Just saw the new LASERLYTE rear sight glock laser!

Just saw this new style laser at a local store! The LaserLyte Rear sight laser only for GLOCKS!

This may be my solution to finding a laser! Replaces the rear sight..

has an on off switch...
has pulse AND contant beam...
and best of all since it replaces the sight it has NO grip issues and fits ALL holsters!!

Just what I was looking for!!

VERY COOL!!!!

I haven't looked at them in detail, but I love the concept. Does it have a remote switch or do you have to manually switch it on each time?

You have to manually switch it on.. Little button on one side.. the laser is on the other..

I really like it.. Like I mentioned.. I think it has all the features I wanted!

I'd love to have one, but I think I'm going to wait a little while and let others work the bugs out.

Looks like two teats on a Boar Hog. Stupid too since it will obscure your view of the target.

The only thing I don't like about mine is the red LED that appears on the right (laser) side when the laser is turned on. It pretty much takes your attention away from the regular sights. I solved the problem by affixing a small piece of electrical tape over the LED. Kind of like doing the same thing with the old VCR clocks that used to blink at you if any of you remember those back in the day.

Edit: From the post above apparently I'm the "other guy".

The very reason that I will never purchase one. I like the idea of having it hidden in the silhouette of the firearm, not disturbing my direct line of sight.

I you are anything like me the rear sights on my G26 carry gun has a tendency to get bumped quite often when I carry.
So I would think that this design would be too vulnerable to damage.

Thats the reason for the laser. Red dot on target means gun is aimed at target no need to use manual sight unless more than 50 ft away. Even in bright sunlight at 7 yards you still can see the red dot on the target.

Typical trashtalk from someone who has never touched one.

If your looking through your sights and your target is so far off to the side that this blocks your view then your obviously not aiming correctly and need every bit of help you can get.

I have to agree with Blaster, it's got to be one of the ugliest Glock accessories devised. Second only to the "laserlyte bayonet"

I've shot with it and it does nothing for me, the obscuring of the front sight is a definate issue should the batteries run out or the unit be damaged in a tussle. Lastly in my opinon the manner in which it is activated is a big negatory ghost rider... u would never get it on in time if a BG was coming at you. The CT laser grips have the advantage on this one by a long margin.

Nothing beats a good set of night sight. Just my two cents...

I'm not big on lasers, but what this thing needs is some sort of a pressure switch on the grip.

Yes, I realize it would break contact and the laser would turn off as soon as the slide started moving. But think about it. The gun is in recoil anyway and the laser would not be on target anyway. By the time the slide closed and you were re-aligning on the target the laser would be back on. You would probably never notice it turning on and off.

I still think it is something for the OTHER guy to have. While he's trying to find his dot on me, I'm going to be doing a full fighting drawstroke and lighting HIM up the old fashioned way!

I have read that twice now and I don't believe it. Mine has been on longer than that and not gone dead.

I just wish they used a dot system rather than the Glock outline.

I wonder how well it will hold up under heavy use. The motion of the slide slamming back and forth might take a toll on the internals.

I am still interested in hearing if it stands up to the recoil after an extended period of time.

Got my Laserlyte sights for my G27 beginning of July. Took the gun out today and found the batteries were dead. Replaced them with the spare set that came in the original packaging. Still like them but with hindsight would probably have been better off with Crimson Trace.
Recently put Crimson Trace on my Ruger LCP and they are the best yet!

They must be tough, in a demo the guy slammed a large nail through a 2 by 4 with the sight while it was affixed to a glock, worked fine after the test....i think its a good idea i have had ct and lasermax on my guns the ct made the grip trro fat and the lasermax red dot was to small not bright enough....ct has the largest red dot, easy to see in daylight,,,,,,is the laserlyte dot small it appears in the demo to be....

mikegun, yes, it is certainly smaller, and less bright, than the light emitted from the CT on my Ruger LCP. The laser max sight on my S&W 37 J frame is brighter and larger than both of them.
