  1. ergonomics are not well engineered Review by Howard
    Rating

    I recently purchased this item and was immediately disappointed. I have several Kimber weapons and this .380 meets or exceeds all expectations. Your product as installed in this weapon has extremely poor ergonomics. The switch to activate the laser (when gripping to fire) is too small AND requires too much pressure, and is poorly placed. The combination of all of these design “issues” result in a totally useless product on this weapon. This opinion is not limited to me; I have provided this weapon to several other EXPERIENCED, educated, active security people and they all agree. Your product, as implemented, installed on this weapon is counter-functional and demands unnatural grip training. But the dot is great after you fiddle to turn it on. The problem is in activating the switch in the grip. Turning on the device - "making the light come on in preparation for target acquisition" should not require such a deliberate and exaggerated squeeze of the button by the third finger.

  2. inferior product Review by hlh
    Rating

    The activation of the laser is not ergonomically well implemented. the required emphasis on the squeeze of the third finger does not blend well with training with other weapons. I am quite experienced and have given this weapon to active LE personnel -- and they agree. This product needs some engineering improvement. (Posted on 6/12/2018)

    I recently purchased this Crimson Trace product for a Kimber micro carry. This note emphasizes a serious complaint about the product. I have several Kimber weapons and this .380 meets or exceeds all expectations. Your product as installed in this weapon has extremely poor ergonomics. The switch to activate the laser (when gripping to fire) is too small, requires too much pressure, and is poorly placed. The combination of all of these design errors on your part result in a totally useless product on this weapon. This opinion is not limited to me; I have provided this weapon to several other EXPERIENCED, educated, active security people and they all agree. Your product, as implemented, installed on this weapon is counter-functional and demands unnatural grip training. The problem is in activating the switch in the grip. Turning on the device - "making the light come on in preparation for target acquisition" should not require such a deliberate and exaggerated squeeze of the button by the third finger. If the switch were the entire inner surface of the grip or perhaps a combination of the entire inner and rear surface of the handle, making the laser illuminate "naturally" whenever the handle is gripped in an intention to aim manner, the issue would be solved. I have spoken directly to the Kimber customer relations about this. They were quite interested in these comments and requested that I contact you. It would be really nice if you could improve this design. It would significantly improve your product for this weapon. Thank You (Posted on 6/12/2018)


  4. VERY POOR DESIGN Review by hlh
    Rating

    I purchased this product as a "crimson micro" directly from Kimber. A previous commenter mentioned that a large man's hand can block the laser, however I purchased this item for my wife who has rather small hands. The "nub" activation button on the front makes the item mostly useless for a truly self-defense situation. The button, fair to compare it to a primer bulb on a small 2-cycle engine requires a conscious "extra squeeze" by the middle finger. This requirement injects another "layer" of training. It is counter to a "normal" grip with an equal pressure in holding the weapon. I am experienced -- I find it cumbersome for me to activate the laser, as does my wife, as does 3 of my extremely experience -- even law enforcement friends. This button is a very poor design and I am extremely disappointed with it. I have spoken directly to Kimber about this issue. This is NOT AN ENHANCEMENT to their excellent weapon. Activation should happen easily when gripping the weapon to fire. I could go on, but this presents the problem. I love the weapon, as does my wife, however without a redesign of the activation button there is no way I would ever recommend this item.
    I WOULD HAVE RATED THIS "NO STARS" IF IT WERE POSSIBLE. (Posted on 5/31/2018)

  6. Great grips within their design limits and the weapon they will be on. Review by Patrick H.
    Rating

    To the grips. On the design limits, these are small grips for a small pistol. Main thing there, besides big hands, is with your trigger finger out of the guard it is easy to move it up enough to block the laser, minor issue, was easy to adjust to for me with average size hands for a man. Other wise grips felt good and no real loss of space compared to original grips. It is a red laser so easier to see in lower light conditions. My main reason was for home defense and back up weapon, using with thought to being night / low light. Due to weapon's design, no rail mount, this is about the only option for laser mount,(short of duct tape), and at this time only available in red light. Since it is mainly for close in defense it should not be a big issue but did want to mention. Activation button,(under middle finger), is easy to press with normal grip. If I don't focus on it I don't even notice the action of the button. I also like that it has a master on/off switch in a recessed position on the lower part of the left side grip. That way you can easily turn it off if you don't want it on for some reason without having to open the grips and also no worry of hitting it by accident.
    Installation is pretty straight forward. You will need a 3/32 Allen wrench for the grips screws. Same screws are used in new grip which is a one piece unit. I do want to point out one thing, as it is not mentioned in the instructions, and before you have a minor "wtf" moment as I did. Before you put on the new grip you may have to move the upper screw post on the right side. Not a issue, you will need a small crescent wrench or wrench around 1/4" or so. I had a crescent and didn't think to measure it before I put it together. It is a small post with the typical two flat sides to grip at. It is firmly tightened but will unthread without problem, does not appear to be any lock-tight material on it and has a short thread reach. It will need to be moved into the pre-threaded hole right below that one. Snug it good but not to hard, don't want to strip it, as I said short threads. And make sure what ever tool you use has a firm bite on the two flat side, may be easy to round off some. After that the grips will fit just right. Of course don't forget to put the batteries in the grips first. Speaking of which,in the box you will find the grips, usual additional papers, instruction guides, 2 cleaning swabs for the lens, adjusting tool for laser alignment and a couple of small warning decals you are supposed to put on your pistol which I am sure add to it's fine lines-lol. All in all only takes a few minutes if you haven't done one before, no where as long as I "word" it. I think I may need to adjust mine, seems just a bit to the right and up but that should not be a problem. And of course do all of this with the weapon un-loaded and cleared and watch the trigger finger if you are just trying the laser out. Remember - stupid kills. This was the first grip style laser I have installed/used and wrote this from that view point, so, please excuse me if I got a bit lengthy. Hope this is helpful. (Posted on 12/7/2016)
