When Crimson Trace was first designing the G-series Lasergrip we found that our LG-617, designed for the Glock 17 full size frames, also fit the wider Glock-20/21 frames, but just the 3rd generation 20/21 frames, ONLY 3rd GENERATION. My advice, go to your local gun shop make sure you talk to knowledgeable people and see if your glock is 3rd generation. The crimson trace laser grips do not fit the G-36 or 20 either.

Why not just buy ammo with the laser money and practice?

Lasers are a crutch.

canebrake-
Have you watched the Crimson Trace video ?

The video explains how the laser can be used as a teaching tool by instructors. The video also makes a good case for the laser's practicality in a real life shootout.

Jim Cirillo was in favor of Crimson Trace.

I think you go too far in dismissing lasers as a crutch.

canebrake-
If you had watched the video or read up on lasers, you would know that you don't have to trust your life to a battery. If the dot were not to appear, you would simply use the iron sights.

If you use the laser as an instructing tool, your life is not likely to hang in the balance, anyway.

If you don't want to trust your life to a battery, I hope you never need to be fitted out with a Pacemaker. ( LOL)

You can order the Crimson Trace Video, "Shots In The Dark" ( approx. 75 minutes ) from Paladin Press - Publishers of the Action Library but Crimson Trace has been known to give it away to prospective customers. The company can be found at Crimson Trace: Laser Gun Sights For Shooters or 800-442-2406.

I do not own a laser but I do have a set of tritium night sights. I consider the tritium sights a waste of time, having tried them out in a darkened room and had a hard time telling which dot was the front sight.

It is good to be skeptical of new technology. Still, it pays to check that technology out with an open mind. NOTE- Not long ago, the military thought scopes were only for sniper rifles but today, they are on every M-16 and troops are hitting their targets.

Rent, don't get me wrong, I respect your choice of aiming aids. If it blows your skirt up, go for it.

I think a laser would be good for a nightstand HD weapon but I can not justify the expense.

IMHO Lasers make for a Lazy Shooter.
