    CRIMSON TRACE LG 301
    FOR 1911 PISTOLS

    Hi guys,
    I have been using the Laser Grips LG 301 with over molded rubber and dual activation on both grip panels, for several years now.
    I installed them in my Colt Govt .45 in stainless steel, and I have been happy with their performance through several hundreds rounds.
    I particularly like the position of the master switch in the left panel, the master switch is used to block the electricity to the laser, in case you want to shoot during the day.
    The over molded panels and front strap are very comfortable to use, making a pistol that already adapted to my hand like a glove, even better.

    This is my home defense pistol, and it is never more than a few feet away from me most of the time, it is at night in my night stand next to a Borealis 1050 lumens flashlight, the combination of the powerful .45 caliber Federal 230 Hydra-Shock, and laser grips combined with the powerful 1050 lumens of the Borealis, make this combo an ideal night fighting tool.

    THE STAINLESS STEEL GOVERMMENT .45 WITH THE CRINSOM TRACE LASER GRIPS, THE BOREALIS 1050 LUMENS WITH CRENELATED BEZEL AND QUICK DETACH SWIVEL, TWO CHIP MC CORMICK SHOOTING STAR MAGAZINES AND A BOX OF 230 GRAIN FEDERAL HYDRA-SHOCK AMMO.




    I have been shooting .45s for forty years; I had regular Govt, Commanders, Colt systema 1927s and HAFDASAs. I am very good at shooting them; however the Crimson Trace Laser Grips and plenty of training using a dummy round and dry firing have me shooting better than ever.
    As an example I can shoot from the hip and hit what I am shooting at up to 15 yards a 100 % of the time, thanks to the Laser, I am sure with more practice I can extend the range to 20 yards or more.
    The best thing when shooting from the hip is unrestricted vision, you are aware of all your surrounding and avoid the tunnel vision that happens when you are using sights and have the pistol and hand in front of you blocking most anything else.




    I also have the LG 305 in my model 36 Smith & Wesson, those grips really help the short 2 barrel, the little Chief Special was always a hard gun to shoot well at increased distances, not any more with the Laser Grips, as I am getting good groups at fifteen yards.

    I wish Crimson Trace will consider to make grips for two of my favorite revolvers, one is a Colt Anaconda in .44 Magnum with a 4 barrel that fit perfectly in the front pocket of my fly fishing waders (good insurance against brown bears when fishing in Alaska) and the other is a Ruger Redhawk with a 7 inch barrel.

    All the best

    Very good question, I also look forward to the answer.

    I am sure for point shooting the laser works great.
    spc :)

  5. Sorry, not trying to hijack the thread, but felt I had to chime in with something I didn't even think about when I got some CT's. I had a Glock 26 and couldn't shoot it accurately at all. I got some CT grips for it, figuring they would let me dry-fire practice and learn to shoot it better. All good in theory. I installed them and they worked perfectly. Then I realized the problem... I shoot lefty and my thumbtips rested exactly in front of the laser when I used my normal grip. D'Oh! I tried to adjust my grip, but couldn't find one that was comfortable where my thumbs didn't get in the way of the laser. I never had any problems as far as functioning with the grips and am not dogging CT by any means; just thought I'd throw this out there for any lefties. Or, any righties considering shooting off hand with the lasers. Just something to consider, since I didn't before I plunked down $180something. :o

    Yes it does. It glows red. LaserMax has a recoil spring/plug replacement, sloves the problem.

    Assuming you like lasers.

    Try the LaserMax laser sight. Installs IN the gun and takes the place of the recoil spring guide...beam comes out from right under the muzzle. Turn it on with a poke of your finger against the takedown lever and the beam pulsates. Very interesting, intimidating scene. Cheaper than the $180, too, as I recall.

    It will not matter as I only activate the laser when I am ready to shoot and have the finger inside the trigger guard.
