Others have mentioned the same problem on this forum as well as the Crimson Trace forum.Sluggo said:Did a search, didn't find anything - does anyone else have issues with the activation button? I wish it were a bit larger in diameter and half again to twice as thick. I sometimes have to reposition my finger to activate.
I used a sharp razor knife, just kind of scraped off the sharp edges, then used sandpaper to smooth it up a bit. I did have the CT off the pistol at the time, but I think if you were careful you could do it with the laser in place...AdaShooter said:Mike- Did you use a Dremel tool? Did you leave the CT on the LCP when you filed it down?
"Trim-ability" was the reason I chose the Pachmayr as well. The rubber is softer and tends to stretch farther without tearing than Hogue products.kraigster414 said:Or you can do what I did using the small Pachmayr which I find easier to trim than the Hogue Handall Jr and once trimmed less likely to tear.
LittleLiver said:Didn't like the feel of the CT's lip on the button area and didn't want to grind it off. Put a Pachmayr on and cut it around the rectangular button. Super glued a bit on the edges near the switch to hold her down. Now the button seems to blend into the grip and works better for me.
BTW, for those that don't have the CT on their LCP, what are you waiting for? ;D
do you have any updated pics? thx.
The pictures are before I glued 'er and I also trimmed the square edge near the mag release to match the rounded shape of the release indent on the grip.

That Superglue could be a mess to get off of though if you ever wanted to remove the grip but it sure looks nice on your gun - very professional! For those who don't want to go the Superglue route, cut the slit for the button narrower than you think is required. If you do it right, it will expand just enough to provide a border without being an obstruction.
