New Laser site from Crimson Trace, The Railmaster

Hi,

This is a new Laser made to mount on any tactical rail. I bought mine from Optics Planet, cost $129 and free shipping. It's a quality piece that was easy to install on the piccatiny rail on my Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm. I just got back from the range and it worked great.

Here is a link to Optics Planet:

http://www.opticsplanet.net/crimson-...unt-laser.html

Here is a link to Crimson Trace that gives a good description of the Rail Master:

http://www.crimsontrace.com/products...rifles/01-9690

FYI,

I had a Lasermax laser on my PX4, it cost about the same but crappped out after 500 rounds, it stopped holding zero. I got my money back. I was glad to find the Rail Master, I think Crimson Trace has the best reputation in the laser department, and I was pleasently surprised by the price.

So Optics Planet actually does SHIP things? I guess I will keep waiting for my order from two weeks ago. Nice purchase!

They were slow with me too, might have taken two weeks for mine to arrive, but the cheap price and free shipping made it easier to live with.

That money you saved is called customer service.

I hate how the market allows for poor customer service. From oil changes at the dealership, to dining out and beyond, the art if customer service is dying.

Please follow up on this post after you spend some time at the range. I am really interested in how well it shows up in outdoor daylight and at what range it is easily visible too.

Thanks

Found it at Bud's Guns for $106 plus $11 for insured shipping. If the reviews here come back +, it'll be strapped to an SR9c.

Don't they make a Laserguard for the PF9? I know they do for most of the other small framed pistols. Can't go wrong with CT, they work very well. Use a dry Q-Tip to keep them clean, wet with anything is a pain to correct.

I have the Lasermax rail laser like this and it has been good. From the things I heard about Crimson Trace I would expect this to be good as well.

Most consider Crimson Trace to be the standard. Lasermax to be secondary. Both may work though, my experience is only with CT.

Got one of these for a pistol-grip Mossberg .410 (wife's request), but had to slip it onto a Glock 19 first. Works well. For a pistol I still prefer the version fitted to the gun, but this is a great laser that fits most anything you got with a rail. It's small enough for a handgun but can also stick to an AR/AK or shotgun with ease.

Setup was just minutes and all the parts are there, provided you have a rail.

I agree with others that CT is a great brand. Cannot speak to the others, but the difference in price is not enough for me to experiment. I have two CT lasers and would easily get a third if I needed one.

If the G19 was holstered with the CMR-201 on it, do you think it's easy to accidentally turn the laser on? I can't tell from what I've seen about it on-line so far.

Probably. Activation is side-mounted. I didn't try holstering the G19 with the CT; I knew it wouldn't fit.
