Hello guys,

I am selling a Rayfoss RF532-300mw-FWB that has its crystals removed. So all you get is a nice waterproof host, the focusing lens assembly and a functional IR diode. I am willing to sell this thing for 30$ excluding the price of international shipping. Please let me know if you're interested but don't ask for a lower price because you still get a fair amount of things from this laser that can be re-used or assembled to build you own greenie. Sorry for not having updated the status of this laser to semi-functional for a long time now.

Thanks!

Re: FS: Brand new Rayfoss RF532-300mw-FWB

Hello guys,

I am selling a brand new 300 mW green rayfoss waterproof laser with on the fly focusing which is the new model rayfoss is selling. Instead of using a tool to adjust the laser's dot, you just turn a dial to do so while the laser is operational. I have received this laser as a replacement because I originally had the RF532-200mW-FMK and didn't want it. Rayfoss shipped me the laser itself, so no box, charger or batteries will be included with this item. The only reason I am selling this laser is because I was not happy with rayfoss' products in the past, and this one still fails to meet my requirements. I will be willing to ship internationally at the expense of the buyer. I am willing to let this go for 150 $ since it doesn't come with any accessories. Please do not hesitate to inquire about the laser.

Thanks!


How doesn't this one meet your requirements? What are your requirements?

My requirements are better build quality, perfectly circular dot etc...
I am selling this because I have been saving up to buy an Optotronics rpl-200. Hope that answers your question.

Okay so this laser doesn't have good build quality or a round dot?

It's a rayfoss laser. If you've ever owned one then thats the kind of quality you should expect. I just want something more special...

Sure, the machining isn't top quality nor is the quality of the spring, clicky, host in general. Also, the dot has some side splash which is normal with all previously owned rayfoss lasers and even more so with this one specifically due to the waterproof lens they've installed. You can't expect more from a rayfoss laser from my experience.

I have received numerous replacements from rayfoss, all of them being the RF532-200mW-FMK model so i decided to try this one and I am still not satisfied with the overall quality.

I got that same host from o-like. I had to return it. The dot looked like a comet with a big tale. I took it apart and the module wasn't centered at all. so it hit the lens way off. The beam came out at an angle too. And the parts inside really weren't that great.

Did you have any of those same problems with this one? These are new hosts from the manufacturer. I wonder if they are having problems with making them.

Not meaning to dump on yours though. I'm sure you will provide pictures and all the details they need. I'm sure yours is more within reason. But I'm wondering if it stems from the same problems. Others have gotten totally fine ones. I have an exchanged one that I will be getting. So I'll have this host again. hoping it's all good this time.

Mine seems to be exactly like the one you've described. I can't be bothered to send it again because I've done so about 4 times now and I've been loosing a significant amount of money doing so. I just want to break the endless chain of replacements by selling this one and putting my bad experience and losses behind me.

I'll give you $110 shipped priority for it if you get desperate (that will fit into a $5 priority box). That is the only way I'd be willing to deal with this host. At the very least I could take it apart and put it in a new host and get some better lenses. I know it's not to tempting at all for you but just throwing it out there. :whistle:

Actually, the laser's KTP crystal has come off and now all I've been getting is IR light. The laser module can easily be taken out of the host, so I'll be willing to sell it for that price in the current condition it's in if you're interested. I just want to get rid of rayfoss products...
