Yes. When shooting left-handed, the laser is activated by the finger tips of the middle and ring finger with a normal grip on the weapon. When shooting right-handed, the palm of your hand will activate the laser. Another technique used to activate the laser right handed is to apply slight pressure with the finger tips of the right hand (as if the switch were on the other side of the weapon). This will pull the palm of your hand against the activation switch.
Yes. The master on-off switch is located at the base of the grip panel. The back position is off, forward is on. Leaving the master switch in the on position will not affect battery life unless the activation switch is also pressed. The Smith & Wesson J-Frame Model does not have a master switch.
1911 and Ruger MKII LaserGrips are virtually identical in thickness to that of the original stock grips. The Beretta model LaserGrips are only .030” thicker than stock grips.
How is the laser adjusted?
A two screw alignment system is used to adjust for windage and elevation. The adjustment screws are located behind the laser aperture. Using a .028” allen wrench (supplied), turn the screws as required to adjust the beam.
As is true with any laser sight currently available, the range will be drastically reduced in bright daylight conditions. Our 633nm diode provides the maximum output current technology and federal regulations allow. Its effective range in bright sunlight is from 12 to 50 feet depending on the type of target and other conditions. At night it is visible up to 1000 yards.
Full three year warranty on all components and workmanship.
Yes. Simply remove the existing grip panels and install the LaserGrips as you would any other grips.
Two #2032 Lithium cells are supplied with each unit and provide over 6 hours of on time use, as well as a five year shelf life. They are inexpensive and can be found in most stores.
LaserGrips use a class IIIa diode, which is regulated by the FDA. The FDA classifies it as non-hazardous to the eyes under momentary exposure. It would therefore be extremely unlikely for any permanent eye damage to occur, as the natural blink reflex would avert any prolonged exposure if the laser beam were to cross your path of vision.
There are after market products available (such as the Pearce Grips) that can be used in conjunction with LaserGrips to achieve the same effect as wraparound grips.
Water will not affect the laser, even if it is totally submerged. We recommend that you clean the battery compartment within 8 hours and make sure no debris has collected on the laser lens.
Lasers have come to the forefront and are winning a solid place in the firearms industry for both law enforcement and civilian applications.
Lasers provide instant visual feedback to expedite the training process for the novice as well as experienced shooter. Laser equipped weapons add a level of intimidation and give the shooter a psychological advantage when faced with a potential firefight. But above all, it is just plain FUN to target shoot and compete using a high quality laser sight.
Yes. The laser equipped weapon will still fit into any standard holster.
