Figured I'd start a new thread here and seperate this from any Blinder M-20 discussion. As I mentioned I got a Blinder M-20 on the cheap and then had the opportunity to get these older M-06HPs even cheaper (guy has about 10 of them, I bought 4). I'm fully aware they're kinda old but I figured it would be fun to play with them, see if I can track down someone with a laser gun and test the performance.
I was going to install one this evening and snap some infrared photos since this thing constantly fires, compare it to those I did of the Lazer Zapper. I was going to do this when I got home from work but the wires were kind of short. While its easy enough to run into the engine compartment you couldn't wire the thing into the passenger compartment without wire extensions unless you had something like a Smart Car. So if you were to need to make a kill switch it would make it necessary to add wire extensions. Still installation is theoretically much easier than it was for the M20 except for this need.
I can see why these got water in them, the head isn't sealed as well as that of the M20. Probably learn by design thing, they're also somewhat heavier and made of metal, mounting brackets allow less ability to properly aim them. You could easily seal them up better with silicone or something but out of the package it is basically just a gasket sandwiched between and the head is screwed together. Doesn't appear that they're sealed that well where the wires enter either. I may try sealing them up better I don't know.
The ones I got are apparently a later version that has 3 wires as opposed to two, including a white wire which must be conncted between the two heads as well but I don't know the purpose of it. This was accompanied by an additional leaflet to accompany the owners manual. I could get more of them but I don't know what I'd do with them other than experiment and play around.
I don't think they'll be effective against more modern guns but if anyone wants to test a more modern gun against one and is in the general area I'd be curious to see what they can do.
