Customer Service
I have Crimson Trace Lasergrips LG-480 on my Walther PP (that I also purchased from Lights & Holsters) which I am quite happy with it. So I bought this LG-401 for my Colt 1911 Series 70 Government Model.

Like on my Walter PP, the activation button seemed for me too difficult to access/press. So like on the PP, I added some thin rubber under the button to move it forward a bit which made it easier for me to activate. I also find the laser getting a bit in the way of my fore finger when in pre-fire mode (ie: finger off the trigger area). They could have made the laser a bit ride higher to eliminate this. Minor issues aside, it works just fine.

Living in the desert when the sun is always bright and rarely with clouds, this red laser (like all other legal 5mw lasers) is totally useless in direct bright sun beyond 15-20 feet or so, particularly on dark objects. However, in overcast, low or no light conditions is where this laser works best and shines even at very far distances.

Finally, I must give kudos to Lights & Holsters as the best online store with the best customer service for what it sells.
