Does Crimson Trace Add to Left Side of Pistol?

    Does the original CT design add any bulk to the left side of the pistol? All the pics I can find show only the right side. I have a tight-fitting kydex holster that would need to be modified if so, and I'm not sure I'd want the bulge sticking into my side anyway.

    I'm talking about this one, not the newer ones that attach to trigger guard and rail.

    Using google images, I did find this:

    It appears the humped portion wraps equivalently around the left side of the grip as well. Though, it appears to be smooth and rounded enough that it shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks. The grip doesn't bother me so much, since it's outside the holster. I'm only concerned with anything above the thumb rest on the G26, since that would be under the holster. In your pic, it appears that there is a very small bit of extra stuff there. Hmm...

    The Crimson Trace has a battery in each side of the grip. That is why the bulge is on both sides.
