I would get the LaserMax guide rod style laser if it were me.  I like the fact it doesn't add any additional bulk to the pistol to contend with that might interfere with a holster and doesn't alter the appearance or handling qualities of the pistol.

2 points of caution on the Lasermax (I've looked at them for beretta M9 and 1911):

1.  I have heard some reports of the guide rod assembly breaking, thus preventing the gun from cycling properly.

2.  The switch is activated by pressing in on a button on the slide release, most means of carry involve pressing on in on the sides, thus accidentally activating the laser.

My recommendation, depending on use, would be rail mounted or maybe the new site-mounted lasers (though I have seen some reports of these failing, the failure of the laser in no way causes the weapon to be inoperable.)

Chris told me he has a Lasermax in a Sig.  I too wondered about #2 happening and asked him about this.  He said he didn't have an issue with it turning on inadvertently.  The other concern I had was with the slide spring.  The Lasermax comes with a replacement spring that you have to use in place of the spring that came with the pistol.  The Sig spring is braided and supposedly that contributes to longevity, which is one of Sig's strengths.  The Lasermax spring doesn't look as robust as the stock Sig spring to me, but the handful of people I've talked to who have one have reported no issues.
 
Nevertheless, I personally don't like add-ons to pistols that increase their form factor.  I haven't heard much negative talk about the LaserMax, so I'd be willing to try it for this reason, armed with the realization that there's almost no such thing as a product with more than one component that's immune to failure.

I had a crimson trace on a G26 and it was nice but it added to much bulk to the grip so if I were to get one again it would be either a lasermax guide rod laser or a light and laser combo

I have a Crimson Trace on both a 1911 and a P229 and have had no issues with either. They both work just fine with my holsters and they both add very little bulk to the grip. But I would not get a Crimson Trace for a Glock how ever. They add too much bulk to the grip.
