The LG-453 Laserguard® is Crimson Trace’s first Springfield green laser sight and is designed to fit seamlessly on the trigger guard of Springfield Armory’s popular line of XD and XD(M) pistols with Full-Size frames. The LG-453 takes the excellent low-light sighting capabilities of red laser sights to a new level. The human eye processes the color green more than any other color and Crimson Trace offers the brightest green laser available, making the LG-453 a versatile laser sighting system for all lighting conditions.
Providing over two hours of run time on a single (1) CR2 battery, such incredible battery life has never been offered by the green laser market. Additionally, the LG-453 Laserguard platform is the most lightweight and compact green laser sight available for Springfield XD and XD(M) pistols. The Laserguard is quickly and easily user-installed in minutes without gunsmithing.
In addition to the powerful green laser, great battery life, and compact design, the LG-453 offers windage and elevation adjustments (with provided wrenches), and a Master On/Off switch, allowing the user to completely power down the unit.
As with all Crimson Trace Laserguard models, the LG-453 features Crimson Trace’s patented Instinctive Activation™. Instinctive Activation allows the operator to activate the laser by simply holding the firearm with a normal shooting grip. No other brand can claim that. No one else builds them close.
Proudly Made in the USA.

Outstanding Review by Bill M.
Received my new LG-453 for my XDM 3.8 Compact 9mm. Attached in just a couple of minutes. Been working with the guns mounted sights and can hold a "Pretty Tight" grouping. Fired it with the new LG-453 and now I can say that I can hold "Tight" groupings. The laser made for very accurate shots while practicing holster draws from multiple positions. My wife was so impressed with it that she just ordered a LG-489G for her M&P Shield 9mm. (Posted on 2/18/15)
Green Point Blank Review by DeathDfyD
Just got my LG-453 and installed it on my XDM 9mm 4.5" and the laser is very easy to see in daylight conditions or brightly lit rooms. It doesn't matter if the target is 10 feet or 50 feet and beyond. You are basically point blank with this laser and cant miss unless you have a sneezing/allergy attack or something, and even then I still think you would hit your mark. The fit feels solid on the gun when easily installed, and you don't feel like if you accidentally bang the weapon against something that the laserguard is going to fall off like some of the more delicate mounted lasers. Definitely inspires confidence for home defense when quick reaction time means everything. I highly recommend this product for both its quality and its capability. (Posted on 9/18/14)
XD(M) compact Review by gstell
While the LG-453 is advertised for the XD and XD(M) full-size, I have a compact XD(M - 3.8) and the LG-453 fits the rails just fine. The only small issue is that it is it is about 1/4" longer than the barrel. But no problem, the weapon is still a very good concealed carry weapon. The green laser lights up the surrounding area at night and is visible at over 50 ft during the bright day light. Haven't had it on the range as of yet, but I am pretty sure it will improve accuracy. Were I to be lit up by the green laser, I would find it very intimidating. Now to get a new carry holster. (Posted on 6/26/13)
GREAT!!!! Review by CrossDraw
I have a red laser for my sub compact 3", and now the green 453 for my XD 9mm V10 4". The green is the best and shows in bright daylight. Outstanding products from Crimson Trace. I am left handed and Crossbreed Holsters makes holsters for Crimson Trace lefties and it is an inside the waistband and is great!!! EP,Texas (Posted on 5/13/13)
Fantastic laser Review by Michael
I have had mine now for about 6 months, it's mounted to my XDm 5.25 .40 very easy to install and adjust. Very tight shot groups every time, had to use it for real one night outside the house for a possible prowler, scanned across the front hedges with the laser and wow very intense. If the bad guy happened to see it, I'm sure he wet himself. I just bought an XDm 3.8 compact .40 and will be buying another LG453 for it. (Posted on 4/27/13)
Great Review by Joe
I have both a LG448 for myXDM 3.9 and a grip laser for my 1911 and both have been and are great. Reason I purchased them is for accuracy during an emergency inside and outside the home. (Posted on 4/2/13)
Ridiculous Review by Merlinstrik
Broad daylight 50 yards away? Ya, I see the green dot. Insane. Lights up the damn room in the dark (for that personal protection touch). I do not represent or know anybody who owns the green laser from Crimson Trace. All I know is, I did my research (so did Crimson Trace, obviously) and they proved my research correct. You will find no better green laser device. Buy it already, before you wish you wish you did. FYI, fits Springfield XD-40 nicely, now for a positive review on a holster. Crimson?!!

Two Thumbs Up Review by Walter
I recieved my LG 453 Green Laser about 10 days after ordering online. The process was painless and exactly as advertised.
The Laser I attached to my XDM 3.8 Compact fit perfectly and was assembled by myself onto my gun in 5 minutes. The laser is very strong and the workmanship of the laser is outstanding. Be advised on the 3.8 compact the laser sticks about 1/8" out past the end of the gun barrel. This is not an issue at all with me and the gun performs wonderfully with the easy to activate strap button.
I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to put a laser on their XDM. I use mine with the supertuck cc made for it by CTC.

makes my XD 9mm deadly accurate. Review by stigloc
Installed easily on my brand new Springfield xd 9mm. It's been years since I shot a pistol. I was able to group a 6 inch pattern at 40 feet without making any adjustment. My son was unable duplicate a pattern with his Smith- Wesson 9mm. Handed him mine and he was able to group the same pattern. Needless to say he's getting a Crimson Trace laser for his 9 mm. Looks amazing and intimating. Very happy with purchase. (Posted on 1/13/13)
