Brighter Than my Red Guide Rod Laser Sights

by Edman45, from United States, OH Written on March 1, 2015
This Gen 4 Green Guide Rod laser is much brighter than my red laser sights. It is not as bright as my Crimson Trace green laser sight, on my S&W M&P Shield, but it's still bright enough to be seen in bright sunlight. I have a green guide rod laser sight on my Gen 3 Glock 32, and I like it so much that I got the Green Guide Rod laser sight for my Gen 4 Glock 19. The Gen 4 Green Guide Rod laser has a pulsating green laser, which I like, and it uses less battery power. The Gen 3 guide rod laser has a steady green laser beam. They are not interchangeable because the Gen 3, and the Gen 4 Glock guide rods, are made different, and are not interchangeable. The Green Guide Rod laser was easy to install. After firing 100 rounds, of 9mm +P, it seems to still be accurate. It's not something that you would want to use for bull's eye shooting at 25 yards, although it's easy to see at that distance, but it is great for self defense, combat type shooting....
Pros:
  • Brightness
  • easy to use.
  • Easy to install,
  • Totally contained inside the gun
Cons:
  • price
  • Price of replacement batteries
Best Used for:
  • closer-range encounters
  • Self defense
  • Combat use
  • close range target shooting
Would recommend: Yes

LaserMax Green Guide Rod for Glocks

by Greg, from United States, UT Written on January 14, 2015
I just purchased a Green LaserMax Gen 4 Guide Rod for my Glock 19 Gen 4. If you have ever field stripped and cleaned your Glock, you will find this product very easy to install. The instructions are simple to follow for someone with experience, and the whole install process should not take more than 5 minutes.

For an inexperienced person, LaserMax could improve the single-page instructions with clearer pictures that could better illustrate the install process.

The product works great and the best part is that it does not change the profile/size of the pistol....
Pros:
  • High Quality. Very Sturdy.
Cons:
  • Expensive
Would recommend: Yes

Green Laser

by Shooter, from United States, TX Written on August 29, 2014
Just installed new Green laserMax for my Glock 19 Gen 4, Very easy installation, most anyone with limited skills can perform this task. 20yd hits right on. Activation button is a little hard to engage.
The Miss, Laser is very weak, tried new batteries and still weak Compared to Crimson Trace, weak but usable. Can not see it in the daytime outside as with some other brands. Overall its does what it was designed for, Quick target acquisition, thief deterrent....
Pros:
  • Accurate
  • easy installation
  • fit all holsters
Cons:
  • week laser
  • activation button hard to use
Best Used for:
  • Personal Defense
Would recommend: Yes

great idea, jury still out

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NJ Written on October 12, 2013
Great concept that should work great--if everything works right. Unit came with recoil spring too weak to consistently return G17 gen4 to battery. Lasermax customer service was great, sent me two heavier replacement springs and new captivators. Gun function problem is now fixed, but laser is aligned too high, throwing rounds 6" low at 50 feet. Gotta now send it back to Lasermax for realignment. Hopefully it'll work out. Tension on on/off switch seems insufficient as laser sometimes goes on or off while shooting without touching the switch. I'll try bending the slide lock spring to increase tension, maybe that'll work. I want this thing to work because it's a great concept but I'm not there yet. The native green laser is more bluish and not as brilliant as the conventional green lasers from Viridian or Streamlight, but still quite visible. Cost of ownership may be high as recoil spring and battery cap should be replaced every few thousand rounds, and new batteries are expensive. Crimson Trace Lasergrip is far more cost effective (cheaper, free batteries, user adjustable), with the advantage of instinctive activation, but the disadvantages of changed grip shape and point of aim shift with changes in grip pressure.
Pros: ingenious concept, great customer service, consistent alignment, no effect on gun profile
Cons: came misaligned and with defective parts and not as bright as conventional green lasers...
