Crimson Trace LG-405
« on: July 11, 2020, 11:08:29 am »
My wife has a SW .38 Sp J-Frame with a Crimson Trace LG-405 Grip Laser.

I had never messed with it much..but just tried to zero it with bore sight.  The CT laser dot is about 4 in high and 2" left (all in garage without firing)
The windage adjustment was no problem...uses tiny hex wrench through hole in grip.

The elevation adjustment would not work.  The actual adjustment screw is not visible as you work thru a time hole.  Should work just like windage but nothing moves.

Anyone have any experience with this sight?

    If it is bad call Crimson Trace. I always adjusted them to the sights at 10 yards. Are you sure you are getting that tiny allen key into the socket?

    Actually...I just found the small manual that came with it.  It seems that this is a common problem as they give a solution.

    For anyone who may be interested in the future:
    Turn both wee adjusting screws out so that several threads project beyond laser site housing...do not remove screws!
    Use finger to jar and knock on laser housing.

    I tried this and it worked.   :thumbup

    I'm actually experiencing the same issue with my model 19. I had to reshape a single office staple to work in place of the oem allen wrench. I can laser boresight it close but I still can't get it dialed in as close as I'd like.

    Thanks for the info. Here's a clip for all you visual learners out there.

    Bullets are the only things that do their job only after they're fired.
