Q: How do I install the RL-1?
A: Once the stock rear sight is removed, the laser installs into the dovetails with a brass punch that comes with the laser. If you are unfamiliar with removing stock rear sights, we suggest consulting either Glock, your gun manual or taking the firearm to a certified gunsmith.
Q: How do I sight in the laser?
A: There are two screws located on the laser. One is on the top of the laser and is for elevation adjustment; the one on the right side of the laser is for windage adjustment.
Q: What do I do if I’m having trouble sighting the laser in?
A: Try the reset process; back the screws out for both the elevation and windage until there is a thread or two showing on each screw. Then let the laser sit turned off for about a half hour to an hour so that it resets. We suggest making small adjustments and working between the two screws until the laser’s dot sits on top of the front sight. You will need to make your final adjustments at the range and make sure your last adjustment is clockwise.
Q: What size Hex wrench do the adjustment screws use?
A: The adjustment screws use a .035 Hex wrench. If you lose yours and cannot find one please contact customer service at 928-649-3201, and we will send you a new one.
