Not happy Review by DDI
So at first I was very happy about the low profile and how it attached to the gun. But it does not stay zeroed out ever. You can get it right on and then just tap it with your finger and its off again. Not just by a little bit either. By the time it hits the target you're a few feet away from where you're aiming. So maybe I got a lemon because for the price I expected something good quality. I emailed them and I'm hoping to get a new one or something to resolve the issue (Posted on 9/6/15)
Ready When Needed Review by Deep 6
I own an SR9c as well as a Springfield XDM. Both have the Laserguard. These lasers hold Zero with no problem. I feel much more confident with these on my go to home defense weapons.
I purchased the XDM from a reseller and believe I was given a deal on a defective unit. Crimson Trace support replaced the unit with no hassle!
I'm buying a Ruger 9e and hope I can get a Laserguard for that as well.
Great support on a great product! Buy one! (Posted on 6/17/15)
Better than expected Review by Phil
I had seen mixed reviews but was interested in getting a laser for my SR9c. Boy am I glad that I did!
I got a great deal from Amazon. When it arrived, the installation instructions seemed too easy to be true. It didn't take much more than a minute. The screws are tiny, so is the allen wrench, but it went together easily.
It looks like it part of the gun - flawless integration with the weapon.
I haven't used it a lot, but it has dramatically improved my shooting accuracy. The activation is very natural with conventional grip of the gun.
The free lifetime battery replacement is a great unexpected bonus. (Posted on 11/2/14)
crimso trigger guard sight Review by moose
the screws are very cheap. hadn't even shot my new ruger yet, was lining up the sights with the laser and could see the laser needed to be raised and windage adjusted. Windage adjusted fine but the elevation wouldn't move. then I could see the screw was split, looked on line and discovered countless similar accounts. for the cost of your laser beef up the screws for heavens sake.

Awesome! Review by Jeffrey
I bought the LG-449 for my Ruger SR9C despite a few negative reviews. Boy were they wrong! Installation was a breeze! Its sleek design is virtually weightless, and you forget its on there until you raise it to fire and after a little squeeze, there it is... a bright beautiful lazer illuminating whatever you are looking at! I would recommend this product! Also there are some pretty good holsters out for this combo. Happy lasering! (Posted on 1/17/13)
Laser worked great till I started shooting Review by EAS
Recoil of my firearm seemed to cause the laser to turn off and on at will. I will be replacing and i am, as of now, very disappointed with my first crimson trace product. Hopefully the next one will be something I can stake my life on (Posted on 12/17/12)
Absolutely FANTASTIC! Review by Libeccio42
First of all, the installation took just a few seconds. The “advertised” sighted by the manufacturer was just dead on target and on my CWC I scored the maximum possible.
I am using my SR9c with a wonderful VeresaCarry inside the waistband skeleton holster, and the combination is simply fantastic.
Thank you Ruger, thank you Crimson trace!

Great while it lasted! Review by DavidW
I received the LG-449 for my new Ruger SR9C and easily attached it in a snap. The unit was very close to being on, but did need a small amount of adjusting. The next day I went out and played around firing my new toy and was impressed with the bright laser. A laser certainly shows how much you are moving around on the target! My shooting buddy was making fun of my small movements until I handed the gun to him! After shooting I walked in the house and notice the laser was not turning on now, it was completely dead. Now I am waiting to see how quickly I can get the Laserguard repaired/replaced. Certainly doesn't give one a warm and fuzzy feeling if these units just stop working for no reason. I will update this post when the problem is solved. (Posted on 10/12/12)
Great Product : Great Customer Service Review by N
This has been great on my SR40c. Feels very natural in my hand and well made. I have to give credit to this company backing up their product. Mine came and I shot it a bit but laser would keep fading after about 2-3 shots. Called customer service and after waiting all of 5 seconds explained it to a REAL person - no questions asked and another set of batteries on the way with their apologies for the inconvenience. Great company!! (Posted on 9/25/12)
Awesome Review by Wayne
This Laser is awesome, the trigger gaurd activation switch, is perfectfor my use, no fumbeling around trying to turn on the laser with a oddly placed swich.
battery life seams to be excelent, and the laser optics are great, witha fine point out to well past the useable gun range.
i highly reccomend this Lser to anyone looking for a good one. (Posted on 5/3/12)
An Excellent Product! Review by Judge Joe Brown (syndicated TV)
I like these LaserGuards very much; I have tused hem on the following: Hk 45C; Ruger SR9/SR9c/SR40 (they'll fit the full sized edition just fine though with something of a gap between the unit and the rail from the front registration tab back). I've been shooting going on 58 ys - my old man started teaching me when I was 7 - and 'LaserGuarded' pistols work well for me using a one handed shooting technique while holding a light in the off hand at an extended distance (it's moved around randomly while strobed - or set to strobe if the light allows).
For a universal holster, for both the full sized and compact SR's, try cutting off the lower portion of the Blade Tech belt holster you offer so that the full-sized slide clears.
I've sent thousands of rounds down range with no zero migration problems and complete satisfaction
I would suggest that Crimson Trace issue a modified version dedicated to the full sized SR9 & SR40 (Posted on 4/2/12)
laser grip for the ruger sr40c Review by D
I wish they would make a true laser grip for the ruger sr40c I think it would be much better than the laserguard (Posted on 2/5/12)
Excellent design and function Review by Hunaric
I have had this laser on my Ruger SR9c for over 6 months now. It was very easy to zero, and has maintained zero despite being my EDC in a variety of holsters, every single day out of those 6 months, and multiple trips to the range every month. I have put at least 500 plus rounds down range, and its improved my accuracy ten fold with this already accurate pistol.
The only con I have is that it requires tools to remove, making holster options extremely limited. Which is why I gave it only 4 stars. But it is what it is on that front, if its not a Glock, 1911, Springfield or S&W M&P its hard to find holsters anyway.
I highly recommend this outstanding product, and have to friends!

This "Laser Guard" is not as good as "Laser Grips" Review by okay
I have Crimson trace on both my 1911 and my M&P 40 and love them both that way! So, when I got my SR9c I had very high expectations for them. They turned out not to be my cup of tea and made my gun feel very akward in my hands. So as much as I love my other products by CTC I didn't enjoy the LG449 much at all, but that's just one persons opinion and you may love them. (Posted on 1/20/12)
