I wish I got one earlier than I did!! Review by JohnInKY
I purchased the LG-111 for my stainless, 2 inch barrel, 38 Special, SP101, that I bought new in 1989 (S/N Prefix 570-).
Installation was quick and easy. I recommend cleaning the grip area, and where the laser warning stickers go, with a q-tip and denatured alcohol to de-grease.
I pre-sighted in as best as I could with aligning the "dot" to where the sights pointed indoors at about 30 feet (trigger guard clamped lightly in a vice in my garage). Next, I went to an outdoor range on a cloudy day to fine tune, with three types of ammunition, at 7 yds. At this range, firing double action, I got 90 gr Hornady, 125 gr Speer +P, and my 130 gr cast handloads to all group in a centered 5-shot (15 total rounds) 2 1/4 inch group! The 130 gr handloads and the 90 gr Hornadys grouped under an inch within their respective groups. Better than I had ever shot with iron sights with this gun! Way good enough for an old man’s house gun.
The only issue I had was that the instructions in the Crimson Trace "Laser Sight Owner’s Handbook," for the LaserGrips Platform (what the LG-111 is) for windage and elevation adjustments were the EXACT opposite of what was stated in the book. I assumed that "left" in the instructions means move the point of BULLET impact left, "right" means move the point of impact right, "up" means move point of impact up, and "down" means move point of impact down. A clarification in the instruction book as to WHAT is moving “right,” “left,” “up” and “down” with the adjustments, BULLET or LASER impact point, would be nice!
Now we will see: if the zero holds, how long the batteries last, and if the zero holds AFTER a new battery install......
P.S. I wish I kept the receipt, as I see there is a rebate going on now, pooh!!

Great product, Review by Mikered
I'm older, and have difficulty sighting my SP101 with a 21/2" barrel. I put a CT unit on her, and can now put 10 out of 10 shots ( 2 strings of 5) in the 8-9-10 ring @ 45' with out trying!! The red lazer is clearly visible even in bright sun light. It made this gun a TRUE home defense gun. THANKS C.T.!!! (Posted on 3/9/16)
A fun/SERIOUSLY SHORTENED story..worth reading. Review by GhosTT
Own a 2 1/4" SP101.for MANY YEARS.
Had it MAGNAPORTED,C-MORE front site replacement,
and lastly... LG-111 Crimson Trace grips.
Though the long version of the story is both long and interesting....Here is the short version.
Where I live ,big yards,football field sized...full of trees,a creek... almost living in a park.
MANY YEARS AGO...A VERY DARK NIGHT....
6 young guys decided to break in the house next to mine...older lady's house.
As just heard "bad noises",no clue who ,what,or how many...
Circled around the long way around our yards ,came uo behind them about 30 yards away,in the total dark, Then saw them trying to pry open a back door and windows.
Put a big tree between us then....................
Within 5-10 seconds lit up/turned on and off my CRIMSON TRACE LASER on the door and windows right in front of them.
The next 15-30 seconds looked like a comedy sketch.
Best guess, they thought more than one guy aiming at them.....
They ran....Right in my direction!!!!!!! thinking a safe exit!
Ran right past me....coulda reached out and touched one.
(I DIDN'T TRY)....
Yeah, not pretending a big balled tough guy, I was THRILLED when all ran past me.
I did grin a little when heard them fall into to creek.and splashing sounds as they followed the creek to leave the area.
Own a couple of CRIMSON TRACE gripped handguns.
Have no doubt ,that night the laser woulda helped if needed .
If things went bad........
Actually, without firing a shot......safe bet, it more than paid for itself.
All that said,
Still thinking about upgrading to the newer overmold grip version.
Lord knows, they make great rounds for .357 magnum SNUBBBYs.
And .38 specials have come a long way.
Yet I still keep my SP101 loaded with full powered 125 grain ,jacketed hollow points.
Even with my barrel MAGNAPORTED....Still kicks like a pissed off mule...lol.

Instinctive Review by Johnny Buckeye
I bought my Laser Grip 18 months ago and I can't you how much I love it. I bought my Ruger SP101 (3 In.) at Gander Mountain and there was a promotion on the grips. I bought it because of the promotional price, I'll buy again because of the performance. *** Have your gunsmith adjust the laser. *** It's worth it! (Posted on 1/24/15)
No shut off switch Review by Mark
I do like the grips themselves. I have some on a 1911 and put these on my SP 101. I dont like the fact that there is not a switch to shut them off like the ones on my 1911. I dont always want them on. I will be selling these. If you ever come out with one that has a switch to shut them off, I will buy again. (Posted on 5/5/13)

Perfect for the gun Review by Maineiac
I purchased an SP101 with these grips for concealed carry. Activation is easy, instinctive, and really makes this into a seriously accurate snubby. You cannot beat this grip! (Posted on 7/23/12)
