Introduced in 2016 for use with AR-pattern rifles, the Crimson Trace LiNQ light/laser system is now offered for Kalashnikov-style carbines—as well as other guns that utilize AK-type pistol grips, such as the Springfield M1A CQB. LiNQ pairs a control unit that replaces the firearm’s grip with a light/laser module that can be mounted to any two-slot section of Picatinny rail on the rifle, allowing the two to communicate wirelessly using a secure connection. As a result, when the user assumes a natural grip on the control unit, LiNQ’s green laser sight and/or its 300-lumen white light, depending on the mode selected, will automatically activate. Alternatively, the light/laser can be controlled manually via a push-button located on the rear of the module. Price: $380. Contact: Crimson Trace Corp.; (800) 442-2406; crimsontrace.com.
