    ArmyCop,

    Were I you, I"d email the folks at CT about that. I know that some models require a shim they also make, for some variants, it just may be they do have one that would work for you. The frame on yours may well be close enough to another one that they do make them for.

    Talk to them. Couldn't hurt, and the last thing they'd want to do would be to sell you one and not have it work.

    MadMike: Thanks for that suggestion. I emailed them a while back and they replyed they didn't have any and didn't have any plans to make for the CS45 anytime soon. I'd think they would have told me if they had a model we could make work wouldn't you? I wonder now after your post if I should re-email them about the possibility of making a diff set fit mine. Something I'll think about.
    Thanks again for your post.
    For God, Family and Country!

    Mike.......Let us know how the gun shoots, as i'd love to hear about it. I then can suggest the grips to the Glock shooters who frequent the store................if they don't work out ........that's a huge plus as well........good info either way

    Got too tuckered out to post here yesterday. Enough good stuff happening that it makes me down-right suspicious!

    Took the G23 to the range and got to play with the CT laser.

    It was GREAT!

    I probably wasted quite a bit of ammo just "playing" with the thing. Next trip, I'll "get down to business" and report something maybe useful.

    I am convinced that it was well worth the money and I doubt I'll have any regrets about it.

    As is, with no adjustments done by me, and very little real practice with it, I now know that where ever I put that dot, a 40 cal. hole will appear within about 2 inches, maybe less.

    Although the novelty hasn't worn out (only fired about 135 rounds that day,) the CT laser has shown me what I need to work on.

    Shooting at the 25 yd. target, as I squeeze the trigger back, I can see that little red dot start to move all over the place. And this is something I can work on, at home. All I need to do is to pace off the distance, put up a dark surface to use as a "target," and work on keeping the dot in place as I drop the firing pin on a snap-cap.

    Then back to the range to put what I learn to use.

    I must say that I do understand how some feel that a laser could keep someone from developing basic good marksmanship. But, I am convinced that I can use it to improve my shooting skills.

    I'm going to work at that.

    Right now, I cannot think of a single, negative thing to say about the CT. I love it!

    Mike - just as I expected

    Just be sure you continue to practice with iron sights as well - and let the red dot be secondary if light low enough.

    As you now see too - it sure as heck shows you what you may be doing wrong with trigger action and yeah - that can be worked on by dry fire, with of course a cleared (three times!) gun

    Yikes! I can't believe I didn't already try that!

    I'm off this Mon-Wed, I'll definately give that a try. Besides, I just noticed that my local WalMart has .40 S&W for $9.95 a box.

    By that, I mean the beam is a know distance from the center of the bore. By adusting the beam so it points parallel to the bore, the dot should appear that same distance from the point of impact, at all ranges.

    The laser would give a POA that would be off just by the distance of the distance between the emitter and the center of the bore, regardless of range. And that distance is certainly close enough for self-defense purposes.
    Hmmm.....now you have my analytical mind churning! I might be needing to adjust mine!

    OK, I almost got it done, I did shoot with the weak hand. No problems, the CT made it easy. But, I forgot to try that with the left eye.

    My non-dominant eye is really my weak eye.

    But, next time out, I will do it, as it would be good to know how difficult it is.

    Years ago, I used to shoot quite a bit. I most always shot mostly with a two-hand grip, but each time at the range, I would routinely fire some one-handed with the strong hand, and with the weak hand, as well.

    Actually, that would have been somewhere around 1975 to 1980. . .

    In any event, I'm still glad I bought the CT!
