They were other 561 pens built before(only 5 I believe) and they were in the Rigel host
Care to share?
Don´t know anyone owning a 561nm pen.
There is a company who seem too sell them: green yellow laser pointer at 561nm, green laser pointer pen
Diameter is 16.5mm there. The AAA "Rigel" / "GLP" have a 13.5mm diameter.
AFAIK 532 and 593.5 were the only visible wavelengths CNI has ever put into the AAA pen. All other CNI pens are the CR2 one. So I think all the lasers in this GB will be in the CR2 host.

^That site is just confusing, the top picture shows the 2XAAA pen, then the specs say 1XCR2 lol.
This GB is going pretty well but I am going to need someone else to take over the GB when it comes time to sending the money to CNI.
I contacted CNI knowing these would be purchased around Christmas and this is what I was told:
Thanks for your email, it is my great honor to provide you service.
Ok, i can keep this price.
But if you can confirm the order early, which will be ok for us, due to this laser pointer is difficult to produce, so we need more time to produce the laser.
Otherwise, we can not sure if we can ship them to you on time.
Hope to get good news from you.
Were going to need to set up a date when the money is due, most likely around Christmas(I won't have the money until then).
Alex: Have you checked the prices of the GLP units from Handylaser?
If prices are close to the same as the price you got from CNI then you would have the GB money handling and ordering part resolved.
I already asked HandyLaser about 1 year ago if they sold the GLP models and they told me they don't. The only lasers they sell are labbies
I did see that their parent company Opto Engine LLC only shows only labbies.
Yet the 2014 Handy web site shows all of the GLPs and other handhelds.
Might be worth asking again but ask the responsible person at Opto who orders from CNI andor runs the Handy Division if they would do an order, especially if it would be a multiple piece order that would be pre-paid for 5 mW or less legal to import and sell GLP units, not their standard stock item items.
Just a thought.
Wouldn't hurt to ask. I'll tell you what Handy Lasers & Opto LLC respond
