laser sight

I have a glock 30 (45acp compact) and thinking of putting a laser on it. Not sure if the under the rail is better or the laser in the rear sight. Anyone have any of these?

Re: laser sight

I've always used the rail lasers myself with the light. I have the stream light ones for sale if you want one. Good luck.

Re: laser sight

check out holsters before the laser. not many out there will fit pistols with a light or laser mounted. most are higher end police duty type for duty sized guns not the compacts.

Re: laser sight

I have one in the rear sight on a Glock 19. It works and shoots OK, but it's not the easiest to turn on in a hurry.
You will be better served by one that turns when you grip your gun.

Re: laser sight

Get the crimson trace that mounts to the back of the grip. It turns on the instant you grip the pistol which is what you want. This leaves your rail open for a light if you desire or leaves your options for holsters endless.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: laser sight

Crimson trace is the way to go, have one on my carry gun ( Glock 27), and you can use your original holster.

Re: laser sight

Will the crimson trace make it bulkey? Are they easy to install?

Re: laser sight

I put a crimson trace laser on my Kahr MK 40. You simply replace the origional grips with the crimson trace grips, the presure switch is on the front of the grips so when you grip the gun your fingers curled around the grips turn on the light. While there is an of switch the company recommends you do not turn it to off, since you will not be using battery power unless you ae gripping the gun. The grips added no bulk to the gun although I wouldn't have mined as I have big hands. The gun fit perfectly in the holster I had before I installed the grips.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
