    Default Insight AN-PEQ16 vs. PEQ15 ATPIAL

    I had an opportuntity to take a in depth look at the new Insight AN-PEQ16, which is the next step up from the currently issued PEQ15 ATPIAL.

    Comparison shot with the PEQ15.
    The PEQ16 has a 100 lumen lamp assembly where the IR illuminator used to be at. Insight moved the IR illuminator into a three lamp module in the same line as the IR and visible laser.

    Dual switch that can control the PEQ16 and also the BVL


    Closer look at the latest SOPMOD Block 2 Bright visible light, SU233

    Nice! The "man" is back. I've seen pics of that AN PEQ-16 on some US Marine M-16's. Great-its like an Insight M3X and PEQ-15 in one unit.

    You sure? I've seen the PEQ-15 not the 16...I find it hard to believe Marines with their budget are rolling more expensive pieces of equipment on m16s than I've seen Delta operators use on their 416s. Anyways, it eliminates the problem with the light interfering with your hand grip on the SCAR.

    Huh, interesting. Looks like it protrudes out more on the left side (the IR lasers). How's the weight compared to the 15?

    There is a PEQ15 model with a visible light on it. You may be getting confusion from that.

    Default U.S. Marines have both the PEQ-15 and PEQ-16

    You don't need to apologize to BrianT. You were right and he was wrong.

    This photo shows a Marine with a PEQ-16 mounted on his M16A4 (the flash light is covered):
