I like the design and the userfriendly design.
The pirce is not peanuts, but you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the info.

CT has the same basic warrantee as Glock, unwritten lifetime.



If you want to call it a downside, it is so thin it does not have a shut-off switch. Other then that it is a very nice laser.

Cool Pic!

I like your Blaster! How does the laser effect your handling of the firearm in retrospect of not want to activate the laser at a certain given time? Like when you are going around a corner and you do not want to let everyone on the other side that you are coming.

Thanks again for the reply.

I think once you get used to it being there your muscle memory will take over and not allow you to activate the laser unless you want it on. It does not take a lot of pressure to turn it on but you can easily do it just by flexing or not, the muscle in the web of your hand.

Went out and ran my G19 with the CT grips today at the range. Very well made and I'm happy that I have a pair on the way for my 26 also. The change in grip wasnt that noticeable to me (you just have more of a beavertail feel to it now).

Whenit comes to not telegraphing your movement with the grip you can do several things. First, dont activate it like some mention here. Another method, and the one I use, is to bring my index finger up and block the laser with it. If I want the laser visible, I'll drop my finger slightly and the laser is now out there for me to see.

BTW, I zero'ed my laser for 10 yards. Was making clean hits with it at 25yrds also though.

Got my G26 grips in tonight when I got to the office. Looks like I'll be checking those out when I'm back on the range this weekend.
