So what, about the same once you figure in inflation?

No idea. Worth whatever someone is willing to pay for one I suppose.

For practical use of a shotgun the lasers that are mounted in a flashlight are pretty close. You can adjust the laser by tightening and loosening the magazine mount. Just be gentle and experiment when you install the light.

EDIT TO ADD:
10 ounces (batteries not included.) It uses two 9V batteries.
It has a Weaver style clamping system, so it can go on long guns too. Yes it's bulky compared to today's miniature LED lasers. But circa 1980 it was the only game in town.

Lol two 9 volts. I thought it might use a couple of D's or need to be ran off an extension cord! Ha, well it's very cool! Nice to see it's still in good shape. Have you brought it to the range recently just to see how others react?

That's awesome in a big hair, leg warmers, and spandex sort of way.

I'm not sure how practical it is or why it's being worn, but the fact that someone did it is awesome.

I remember the mobile phones that were bigger than bricks and weighed almost as much.

Extension cord..... LOL! Now wouldn't that be a sight to see!
It needs the 18 volt input to step up to the voltage needed to excite the laser tube. If the tube ever goes kaput, I figure I'll just replace it with a couple of metal rods and turn it into a stun gun.

Still works perfectly but I haven't used it in years. Back in the day it did raise a few eyebrows at the range though. Who knew hip shooting an AR (accurately) would be so much fun? Hahahahahahaha......
