Lasermax-XD-45 with photos
I got a new Lasermax site for my SA XD-45 Service. It was so easy to install. Just replace the spring assembly with the laser and replace the take down lever with the one they provide.
Shooting it was a blast, but a little tricky to get used to. I found the trick to be not to try and sight with the laser, but to use it to augment the steel sights.
I shot at the 7 yard line to test it. My first group was kinda loose in a 5 inch group. Pretty bad. I was chasing the red dot. Then I figured out that I should just aim as normal and the red dot would be where it should and just use it to confirm that I had good sight alignment and sight picture. I then was able to shoot a group so tight you could cover it with a quarter.
I should have saved the targets, but they got tossed.
I also have a M3, 90 lume light that mount on the bottom of the frame. The laser is very visible with it on in a dark room. But you should know that you can not see it in the daylight.
I really didn't need the laser, but I sold my Harley and wanted to get something to keep out of it.
Laser and slide - the laser simply replaces the spring assembly.
Modified take down lever. Notice the dot on the lever, it can be depressed from either side to turn the laser on. It has not came on by itself in the holster.
Laser on - it actually flashes like a strobe.
