Last Friday I got my LCP and Saturday the CT lazer. Monday hit the range, gun worked without a flaw. It digested a couple of different kinds of ammo, recoil is not bad at all and my best group was 1 3/4" at 25 ft. Very impressive and only possible because of the CT. Problem was that the third clip and the lazer started to fade and then quit. Came back to life and then faded with the forth clip. I pulled the cover off the CT and pulled the battery and put it back in. Next two clips worked great. Has anyone had same type problems?

Greetings, casteal,

Had pretty much a similar problem, only mine was temperature sensitive. Colder it got, the dimmer it got.

Contacted Crimson Trace. They traded for a new one. Works great now.

Call 800-442-2406. They will help.

I just received the CT a few days ago and had the same problem.
The laser would fade or go out when I tapped no the side.
The problem was the battery contacts. Mainly the one on the bottom, which is very thin and flimsy.
I carefully bent the bottom contact upward just a hair and it stays on bright now, even when tapping hard on the sides and bottom.
I would call CT anyway and let them know that this problem has happened with a few of their units.
Best regards, JR

I'm assuming most folks on here have heard of this but if you are having issue with batteries fading in and out it can be a film on the contacts or the battery. Use a pencil eraser and gently clean the contacts and the battery surfaces.

It also could be some glue residue on the neg contact. The eraser trick will clean that off. :)
Thank all of you ;D I will try that at the range tomorrow. Hey "CTCdesigner" you guys take walkins for service. If something goes wrong I live in the area and trust hand to hand much more than Snail Mail :'(
