LaserLyte Ruger LCP Side Mount Laser

posted on December 21, 2011

Measuring 3.65 inches in length, 0.65 inches wide, and 0.380 inches tall, and weighing only 0.25 ounces, LaserLyte’s Ruger LCP Side Mount Laser adds little mass to the diminutive pistol, yet markedly enhances sighting in low-light conditions.

Powered by four micro-cell batteries, eight of which are included, the Class IIIA 5mW red laser can be programmed to either pulsate or remain on by depressing and holding the “on” button for six seconds. Tapping the button activates the laser instantly.

The laser’s auto-off feature activates a warning pulse after five minutes of constant run time, and one minute later the laser turns off. Depressing the switch during the warning pulse resets the laser. Battery life is five hours of constant on, or 10 hours in pulse mode.

The unit is easily attached to the gun with the two provided extended pins. Allen wrenches are included for installation, changing the batteries, and adjusting windage and elevation. In addition to the Ruger LCP, the Side Mount Laser also fits Kel-Tec’s .32 ACP- and .380 ACP-chambered handguns using the included frame adapter. The laser also allows the use of most nylon pocket holsters. Price: $100.
