oh sory i didn't keep the post updated, i did install the LaserLyte on the 29, haven't had any problems so far, no battery cover lossening (i've checked several times) or shut off's (except for the timer turning it off that is) their just wasn't a better option for my needs, and i'm happy with it so far!

I'm glad to hear that it has worked out for you!

I've got a Hogue grip on my G17 and love it! While a piece of inner tube might work well for some folks, the Hogue has much more to offer, with palm swells and finger grooves. Works for me!

For those that have this sight. Did you install yourself, or take to gunsmith? It seems like an easy DIY project. Any tips on doing it on your own? I have a G26.

I installed it myself. Locked the slide into a vice to hold it still. It'll probably be hard to get the stock plastic one out without deforming it a little. The LaserLyte kit comes with a brass punch to tap the laser in.

Not difficult at all.

1 year update:

Laser has been getting dim recently and turning off by itself. Replaced the batteries and all seems fine. Range trip this weekend to confirm.

It's hard to say how much time it actually spent on in the past year to evaluate the battery life claim of 5 hours in constant mode, but I'd guess it's pretty close. I've spent quite a bit of time practicing turning it on during my draw, and used it at the range as well.

The original batteries in my Beretta guide rod laser are still good years later, to give some kind of comparison.

Got one for Christmas and had to return it. Would not adjust for windage. Must clarify that it was the older version (RL-1). Was so turned off that I don't think I will try the newer model. Will either try night sights, red dot, Lasermax (not sure it's worth the $) or just stay stock (practice point & shoot).

Thanks for sharing

strakele,

Thanks for sharing your experience with the laserlyte. I installed a RTB-GL about 5 months ago on my G26, following your instructions, and have not had a single problem with it.

Glad this has been helpful.

As a quick update if anyone is still interested, my laser had been getting kind of flaky.. turning off, dim, didn't want to come on, etc. Last weekend I fully disassembled it, cleaned all of the electrical contacts and batteries, reassembled, and it's back to working as it should.
