Crimson trace issue
 
I have a Kimber custom covert 2 took it to the range today shot about 400 rounds. No issues what so ever except for my laser grip. It would dim or not turn on at all. Repositioned my grip changed the batteries and same result. Got home works for a couple seconds or so then goes dim again or not at all. Anyone else have this problem?

Call the manufacturer.

Same problem with mine. Otherwise the pistol appears flawless at 500 rounds down the spout.

Throw that stupid laser away and learn to shoot your gun.

To me it's just a gadget. But it was paid for.

I'm not going to throw away something that came with the gun. If I didn't know how to use standard sights and had a laser that would be one thing, but there's more then 1 way to shoot a gun as long as you have a back up.

I would call them and see how they want for you to handle the return for repair or replacement. They will stand by their product.

Lots of guns come with lasers nowadays. My lcp did. Constructive help is always appreciated ;)

I have a Kimber with Crimson trace grips and mine did the same thing. I called Crimson and they sent a new pair immediately. When they arrived, I placed the defective pair in the same package attached the prepaid shipping label and dropped them off in the mail.

Could not have been more pleased with their CS.

I just want to pose a scenario here... Picture you're in an active shooter situation at a movie theater which is dark. You've got your legitimate carry sidearm that does not have a "stupid laser" it is dark & a few occupied rows of people watching the movie separate you from the suspect. Target aquisition in the dark is next to impossible. Would you rather "have and not need than to need and not have" that stupid laser? In the above scenario I don't think that has anything to do with the ability to shoot. There at many other scenarios as well, however even if the whites came on the temporary blindness is good enough to confuse anybody especially under the pressure of an active situation.
