Laserlyte LT-1 pistol laser trainer

Laserlyte, makers of the infamous pistol bayonet, have developed a training laser device called the LT-1. The LT-1 is inserted into a pistol barrel and is sound activated by noise from the hammer striking the firing pin/transfer bar. Presumably it also works on striker fired pistols such as Glocks.

It comes supplied with a daylight target which has a reflective coating. When I suggested to the Laserlyte PR person that another person would be needed to spot “hits”, she told me that it is obvious when you hit the reflective target but another person spotting could be useful.

I think this could be very popular with proponents of point shooting – a pistol shooting technique where instincts instead of sights are used to aim.

It comes with adapters to fit pistols in calibers .22 – .50 with a barrel at least 4″ long.

    A Clarification:

    Please see my two posts above. After emailing Laserlyte again, I finally got definitive answers to my questions and speculations.

    They state the LT-1 is accurate to 4 inches at 100 yards, and about an inch at 25 yards. This is more than good enough for pistol training. As far as battery life goes, they explained that in continuous mode it is about 1-1/2 hours. But in intermittent - training mode - they claim about 2000 shots per set of batteries. That is plenty too and more than reasonable, considering its price.

    Based on these I can give the LT-1 my complete recommendation.
