I have bought two Crimson Trace LaserGrips from Shooters-Resource, one for my M&P 45fs and one for my LCP. I have never found a better price anywhere. I put my order in for the LG-431 before they received their first delivery of 50 units. They were due in last Wednesday. My LG-431 arrived on Thursday.

They communicate well via email. I was able to confirm my place on the back order list and their estimate of when the units would arrive. They were spot on. I would highly recommend them as a vendor.

Is the free batteries for life promotion honored if we buy through here?
Crimson Trace does not offer the "Free Batteries for Life" promotion with the LG-431. There is no coupon in the package for this offer. We're looking for a good source on the 1/3N batteries to offer in our store. We've all got time - the estimated lifespan of the 1/3N in the CT laser sights is 4.7 - 4.9 years.

A quick search got this source.....

Prices for Duracell in bulk pack were $1.95 ea. Batteries Plus also carries the 1/3N size. In a pinch you can also use 2 of the 357 size battery.

The shelf life of the 1/3N battery is 4 to 5 years (357 is 1.5 years) and they will last about 25% longer so it's the best choice. They also have a higher operating temp than the 357 battery.

In the long run, either will so the job just fine.

I would think it would go down. The dealers and distributors have a pricing structure based on the MSRP price with the street price set by their own overhead costs and minimum profit they need to stay in business.

It's interesting that the price was reduced (which I heard here first!) when we can't keep up with demand right now. A laser on the LCP is a match made in heaven, given the poor stock sights.

Just to set the record straight, I found out that this is part of a promotion for direct sales from our web site for certain models. As such, it won't effect the street pricing.

Sorry guys :'(

I am trying to work something out for the forum with the Galco pocket holsters we were selling with the LG430 for the P3AT. I just have to get the marketing guy to go along. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

Could you skip the holster deal and work on the lifetime battery deal? 8)

I'm very interested in the Galco holster deal with the LG-431 laser. There is a dealer here that has this promotion going on with the LG-430. (Minneapolis)
