Crimson Trace's fantastic Laserguard laser sight has been a reliable option for concealed carriers and home defenders for some time, offering simple, instinctive activation and an effective laser aiming aid. Now the company is improving the concept with its Laserguard Pro series by adding a 150-lumen LED white light to the compact unit.
As with previous Laserguards, the new Pro series features Instinctive Activation via a button on the front of the grip. The button easily depresses when the shooter grips the handgun in a natural firing position.
The new Crimson Trace Laserguard Pro has four modes of activation: laser and light, laser only, light only and laser and strobe light. The unit is user-adjustable for windage and elevation, comes equipped with a master on/off switch and has a battery life of around two hours. It's currently available for the Glock 42 and 43, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield and Springfield Armory XD-S pistols.
The Gun Digest editorial staff caught up with Crimson Trace at the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas to see the new Laserguard Pro firsthand. Check out the video above for more info and to see it in action.
