A laser for assisting the aiming of a firearm is located in a tubular member for emission of a light beam through an end thereof. The tubular member is mounted at the first location with linear freedom of movement, and at a second location with angular freedom of movement, relative to the firearm. The laser may be potted or rigidly mounted in the tubular member. A relative position of an aiming mark in the form of a light spot on a target of the firearm may be varied by angular adjustment of the tubular member at the first mounting location or by selectively deflecting the light beam in or at the tubular member.
