Crimson Trace announced today the release of the highly anticipated green Laserguard® and Rail Master™ products. This initial release of the green laser sight line includes Laserguard models for Kimber and Smith & Wesson 1911 frames, GLOCK full-size and compact, and Springfield Armory XD and XD(M) firearms. The Rail Master model is designed to fit on firearms equipped with a Picatinny rail - making it the ultimate in universal green laser sighting systems. All four of these models are available now through normal distribution and from http://www.crimsontrace.com (as available) starting at $269.00.
"By now, most consumers are savvy enough to know that green lasers have always been power-hungry compared to their red counterparts," explained Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. "By mounting them in front of the trigger guard, we're able to utilize battery power in both a functional design-friendly way significantly more than ever - which means our customers never have to compromise on run time." Just as important as the green laser product introduction, holsters from Blade-Tech, Mitch Rosen, DeSantis, Crossbreed, and Galco will be available to fit these new green laser sights.
The Laserguard platform is the ideal and ultimate addition to concealed carry firearms. The unit is quickly and easily installed by the user simply securing it around the trigger guard with provided screws. The profile of 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 more details on holster fits for Crimson Trace-equipped pistols.
The Rail Master platform has become a success story virtually overnight. The unique design attaches to any firearm with a Picatinny (or Weaver-style) accessory rail and will not move due to the Secure Lock Technology™ system. Each unit comes standard with four inserts that are easily interchangeable to fit a wide range of pistols and long guns equipped with a rail, and activates with a simple, easy to reach activation.
Both the Laserguard and Rail Master are pre-sighted from the factory at 50' and are fully adjustable by the user to fine tune it to their chosen self-defense ammunition. Featuring the most powerful laser allowable by law, the units offer an industry leading 2 hour run time on one easily replaced CR2 battery.
All Crimson Trace products are proudly designed, engineered and built in the USA.
