Crimson Trace on Ruger American Pistol

Wilsonville, OR

Ruger’s recent release of its new American Pistol™ adds to the many options to consider when buying a concealed-carry or home-defense handgun—or a new pistol. Now the options to ponder with that purchase have increased because numerous Crimson Trace Rail Masters® and Rail Master Pros® will fit that pistol’s M-1913 Picatinny rail.

Utilizing Crimson Trace’s innovative Secure Lock Technology™, Rail Master Pros will easily and quickly attach to the Ruger American pistol’s under-the-muzzle rail system. Several inserts included with the Rail Master Pro permit easily attaching the laser sight and light combo units to numerous firearms, and all Rail Master Pros can be quickly switched from gun to gun in mere seconds. Rail Master Pros are available with powerful red laser sights (CMR-205) and green laser sights (CMR-204). Both are coupled with a bright 100-Lumen LED white light in a durable CNC-machined aluminum housing.

The operation modes for Rail Master Pros include: light and laser, laser sight only, light only and a strobing light paired with the laser sight. A micro computer inside the unit provides the instructions to the light and laser sight to project the mode the user desires. Instant Activation® permits easy tap-on and tap-off operation and mode selection. Rail Master Pros are compact—smaller than a standard matchbox. The battery life is up to four hours, and the unit automatically powers-down after five minutes of inactivity.

Five models of Crimson Trace Rail Masters are available to also equip Ruger’s new American Pistol. Rail Master model options include: green laser sight (CMR-206), red laser sight (CMR-201), a red laser sight with a coyote tan exterior housing finish (CMR-201CTAN), and bright 100-Lumen LED white lights (CMR-202/CMR-202CTAN). The Rail Master light units can be operated in: momentary, strobe, and constant-on lighting. Rail Masters are widely recognized as the smallest, easiest to operate, and most powerful laser sights in the firearms industry’s compact laser sight category. 

The Manufacterer’s Suggested Retail Price of the CMR-206 (green) Rail Master is $229 and the MSRP of the CMR-204 (green) Rail Master Pro is $379.
