LaserLyte’s announced their new-again RTB-XD top-mounted laser for Springfield XD and XDm pistols. Evidently planning to equip the entire polymer pistol world, the RTB-XD compliments LaserLyte’s RTB-GL model for Glocks. The RTB-XD will slide right into the rear sight dovetail on any XD variant gun. The best thing about a top-mounted laser: you don’t need a new holster. So you won’t have to toss out the rig(s) you already own just because you decided to trick out your pistol with a frickin’ laser beam. And the price is nice, too – $139 MSRP, which puts retail in the $110 range. Ish. Full press release after the jump . . .
COTTONWOOD, AZ (February 2012) – LaserLyte®, the leader in laser technology for the shooting sports market for 25 years, brings down the price and ups the performance with the LaserLyte RTB-XD. LaserLyte® returns to basics with the patented RTB-XD rear sight laser that fits the Springfield XD/XDM firearms. The high performance laser built into a rear sight specifically designed for Springfield XD/XDM pistols features a simple, ambidextrous “press and go” activation. The laser is easily programmable to either constant on or pulse mode. Another great feature is the “auto-off” feature that displays a unique flash after 5-minutes of operation and automatically turns the unit off after 6-minutes.
Made from heavy-duty, high carbon steel for added durability, the LaserLyte RTB-XD rear sight laser has a black chrome finish for corrosion prevention. A great benefit of the LaserLyte RTB-XD rear sight laser is that the customer will not have to replace grips, internal stock parts or holsters. The LaserLyte RTB-XD rear sight laser is compatible with all Level 1 and Level 2 holsters including the BLACKHAWK!® SERPA® holster system. MSRP on the LaserLyte RTB-XD rear sight laser for all Springfield XD/XDM’s is only $139.95.
