Crimson Trace Equips Walther PPS M2

(Wilsonville, OR)– Crimson Trace, recognized as America’s top brand of laser sights, today announced that the Laserguard® LG-482 (red) laser sight is now being offered as pre-installed equipment on the new PPS M2 semi-auto 9mm pistol by Walther®.

“When we introduced the new PPS M2 pistol without an accessory rail, people loved how smooth and slim the pistol was,” stated Luke Thorkildsen, Walther Arms VP of Marketing and Product Development. “The Crimson Trace Laserguard is the perfect addition to the compact PPS M2 because you get to have the best of both worlds.” The new pistol with installed Laserguard is available in stores across America and can be located by retailers using part number 2805963.

The innovative LG-482 Laserguard laser sight with red diode is designed to securely install around the trigger guard of the Walther pistol. Like many Crimson Trace® Laserguard products, these laser sights feature the company’s patented Instinctive ActivationTM, a feature designed to activate the laser when the firearm is held in a normal firing grip—and when the user is ready to fire. No other product in the laser sight market offers this capability. The Laserguard laser sights can be adjusted for windage and elevation, and are covered under Crimson Trace’s Free Batteries for Life program, as well as the company’s 3-year limited warranty.

The first Crimson Trace Laserguard was released to market in 2007. Today, Crimson Trace offers more than four dozen Laserguard products that fit firearms sold by more than a dozen manufacturers – all of which are well known for seamless integration and designs that mimic the firearm’s contours, Many Laserguards are also offered with red or green laser diode options. The LG-482 laser guard is also available as a standalone item at www.crimsontrace.com.

Tyrant Designs HALO Series MiniVert ForeGrip – Now Available

Tyrant Designs has been teasing for months about their newest product but the time has come. The HALO Series MiniVert ForeGrip is now available to order.

The MiniVert ForeGrip has Tyrant Designs’ signature style which is to say it looks like it was designed by a sentient computer and machined by CNC robots to be used on plasma guns wielded by a futuristic race of cyborgs. In short, it looks great… but looks aren’t everything. Care has been taken with its slight angle and well placed texturing to ensure that it performs well too.

Here is what Tyrant Designs had to say in their press release:

Tyrant Designs CNC, an industry leader in high-end aftermarket AR grips has just announced their release of the new HALO Series MiniVert, a vertical forward grip. With dimensions slightly smaller than the average AR-15 vert grip, the MiniVert sports an aggressive looking knurl and well thought out ergonomics. Coupled with the ability to fit directly to MLOK and Keymod rail systems this little grip packs a big punch. With an overall length just shy of 3 inches, Tyrant instead utilized an elongated lip at the bottom allowing the operator the option of either tucking their pinky behind or resting the finger the traditional way.

“With all of the positive feedback we have received from reviewers, dealers and social media, we are extremely excited to announce the official release of our HALO Series MiniVert! This concept took months of designing and field testing to make it as comfortable as possible while maintaining our well known aggressive styling. It truly is a vertical grip that can be used in all situations on various platforms to heighten the performance of the operator. We are pleased with how it came out and look forward to seeing it on AR’s everywhere. ”

You can check out the HALO Series MiniVert ForeGrip at a reduced, introductory price at TyrantCNC.com.


Easton, PA – April 11, 2017 – Scalarworks, manufacturer of high-performance firearm accessories, is pleased to introduce the Sync mount for Aimpoint Micro sights. The Sync is a low-profile optic mount that features an integral platform for the Aimpoint Micro line of red dot sights – as well as Micro compatible clones.

The Sync allows an Aimpoint Micro sight to be co-witnessed without obstructing one’s sight picture, and is the only optic mount for shotguns to be attached with 4 screws, thanks to our proprietary key-slot internal mounting system (Patent pending). The Sync is CNC milled from ultra high-strength 7075-T6 Hard coat anodized Aluminum, and weighs a mere 0.69oz (including custom CNC turned fasteners).

The Sync is compatible with all factory drilled and tapped Benelli shotguns, as well as most other shotguns with some gunsmithing. A drill and tap guide is available for download on our website.

The Sync is made in the USA, includes a limited lifetime warranty, and is available now from Scalarworks.com.

Sneak Peek: Forward Control Designs ABC/R v2

Forward Controls Design is working on a new version of their Augmented Bolt Catch/Release (ABC/R). The new ABC/R v2 will feature a thinner, tapered upper paddle instead of the lightening cuts found on the original ABR/R.

This change will cut weight where it counts the most on a bolt catch. Before someone pitches a hissy fit about how lightweight AR accessories are out of control… It is important to keep any additional weight on the bolt catch to minimum. Additional weight on the paddle can cause reliability issues like the bolt locking back before the magazine is empty. I’ve seen these malfunctions caused by a number of aftermarket products that attach to the bolt release.

Sneak Peek: Scalarworks OPS Sights

You may remember the sneak peek of early prototype sights from Scalarworks that we showed months ago. Now we have a look at a more refined, closer to production set of these sights.

The front sight is radically skeletonized like you would expect from Scalarworks and weighs .94 ounces. The photo shows it’s tool-free elevation adjustment via a thumb wheel under the front sight post.

The rear sight is also skeletonized and weighs 1.35 ounces. It also features tool-free adjustment via a cleverly designed, dished wheel that prevents the accidental turning that can happen with some rear sight drums.

Stay tuned for pricing and availability. Keep an eye on Scalarworks.com.
