Big plus for home/self defense handgun

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, DC Written on October 27, 2012
Simple installation as advetised. The cast replacement slide stop lever is not finely machined like the SA 1911 externals, but it works, is not really noticeable and the matte stainless finish blends well. The only external addition to the gun's profile is the small black plastic tear drop shape switch on each side. Switch seems a little stiff but I will give it some use before attempting any adjustments. The ability to get the gun on target from awkward positions where you can't easily get a sight picture speaks for itself.
Pros: Minimal external profile
Cons: No green laser option...
Would recommend: Yes

Poor quality, poor company

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on January 11, 2011
Follow up to a previous post: I had three of these sights, all quit working right. The third one quit working AT ALL after only 10 shots. Then LaserMax won't refund my money, only offer yet another exchange. Why would I want another one of these? And for well over $300?
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Doesn't hold up...
Would recommend: No

Not reliable

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 17, 2010
The sight started out great, but after a few shots, or when you shake the gun, the size and shape of the laser dot changes. Not very useful. For the price, I expected a much better product....
Would recommend: No

Won't stay in alignment

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on May 12, 2010
When it works, it's beautiful. But I'm about to send back my THIRD one of these, because after only 10 shots, something comes apart inside in the optics. Went from a pinpoint of light visible at 20 yards to a smear of red light, visible only to about 2 feet. Won't hold up to the recoil of my .45, with standard ammo.
Pros: Easily visible
Cons: Won't stay in alignment...
Would recommend: Yes
