Others have complained about there being inadequate adjustment room to zero the laser. I experienced the same problem.
My biggest complaint, though, is that Truglo appears to be intentionally misrepresenting this laser. Try as I might, I could find nothing in TruGlo's literature or the product description on Amazon about the output of this laser. They describe it as a "powerful 520nm green laser." NM is the FREQUENCY of the laser, not the output, but I hoped it was just poor marketing on the part of Truglo and ordered it anyway. After all, virtually every other laser sight on the planet has an output of 5mW, the legal maximum.
Green laser sights cost roughly twice as much as red laser sights. They require a lot more power, so they rip through batteries like they're going out of style. However, there is ONE compelling reason to shell out the extra cash for a green laser: Visibility. Assuming the same output, green lasers are far more visible than red lasers. Imagine my surprise when I turned it on and discovered that it was far less bright and far less visible than any of my red laser sights. (I have six of them.)
The reason turned out to be simple: While all my other lasers output at 5mW, this one outputs at less than 1mW. You won't find that anywhere in Truglo's sales hype. You'll find it in their manual after you've already shelled out your cash. And they don't even say how much less than 1mW. No wonder they were able to make this thing so tiny.
Fortunately, I bought this through Amazon, so I was able to return it with no hassles. I replaced it with a Crimson Trace CMR-206. The CMR-206 isn't quite as as compact or attractive as the Truglo, but it still fits sub-compact pistols with no problems. It's a well-built green laser at a frequency of 515nm. While you probably won't notice any difference in the color, 515nm should technically be easier to see than the 520nm in the Truglo. It's far brighter than any of my red lasers, all of which are also Crimson Trace, and well worth the extra $35.
In conclusion, if your primary criterion for picking a laser is size, the Truglo is the one to get. If it's anything else, steer clear -- especially if company ethics mean anything to you. I don't write reviews often. If Truglo had concentrated on the positive aspects of their laser sight, I would have sent it back, but remained silent -- but there are few things that tick me off as much as intentionally misleading marketing, and trying to obfuscate the difference between frequency and output is one of the worst (or best, depending upon how you look at it) examples of this I've ever seen.
After taking it to the range and zeroing the laser to my round impact group I have found this laser to be perfect for my gun and it works well with my Remora holster. I have been carrying it concealed and the laser adds very little weight to the gun. The only downside to this laser is that it gets dirty easier with the shorter barrel guns (3-3.5" barrels). But, if you clean your gun regularly it is not an issue. I would definitely recommend this laser to anyone with a new XD Mod.2 as it fits perfect and is lightweight! The laser is also extremely bright!
The first range trip, it went OK. I put around 100 rounds though my 9mm PT111 G2 and it held up fairly well. More or less accurate to the point of impact.
My second range trip, it fell right off after a single magazine. I assumed that it just had gotten loosened and pocketed it. When I got home, it looks like the recoil had managed to pull the screw free, stripping the threads (!). I can't attach it to my pistol anymore. I had read reviews of this being caused by bad installations - it's aluminum so over torquing can strip it - so when I installed it, was very careful with not using too much torque when I attached it, but I guess it didn't matter anyway.
I'm going to try contacting Trueglo and seeing how warranty support is. If they make it right I will revisit my rating.
EDIT 06-10-16: Truglo was responsive with sending me a replacement product. The replacement has not had the same problem that the first one had. I have increased the review to 3 stars to reflect this. I think the product design could be better - instead of tapping the mount, they could implement a recessed nut instead to prevent the issue I had. Additionally, it could be a lot, lot brighter. It works fine on a darkened range but you're going to struggle to see it in daylight.
Although their customer service was good, ultimately I don't think I would buy this again.
