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.

ONLY UPSIDE:

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.

UPDATE 7/7/2013:

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!

*** Please make sure you do not have a GEN 4 GLOCK. This will only fit GEN 1-3 Model GLOCKS!

I am torn as to what to write here. The product installed quickly and easily as advertised. The laser operates as expected. My problem is that while firing my first 10 shots, my gun had 3 misfeeds. I have owned this gun for 20 years and it has NEVER had a misfeed (advantages of Glock and why I buy them). I shot another 20 or so rounds and did not have a problem. My last 5 shots were rapid-fire with no misfeed.

My second concern is accuracy. My shots were not close to my aim point; however, that could be the lack of experience with the product. I am looking to get a vise to test this.

Overall I really like this product. I gave it middle-of-the-road rating because of the concerns above. After I shoot more, perhaps my concerns will be alleviated.

I purchased the laser in December, 2012.
I installed the laser, the gun jammed 3 times in 100 rounds.
I removed the laser, the gun fired 100 rounds, NO JAMs.
I returned the product to Amazon as defective...

I read all the prior reviews and HOPED Lasermax had solved the jam problems.
I loved the integrated solution.
But, I cannot see spending $300+ on an add-on accessory that appears to cause the gun to jam.

I hope the lasermax people read these reviews, and address the problems with the item.

It is physically a different spring. The lasermax uses a round wire spring, the Glock OEM is a flat wire spring. So it would seem logical that since the construction of the parts are different, that the spring performance might be different as well.

Too bad, because it was a cool integrated solution.

Unit was very easy to install. However, when I took it to the range, after only 48 rounds shot, the unit stopped entirely and would not produce any laser. With what I spent on this unit (very expensive), I expected better. Amazon.com's service was very good and my money was returned to me. However, I do not want another one of these from this company.

I bought 3 of these, one for G19, one for g22 and one for 1911. I was only satisfied with one. The 1911 one was crap, laser was not a dot, but a huge 1.5" splotch at just 15 ft. and the slide release was made so poorly it took all my might with two thumbs to release the slide. I didn't even try to shoot with it, just sent it back. The one for the G19 was about 3" off at 20'(not horrible) but jams the bullets about 1 per clip. It NEVER jammed before installing. You can feel the drag on the guide rod as you pull back the slide and slide does not seat fully when released(guide rod laser too thick?). I will keep using it, hopefully it will eventually break in, but doubtful. The one for the G22 was fairly accurate and did perform as expected. These are cheaply made and quite expensive for what they are. NOT WORTH THE MONEY! I would look at other brands of lasers. It seems you have about a 33% chance of getting what you expect, and still you pay out the ass. WEAK!

As an owner of many other guns with lasers, and wasting a lot of rounds down range to sight in, this exceeded my expectations. Laser is as noted within 2" of target at 20 Yards, at 15 Yards it is spot on ! Thanks LaserMax

Update:

After a year of use the laser turns off all the time and the front cups that hold the spring in place have have been destroyed by the recoil.

Lasermax promises out of the box accuracy. They deliver. Easy to install. Easy to use. Not good long range, but dead on out to 25 yards. A must have for all Glocks.

I bought this for my Glock 19 after reading all the reviews on it and decided to take a chance on it. I was able to install it in less than 5 minutes but that's about as good as it got. The laser will not turn off and if you can get it to turn off by chance, the slightest movement turns it back on. For the money this cost I would expect a lot better quality. I would not recommend this item to anyone.
