Amateur-hour documentation. Review by Redroom Fotog
Perhaps CTC has rewritten its installation manual for the Railmaster Pro - I hope they have. Reference drawings are small and do not have sufficient detail. Having written technical manual myself, I wager the guy writing the CTC manual was an engineer totally familiar with the product. Lots of details were left out. ALSO, there is no manual (that I am aware of) other than the installation drawings and notes. Windage and elevation information is not readily available on sit, either.
The CTC product functions as advertised - but unless you are a gunsmith or a really good amateur (I am not), you'll experience a frustration level that should not happen - especially for the price. (Posted on 8/11/14)
light is awsome Review by an63l323
I have had the CMR-205 for about 4 months now it has been on my HK P30s everyday carry,this light/laser is awesome I have taken it to the range and has yet to loose zero. I have also not changed the batteries since i received it, laser was easy to zero.I was looking for a light laser that would not extend past the barrel like other lights do ex. Tlr1,x300.this sits flush with my P30 as well as my Glock 19.the laser is easy for me to see even in the day the light is perfect for home defense lights up the rooms nicely without blinding.would definitely recommend it and will be purchasing another (Posted on 7/7/14)
Everything I hoped for! Review by John
Bought this from Black Bear Sporting Goods at a great price. Put it on my S&W M&P Compact 9mm. Fits nicely--only extends maybe 1/4" past the slide/barrel, if that. Looks nice too. Activation is easy with either index finger, or I've found it's quite natural to use my support thumb. The beam is pretty wide with no center spot--it does what it can for 100 lumens, but don't count on it to be real useful outside normal interior room distances. Great for interior home use, etc. but dissipates quickly outside. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the switch doesn't feel very good, at least on mine--requires quite a bit of pressure to activate, and there's no discernible click. You only know it's on when you see something. That's why thumb activation feels the best--it's easy to press hard and be assertive. I would not want to be trying to manipulate this switch with my trigger finger under pressure!
Holster options are obviously going to be limited... I ended up going with two options. For IWB carry, I got a model from Nate Squared Tactical (Original Compact for Trigger Guard Mounted Lasers https://www.n82tactical.com/store/holsters/mp-shield-9mm#prettyPhoto) that uses an elastic loop to hold the gun. Originally it was almost too tight to get the whole thing in, but I took a sharp knife and carefully cut some of the stitching to open up the bottom and loosen it up enough that now it's not too hard to get it in and out. This is not something you practice drawing and re-holstering from, though! It's quite a process to get the gun in there and then secure the holster in position. I'm thinking about how to use the Springtac Holster, but without the ability to cant the angle of the holster I'm not sure if it will work for me.
Otherwise, for deep concealment that works very well for semi-formal attire (tucked in dress shirt, etc.) I've been using one of these: http://www.andresholsters.com/dcch_chest.html Worn around the middle of the torso where it's thinnest before it widens into the hip bones, it conceals the gun very nicely under the arm. Access is a little slow, but I can't even see it in the mirror and I know exactly what I'm looking for! I had to cut some stitching on this one as well, but it all fits nicely. The double holds gun, two magazines, folding knife, etc. and as long as you don't make it too tight, I find it's acceptably comfortable for all-day wear in the office.
