LG-445 or LG-448

This is a discussion on LG-445 or LG-448 within the SA-XD/XD(M) Accessories forums, part of the XD Talk category; This should actually be a LG-445 vs a LG-446 for a XD9 and or a XD9sc. Sorry for the goof. Anyone have experience with either ...

Anyone have experience with either or both. I don't really see the benefit the LG-448 gives. As I see it it limits your holster options but it does look to be slightly cheaper.

Maybe give me some ideas on your buying choices.

Thanks

The 446 has a master on-off IIRC and you can also use your finger to cover the beam if needed.

The LG-445 fit the .45 ACP and nothing else according to their website. The LG-446 is the same thing that fits the others.

As stated above, the 445 is only for the XD-45acp, the 446 fits all other XD caliber pistols except the 45acp. This is because all calibers except the 45acp share the same frame. The 45acp has a larger frame. Neither laser requires any change to fit most holsters. Both designs are installed mainly on the grip portion of the pistol. This leaves the rail free for mounting other accessories like a light.
The LG-448 is a universal fit design that will mount on all XD and all XDm pistols. Because this is a rail mounted laser, it will require holster modifications to fit properly. Since it is rail mounted, no other rail mount accessory can be installed at the saame time.

When i get one, I want the lasergrip, because I won't have to have my holster modified to fit it. Its more expensive, but at least I won't have to send my holster back to get it redone.

I bought my crossbread and LG-448 at the same time. I really like the LG-448. Still waiting on the holster.

I like the under the barrel laser because to me it just seems like it would be more accurate at various ranges. Instead of adjusting it left, right up and down.. you would just adjust up and down with the 448.

So i guess, ask yourself if you mind buying another holster and if you think you'll want to attach anything else to the rail.

You should have thought about this sooner - You just missed the 50 Mail in rebate!

The LG-448 is definitely on my list of accessories to buy. I just don't understand why more holster manufacturers haven't come up with a viable option for these and other lasers, lights, and rail-mounted accessories. Seems like there's a fortune to be made there.

I have the grip on my XD9 service. I prefer the grip as opposed to the hairs becuz; I can mount my stl1 on at night with lil hassle, almost all my holsters still worked. The ones that hindered proper bolstering I took the dremel to the kydex and customized holsters very easily. And regardless of grip or rail mount, both with need adjustment for windage and elevation. The 446 does fatten the grip a lil. But not enough to bother me.
