I just installed the Crimson Trace on my LCP. The instructions say to remove the CT when you clean your gun. Do you need to remove it every time? It seems like a bit of a pain, but if the laser would be damaged, I'd do it.

No. I raised this issue with CT. Just be careful not to let oil or solvent seap into the "innards." I do not remove my CT prior to routine cleaning of the gun.

I agree with Howard. Not hard at all. I got it on the first try without breaking anything, "unusual for me".

If you remove it for cleaning it would have to be sighted in again. No?

Wrap the laser unit in "press-n-seal" plastic wrap after the weapon is field stripped. cut it free after cleaning when Elsie is about to be reassembled

I do not remove mine. But you might use a clean dry Q-Tip on the laser now and than. they do get flim on them. did this when i first installed mine and it got real clear.
