I have a HK P2000 that you do not make a guide rod laser for, however it does have an accessory rail on it. What are some of your better rail mounted lasers and which options will work for my smaller handgun. Also because the rail is a proprietary rail (gotta love those Germans) does your company offer an adapter or will an aftermarket one work? I also need holster options for this gun and others I can see interchanging with this laser.

Thanks!

And yes, the Micro laser features both a pulsing and non-pulsing laser options! :P

The human eye is evolved to detect motion faster than inactivity. This is why emergency vehicle and navigation lights are pulsed rather than steady. This increased visibility is built into many LaserMax lasers. The pulsing beam enables the shooter to visually distinguish the laser and obtain a sight picture much more rapidly during a stress fire scenario. As an added bonus, the pulsing laser helps preserve battery life, an important feature on laser systems with the smallest batteries (such as the Guide Rod Lasers for mini-Glocks). Despite these inherent advantages, many customers have expressed that they simply prefer a steady or “constant on” laser beam. In response to that demand, LaserMax now offers the non-pulsed configuration on select lasers that feature a larger battery capacity, such as the CenterFire and rail-mounted systems.

LaserMax's signature Controlled Activation™ comes in the form of a simple, ambidextrous toggle switch. Although it varies in size and style depending on the model, all LaserMax products feature this ambidextrous switching mechanism. Why? Because when you are operating from concealment, you don't want to give the bad guy the upper hand! Controlled activation offers a clear advantage, enabling the shooter to unholster his or her firearm and assume a defensive grip without prematurely turning the laser on. A laser that comes on automatically could lead to a potentially risky reveal of the shooters position.
