Crimson Trace is now shipping its recently released tactical lights designed for long guns. The lights offer touch-pad activation when installed on the firearm with the provided pad. Alternatively, the light can be removed from the attachment bracket to serve double duty as a hand-held flashlight. The lights ship with the activation touch pad and single cord attachment cap, plus the flashlight end cap. The activation touch pad can be secured to a firearm with the provided hook-and-loop straps or with a more permanent double-sided adhesive strip.

The CWL-100 model provides 500 lumens of LED white light on high mode, and 50 lumens on low beam. It is designed for installation on long guns with Picatinny accessory rails. The CWL-101 is designed for use with firearms equipped with M-Lok and Keymod accessory rails.

The CWL-200 light provides 900 lumens of LED white light on high mode, and 90 lumens when activated on low beam. It is designed for installation on long guns with Picatinny accessory rails. The CWL-201 provides the same lighting features but is designed for attachment to firearms with M-Lok and Keymod accessory rails.
