The Crimson Trace Lightguard® for 1911 Pistols features a highly compact and slim design specifically for ease of holstering. Its 130 lumen tactical white light seamlessly attaches to your non-railed Kimber or Smith & Wesson 1911 Full size, Compact or Bobtail non railed 1911 by attaching securely to the triggerguard.  Compatible with Crimson Trace Lasergrips®, Lightguard also uses the same instinctive activation that Crimson Trace laser sights are famous for. Lightguard removes the need for a flashlight separate from the pistol – giving you a free hand. Both of these low-light tools can be operated separately or simultaneously with a single hand.  The LTG-701 features an ergonomic front activation pad (that works seperately with Lasergrips) that activates when your pistol is held in a natural firing grip.

Will only fit Kimber and Smith & Wesson Full-Size and Compact frames without accessory rail.

  1. All around great accessory for my 1911! Review by Kris
    Rating

    This light was easy to install and works great in combination with a set of laser grips I also installed. Forget what was said by one reviewer that the light is not bright enough. Folks, you're not trying to light up a night time construction site! After installation I turned off all the lights in my house and fired up the Lightguard. Even from a distance of 15-20 yards the light was plenty bright to make out any detail of any intruder in my sights. The activation button sits at the rear immediately below the trigger guard. This is perfect. When I installed the laser grips, also CTC, the grip laser activation button sits immediately below and perpendicular to the light activation button above it. Thus, with a single press of my middle finger I can activate both the light and the laser. Sweet! It's a great combination! (Posted on 9/22/2018)


  2. Not Bright Enough Review by Rick D
    Rating

    Almost perfect for my Springfield, but 130 lumens just isn’t bright enough. 400 lumens, even with a shorter run time, would make it so. (Posted on 7/23/2018)


  3. Good eqipment Review by Carl
    Rating

    I did put this light on my Colt Defender model. A very minute amount of filing to get it to close around the trigger guard.
    Oh, I installed this light in 2013 and it is in perfect working order and I carry this gun every day.
    Thanks Crimson Trace! (Posted on 4/29/2018)


  4. Poor switch location on an awesome product. Review by Miles
    Rating

    I have several Crimson Trace Light/Laser Guard products and usually they are awesome. This particular model is not due to the poor switch location. Placing the light switch horizontally under the guard makes it difficult to activate when you need it and easy to activate accidentally. I could only get it to flash intermittently when drawing or moving but I could not get it to activate continuously on demand. Maybe my hand geometry but in any case, I greatly prefer the switch to be vertical on the grip. This model is unusable. So very sad because I love my 1911s. (Posted on 3/14/2018)

  6. Works awesome Review by Josh
    Rating

    I just got the light for Christmas it fits perfect of my kimber ultra raptor. I just found a guy on Facebook making custom holsters for this gun and light. I love the brightness. Defiently a recommendation for a railess gun. (Posted on 1/1/2015)


  7. Doesn't fit Ruger SR1911 Review by Collin
    Rating

    Doesn't fit on my Ruger SR1911. Don't waste your time and money unless you can try to fit before buying.

  8. Works on Colt Government Review by Siffert
    Rating

    Another reviewer claimed this did not fit on his Colt MK1V Series 70 Government. I have the same Colt Government in stock condition and the LTG-701 fits A-OK on it. You do have to "nudge" it some to fit but it does fit and work. Not the brightest of lights, but then again, for home defense you do not want a light to blind yourself upon waking up in the middle of the night like many other higher lumen lights.. This LTG-701 is also working in conjunction with my LaserGrip LG-401. (Posted on 2/23/2013)


  9. Awesome Item - Kimber 1911 Ultra Carry II w/ Lasergrip / 701 Light Guard Review by Tim
    Rating

    I bought this when it first came out, snaps onto my Kimber 1911 Ultra Carry II perfectly and easily. I installed it within 10 minutes? This light is INSANE for how small it is. I'm no mathematician but I would say about 20-30ft in front of you? And it shines about 15-20ft wide. The only other thing I can say is that it works FANTASTIC with my Laser grips as well, they both set off with ease when I hold my firearm and mesh well together. I can see the laser while the light is shining bright. Oh, and for holster, I had a local fellow mold my Kimber with the light on it, and he made a custom IWB holster, works great!!

  10. Colt doesn't make the cut. Not a 1911? Review by Tom
    Rating

    LTG-701 Did NOT fit my Colt Mk IV/Series 70. Confirmed by your customer support. I carved it out to fit the trigger guard but I would not call it a simple job. Very tedious and lots of trial fitting. I love the function now but was very disappointed in the misleading description. So was my gun dealer. Fooled both of us.
    Hope a range test shows no problems.
    Apparently the review below applies to the Lasergrips not the Lightguard. You may want to remove it from the page for the Lightguard as you make no model for the Colt 1911. ?????!!
    Have 4 sets of Lasergrips and they all fit perfectly. 5*.

    Below is pasted from your web site.
    WRITTEN BY: Shooter Looks perfect
    I love how it looks on my Colt. Didn't need to change anything for elevation or windage out of the box. Love it.

  11. Finally a Light for Railless Guns Review by Harmony Hermit
    Rating

    Installed on my Colt Commander Stainless. Works perfectly and instinctively with lasergrips. Nice to have a light on one of my handguns as none of my guns have rails.

    One small complaint is that the light will not work on my Gold Cups as the trigger is too wide. Might work with some surgery but am not sure it will stay on if I do and it would probably void the warranty. Fortunately my normal carry/bedside Colt has a normal width trigger.

  12. Excellent! Review by Tim

    Fantastic! Was anticipating its development. However, we really need a holster ASAP. Hope that's in the works too. (Posted on 3/17/2012)

    Hopefully you wil design a holster to accomodate your laser sight and flashlight. The sooner the better!!!! (Posted on 3/9/2012)
