Kel-Tec P-32 Laser Comparison: Crimson Trace, Aramlaser, Laserlyte

Howdy:

Any of y'all compared the Crimson Trace LG-430 ($200), ArmaLaser SB1 ($100) or TR1, and the Laserlyte ZK SML ($100)?

Which do you like and why?

One big advantage for the Crimson Trace series- there's no separate button to press to activate the laser. If you grip the gun, it's on. I rather doubt that separate button press is going to be all that usable in a high stress situation. If you have the time to hit the button, you have time to use the sights.

Both models of Armalaser he mentioned have that feature. They achieve it in a little different (presumably non-patent-infringing) way than CT does.

I had a Crimson Trace on an earlier P32 that I owned. What can I say? They are nothing but quality. I have the Armalaser TR1 on my current P32. I didn't want to pay $200 for a laser since the gun only cost $199. I have been very happy with the TR1.. I paid $105 for mine. It is bigger and thicker but works very well.

I also have the ArmaLaser TR-1 on my P32. Its been excellent for over a year now. I wondered how it would hold up, but I have had no issues with it, It works perfectly. I got mine for $99.
