guys, how well do they stay sighted in? I dont expect pin point shot after shot for for say 7-15 yards are they fairly on the money as far as grouping goes? My main intent is for play at the range or just to have that red dot which could de escalade a situation fast.

I just ordered the laser grips to play around with for now but im just worried about hiow those may effect the grip and concealability. Thanks in advance.

I have a lasermax in my G21 that I'm trying out. Accuracy is fine in my eyes. I only use it to practice point shooting rather than square box target shooting. It's a reassurance for me until I am proficient enough to point shoot without it.

Excellent question, I just acquired a G26 and was interested in the Lasermax, which is the "guide rod replacement" right? There are large coin and some end user feed back would be "spot on" here. Cheers

Lasermax makes a variety of options. In theory, at least, the guide rod version should be most accurate because it is about as close as you can get to the flight of the bullet. But I've only had experience shooting a rail-mounted lazer and was still impressed with accuracy at the range. Seems to have stayed accurate, but I have only shot a friend's gun with the lazermax so someone who owns one might have more insight.

I've had a lasermax guide rod in my G26 for over a year now without a singlr hiccup. POI is as close to the actual POA as a laser can get because of its proximity to the barrel. Also, being a guide rod means there are no adjustments to go out of whack. It's not very practical in day to day use, but it's great for practice and if you ever need to shoot from an awkward position. Love it!

thanks for the info! Thats my basic need. Never know when you may be in a awkard position. Im going to try the laser grips first but I have a feeling ill move to the guide rod since I wont need a different holster for that.

I see this set up is about $350, is that the best price?

The LaserMax guide rod lasers in our G19 and G21 have proved to be durable, accurate, and dependable, over thousands of rounds, including +p ammo, in each gun.

Installation is easy if you have adult finger strength, some savvy with assembling things, and can note a few small, but important details.

Once installed, the slide lock (take down lever) doubles as an ambidextrous activation switch. Activation is easy with the slide racked, and the trigger(s) in the forward, ready-to-fire position.

No collimation is necessary--the laser's aim is set at the factory!

You can readily pop in the OEM guide rod for target practice, if you choose.

The clever design has no impact on the gun's ergonomics.

The pulsing Laser Dot Is...

- More quickly picked up by the human eye-brain!
- More readily apparent in a complex background!
- More intimidating to a perp!

The pulsing/flashing dot has the same advantages flashing lights have on aircraft and emergency vehicles...

Battery life is outstanding!

Lasermax internals are tops. They do not replace marksmanship and regular sights.
