If you have a handgun with a rail, LaserLyte has a laser for it.
The company's new Lyte Ryder is billed as the most custom universal-fit laser on the market today. As long as a handgun has a Picatinny rail that is at least .7 inches in length, the new Lyte Ryder will fit.
With a single attachment screw, the Lyte Ryder also attaches in seconds. The laser itself is a Class 3A red laser inside of a specially designed housing that fits nearly any size pistol. The LaserLyte Lyte Ryder also features external windage and elevation adjustments.
The design of the housing is also snag-free to ensure quick drawing and holstering of a laser-equipped handgun in a stressful situation. The slim profile of the laser also prevents any chance of printing beyond the dimensions of the gun itself. An ambidextrous on/off button at the back of the laser housing provides fast and quick activation.
The laser has two programmable modes: constant-on and pulse. Both modes have an auto-off that engages after six minutes. In constant-on mode, the battery has an actual usage life of five hours, while the pulse mode has a battery life of 10 hours. The battery can be changed without removing the laser from the Picatinny rail.
The LaserLyte Lyte Ryder weighs .71 ounces and is made from 14 percent glass-filled nylon and aircraft-grade aluminum. The smallest available option is 1.32 inches long, while the full-size model is 1.9 inches.
The suggested retail for the Lyte Ryder is $121.
