Crimson Trace zero?

    Does the zero on Crimson Trace grips change if you take them on & off like a scope does? I am strongly considering them for a revolver for house gun duty, but would like to, on occasion, shoot longer sessions at the range, and do not think they would be comfortable for that. I was thinking about using a Hogue grip for long target sessions, but the Crimson Trace would of course be practiced with to gain and keep proficiency.

    Have changed the batteries on mine once. I suspect it may depend on the gun, but POA/POI shift was minimal. Still I'll alwyas check mine after changing batteries. Try to keep the grip screw torque consistant.

    I've never been able to zero mine, anyway. Laser is great, but my shots don't go where it points. :rolleyes:

    For my use, the shift in POA/POI would not matter in the least.

    I have Crimson Trace grips on my Browning Hi Power, and my S&W 637 and 686. I replace the batteries every six months at the same time I replace the batteries in our smoke alarms and Lojack dongles. The POI has never shifted from having done so. In fact, POI has never shifted for any reason. Excellent product, excellent customer support.
    Cordially, Jack

    I have mine dialed in at 10 yards. It shoots a hole in the lazer dot @ 7-12 yards. It's on my S&W 642 and shoots perfectly. I had to adjust it slightly to get it there. It is still dead on after hundreds of rounds.

    Just re-read my post and it sounds like I might mean it is the laser's fault.

    Nothing further from the truth. I just meant I can't hold the gun still enough to hit that laser dot. Between a little flinch and some recoil, the bullet hits somewhere other than where I was aiming. :D

    I guess that kind of messes up rules 2 through 4. :neener:

    My grips come off after every range session for a cleaning. Had to send a set back to CT for repair after I got some solvent on the diode module. I've found the POI shifts very little if at all. I just make sure I have a set of wrenches in my range bag if they do.

    And I have them on four different pistols!

    Mine are dialed in for 15 yards, and don't shift at all.
