you can get the crimson trace laser for your m&p. it replaces the removable palmswell. but you need the model without the thumb safety.

so if someone has a 9 or 40 compact with a thumb safety they can not use the CT grip lasers?

goldwinghg, I have not seen S&W 40's with built in lasers, just the bodyguard 38 and bodyguard 380.

If the pistol is equipped with a ambi-safety, I would agree that the right side would need to be removed before installing CTC laser grip. If it has a safety only on the left side, no need to remove it.

Note (fuzzy) pic of the left side of my 40c with CTC laser grip installed. If there was a safety (and there is not), but if there was one, it would not interfere with the CTC grip.

The CTC model number for the 40c is LG-661. I suspect, but you should check anyway, that it's the same for a FS 40.

Agree, that "activation" of CTC laser is much more "effortless" than having to manually turn a lever on/off. In fact, I leave my CTC laser (unit) "on" all the time. The laser (light) is only activated when I firmly grip the pistol. CTC claims that the batteries should last for 4 hrs of laser (light)/on. Another poster advised changing batteries every 6 mos, and I would add, especially if you CCW whenever you go out, which I do. I often find myself inadvertantly activating the laser for about a second whenever I'm putting on or taking off my IWB holster. I also (safely) practice drawing and pointing my pistol/laser several times a week. I doubt that this will add up to 4 hrs/240 minutes/14,400 secs of laser time, but...

I'm not sure where you've checked prices, but I got mine for $217 (retail: $329), plus $11 shipping from: https://www.manventureoutpost.com/lo...hp%3Faction%3D. My understanding is that these authorized e-dealers place your order, then they are dropped shipped to the buyer directly from CTC.

Also, CTC offers FREE, yes I said FREE, batteries every year, for life of grip/gun.

One last thing about CTC. I "lost" one (of 2) of the allen wrenches that are provided with the unit and when I called their customer service, they sent me 6 more...FREE.

M&P40  .40S&W - Smith & Wesson

These are all the current .40 cal models. You will find two models with CT laser grips, a compact or a full size.

Hey Motorcity...I looked on that site and the prices must have gone up. I searched for one for my 9c and it came up to $299.

Huh...I just went to the ManVenture site and had them email the price of the LG 660 model (for M&P 9's) and it is still $217.83. Not sure why they're listing it at $299 for you.
