Did I seriously overpay ???? Maybe... but it works great and even works well in below freezing conditions...SO I'm happy...

It's worked for me in temps down to 20°F. I haven't used others, but I've heard reports from other folks regarding many GLPs that die when they get below 50. The Jasper does cost more, but seems to be worth it to me.

As for holders:
The great thing about this one is that the holder actually keeps the laser rather warm - the case can't radiate to the night sky and cool dramatically because of it.

Does the APC work ok in the cold?? and how do you mount it?? $19.99 is an attractive price!!
I have a Jasper APC too, because you can often get it for this price. But I use it for manually pointing out objects in the sky. Since I keep it in my pocket, I don't know how it would work in cold temps.
I use the Jasper Always because it was designed to be a GLP Finder. It has the on/off switch on the rear (like a ball-point pen clicker) which keeps it accessible when you mount it.
And you can buy a swivel-ball mount from Jasper which is designed to work with the Always. It's overpriced, but makes alignment extremely easy. While viewing through a low power EP in your scope (or RACI finder if you have one), just waive the GLP around until you see the tip of the beam ending in the middle of the view. Done.
