not a Glock

I'm looking for a pistol that I can use the CTC laser grips on. I don't want a Glock, and I'm unsure of their competitors. I know the S&W sigma is close, but according to Crimsons web site, they don't have a laser for that style of smith. Any other options out there? Looking to buy used and would prefer a smaller/lighter gun. I shot a Glock 19 last weekend and it was perfect, but I don't want a Glock.

Welcome to the forum Todd! :D

Have you looked at Sig handguns? They offer many models and sizes and are well known for reliability and quality. CTC does make grips for several models. I would also suggest you look at CZ handguns. They are listed as having lasergrips available on www.crimsontrace.com but the website doesn't seem to be working right now. The Springfield Armory XD line has a compact model that is very similar to a Glock and more reasonably priced as well. I'm not entirely sure CTC offers grips for the XD but I believe they can be found from other manufacturers if not CTC.

It may help to know what your budget and intended use as well as preferred caliber are. One thing to consider is that for a carry gun lasergrips may not be a useful feature since they will give your position away in the dark and may make drawing the gun slower if they hang up on your pocket or holster. Just a thought.

For your budget and since its just for plinking I would suggest you consider a full sized 9mm Desert Eagle. Its marketed as the "Baby" Desert Eagle because its a normal sized gun compared to the behemoth .50AE Desert Eagles. I bought mine for about $400 and its been great for target practice. Here's my review and a picture.

Its very similar to a CZ design which are also great guns but it doesn't fit your small/light specification. For plinking a full sized pistol is typically easier to control though.
I get it now. :D It does sound like you want a polymer gun. The last suggestion I have is to look into the fairly new S&W M&P. I haven't had a chance to see or hold one yet but they sound interesting. Good luck with your search, thats half the fun!
Don't ever feel like you have to apologize for being ticked after getting poor service. YOU and others like you are the only reason they have jobs. Sometimes they forget that.
$469 is about what the current market dictates the price to be. It isn't a great deal but it is a fair (standard) price.
Email CT and ask if they plan to offer a grip for the XD.
