Steiner DBAL-A3 - TA Targets

Steiner DBAL-A3


Lead Time on this product: 5-10 business days


The DBAL-A3 has been an awesome accessory for all of our night shooting builds. We have run this laser device on many of our rifles and pistol platforms over the last couple years. There are many solid lasers on the market and the DBAL-A3 is at the top of the list for us.

A few reasons why we love the DBAL-A3:

  • This laser aiming device is compact & simple to mount
  • The DBAL A3 features many settings to fine tune it for your uses
  • The visible laser is slaved to the IR laser making zeroing a breeze
  • The battery compartment is on the front of the laser allowing easy battery removal
  • Battery swapping does not affect zero
  • Two switch input options as well as a manual button on the top of the body

While every citizen class laser is neutered, the DBAL-A3 is packed with features that makes up for it. Full power lasers, while not illegal to own, are extremely difficult to acquire. This model is citizen legal. Please note: This item is ITAR controlled. Prior to checkout you will automatically see a form for ITAR compliance. Fill out and submit to place order.

The Steiner DBAL-A3:

The Steiner DBAL-A3 (Dual Beam Aiming Laser) is a compact, rugged, easy to use laser aiming device.

The DBAL-A3 is largely meant for use with nods. The Body of the DBAL-A3 features an activation button at the top for quick activation. Or run a pressure pad (two pads included, one with single wire, one with dual wire to activate IR/Visible laser simultaneously).

What makes the DBAL-A3 so great?

The Steiner DBAL-A3 is an easy to use device. The Picatinny mount is quick attach and can be swapped between rifles without tools. Zeroing the DBAL-A3 is extremely easy. The visible green laser is slaved to the IR laser. This makes zeroing the device extremely efficient. The infrared illuminator features a focus. Users can tighten the beam or create a “flood” of IR light depending on need and application.

Overall, the Steiner DBAL-A3 packs features into an easy to use package.

1.) Why should I consider the DBAL-A3?

The DBAL-A3 is a consumer legal laser that is packed with features. A big feature we love is the fact that the visible laser is slaved to the IR laser. This means you can really dial in your zero in daylight hours. Once darkness falls, simply confirm zero with IR laser and make final adjustments. Some lasers only have IR function which means all zeroing must happen at dusk. The DBAL-A3 also features an adjustable IR focus which allows users to really dial in the flood of their IR illumination. While not the most powerful IR illuminator, we have found it does fantastic on a weapon under night vision.

2.) Can I buy a full power laser?  

The short answer to this is yes. Many folks have sources to purchase full power lasers, although you won’t be able to do that direct from a dealer. You would need some form of military or law enforcement contacts. The unfortunate reality is it is very difficult to get full power lasers.

3.) Are full power lasers worth it?  

In reality, most of us won’t need the full power lasers. For 200 yards and closer, the consumer class lasers really do work well.

4.) Are these units in stock? 

We do stock these units, but we also take orders when stock is low or out. This is because of our good relationship with our supplier. Typically we can get more lasers in a matter of days. If you have questions about lead times, please contact us at the “contact us” page.

5.) When should I consider buying a laser like this? After you have a quality build, you have a good foundation of fundamentals, and you have your helmet and nods setup figured out. An IR laser/illuminator really won’t do much for you without night vision. A quality white light will be the first form of illumination you should consider. As you check off all your boxes of priorities, then grab the laser for night vision aiming/shooting.
