a second, using only the tip of your thumb, the laser can be manipulated from near to far and back again between short range, mid-range, and long range specific settings. With low-profile activation buttons centered at just 0.37” above the rail, the MAWL design offers an unparalleled combination of range adjustment and speed of use.

Class 1 Plus™ = Irradiance on Target
The power balance of infrared illumination and pointing irradiance at different ranges becomes critical as commercial night vision quality continually increases, which is why MAWL-C1+ brings settings specific for close range to long range target engagement. By utilizing a uniquely arrayed laser core, the MAWL-C1+ is able to incorporate a laser illuminator capable of outperforming other civilian legal laser systems on the market, and also outperforms many restricted devices. This provides the user with a distinctive and functional near infrared illuminator with unrivaled irradiance on target, allowing for positive identification of objects, the ability to surpass many photonic barriers, as well as faster target acquisition either on the range or in the field. On top of this, the visible green laser pointer in the MAWL-C1+ has selectable low-power settings for close range boresight precision that is also slaved to the near infrared pointers. Once the user has zeroed the visible green laser, the infrared lasers are also automatically zeroed, getting you into the field faster at night. By featuring centralized, co-aligned emitters, the MAWL ensures that all beams are simultaneously on target, regardless of distance.

Class 1 Plus™ = Beam Clarity
Our beam is our brand, and the incredibly smooth illumination quality of the MAWL-C1+ is the same as in the standard MAWL-DA, eliminating the distracting artifacts (a.k.a. greasy fingerprint spots) that many civilian and restricted laser devices possess. Not only does this clean energy performance improve your illumination of the target area, it makes low Figure-of-Merit (FOM) night vision devices look better by providing increased ambient and directional near infrared illumination.

Use What You Already Own
The MAWL is designed to be the best laser on the market, and works with and compliments a variety of other high-end systems. The MAWL-C1+ is designed to work with all MIL-STD/NSWC Crane Laser Lead remotes, which include the Unity Tactical/TNVC TAPS™ and TAPS Pro™ series remote cables, the SureFire SR07-D-IT, as well as L3 and Steiner remote activation cables. In addition to this, the MAWL series are designed to work in parallel with the SureFire M300 Mini-Scout Light® to maximize rail space efficiency.

  1. Victor DiCosola says:

    We here at TNVC have been most impressed with the MAWL C1+ (PLUS) and honored to be one of the first to be offering it. To say that we’ve been impressed while testing the new offering is an understatement.

  2. cj says:

    Rheinmetal do it better… ?

  3. tacguy22 says:

    $2,500? Really? Double the price of the most expensive competition? That is a bullshit price. I agree the damn thing is setup perfect, but there is absolutely no way I would pay anywhere close to that, even if I was rich. B.E. Meyers…..Guys….please tell me that you don’t charge even close to this to an agency to make that purchase?

    • jbgleason says:

      That is the cost of being first. You do realize that untold dollars went into R&D to turn the current designs on their head? The company has every right to recoup those dollars. If the market won’t bear the cost of innovation, then we won’t ever get new designs. Basic economics.

    • Jeremy says:

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t most of the other lasers made with plastic bodies? That could be a significant chunk of the price right there. Custom CNC machined parts aren’t cheap.

      Regardless, if you can afford $8,500+ NVDs, is this really such a hard price to swallow?

      • Stu says:

        Jeremy makes an awesome point. Even though they weren’t necessarily custon, most of my higher end Surefires cost some good money, even their lasesr were considered procy when first released took a few bills out of the pockets.

        I can definitely see the reason. Durability plus electronics will always equal a hefty price tag.

  4. Marcus says:

    A well engineered product with great ergonomics. I just can’t justify spending $1,100 more than the L3 ATPIAL for what is essentially a very small gain in functional design.

    • Victor DiCosola says:

      Hi Marcus, but a HUGE gain in the Class 1 performance. It ain’t even close. Just saying Brother…

      • Nate says:

        While you’re not wrong Victor and I’m a proud TNVC supporter for people who will be using this sparingly if we’re honest and without agency/federal funding at hand the pricing is admittedly painful.

        • Victor DiCosola says:

          Understood Nate and thank you (points well taken), I understand completely. We also offer financing (if that helps) and this product qualifies for that.

      • Marcus says:

        Oh, I hear you Vic. I don’t believe there is any question this is an outstanding product and BEM are great people. But when you are looking at this with a WP setup, that $1,100 just puts it out of reach when the purchase is OOP.

    • SSD says:

      Not small. There isn’t a civilian laser on the market that performs as well as this one.

  5. Duke says:

    While completely within your right to do so, should you need to bemoan the cost, please step to the left as to not be trampled by all the customers behind you in que to snatch these up with wanton abandon. Thank you.

    • MarcusAurelius says:

      HA! I would vote for this as “Comment of the day” if such a thing existed 🙂

  6. Chuck says:

    Tempting considering the wait for my ordered ATPIAL is like 24-30 weeks. Victor DiCosola are these in stock ready to ship?

  7. Dev says:

    People actually expect cutting edge at flea market prices? Really?

    • Jman says:

      Yes, of course they do! Welcome to the firearms, tactical, and outdoor markets.

    • SSD says:

      It’s always an issue.

    • JKifer says:

      dude, just look at all of the pics on the internet of all these self made subject matter warrior experts rocking backwards steel plates, holosun ..etc.. optics, backwards buis, sightmark lasers, condor kit… the list goes on.. its cool to be a tactical tool these days..

  8. B says:

    Hoping to see a future modification, which appears possible due to the modular design. This thing should have a third button that controls an external Surefire white light (Scout, etc.).

    The design is close to optimal, but this being lacking is a major oversight. Forward most button should control white light. Rear button should control laser and illuminator. Having to have a third party tape switch combined with this laser completely misses the point of the design concept.

  9. tacguy22 says:

    You can hash at people all you want about the price complaining. It’s not exactly flea market price. I can build or buy an accurate 308 rifle for that price, and you want to tell me that it’s okay to buy a laser to go on it for the same price? They will sell plenty of them….just don’t tell me that the price is from “innovation” or because it’s made of metal.

    I’m not saying the thing isn’t badass. It is. It does the job better than any other product available. No doubting that, just the price is really outrageous.

  10. Dellis says:

    To me this is a question of “Want vs Need”. I do want it and after selling some stuff, like a kidney, I will get one but do I really NEED it……..being the non-operator that I am?
