LIGHTGUARD™ - INSTINCTIVE ILLUMINATION FOR HANDGUNS

Crimson Trace is proud to announce the introduction of the Lightguard™ platform for defensive pistols.  Featuring a rugged 100 lumen white light controlled by a patented instinctive activation system, the user now has an illumination device that fits seamlessly to the gun.  Due to its low mass, the Lightguard does not appreciably alter the pistol's balance or increase the incidence of malfunctions, while its slim profile makes for easy holstering.

 

 

 

Fully compatible with selected Crimson Trace Lasergrips®, the Lightguard platform allows the user to equip their pistol with both essential low light tools, either of which can be operated independently and with one hand.  In a defensive situation, this can be a decisive advantage as instead of holding a light, the support hand is free for other tasks.  Initially available to fit GLOCK, Springfield XD / XD(m), and Smith & Wesson M&P handguns, additional models will be introduced for other firearms.
