Anyone have any ideas how to sight the CT laser in? I have gone to the range 2 times but it has been too bright out to see the laser. My only other option is to go to an indoor range but that is expensive in my neck of the woods.

Any suggestions?

Well mine was off quite a bit when I put it on.
I went to the range, took a few bags of shot. Set the target at 25'. Shot 3 shot groups, move it up and to the right, ever so slight amount of adjustment each time, got it dead on. Three nights later I went back to the range, shot it off hand. The bullet goes wherever the dot is. It's good from 7' to 25' little amount of variation.

Mine was within a couple of inches of being dead on. As others have stated just barely move those adjustments. Mine was like 2 inches high and 2 inches to the left on my first few shots. And after I got it sighted in I did as others have done and shot off hand just using the laser dot. I was able to get that (5) shot 5/8" group at 15 foot just using the laser dot, no sights. :)

If you can throw a laser bore sighter in there first, you'll be in good shape. Just bring the two dots together in your basement. That will have you really close. Then either go to a range that is open until dark and shoot near dark, or indoor range; by bore sighting first, you'll only need 10 minute to fine tune.

I roughly sighted mine at a range by running the target out to 75 feet and using your open sights with the gun resting on sand bags, adjust the dot to where you are looking with the open sights and when you bring the target in to 25 feet you will be incredibly close with your shots.

I used a bore sighter. It wasn't perfect but it got me on the paper at 7 yards and I tweaked from there. From what I hear the factory settings are pretty close to point of aim.

First off, the CTC lasers are sighted in at 50 ft using a Master laser that was sighted off the guns sights. 50 feet is chosen due to the offset of the laser to the bore. At 50 ft it's dead on and will not be off more than the bore offset at any distance between 0 and 100 feet.

For me personally, I sight them at about 21 ft (old guy eyes). My technique is to start by aligning them to the iron sights and then aim at a specific spot on the target. If the bullet strike is off, point the laser at the same place you first aimed at and then using the supplied wrench move the laser beam to the bullet hole while holding the gun still. Shoot a couple of more rounds and use the same procedure if necessary until you are making one ragged hole :) A bench rest will help but is not needed if you have good trigger control and steady aim.

One other thing to mention. I am left eye dominant and what will look sighted in using the iron sights by a right eye dominant person will almost always be to the right for me and vise versa.

For bright light conditions, you can use some 3M reflective tape on the target. When the laser hits the tape it reflects back and is then very easy to see. We use it all the time when product testing in the summer. (the only time we see the sun in Oregon ::))

Happy shooting!
