So when do you think they are going to come out with some new nifty green lasers for like lasermax or crimson trace (soon to be emerald trace :) )

I like the greens much better and I have noticed that the prices are coming down quite nicely in the little pen lasers in green.

I have seen them for like AR's on a picatinny rail but I am talking about grips or guide rods.

Anyone have any ideas or have heard anything?

I don't know but I'd welcome it - I don't see red very well.

The only commercially available, pistol-mounted green laser I know of, is the Uni-Max by LaserMax. At $359.99, it's $210.00 more than the red-beam model at MidwayUSA:

Note: Right now, LaserMax is offering a $25.00 rebate to all NRA members...

As for green lasers, here's what I've learned...

Today's semiconductor diode green lasers are created by amping up an infrared laser diode to the visible green spectrum of light. This takes a larger laser module and a lot more power than a red diode laser does. Battery life on the green machines is about one half that of a comparable red-beam unit. :scrutiny:

So far, the modules are too large, and hot running, to accommodate an internal guide rod set up. But exterior mounts like the Uni-Max and eventually grips, are doable.

While ordinary red lasers are minimally useful in daylight, the green laser can be seen! The inverse is that the green laser describes a visible line right back to the shooter, when used at night. :uhoh:

If you saw the movie, Alien Vs. Predator, you saw the green laser equipped assault rifles of the team, conveniently designate their locations for the bad guys at all times. Doh! :banghead:

Red or green, the Uni-Max is a slick design, with an integral rail molded into its bottom, so you can stack on a weapon light, or another laser, for that matter! Reviews on this laser have been pretty good!

With the NRA rebate, you can now get a quality laser for $124.99!

We have the guide rod LaserMax on our G19 and G21, and are well pleased with them! ;)

I made a holster last week for a Walther p22 with a "Veridian" laser mounted on it. That thing was super bright, but it was a far cry from the small sizes of the lasermax or crimson trace lasers. It would be nice if they made one, but I'll bet it would cost an arm and a leg.

Green lasers are in the center of the human eye's sensitivity band, which is why they're seen better.

If you're an NRA member, you can now get Uni-Max Green for $309.99...
