Feyachi RDS-25 Red Dot

with No Comments

When Feyachi offered to send me a budget red dot to test and evaluate, I was a little puzzled when one arrived the next week. The box I received was a red dot but it did not have any Feyachi branding at all on the exterior graphics. Nor did the red dot inside. Fortunately the brand appeared in the user manual to let me know it was indeed from Feyachi.

The red dot itself looked fairly generic. This model looks identical to a Marmot red dot I reviewed over a year ago. But this box included a 1″ Picatinny riser. The red dot itself looked well made. The same could not be said for the riser, which had casting pits and a gauge when exposed the aluminum under the black oxidized finish. Whoever was making the riser mounts wasn’t as good at QC as the scope maker.

The red dot had 11 brightness settings. At its brightest setting the 4MOA red dot was visible in broad daylight. The dimmest setting was nearly invisible in all the but the darkest background. The red dot is powered by a CR2032 coin battery. The box came with two.

At the range, I was easily able to zero the scope and it retained zero throughout 20rnds of fire. To simulate years of use or heavy recoil, I banged the unit with my ammo can for about 30 seconds. I found that the red dot dit not lose zero despite the physical impact and abuse.

The poor QC and construction of the riser gave me serous doubts about its overall quality. The unit surprised me, passing my requirements for a basic red dot that could hold its zero. Time remains to be seen if it durable enough to survive long term use and abuse or just a heavy downpour.

Feyachi LF58 Retro TLR-2 or Rip-Off?

with No Comments

Back in 2004 we were watching the Matt Damon in the first Bourne sequel, Tobey Mcguire in Spiderman 2, and looking at Streamlight’s newest pistol light with a built in laser, their TLR-2. One could easily mistake the Feyachi LF58 for a remake. While not a 100% copy of the TLR-s, the Feyachi LF58 is strikingly similar.

Feyachi sent me an LF58 to test and review. It came in a plain brown box containing the light, instruction pamphlet, pair of CR123A lithium batteries A set of batteries is included in the battery compartment of the light with protective plastic contact barriers which much first be removed to activate the light. The box also contained two Allen wrenches; one for the base mount and the smaller to adjust the laser.

The LF58 is the green laser variant, mated to a 200LM light. It mounts via an integrated Pictinny rail clamp and mates well with my Glock 17 postil. In my testing, I found the built in laser was very nearly aligned to the bore. Slight adjustments can be made with an included Allen wrench to achieve a 1:1 zero.

The controls are very much a copy of the Streamlight TLR-2 with toggle-posts in the rear battery compartment which can be manipulated with either the primary or secondary index fingers. The light as momentary and constant on settings. A dial near the bottom of the scope selects for light-light&laser-laser modes.

In my testing I found that the light output far exceeded the stated 200LM by Fayachi. My readings placed it closer to 400LM. This is only half the max output of a modern TLR-2 (~1000LM) but still plenty bright for most home defense situations.

I plan to conduct further testing to determine its long term durability and reliability. While it seems to sufficiently rugged for range use, I’m not yet convinced that it’s reliable enough for personal defense.

Feyachi B13 M-Lok Bipod

with No Comments

Feyachi is known for making budget accessories that look suspiciously like other products (as does their logo). But it’s not a copy of a Harris bipod, because Harris doesn’t currently make a direct-connect M-Lok A1 bipod. If this isn’t a clone, then is this an improvement?

While the adage, “You get what you pay for” usually applies for durability and ruggedness, for 99.9% of shooters who only use a bipod at a range shooting bench, this Feyachi is good enough. Paying 3 times more for a Harris isn’t going to make them better shooters; certainly not 3x better.

I mounted the bipod on my Ruger Precision Rimfire and tried my best to break it (the bipod not my rifle) under normal use conditions. I opened and closed the legs, popped and retracted the leg stems and banged it about testing to see if the locking mechanism would fail or anything would shake loose. Passed.

At the range, I extended the legs almost all the way out and fired about 50rnds of 22LR downrange. I found it to be a very stiff and solid platform. It was level and I felt no noticeable flex or play while aiming. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by its performance. As with many Chinese made knock-offs, it remains to be seen if it will last. I’ll update this review in a few months.

Feyachi WL25 Weapon Light

with No Comments

The WL25 is Feyachi’s newest 1200 lumen weapon light. It has a premium pressure plate with momentary and constant-on buttons which comes with adapter plates that fix it to either Picatinny or M-Lok rail. Unfortunately, my model would not switch from Strobe/Alt to Low/Alt modes, despite my following the instructions. Despite this, I still found it to be Feyachi’s best-made tac light

As an aside, I had to upload this to YouTube 3 times. The first two times, YouTube’s staff flagged the video as being Advertiser Unfriendly. The first video: due to my showing how to install it on my rifle (which I showed was safely unloaded). The second video: because I still showed the light mounted to my rifle.
We are living in an insane nanny culture.
