    Yet they still don’t make flat bottom grips to go with magazine wells.

    Regarding pistol laser sights: are they a gimmicky mall ninja toy or are some brands genuinely rugged, reliable and accurate enough to be used on someones CCW or home defense pistol?

      I think they are, I have a crimson trace “laserguard” on my carry pistol for about 4 years now and I like it. If you have a light or laser on your carry gun you need a laser or light with the auto activation like these so you don’t have to think about turning it on or the battery’s running out.
      The laser makes it very quick and convenient to aim and in very very low light it acts as a crappy flashlight. Just enough to identify your target. It is nice to only have to focus on your target and not your front sight and still get a accurate shot off. I think it is a good benefit that is not talked about much.
      It obviously is not a substitute for shooting with sights and training with and without it.
      Mine and I believe all of them are adjustable for height and windage and hold zero well. Only time I’ve had to rezero mine was taking it off for cleaning and battery changes which has only been twice in the 4 years I’ve had it.
      To sum it up yes I think it is a very good option for conceal carry, and most people would probably realize just how much they jerk the trigger when they see the laser bouncing around during their squeeze lol.

    I agree with Dan. It’s a damn joke they don’t make grips for 1911’s with magwell’s but make three different kinds of simulated wood.

  4. Been waiting two decades for Crimson trace to do something for double stack 1911’s.
