For anyone searching for LaserLyte QD Laser System, NightVisionSales.com just got a large shipment of both standard and superbright. They are shipping my superbright today.

The Superbright version is called "QD 635 Laser". They sell it for $99.95. UPS shipping brings it to $107.60, which appears to be a good price.

The standard version costs $79.95 before shipping.

Is there a significant differenct between the two?
I asked LaserLyte a similar question last week, including a question about use in the daylight. This was their reply:

For pistol purposes the standard is just fine in dusk to dawn operation. There are no lasers out there that are visible in pure sunny conditions with the exception of green lasers which we do not manufacture. We recently came out with a daylight target that gives you the capability to see the laser dot in any condition which retails for $6.95. The burn time on either laser is the same draw @ 1.5 hours continuous use which translates to 3-4 months on a normal basis. Please feel free to contact Centerfire Systems @ 859-873-2352. Thank you. Mary
Her answer was not very specific. I figure either is much better than none. I decided to purchase the super bright.

I contacted Centerfire by telephone (you cannot purchase from them through the web). The had no stock, so I searched until I found Night Vision.

and smaller (at least appears to be)
Correct me if I'm wrong here Old School, but the TRU GLO is a longer package than the LaserLyte. The laser body appears to it may extend further beyond the end of the muzzle than the QD Laser.

Also, it doesn't look like it will snap on and off. Can it be installed very quickly?

Please don't think that I'm knocking your TRU GLO product. It's very impressive for the price. I just want this laser immediately, and it seems to be missing a few features that are available in the more expensive models. (Let me know if I'm wrong on any of this.)

From what I have been told, the length of the units are about the same. The QD does have a quick release on the adapter, where the TRUGLO option does not. That said, the quick release on the QD is not very quick from my experience, because of the way is connects to the frame. Perhaps others have a different experience?

You will most likely need a rig that supports that has a pouch for the M3 too. This is a guess on my part.

I HAVE THE QD,,,DO NOT PLAN ON IT BEING QUICK ON/OFF WITH THE XD--TO PUT ON OR TAKE OFF IS A CHORE-- AND IT WON'T FIT THE SC---THE SAME MODEL FITS THE XD AND GLOCK--IT IS MAKE FOR THE GLOCK AND THE XD IS AN AFTER THOUGHT---IT IS A NICE SITE AND WORKS WELL--ON THE 4" AND 5" BUT PLAN ON LEAVING IT ON.

I have the QD, great little laser system, and as Old School said, "quick release" is more like "slightly faster release". Its a very snug fit, and requires a pretty good tug to pull it clear. As far as quick install, lets just say I'd not want to be trying to put it on in a high stress situation. :) Excellent quality, deadly accurate, but the concept of quick release is more a gimick I think than anything. Even though I have the QD, I might end up checking out the Tru Glo once Pistol-Gear has some in, but don't buy a QD just because you think it'll be a fast on/off in an urgent low light situation. :) Also, the QD does sit exactly even with the front of the slide when you're looking at it from the side, so if the Tru Glo ends up being the same length when mounted, should be very similar.
