Just put one in. I like it better than the CT "wraparound" thing, even though I like the CT better, generally.

What I found was that I had trouble getting my right index (trigger) finger on the actuation button. The XD has two frame pins between the recess for the takedown lever and the trigger, making rapid tactile contact with the switch very difficult.

Not quite finished, yet. The sharp definition helps, too. No structural material is removed doing this.

Heck, it's an ugly gun to begin with. And I love it.

I've tried this, and I can nail the button every time, instantly, since the groove is exactly where the finger falls in the "guard" position. It's almost as fast as a CT, but without the alien stuff.

I've had a LM on a Sig 229 for about two years, now. I like it, but it's too much of a reach for that button. So, now I'm thinking of trying to trade or sell the 229 LM and put a CT on that one.

We've got LaserMax in our G19 & G21. Both have given excellent service over thousands of rounds. Both were plenty accurate right out of the box!

With my simian hands, I have no problem reaching the switch, but I can see your point.

CT's a great product, and I'd put one on a 1911 or revolver any day, but I too didn't like the affect on the grip angle on the poly-gun.
