Excellent Laser! Even "Better Burn" for my buck! - A.J. - 10/13/2016
This is my second laser from Survival Laser, my first being the Survival Laser II SE 2,200mW. All I can say is WOW! I love the C4 host, it looks and feels VERY solid. What was a real pleasant surprise was when I tested my new SL III with my LaserBee II, it read 2,859mW. The tested power of this laser by Survival Laser, written on the pill, was 2,836mW. My reading is 23mW higher! 23 mW might not be much, but it goes to show that the people at Survival Laser definitely take the time to ensure every laser they sell meets the advertised specs. Excellent laser and superb quality! You can't go wrong when you buy from Survival Laser!
