Probably any cheap 1mW "gun pointer" is safe enough, for that use ..... i suggest you to not use pointers more than 1mW, for this, first cause remember you're pointing it at other peoples, and cannot know if you hit their eyes, also accidentally, and second, some airsoft teams does not admit laser pointers in the games, or also if they admit them, they require that they are class 2 permitted lasers.

Safety first, all the times ;)

Also, remember that, if you are planning to use the pointer for hidden hunting / sniping, it have the bad abitude to work in both the directions :D

Go for a 1mw green module. This would be perfect for your situation. Low power and yet very bright!

DX got some.
The red ones are not as visible as the green for the 5mw safety limit.
The downside to green is greater sensibility, and uncertain powerlevel.
(I have a $5 pen that gives 20mW instead of the advertised 5mW)
$34.31 - Mystery JG-016 5mW Green Laser Sight with Gun Mount (1*CR2 Included) - Mounts & Accessories
$17.80 - LXGD Gun Kit Red Laser 5mW - Mounts & Accessories

He should get a Real 532nm 1 mW lasers, Not 5 mW+

Yes, perhaps I should have put more emphasis on the uncertainty of green (and likely reed too) power levels. Particularly as an air-gun sight is almost certain to be pointed at some ones face.

Don't air gun stores have laser sights?
Perhaps they cost significantly more than $35, and may be properly power checked.

Perhaps the best solution is to send whatever is bought to a member with a LPM for calibration.

Bob Lasers sells the worst lasers on the market. Their customer service is garbage too. :yabbmad:

We never recommend them.

Do you know where to get one?

Believe it or not its going to be hard to find a real 1mW laser. You might try some UK, or Australian sources.
