Went to the range today and ran 200 rounds through my G26. The first 100 with the laser off and the second 100 with it on. No problems whatsoever. One thing I do notice is that if you have the laser set to blinking and you fire the gun, the laser resets itself to always on. It doesnt bother me because I don't use the blink setting.

If yours is doing this, you should call LaserLyte and send it back for replacement/repair because I've seen them work perfectly in blink mode without resetting to constant on. It's NOT supposed to do what yours is doing, and I'm sure they'll make it right for you.

I was at Cabelas in Michigan today and they are selling Glocks with these lasers installed already. Its adding 100.0O to the price.

To answer the previous poster, I got mine setup perfect on my everyday carry so even though it might be wrong, I won't be returning it. too much work to tear off.

What would be nice if they used tritium dots rather than the standard U sight and included a tritium front sight. I would pay extra for that.

I agree about the tritium but then it would retail for $300, not $150-200. I actually plan on buying night sights just for the tritium front sight! I gotta see if Glockmeister has any spare, since they are located right next to my range.

That is also what I plan on doing.

I wish instead of the barrels would roll or curve down than up so that it doesn't look like mickey mouse so much. Also this is a product coming from a company that makes a pistol bayonet.... and that sir I can not take seriously.

Good idea, but I think a sqoosh more engineering could have gone into it. Maybe instead of 1 model for all. Models that fit the slide tighter per gun model, XD, Glock, 1911, etc.

Hey now, dont knock the pistol bayonet....I have one and its awesome. I cant seem to find a holster that will keep the blade from poking holes in my jeans though

About the laser sight, it seems like it would take a pretty unnatural movement to turn it on while drawing the gun during a stressful situation.

I know, slightly old thread now but I wanted to post an update.

I just took my G23 with brand new Laserlyte to the range and had a fun time. It's a little sloppy zeroing the laser in some directions since you have to back off the screw and wait for the laser to adjust (took a minute to get my laser to move left). Once set up right though it's accurate. I was only shooting 10 yards but I was satisfied, and it also helped reinforce good trigger control.

I believe I figured out why the laser will always revert to a solid beam after shooting from a pulse beam. Even the force of the firing pin moving seemed to turn the unit off, probably from the batteries moving slightly off the connections. definitely a design flaw but it hasn't affected my unit enough to complain.

I still like the unit and the whole idea of putting a laser on top the gun. For me it was the only option I had without removing my favoruite grip cover! and no, the unit does not block your view when using sights.

I've had mine almost six months now.
Took it to the range the other day and find it switches itself on after the first shot. Switched it off, fired again, and the laser is back on again.
Some might like this. I don't.(It's not supposed to happen).
My next laser will be a Lasermax in the barrel or a Crimson trace on the grip.

Try taking the batteries out and bending the tab/ pulling on the spring increase tension on the batteries. That might fix it.

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.

yea, a few bugs (or QA issues) and not a design that everyone is going to jump on but I personally am sold. as for the question about the big dog sight, i'll have to measure it when I get home next week as I'm on vacation but it should work. check it first, or make sure you can return it just in case!

btw, it's half the price of a lasermax :P

I got one for my gen 2 g23 and i like it , i had a lasermax but the red dot was to small,also had a crimsontrace which was great but hard to grip the pistol, this laserlyte is cheap u can pick them up for 100 bucks the dot is plenty bright and it works great seems to be very tough after 500 40cal rounds, i am sold on it and will soon get another one, and no it wont come off when u rack the gun, in my opinion its a very good product seems like it ill last, ill report aain after 1000 rounds....

Thanks for this update.. I must admit though.. now that crimson has the laserguard that isnt on the grip but actually on the trigger guard it seems really nice (no width to the grip).. The major downside is they only have it available for certain models and you would have to go holster shopping again I would imagine.

I have a Crimson trace on my kel tec, goes under the slide, and makes the litt;le 380 very accurate, i see now they have thee for Glocks, but one would have to get a new holster......ill stick with the laserlyte, plenty bright and seems quite tough, and priced right 100 bucks, a gun dealer told me for every 3 glocks he ets a free laserlyte i guess thats why some place have them already on for 100 bucks, i put another 100 roungs through my g23 with the new laserlyte on and it works great, no more CT bulging grip....the laserlyte does not block the target, for me anyway.....so far so good...

well as satisfied as I am with the Laserlyte, it looks like I might be selling it. I'm getting a new Taurus to become my new carry gun (assuming I like it enough...) but as of yet there are no laser options for the millennium pro series guns. If I end up changing carry guns I'll probably sell my Glock laser and use the money for night sights.

I never managed to get mine to stop cycling back to steady laser after firing. Tightening the battery cap helped to an extent, but it still reset upon return to battery. It does make a very nice handle for brass check though, I have caught myself using it a lot! I only put about 200 rounds thru under the sight but it still works.

Not my cup of tea, its hideous. BUT, if it functions correctly then it stands the chance of possibly saving ones life someday, then I say go for it. I will continue working on using my stock sights for now, then once I am proficient maybe someone will have a nice looking and functioning laser for under a billion dollars.

If I could find a good deal on one, I would try it, but not for $140.00 or higher. Some say you can find them for around $100.00, not where I have been looking!

RE LASER LYTE, said id post again after 1000 rounds through my g23 with 40 cal barrel and 9mm barrel, the sight still works fine for me, does not block target., on and off fast with 10 mins practice, laser does not go out of adjustment, bla bla and by shoping around i got it new for 98 bucks, i am very happy with it and see no downside, also it will fir on any model or size Glock....

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...

Is this wider than the receiver? I am thinking about getting one, but concerned if it will cause problems fitting in my Crossbreed Supertuck?
