View Full Version : Laser Grips??
11-05-2004, 09:02 PM
Anyone ever have a pair of laser grips?? I want to put a lazer aim on my Kimber, but don't want one that prevents standard holster carry and these look like what I am after. What do you think?? Where is the best place to get these?? E-bay/wesbites have it for $250 or so
Did you buy another pistol, yet?

Nope, sure haven't. Last time I went to a gun shop locally I was informed that even though I have a Virginia carriers permit and its recognized in this state, the day I got my driver’s license in NC it was no longer valid since I am a NC resident. So I gotta go take a freaking class, get finger printed and go through the paperwork again. It’s going to cost my $60 or so for the class and $100 for the permit. What shit!!! Virginia recognized my military expert medal as replacement for the class and it was only $50 for the permit
So I decided to wait until I jump through these hoops before getting a new pistol but after looking at these grips, I decided I want to fix up the ones I have now
What a load of bullshit. Did you have to take a driver's test when you got your NC licence? These fuckers need to learn what "infringed" means. :hityou:

Don't know if you have ever fired a pistol with a lazer b4 but tis a bit dif than the movies. The lazer does not stay perfect while holding on target. The littlest movement has the dot shaking all over. It is fooking kick ass to shoot stuff with it as it is easy to get right on target!! I think I still have the guys card somewhere? :punish:

Yeah, I had a laser aim on my old Colt Double Eagle, but it was the old ones that mounted to the trigger guard and it tore the HELL out of it :(

The best laser setup I have used is the LaserMax replacement guide rods for a couple of my Glocks. I know they do Beretta, Sig and S&W also. I have not looked to see if they have ventured into the 1911 field yet. This was a good, very unobtrusive type of setup.
I have played, though have not owned, several CTC LaserGripped revolvers. I had access to a J-Frame and K-Frame revolvers. I thought the grips were pretty nice. The majority of the grip feels just like any other rubber grip. The actually laser emitter is on the very top of the right hand grip panel and really does not stick out all that far. Sometimes the pressure pad on the opposite panel was a little difficult to hit just right, but I'm sure with practice it becomes quite easy.
As far as being sighted in correctly, this is not brain surgery we are performing. The laser always appeared to be in relative agreement with the sights. I was able to get minute-of-badguy accuracy out to decent ranges (no pun intended).
In my opinion, lasers are mainly just toys, as opposed to tools. They will however show you if you are not holding a gun steady as you pull the trigger. I think as a dry firing training aid they work pretty well. Other than that they are just a fun addition to any pistol.
Oh yeah, when you get yours, go out and buy several sets of replacement batteries...the gadget factor takes a while to wear off.
