Crimson Trace LG-422 Laserguard Red Laser Sight For Sig Sauer P365

Firearms Accessories Crimson Trace 2

Whenever a new gun hits the market, the first question in every potential customer’s mind is, Can I get accessories for it? This was the case when the new Sig P365 came out in 2018. One criticism of the Sig was its proprietary accessory rail that wouldn’t fit most off-the-shelf lasers. Crimson Trace smartly addressed this with the introduction of the LG-422 Laserguard Red Laser Sight, specifically designed for the Sig’s unique mounting system. MSRP: $229 (red); $309 (green)

Caldwell Brass Catcher

CMC AR-15 Tactical Trigger Group

Firearms Accessories CMC AR-15 Trigger

One of the first things serious AR owners upgrade on their new setup is the trigger. Factory triggers are usually reliable, but they are also usually mediocre when it comes to pull weight and action. One new option in the drop-in trigger world is the CMC AR-15 Tactical Trigger Group, available in 2-, 3.5-, 4-, 5- or 6-pound pull weights. The curved-faced, single-stage trigger offers a great alternative to the typical factory trigger at a reasonable cost for an upgrade. MSRP: Starts at $167.95

CMMG Receiver Extension And Brace Kit, Ripbrace, Micro/CQB

Firearms Accessories CMMG

CMMG has expanded its line of “Rip” products with the quick-deploy RipBrace pistol brace for your AR pistol. Available as either an add-on or as part of a CMMG AR pistol, the RipBrace extends without a need to depress any buttons or latches to engage the telescoping motion. The brace locks into place once opened and does require a latch release to close. However, deployment is lighting quick and gets the gun into the fight faster. MSRP: $199.95

Tango Down BG-AKOE Battlegrip
