There appears to be more than a trace of evidence that Crimson Trace has hit the target with their new laser grip for the Ruger LCP!
A while back I purchased the Ruger LCP 380 for my carry pistol. When I saw that Crimson Trace came out with a new laser grip designed for my LCP, I couldn’t wait to pair them up.
The LG-431 laser grip has the front instinctive activation. Meaning, when you grip the LCP normally, the laser will instantly be projected where you’re aiming. This also makes this user-friendly for right- or left-handed shooters.
The laser grip is made from a rugged hard polymer with an ultra-compact 3.3mm diode. This is a Class III(a) laser, which is the maximum output allowed by federal law and technology. It has both windage and elevation adjustments and comes with a complete 3-year warranty. The LG-431 operates on either two #357 silver oxide batteries or a single 1/3N 3 volt lithium battery.
The installation was very simple and took less than five minutes. It came with the instructions and hex wrenches necessary to install and adjust the laser. I spent less than 20 minutes getting the laser sighted in for myself.
I always shoot Winchester ammunition and was using their 380 target/range 95 grain full metal jacket ammunition for this review.
I thought the ProEars electronic hearing protection/amplifying system couldn’t get any better. I was wrong!
The only electronic hearing protection proudly made in America, Pro Ears has added a new line building on the unparalleled quality, reliability and advanced technology of the Dimension series: New Pro Ears GOLD.
What makes the GOLD Series different? Well, it all begins, as with the Dimension series featuring the exclusive DLSC™ technology, but unlike the standard ‘clipping’ or ‘volume compression’ electronics used by all other manufacturers, this unique technology never shuts off. This allows the wearer to hear every sound even during high volume noise spikes, where other hearing protection units only shut the unit off, blocking out all sound or simply turning the volume down still drowning out softer sounds with louder ones.
The GOLD units stand alone in that they are the first and only to feature a high tech, 8 Bit Micro-Processor that runs a complete electronic diagnostic when turned on, similar to a scan run by your computer but this processor runs 10,000 diagnostics per second so that you always know your system is in 100% optimum working order.
Other unique features that make the GOLD line special include:
Hunters and Law Enforcement personnel will appreciate the unbeatable hearing protection, but also appreciate the Volume and Gain Adjustability which allows the wearer to amplify surrounding sounds up to 8 times enabling the user to hear long distance and quiet sounds as never before.
All Pro Ears muffs are extremely comfortable against your head even while wearing glasses due to the Exclusive ProForm Leather™ Ear Seals. These are made to conform completely around the ear for the most complete noise elimination possible. They are so comfortable that I wore a pair all day and forgot I had them on.
The GOLD Series is truly amazing and comes in several models depending on the need. For example, if you are exposed to tremendous loud noise levels like aircraft, construction, demolition or shooting high power handguns indoors, you would want to get the Mag units. For lesser levels you may go with the Slim models. For lower still and for the long gun hunters for bird shooting, clay, trap, muzzle loaders and certainly the bowhunter, the Predator, or Stalker units are preferred. You not only get comfort and excellent hearing protection but the amplification you really need to enable you to hear game moving before you see them, and certainly after the shot is taken to pinpoint direction after the hit.
I loved my Dimension models but the new GOLD, they are just phenomenal!
