Lasermax for my EDC

This is a discussion on Lasermax for my EDC within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; It looks like the Lasermax is the best/only choice for my Glock G36. Has anyone heard of these losing their zero over time?...

    Well I put the lasermax into my G32 and had problems with it. It caused occasionally the slide to not fully go fully forward after firing (the tip of the rod is of different material from the rest of the rod and it was causing snags even with lube).

    Eventually the washer thing at the end that holds the spring in place broke and I just decided not to replace it. While the laser was very accurate and neat it was not worth making the gun unreliable for SD carry.

    One last note is that the slide lock spring that comes (and is necessary) with lasermax is MUCH to strong. I could no longer disassemble my glock in normal fashion after I installed it (only my thumbs were strong enough to push the lock down on each side, where I had no problems with glock spring).

    I've also been looking for a laser/light combo for my G36 but haven't found anything becuase it doesnt have a rail. I was wondering if one can one be attached to the trigger guard?? If possible, how secure would it be?

    This is the first I've heard of this problem. Have you contacted Lasermax? I heard they have very good customer service.

    I have a lasermax on both my G27 and G 29 and they have functioned flawlessly also. I echo the above statement. Contact Lasermax, they should make things right for you!

    I prefer to keep my Glock-36 stock, except for Trijicon night sights. In a true parking lot SD situation, I see no use for a CT insert...OMOYMV

    I have a LaserMax in my G36. It is "dead on the money" at all realistic self-defense distances.
    It has caused no function problems at all.

    I'm afraid this is not an option as it negates pretty much all holster choices.

    Streamlight makes or at least made adapters for non railed guns. It clamps to the front of the trigger guard and extends a floating rail out under the dust cover. The problem is they are very scarce and you will have to beg and plead with streamlight to get one.

    I use a lasermax on my G27. Works perfectly.

    I'm afraid I got an email back from Crossbreed stating that they don't "at this time" make a super-tuck for a G36 with the LG-436.

    But I did find that Fist does.

    No offense to you guys with LaserMax (I may still get one) but I do not want to have to add another step to the "draw and present" process if I don't have to. I'm still looking into this.
