    I want a laser, but for now I'm working on the basics. Someday I'll get one.

    The benefits of the internal laser is it will fit any holster, don't need a holster dedicated to it; but, these days we have excellent kydex benders who could make a holster for your laser equipped handgun. Some laser manufactures also sell holster made for your gun and their laser.

    What laser are you looking at? I like the Crimson Trace brand, because they have a three year warranty. They have green lasers on the way.
    The Viridian C5L is nice, green laser and white light. Plus they have a holster that when you draw the weapon the laser is activated.
    There are a lot of choices. Let us know what you decide.

    I own both a CrimsonTrace and a Lasermax. I actually like the CrimsonTrace better because you don't have to worry about accidental activation, it has a steady beam versus pulsating beam. Drawbacks; the CrimsonTrace doesn't fit some holsters with a thumbreak and beam gets fuzzy when gun gets covered with sweat and dirt can't seem to clean window even with cleaner and qtip. The Lasermax has accidentally activated in holsters and killed the batteries twice on me and the pulsating beam annoys me.

    As you can see no telltale sign on 33 takedown lever is the switch it sticks out slightly more than factory one on both sides.

    Brother got a GI stealth that clips on the rail and works like the clipdraw. Tried it but was nervous about the exposed trigger too. On the other hand a bunch of the clipdraws are out there and I haven't heard of any ND's.
     
  14. Good to see another Bryan on here with his name spelled correctly!!! :)
     
  15. here is a stupid question, how does the internal laser activate? I never see anything in pictures. I have also heard that the spring gets very dirty during a range day and becomes useless until cleaned. Most people suggest using the OEM to train then putting it back in.

    I have always wanted one, the price tag just gets me.
     
  16. I've always wondered the same thing too....

    Ok guys. I had the same questions till I got one. The unit is drop in and easy to install you change out the takedown latch which now will slide left and right to turn on and off. The latch has detents to stay on or off. I've never had a problem with the spring seizing up and don't see how it could. Although I haven't fired any more than maybe 100 at a time. The 31 is a lot easier and fun to shoot.
