Accurate without adjustments. Installs in a minute. Simple to use, almost foolproof. Doesn't interfere with holsters. Fits hands as well as the stock grip. A little pricey, but over the years it won't matter. Pros: Quick, easy, accurate, reliable Cons: none

Instructions are clear and well written and sight adjustments are easily made. Crimson Trace replaces the Ruger grips with a new set that holds the laser sight. The new grips are too narrow and without the finger dividers at the front so that felt recoil revolver rotation is greater than with the Ruger grips. Pros: Easily adjusted and holds adjustment when grips removed and replaced Cons: Poorly designed grips - too narrow. Ruger grips should be copied for more comforable recoil!

The LCR's sights are small and virtually impossible to pick up in low light situations. The addition of Crimson Trace's laser grips transform a snub nose 38 like the LCR from a "point and pray" gun to a reliable and accurate self defense self defense weapon. While the Crimson Trace grips do not fit my large hands as well as the stock Ruger grips, the benefits far outweigh this one drawback. Pros: Allows for low light accuracy Cons: Grip not as comfortable

If this is your primary or secondary pocket pistol, then you do need the 'red dot'! In a tactical situation, it is unlikely you will have the time or presence of mind to slow down, take careful aim and squeeze the trigger - it is more likely you will pull, point and shoot. With the activation of the laser as you grip the gun, the red dot shows you where the bullet will go. And with this little jewel, it is even more important for the following shots as the 'kick' with lost sight picture is huge using +P ammo. So you really need it for the follow-up to ensure the bullet goes where you intend. At least that's the way it works for me at the range and I pray I'll not need it & use it in a SD situation.

The laser required very minor adjustment to zero in. Held zero very well and I was able to shoot 3" groups with the LCR at 15 yrds. Great product. Pros: Easy to install Cons: Grip is slightly smaller than stock LCR grip

The LG-411 is a great addition to the LCR. I have used Crimson Trace on semi-autos, but this is the first "grip" version I have used. It is super easy to install and zero in. Definitely improves target acquisition for snub nose revolvers. Pros: easy to install, easy to zero, improves accuracy Cons: none

A good price from PlanetOptics. Easy to install and dead on! Only down side is the replacement grips are not as good as original grips. Purchased for my wife to use for self defense. Laser will be a deterrent hopefully!! If not.....better accuracy for her.

My wife can see this laser without her glasses or contact lens, something she absolutely needs for self-defense as she would not be able to see the sights. It was easy to install, directions were well written.

Arrived promptly, installed easily that evening and is only 1/2" off target! Soooo happy I bought it! Sites better than the Ruger 22 w/CL installed that my husband bought! No mistake! This is the way to go for those of us who shoot only a couple of times a month. Gives you so much confidence.

The grips/laser sights were easily installed and required only minor adjustment to achieve point of aim. The accompanying holster does not provide as secure grip on the revolver as I would prefer but that is inherent in the design.

I like the these newer models. They have an on/off switch and a better activation button. the Crimson Trace Ruger LCR Laser Sight is especially useful at night when it is very difficult to see the gun sites.

I ordered the LCR with the crimson trace installed. When it came in I took it to the range and was absolutely dumbfounded by the accuracy. I will have these sights installed on all my handguns as soon as I can get them shipped to me.

The laser grip was as expected, vary easy to install, looks like it came with the pistol, and once sighted at the range was dead on at 7 and 15 yards, did not fire at any further distances. Pros: light weight, vary easy to install
