Mansfield, Texas – Sightmark (, a leading manufacturer of gun accessories and flashlights, has released the new AACT5R Red Laser Designator that has been evaluated by the National Tactical Officer's Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended program, receiving an overall score of 3.62. What makes the Sightmark AACT5R Red Laser Designator so unique is that it was designed with an adjustable base and is compact enough to fit on a pistol but still interchangeable with rifles and shotguns. The AACT5R is ideally used for quickly acquiring targets in high stress situations.

Dependability and easy adjustment were the top reasons Sightmark decided to use a base adjustable design. The attraction to the base adjustable design came from how easy it is to sight in when compared to most laser sighting systems. The Red Laser Designator uses windage and elevation adjustments to sight in the weapon, which the operator can lock into place. Another benefit of the base adjustability is that it adds to the operator friendliness which is important in high stress situations. Also, due to laser sights being used in close quarters, a compact laser is beneficial because it does not obstruct the feel or handling of the weapon. The development of a compact laser sight was one of our main objectives when bringing this laser to market. “When creating a new product, you must think about its marketability and design accordingly. Simply put, the Red Laser Designator hits the mark.” says, Sellmark CEO, James Sellers. Sightmark completed it's objectives by building a less obtrusive, lightweight, laser sight that is not overpriced and has the features consumers want.

The AACT5R was designed to be mounted on a pistol, rifle or shotgun equipped with a Weaver rail. The AACT5R Red Laser Designator greatly improves accuracy and substantially reduces the target acquisition time when compared to open sights. A New Hampshire NTOA member stated, “if you have never tried shooting a rifle with a laser on it you should try. I have an Eotech® on my rifle, as well, and that is quite fast at CQB distances, however; the (AACT5R) laser was much faster and you can shoot from very awkward positions and still hit your target.” The operator was able to maintain the highest level of quick acquisition accuracy, even in the most awkward shooting positions.

Included with the AACT5R Red Laser Designator are batteries, Weaver rail adapter and two (2) Allen wrenches used for mounting and zeroing the laser sight. Sightmark recommends sighting in your gun at 25yds which can be done quickly with the use of Sightmark's boresights. Without a boresighting system it still only takes a minimal amount of time due to the base adjustable design. Sightmark designed the AACT5R to be compact and accurate. Sightmark recommends laser sights for home defense or other close combat situations, where reactions can be the difference between survival and death.
