Product Preview: Crimson Trace LG-360G Green Laserguard

posted on March 8, 2016

Adding to its growing catalog of green-laser products, Crimson Trace has announced the LG-360G Laserguard, designed for use with Smith & Wesson M&P full-size and compact pistols. Mounting securely to the firearm’s trigger guard and accessory rail in only a few seconds, the LG-360G is fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and has a master on/off switch. The laser also features Crimson Trace’s trademarked Instinctive Activation system, which automatically triggers the laser when the gun is held in a normal firing grip. Thanks to a partnership with S&W, in addition to being available for purchase as an aftermarket accessory, the LG-360G is also being packaged straight from the factory with select M&P models. The unit is powered by one 1/3N lithium battery, and Crimson Trace will send customers who register their products with the company one free battery per calendar year for life. Price: $300.
