    Just saw this new style laser at a local store! The LaserLyte Rear sight laser only for GLOCKS!

    This may be my solution to finding a laser! Replaces the rear sight..

    has an on off switch...
    has pulse AND contant beam...
    and best of all since it replaces the sight it has NO grip issues and fits ALL holsters!!

    Just what I was looking for!!

    VERY COOL!!!! :pepper:

    I haven't looked at them in detail, but I love the concept. Does it have a remote switch or do you have to manually switch it on each time?

    You have to manually switch it on.. Little button on one side.. the laser is on the other..

    I really like it.. Like I mentioned.. I think it has all the features I wanted!

    I'd love to have one, but I think I'm going to wait a little while and let others work the bugs out.

    Looks like two teats on a Boar Hog. Stupid too since it will obscure your view of the target.

    I'm not big on lasers, but what this thing needs is some sort of a pressure switch on the grip.

    Yes, I realize it would break contact and the laser would turn off as soon as the slide started moving. But think about it. The gun is in recoil anyway and the laser would not be on target anyway. By the time the slide closed and you were re-aligning on the target the laser would be back on. You would probably never notice it turning on and off.

    I still think it is something for the OTHER guy to have. While he's trying to find his dot on me, I'm going to be doing a full fighting drawstroke and lighting HIM up the old fashioned way!

    The only thing I don't like about mine is the red LED that appears on the right (laser) side when the laser is turned on. It pretty much takes your attention away from the regular sights. I solved the problem by affixing a small piece of electrical tape over the LED. Kind of like doing the same thing with the old VCR clocks that used to blink at you if any of you remember those back in the day.

    Edit: From the post above apparently I'm the "other guy".

    Eats 4 silver oxide batteries every hour of constant on ($1.29 ea).
     
  9. I have read that twice now and I don't believe it. Mine has been on longer than that and not gone dead.

    The very reason that I will never purchase one. I like the idea of having it hidden in the silhouette of the firearm, not disturbing my direct line of sight.

    I you are anything like me the rear sights on my G26 carry gun has a tendency to get bumped quite often when I carry.
    So I would think that this design would be too vulnerable to damage.

    I just wish they used a dot system rather than the Glock outline.
     
  15. Unfortunately I have only put 20 or so rounds through my G26 since I got the laserlyte. I have been dedicating range time to breaking in my 23C:cool:.

    I have been carrying with the laserlyte non-stop since I bought it last month and have had no issues with snagging or printing or anything. I did change the batteries last week, but I play with the laser a lot when I do dry-firing.
    Hopefully I can get out next week and do some real testing with it, but I think that its a great accessory so far.

    I wonder how well it will hold up under heavy use. The motion of the slide slamming back and forth might take a toll on the internals.

    I am still interested in hearing if it stands up to the recoil after an extended period of time.

    i feel like i might rip those sights off if i was racking the slide/malfunction in a pressure situation.
