I am normally a pretty basic guy when it comes to firearms. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of gadgets, but struggle from the financial side when it comes to adding expensive dodads to my guns. Most of the time I figure that rather than spending $300 dollars on optics, mounts, lasers, etc, etc... I could purchase a new gun instead! Well, I recently had a the opportunity to purchase a Crimson Trace Laser Grip for my EDC pistol. I LOVE the idea of the Crimson Trace, because the Laser Grip doesn't interfere with my standard holster and obviously gives you the benefit of the laser sight. The standard price on the Crimson Trace is $300. NO WAY I would ever spend that for a laser sight, but in this case I was able to pick up a brand new one for under $120. I figured at this rate, if I didn't like it, I could resell it and make a $100 or so. So I buy and install it. Installation was not difficult, it actually replaces the existing grip of my SigPro 2022 .40 S&W. The only small catch is that the two batteries (cr2032 if I remember correctly, and they are included) sit one on each side of the grip, so you have to maneuver the grip carefully to keep them from falling out during the install (which they did a couple of times before I got it right). The instructions also said that if you installed the grip correctly you would hear/feel a distinct "snap" when the grip clicked into place. I never felt that, but am convinced that the grips are on correctly. I head to the range the next morning. The MFG says it comes sighted in at 50 feet from the factory but "may" require some adjustment. At about 30' I was shooting low about 6" and right about 4". One quick adjustment (hardest part of the adjustment was wrapping my fat fingers around the TINY allen wrench) and it was basically dead on. I have to say I really like this addition! at 30' and closer it is an incredibly helpful piece of equipment. However, I did notice that from 30' and out, the laser dot "dances" to the point that it gets distracting (for me) and I am much better off with my iron sights. I must say I was impressed that even at 30' - 50' the laser was bright enough to see even in full sunlight. I will also say that the switch takes a little getting used to. With my standard grip, the middle "pad" on my middle finger is what activates the laser. Yes it does, and will, take some practice/training to become proficient with it, but at this point I would HIGHLY recommend this laser grip! Having said that, I still would not spend $300 on it, even knowing how much I like it. I guess if you were flush with cash and/or spend $1,500 - $2,000 on your weapon, the additional $300 for the laser grip is probably not a big deal for you. Hope this helps someone! RJ P.S. - Mods... I tried to "tag" this post.. but I obviously don't know what in the world I'm doing... sorry for the inconvenience!
