Are these normal on everyone else's LG-431s?

Not sure cause I sent my ruger back before I could mount it. They say it should be 2 weeks before returning it to me,but I here turnaround time is 3x that. :(

Mine has the gap around the laser module, it doesn't look as wide as the one on yours, mine does not have the gap by the trigger guard, are you sure the screws are tight enough? When I first put mine on, I was really worried about twisting the little suckers in two, so I squeezed the two halves of the laser as I screwed the screws, took care of the gap for me :)

Mine's tight and looks like it is molded together. I did pinch the two sides together tightly as I snugged up the screws.
Try remounting the booger.

96GTS,

There is a foam pad on the left side of the battery compartment that's there to keep the battery tight when installed on the gun. This should compress more over time helping with the gap. You could trim some of the foam away but the gap will not effect performance in any way so I would just leave it alone. You can also call in to our customer service line and arrange to send it back to us and we can check it out for you.

Thanks Dan. It works great (still have to range test it). Doesn't bother me too much, just thought it was unusual. I will check out the pad and also give it some time to compress and snug the screws down periodically... :)

Dan, I no longer have the little foam pad and my unit screws tightly together and have no problems. That little piece of foam is not going to last forever, mine got a little soggy the first time I cleaned my gun with the CT still installed and I guess a little solvent made its way through the seam.
