James, I have seen/heard claims for this one:  IR-K2 Extra Long Range Pro IR Illuminator (805nm) (Night Optics) of up to 200 yards, but I've never tested it.  Beam is focusable.  Guy I know has one... he makes great claims for it, but take all he says with "a grain (or two) of salt". 

I have a pulsar 940 for my x-sight 5-18(the one that came with it is not very good and EATS batteries)... I've only actually used it out to about 100 and I've not used it on narrow-focused beam.  I've been concentrating on varmints in my back yard and have not taken it on a coyote or hog hunt yet.  I've played around with it some and it seems to have some pretty good range.  I will take it out into a pasture tonight and try to get a good feel for it.   Not visible unless you have NV.

TNVC has a Pro Torch that is advertised as a 1000yard beam.

I've only seen it advertised as 800 yards.  While it does advertise long range, is not at an "invisible" (only seen with digital NV) wavelength.  Advertised range of the Pulsar is about 200 yards, but it is "invisible".  That is important to me.  If not important to you, the TNVC definitely has a longer range.

Well, I had a discussion with ATN CS, if one would call it that. I'm still debating if I will upload all the video's I've done both at the range and in the field with this thing.  I want to see this technology succeed despite the CS or lack there of.  They learned two new terms (At least to them) today..... PATH FORWARD and NEXT STEP!   

Pray for me! That's about as far as I'll go, for now.
