Just got my TruGlo laser today... Thanks OldSchool!!


First Impressions:

Easy installation.

Looks pretty true at 10 yards right now with no adjustment. Lines up with the sights.



The retaining screw that bites the frame will leave a little hole.

The pressure switch is worthless for an XD because it is rather thick and has an 8inch cord.

Mounting and housing isnt very heavy duty but feels pretty stable.


Cannot complain for 40 dollars thus far. If it holds its point of aim to point of impact for several hundred rounds, I'll be really happy. I don't know how long a laser should hold aim though.

Anyone have any tips for sighting in?

PoSSom,

Great pics, thanks for the support. Within the packaging, there is a cardboard insert that includes instruction on sighting it in. Let me know if they help you.

The laser sighted-in pretty well (on a Tac-9). No change was needed on the windage, just a slight elevation change was needed. I was shooting a few inches low at 8-10yrds at first, but a few slight adjustments up, back down and up and I was pretty well set at 10yds. Didn't get to try it at further distances, I was having too much fun breaking in my XD40SC :lol:

Yes. I think it'll be a good training tool as well for my friends who don't shoot much and have trouble knowing where to put the front sight while shooting at different distances. I find the main trouble people have is judging where to put the sights when shooting at close distances (7rds), vs shooting at 10 or 15yds. They'll see where the sights line up with the laser dot and will see if they are pulling off the target or flinching at anticipated recoil. It'll also make a great home defense gun of choice.

For the money, it can't be beat. Only time will tell whether it needs to be re-sighted in after a period of shooting, or if the bolts work loose, and how long the batteries will last.
