Imagine, if you will, the instant you have to make decisions in a self-defense situation.  Someone may live.  Someone may die.  You must identify your target quickly, and engage accordingly.  Enter the Lightguard™ line of weapon mounted lights - featuring the same Instinctive Activation™ that Crimson Trace laser sights made famous.  Now, fast activation extends to a sleek 100 to 130-Lumen white light that doesn’t extend past the barrel.

Lightguard pairs perfectly with Crimson Trace Lasergrips®, (available for select models).  Activate the light.  Identify the threat.  Simultaneously activate the laser to acquire the target.  All while keeping one hand free to dial 911, direct your family, or stabilize yourself in the darkness.  Instant activation, speed, and accuracy in self-defense situations.  We call it Lightguard.  You might just call it the ultimate in empowerment and convenience.

Weapon-mounted white lights have become a standard for personal protection and home defense firearms.  The Instinctive Activation of the Crimson Trace Lightguard sets it apart from the competition by it’s wide, yet surprisingly bright, light beam.  Lightguard models are offered for GLOCK Full-Size & Compact pistols, Springfield Armory XD & XD(M) pistols, Smith & Wesson M&P Full-Size pistols, and 1911 pistols from Kimber, Ruger and Smith & Wesson.

To round out a complete personal defense weapon system, Lightguard models are compatible with Crimson Trace Lasergrips (sold separately).  Both light and laser are individual units, operating independently with a normal firing hold on your handgun.  The ability to both identify and accurately target a threat – in the dark – can make all the difference when your life is on the line, and seconds count.  

In addition, Crimson Trace has worked with several top holster manufacturers including: Crossbreed, DeSantis, Galco, and Mitch Rosen to offer custom concealed carry holster solutions for Lightguard-equipped pistols.  These quality holster choices allow the carrier safely carry and conceal their pistol with leather, polymer or hybrid holsters that are custom designed to snugly fit the unique profile of your pistol.

"Bad things typically happen in the dark, and when they do happen - you need light - instant light, like the Crimson Trace Lightguard™ system."
