Looks like someone's making them for Glock.

Also looks like someone took the Meprolight ML10226 design and said "how we can make this simpler/cheaper to machine?"

A guiderod is a sleeve to keep the recoil spring from kinking. Just that. There is no need for some sort of repeatable lockup up at the front. There is no need for lock up at the rear either.

There is a lot of play at the front of the guide.

There is a lot of play at the rear of the guide.

It's just a sleeve. So that the recoil spring doesn't buck sideways out of the dustcover.

Thats why its plastic on most new guns. I always chuckle when people ask if a metal onobtainium titanium guiderod wil make their gun more accurate. Its a sleeve for a coil spring, for gods sake.

Furthermore, with most tilt barrel lockup ups, the recoil spring guide also moves up and down as the gun cycles. And there is nothing to return it to some sort of repeatable locked position.

Yet we seem to think that we can substitute this rudimentary coil spring sleeve with a precision laser device, more over, a laser device that we cannot adjust in any way.

Disappointment usually ensues. Except for the occasional poster who's happy "that the laser is spot on at 4 yards!!!!!!"

I do not always use laser sights, but my Crimson Trace lasers have worked fine and keep zero. They may need to be sighted in.

A laser is a great training tool to teach trigger control. It will show when you dip or slap the trigger and also any flinch. You can do this with dry fire practice and when at the range.

That shake is already there, the laser is just showing it to you. As a training tool, the laser can give you instant feedback on what you are doing. Dry fire practice will show if you are slapping the trigger and can help you steady your aim. The trigger control you learn will transmit to better shooting when just using iron sights.

Yes no kidding I thought the OP's sights was fiber optic at first glance, I've never had a set of NS's that bright in that much light that the picture is taken.

The top pic has to be TFO's right?

Oh about lasers I've never really cared for them on my semi autos I like iron sites but on small snub noses I like them.

I have had 2 lasermax lasers i would not own another as i cannot adjust them, myself, i will say i nowhave ct lasers on all carry guns and would not own a pistol wo one.....i want the advantage , say if a fast hip shot is necessary, its worth the bucks to me...IF YOU GET knocked on your ass and need to make fast shots the laser can save your life, but for target shooting no, I will use my iron sights...

And single action pistols are the only handguns for self defense because automatics can jam
I've had a lasermax on my G26 for years. I rarely use it at the range, except for teaching new shooters. I don't see a single situation where having the laser installed can be an issue. I can see plenty of scenarios where having it could be a benefit.

I agree. It can't hurt. It may help.

Like you, I don't use mine at the range.

I have a lasermax micro on my Steyr M9A1. Its adjustable.

Carry it in a Remora holster. Only $35 and i like it quite a bit. [The holster]

Personally, I think lasers are ideal on a carry gun.

If it shoots a little low or high, oh well. So long as it puts them pretty close to what youre pointing at without having to aim.

You beat me to it!

That dot makes it easy to try to get the shot.off instantly. That induces jerking the trigger. Master the art of letting the dot bounce around some while the squeeze is underway.
