September 28, 2012

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 companion 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 concealed 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.  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 our run time on one, easily replaced 1/3N battery, which also qualifies for the Crimson Trace "Free 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."
