Laser sights. Do you have them? If so which brand?

Was reading about laser sights for the Glocks. I own a G30 and was considering adding a Crimson Trace laser. I like these better than the Laser Max styles. Seem to flow better and I don't like the Laser Max rear laser setup.

Just wanted to ask you fellow laser sight guys what you are using and how do you like them? As always pics are welcome.

Thanks!

Laser sights

Crimson Trace on my G19 and 26. Works good when adjusted to barrel. Good luck and let's hear what you bought.

Will do. More than likely I'm going with crimson trace setup.

Crimson trace is the way to go. They have the technology and design down pat.

Currently have them installed on all of my carry 1911's.

I have a cheapo from China through EBay, that clamps onto the weaver rail. At home, I adjusted it to the sights at about 25 feet. Took it to the range, and looking only at the laser, missed the X in the middle of the target by about 1/4 inch. I guess that means that the sights are good.

Crimson Trace is the only laser I use, or would use.

I have the LaserMax Guide Rod laser on the G37, has worked fine for me.

Added bonus of better take down lever.

I have a CT on G30. Thickens the grip a little but not enough to take them off

I use an insight tech m6 laser light combo for my hd pistol. A little pricey but I love it.

Had Crimson Trace on my g29. Didn't like how the light fixture forced my grip slightly lower. With the snap of full power 10mm the laser housing was digging into my thumb (I am a lefty). So pulled it off and ordered lasermax guide rods for my 29 and 20

Crimson Trace is a great product and a class act company, and while I'd readily consider their stuff for a revolver or a 1911, I don't favor them for Glock pistols.

The CT grips mess with the gun's ergonomics enough to bother me.

The CT frame-mounted lasers (forward of the trigger guard) preclude the use of a weapon light.

For Glocks, I prefer the LaserMax products.

We've had excellent service from the LaserMax guide rod lasers in our G19 and G21, over thousands of rounds on each weapon, using all manner of ammo.

I also have a LaserMax LMS-UNI-G for my G17 (though it fits all our Glocks) which I'm fond of. The clever design includes its own rail, so a weapon light may be added, and the green laser is far better for use in bright ambient light.

I tried a LaserMax Sabre frame-mounted laser, and while it's a slick little gizmo, it isn't for me and my large hands.

The LaserMax Genesis rechargeable green laser is likewise a slick little gizmo, but best suited for sub-compact pistols, and since sub-compact Glocks don't have a rail...

Anyway, that's where I'm at!

The minor change in the grip bothers some Glockers, but others don't mind a bit. Clearly, this is just personal preference.


It doesn't bother me, but unless you can try before you buy, it's a good idea to buy from a dealer that has a good return policy in case you don't like the feel. Of course, you have to be careful not to scratch any part of it

I like OpticsPlanet.com because they have good prices and a 30-day return policy.

BTW RayB, Just like you, I like the CT 1911 grips because they ROCK! No holster issues, and the one with the master switch is good for situations when you don't want to reveal your location.

I use crimson trace on all my carry guns. You can turn them Completely off when needed, as well as conceal the laser with proper trigger discipline. Good battery life and durability no issues with holsters, instinctive activation. Crimson trace covered it all.

No question, instant-on is a great feature on a CCW or BUG!

The deliberate activation suits me fine on a bedside gun...

Crimson Trace’s feature DVD, Shots In The Dark, is a must-see for anybody doubting the advantage a laser can offer a shooter!

I have a few of them.Here they are on my 30.

I wouldn't reccomend them if you have smallish hands though as the 30's grip circumference is already pretty big.
