So, remember last week when I posted about the new LaserLyte Kryptonyte Center Mass laser?
I love how they included a Zombie Pistol Bayonet in the package too. It's attention to detail that really makes a company stand out...
I fully intended to install this on my Mossberg 590, I really did. I got the Mossie out of the safe, unpacked the laser, and then I realized that the Mossie has a Weaver rail, not a Picatinny rail (I didn't know the difference, either, so I googled it and found this great explanation at Brownells - speaking of another place staffed by totally awesome folks).
Fortunately, I have a back-up plan. The Bushmaster has a picatinny rail, so it got to be the stunt-Mossberg (I'll have to order up a Picatinny rail for the Mossie and get it to the range). Here's what the laser looks like:
That distance, believe it or not, is darn close to 50 feet. I'm in the office over the garage (24' long) and looking into the hallway that's about 25 feet long. The ring at that distance is about a foot in diameter - a little large for 00 buckshot spread from what I remember from patterning, but still within minute-of-goblin.
Now, to get a correct rail and get it on the Mossberg!
That is all.
