Design is pretty good, easy to install, seems of quality build, but....
Laser is about 3.5-4 inches off to the left at about 9 yards and at about 7 yards it's off to the left by about 2.5-3 inches. As far as I can see there is no way to adjust that. Seems a bit low as well but not by much.
It's too bad because I really like the design of the sight, it doesn't add any bulk, but it being this much off doesn't make it really all that useful. Right now I'm struggling if I should try to return it or not. I wish it could be adjusted.
lasermax review from a g22
by cousin leroy
I purchased a lasermax guide rod laser for my duty weapon several years ago. As stated with others the aiming point was WAY OFF. I contacted lasermax directly and I was told to send the weapon and laser to the mother company and they returned my weapon with a close enough to adjust to point of aim. After it was returned I still use it to this day. Battery life was not an issue. Two thumbs up!
Contrary to another reviewer, I find that my Lasermax Guide Rod laser (pulsing green) is dead on at normal tactical range, and only a tiny amount off at about 20 yards, which is about the maximum I'd personally want to engage a target with using a handgun. Shooting for body mass center, it's well within accuracy needs.
The design is slick, using the slide stop to engage the laser, and most of my Kydex holsters (of which I have a fair quantity/variety) fit snugly enough that it shuts the laser off when I reholster, which is a benefit for me. No special holsters to fit your gun when equipped with a laser is also a BIG plus.
The only downside to me is the way that the battery compartment cap fits using a rubber o-ring and has to be twisted in just right. However, after a few tries, it becomes a little easier to do. Practice makes semi-perfect.
TIP: Buy the batteries off of Amazon or eBay, not a gun site - they're about a quarter of the cost that way (sorry, GS).
