    I'm going to equip my new Bushmaster 97S pistol with a green laser and was wondering if anyone has experience with the AimSHOT LS8200, 12mw, 532nm green laser. Things like holding zero, toughness ect.

    I have one mounted on my M4. They are 4 inches long and are meant for rifles. I have not seen a pistol version of them, they did not have a pistol version of the green laser at the SHOT Show.

    That said, they work REALLY, REALLY well. Just be sure not to even get reflected beam in your face.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Got a good (low cost) online source?

    you can get n ice equivalent models on ebay that have the output power bumped from 5mW to 35mW, making a much brighter beam. prices are better too. anywhere from $80-125 on ebay tonight.

    here's a good example: http://cgi.ebay.com/532nm-Green-Las...870222413QQcategoryZ94882QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    my pop is living in China Now, so i might see if i can get him to buy a case at low cost (he has connections over there of course) and ship them over. maybe i'll have a group price sale in the other forum in a couple weeks. :)

    Thanks, I know I can, but.... EekBay and knock-offs aren't in my search parameter.

    It's long been my belief that buying a name brand product from a reputable source at a fair price means far less headaches and boxs of junk I can't use.

    I've asked the AimSHOT question on other sites and have received good reviews so I've decided go ahead and ordered one.

    Thank you much for the replies gents.

    update: i bought a sample surefire knockoff 35mW green laser sight off of ebay a few weeks ago. solid construction, poor windage/elevation design, wouldn't hold zero, and then completely died for good after 30 rnds of 9mm from my Bushmaster AR15 9mm pistol. waste of money, diont buy it.

    at this point, i'm leaning towards the aimshot ls8200 also.

    Any updates on the AimShot lasers

    I know this thread is old and dusty, but it is right up the alley of what I wanted to ask. I'm looking at getting a LS8268 from AimShot and wanted to know if anybody has any experience good or bad. :confused:

    Further Explanation: My planned use is to put it on a Hi-Point C-9 until I get a XD45 compact. For that reason, I want a laser light combo that has rail and trigger guard mount options. The price is definitely right if it is decent, but I can't find any reviews on this specific model. Reviews on the brand in general seem positive.
