I just bought an hk usp .45 tactical and a gemtech blackside suppressor, was wondering if there is a decent rail-mount laser for these that is reasonable. It doesn't have to be military-grade quality, as all it'll be used for is popping armadillos/coyotes/wild hogs etc., after dark, at close range. NOT gonna spend $200+ on something that just basically shines a red beam, but i don't wanna go the NCstar/BSA route either. Is there a good adjustable one somewhere in between?

Nope. With lasers you either get very high quality or absolute crap.

There are no good deals to be had with lasers: either you buy a cheap one that doesn't work like it's supposed to (losing zero easily) or you will end up spending allot for something like a Laseraim etc.

I'm another that agrees that you get what you pay for when it comes to weapon lasers. I've tried many different styles and brands but always ended up with either a Lasermax or Crimson Trace on my weapons.

Think you re goin get mostly the same answer. I have the Laser Max on a Sig P239 SAS and Crimson Trace on a Colt Defender and on a Kimber Tactical Ultra II.......I would recommend either, however, I like the CT better. Reason I used the Laser Max on the Sig is because I didn't want to change the wood grips.

Yeah wifey just let me drop $300 on a new lasermax guide rod (replaces the guide rod spring for most exclent accurate beam eveyrtime; no need to adjust)

I say..walmart has one for $18 that I put on my powerline pellet gun and that works fairly fine for me..uses the standard rail mount..if anything try that

I love the CT laser grips on my G19 and have heard good things about Lasermax as well.

How does the Streamlight TLR-2 compare? I've seen a few people here using it. I like the idea of a light + laser combination, but is it in the same league (quality & customer service) as CT and Lasermax?

LaserMax also has a new unit out called the UniMax that will fit on the rails, and also has it's own rail to add a light if needed. Midway is selling them for about $162...

I paid 350 for lasermax in G19. After 15+ shots you have to clean powder residue off of lens with Qtip and alcohol to be able to see dot. If you hit a dirt road too fast switch gets bumped turning laser on resulting in $13 of dead batteries (in Uncle Mikes felt holster). They are however very high quality and very accurate, no adjustment provided and none needed. Ab
