    I looked at that a while back. I love the ergonomics, but the engineer in me questioned the wisdom of mounting electonics on a slide that violently slams back and forth.

    Has anybody else been using this yet?

    That's really interesting. I might have to look into one for my XD.

    Interesting concept, but...

    Too much stuff on top, for me...OMO
    I like the plain old night sights...that's it on my Glocks.

    I'm sure that they are doing the same thing as LaserMax & Crimson Trace and that all of the internal guts are completely sealed in Epoxy resin.
    The Laser itself has no moving parts.
    It's easy to make certain that the batteries continue to maintain electrical contact and the simple switches are basically sealed and recoil proof.
    I'm not really seeing any problems that technology cannot overcome regarding having one mounted on a slide.

    I've used a slide mounted red dot that has held up to the abuse. As a fellow engineer I was doubtful too, but apparently it is no longer an issue in general.

    I picked up a Laserlyte for my G19 on impulse on Thursday and zeroed it this morn.

    Put about 50 rounds through and so far it has held it's zero...

    Only problem I see with it is the potential for being accidentally turned on in the holster and the batteries being dead when you need to use it.

    I've got the same weapon, and would like to know your impressions thus far. This could very well be my next purchase, if it's holding up for folks.

    Good? Bad?

    Thanks in advance

    I see that FreeGunStuff.com has the LaserLyte for the XD40 at $151+shipping.. The Crimson Trace is $250+tax if I bought it locally at Impact Guns.

    I see the CT as possibly limiting holster choices. True?

    oh i was looking at the $199 msrp for the laserlyte. $150 is a little better.

    as for the CT limiting holseter choices, I have a Comptac MTAC for both my xd and sig (CT doesnt offer a grip for the p250 yet ) and Comptac has assured me that their holsters will work without issue with CT equipped weapons. at $150 I would be more likely to consider it.

    At which point you use the regular sight that's in it as Plan B.

    It's actually pretty small and it could snag on something (just like any other add-on), but not overly likely.

    What about turning your laser on?.
    seems like in the heat of the moment.
    thats one more thing to worry with.
    either Lasermax, andLaserlyte you have to push a button.
    CT is on when you grab you gun.
    I don't have a laser yet, but thats seem like something to consider, when shopping.
    yes CT does limit choices on Holster,
    Glocks
