The latest addition is the LG-917, a wood-based laser grip that’s designed for the popular full-size Model 1911 pistol. As part of the company’s premium line, these laminate grips have a rich and stunning cocobolo finish.

Sighted in at the factory at 50 feet, Master Series Lasergrips are user-adjustable for windage and elevation. These innovative grips feature the most powerful laser available by law. The new LG-917 laser sight permits windage and elevation adjustments (tools are provided), features a precise red laser diode optic, and is precision machined to exactly fit the firearm’s frame. This cocobolo laser sight is crafted from all natural laminated wood materials. Batteries are included-and this product qualifies for Crimson Trace’s free batteries for life program.

Crimson Trace Introduces Laserguard® Sight for Springfield Armory XD-S Pistol

(Wilsonville, OR) The hot, new XD-S pistol from Springfield Armory will soon have the ultimate in laser sights from the leader in the category – Crimson Trace. The popular Laserguard® model will be available in November with an MSRP of $219 through the company’s normal distribution network and direct from crimsontrace.com. The popularity of the XD-S hinges on its surprisingly slim frame, which makes the Laserguard platform the perfect combination because it adds no width or bulk to this compact .45 ACP pistol. With a powerful caliber and compact frame, aiming can cause a challenge to shooters. The Laserguard allows the user to get on target quickly due to its patented Instinctive Activation advantage.

The Laserguard platform is essential equipment to conceal carry firearms – not a simple accessory. The entire unit adds virtually no weight to the firearm and is quickly and easily installed by the user simply securing around the trigger guard with provided screws. The profile for the pistol does change which is why Crimson Trace works with top holster manufacturers to create holster solutions for all Laserguard equipped firearms. Check out the Holster Resource Guide for details on all models. Each Laserguard is pre sighted from the factory at 50′ and is fully adjustable by the user to fine tune it to their chosen self defense ammunition. Featuring the most powerful laser allowable by law, the unit offers an industry leading 2 hour run time on one, easily replaced 1/3N battery, which also qualifies for the Crimson Trace ‘Batteries for Life’ program.

All CTC products are proudly designed, engineered and made in their state of the art facility in Oregon. “The Laserguard is the ideal laser option for this revolutionary XD-S pistol from Springfield Armory,” said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. “We’re looking forward to launching several more models this year to further enhance other compact handguns, providing gun owners the assurance to become more confident and accurate shooters, as only Crimson Trace products can.”

Crimson Trace’s Revolutionary Green Lasergrips® Coming Soon

(Wilsonville, OR) Crimson Trace will launch five new Lasergrips which feature the industry’s smallest green diode before the end of the year.

All five of these models will be available in December through normal distribution and from www.crimsontrace.com, starting at $299.

Although the human eye perceives green lasers as being brighter, until now they have had several drawbacks when it came to power consumption, performance in cold weather and overall size. Crimson Trace has solved all of these by developing an entirely new laser package, no larger than the tried and tested red version currently used in its award-winning Lasergrips. “We have been anticipating and perfecting this line of green Lasergrips over this past year,” explained Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. “Our goal was to deliver the most visible and consistent green laser available on the market in our flagship platform and we’re proud to have accomplished everything we set out to do.” Finding holstershttp://www.crimsontrace.com/products/type/custom-holsters to accommodate firearms equipped with these green Lasergrips is simple as the grips do not interfere with most standard holster options.

Featuring the most powerful laser allowable by law, the units offer an industry leading 2 hour run time on two, easily replaced #2032 batteries.

Affordable InfraRed Laser Sights from Crimson Trace® – Available Now

(Wilsonville, OR) Drawing heavily on technology developed in support of America’s warfighters by its defense division, Crimson Trace is proud to introduce a line of InfraRed (IR) laser sights (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/type/infrared-laser-sights) for the civilian market. Observable only through night vision equipment, these laser sights offer the user the ability to mark a target invisibly, which is a boon for predator control, security personnel or anyone involved in the growing sport of hog hunting. Due to ITAR restrictions, these new IR sights are available through select distributors, online retailers and direct fromwww.crimsontrace.com and are the most cost-effective solution for anyone who seeks to add a covert night sighting solution to their firearm, listing at MSRPs of between $299 and $599.

In order to assure the widest possible number of gun fitments, the IR lasers available include the award-wining MVF-515 (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/manufacturer/ar15-m16-rifles/01-2550) vertical foregrip and the hugely popular Rail Master™ (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/type/rail-master/01-9693) mini laser. The Rail Master fits almost any firearm with a Picatinny rail and adds less than 2oz to the overall weight, while incorporating the most powerful laser available by law. The MVF-515 has an incredibly long run time and offers the additional benefit of a blinding, 200 lumen white light to enable the use of daytime optics as well as night vision devices. Crimson Trace also introduces IR versions of its patented Instinctive Activation Lasergrips® for the 1911 (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/manufacturer/1911-pistols/01-1206)
and Glock (http://www.crimsontrace.com/products/manufacturer/glock-pistols/01-2436)
pistols, assuring the same night vision compatible performance for sidearms.

The company subjected the new IR sights to the same rigorous testing protocols as their standard products, but in this instance went a little further. “Listening to our customers and the marketplace, adding these IR platforms to our commercial line up address consistent requests we receive as the market leader,” said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. “In preparation for the launch, we field-tested the Rail Master’s performance on two Texas hog hunts this spring. In both cases, they turned in outstanding performances and surpassed our already high expectations on multiple weapon platforms in complete darkness.”

All Crimson Trace products are proudly designed, engineered and built in the USA.
