    Unless there is a model I don't know about, yours doesn't have a rail. I'll double check and get back with pictures of a rail. You may need a laser that mounts to your trigger guard.

    I'm not going into the "why should yous" and why shouldn't yous". I don't like that argument.

    You don't have a rail. This is a rail, the flat ridged area underneath the barrel.

    Watcha need to do is google "guard mount laser" or "trigger guard mount laser".

    Also, I'm sure there will be several people stop in to offer advice on the best brands.

    Beware, a guard mount laser can make it difficult to find a holster that will fit it. Our members here can also help you around that problem. And, there is a worry of legal implications should the firearm be used in a self defense scenario.

    the advantage of the Crimson Trace grips is that you don't have to look for a hard to find holster to fit your pistol because of a front mounted laser. such an advantage does have it's cost.

    also i found a couple different rear laser sights for glocks around 100 and i was wondering if anyone knew if block sights would be able to fit in my bersa i know i can change my sights and i also know that just because something says its only for one thing that it doesn't always mean that it will only fit what its made for.

    That's OK. I was kinda hoping that u figured out how to make a rail mount laser fit on a non rail mount gun.

    Your other solution would be to get a second gun, don't think anyone here would argue that one lol

    Look man, you know me! I just googled "pistol with rail" and used the first one that came up. I know, I know... Using a GLOCK picture is like ripping a loud fart in a quiet library...
