1 week ago to the day I ordered a set of CT grips for an SP101 and they arrived today! I can't wait to get home and install them. I may have to call in sick tomorrow, it's allergy season around here, you know!
I ordered an LG-111 "Defender series" and the grip is a lot smaller than the Hogue that I have on it now. With these grips it will be a 3 finger gun with the pinkie hanging off.

I got home last night and installed these grips. Very easy to install. Went on in under a minute.
I like where the activation button is, right under the middle finger. Just squeeze the grip and the laser goes on. Lighten up on the grip a little and it goes off.
From my initial observations, indoors, the laser is very bright and easy to pick up, even in a well lit room. Haven't had a chance to see how it looks in bright sunlight, not that that matters. I have a Hi-Viz sight installed to handle that situation!
The dot is bigger than I thought. I guess I was expecting a little pinpoint that they always show on TV.
Overall, I am very satisfied. Range reports to follow.
Saw the tour of the Crimson Trace Place. (that rhymes)
It's pretty amazing to watch the actual assembly process used to make those grips.
Watched it on Bang Bang TV.
Suprisingly large amount of "Human Hands On" work & constant testing during fabrication for each set of grips.
Very Good High Quality Control.

I love mine. I end up using my .357 much more because of them. it's great for dry fire practice. If you set is like mine, you can do point shooting and then check your sights just by pressing the button in. Real life I don't see them working well, unless it's limited light, but I'll take every tool I can get. Sights, point shooting and CT. I won't buy a gun that doesn't have CT grips now. I'm still waiting for the XD .45acp grips to come out. But I love wheel guns. Easy to carry, comfortable and cant go wrong with .357....very nice.
Very nice! Can't wait for the range report
If you own a handgun and your state law allows it, please carry.
Very nice, I put some on my wife's sp101. I only had to do a slight adjustment and they were right on the money. They sure do look cool in an indoor range full of gun smoke...
OH THANK GOD! Finally a picture!
I was getting twitchy!
By the way, VERY sweet set-up!

I held an sp101 with 'em the other night. I've been reading another thread on here where someone mentioned that CT grips forced them to lower their grip on an S&W revolver, but they didn't seem to interfere with a high grip on the SP.
