Thinking caps on, Crimson Trace has been churning through some intriguing additions to its catalog late this year. Breaking into red-dot sights and riflescopes qualify as a pretty big deal for a company that’s earned its tucker at a decidedly different end of the aiming solutions market. That said, the company isn’t jettisoning the niche it helped define any time soon, and has a few fascinating new laser sights it’s pulling out of its sleeve. The Lasersaddle for the Mossberg shotguns definitely qualifies as one.
Wait, what? A laser sight for a shotgun? Isn’t that akin to a laser sight for a sledgehammer? Certainly, precision isn’t exactly either blunt instrument’s forte — close range or otherwise. Yet, Crimson Trace has method well designed into its shotgun laser madness. Particularly pertaining to low light situations, the LS-250 and LS-250G could prove an indispensable asset for fast target acquisition. Especially considering the firearm it’s specifically designed for — the Mossberg’s pistol-grip, smoothbore Shockwave. An effective tool, but not one exactly know for facilitating dead-nuts holds — until Crimson Trace got ahold of it.
The Lasersaddle is compatible with most other 500 and 590s, so it’s not strictly a Shockwave affair. In any case, there’s plenty to like about the design, especially if you’re a minimalist. Installing over the receiver, the sight doesn’t junk up a gun and has three distinct activation points for convenience. Those who’ve struggled to find an unobtrusive and intuitive flashlight or laser rig for their pump-action understand the advantages Crimson Trace has engineered into the Lasersaddle sheerly off where it’s positioned.
