Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois GunNut, as Gary already said Pro size guns use full size grips. I'm going to assume your talking about factory installed Crimson Trace laser grips. It's possible your laser is shifting in the grip, I highly doubt that your grips are lose and shifting, the bushings should keep them from moving around even if the grip screws were loose. Another possibility is that the adjusting screws in the laser grip are loose and causing it to shift. I'd give Crimson Trace customer service a call and explain the trouble your having, you can't be the first guy to experience this.

Wink Me Too!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!


I'm kind of like you, I enjoy playing with the laser grip at the range. It is really fun when there is a bunch of smoke and dust kicked up in the range and you can see the beam all the way to the target!! I, too, am considering the addition of a set of night sights. (See the thread on night sights for links to various types.) If I do that, I may change out my grips, too! I really like some of the G10 grips I've seen.

I have a possibly dumb question. My Ultra CDPII came with night sights, I wanted both so I added Crimson Trace LG.
Why would you not want both modern sighting systems on your high dollar pistols?
If I am out after dark I turn on the grip switch but leave it off in the daytime to conserve battery life.

As the CT commercial shows, when the bad guy gets a laser in his face or on his chest, he quite probably will leave. Practical to have both.

Some say laser grips make shooters lazy in their technique. Others just want to change the look of the gun. I doubt I'll ever carry my Custom Crimson Carry as an EDC, it's just too bulky. So, as a range gun, I really don't need the laser. I'll probably leave them on, simply because the words Custom Crimson Carry II are engraved on the slide. A Pro or Ultra with laser sight would be perfect for a deterrent.
