STAY AWAY FROM THIS ITEM - LEGIT FEEBACK PLEASE READ!
on May 25, 2013
I got this item fast, I was highly impressed at how easy it was to install. The laser is very accurate for me and actually helped me get better at shooting. After less than a month of shooting with it I started having issues. My laser would come on even when the switch was off. Then my slide would not rest in the proper position. I attempted to contact lasermax since I was 2 days over the 30 day mark and they ignored all my emails. I attempted to call and could never get a live person on the phone. I finally gave up and contacted amazon, they are sending me a replacement but this item has such a high failure rate it will probably fail again.
1. There is cheap plastic in the housing for the battery. If you shoot more than 100 rounds in a day the plastic will start to to show signs of heat damage, I believe this is what ultimately lead to the failure.
2. The spring causes a lot of jamming. Glocks are very hard to jam with any type of ammo, since I installed this I've gotten at least 10 jams where I've never had a jam before.
Amazon is amazing! Even though I was past the 30 day mark they sent me a brand new lasermax laser for my glock and allowed me to send my damaged one back. When the new one arrives in 2 days I will take a picture to compare what the old one looked like compared to the new one after a few 100 rounds. If you're the type of person that likes to shoot, stay away from this product. For the pricetag it is very cheaply made.
So got my new lasermax and the battery arrived dead. I cannot even test it to see if it works. I am completely out of options and the only thing I can do is return it for a "partial refund". For a product that is $300+ you would think it would have better quality control. There is a ring on the front of the laser that goes into the guide rail hole at the front of the slide. This metal ring is really thin and will wear out fast. I highly suggest staying away from this product. Even if it works for you it will die within a few months of use. The thing is built like crap.
Amazon informed me that they're going to give me a one time full price refund for the product given my issues I've had with the product and based on other reviews on here it just seems like this product has a high failure rate. Amazon saves me again!
