Editors’ Picks 2017: Crimson Trace AK LiNQ

Crimson Trace introduced the LiNQ for the AR platform to great acclaim last year, and for 2017 the Oregon-based company has expanded the line with a new model that is compatible instead with Kalashnikov-pattern rifles (and, coincidentally, the Springfield M1A CQB). The system consists of a control unit that replaces the gun’s pistol grip and a light/laser module that can be mounted to any Picatinny rail segment on the rifle. Communicating wirelessly using a secure connection, the control unit, when grasped with the firing hand, activates the LiNQ’s green laser sight and/or 300-lumen white light (depending on the mode selected). crimsontrace.com
