Crimson Trace lasers are the best thing that ever happened to compact and sub-compact handguns. They make pocket pistols far easier to aim and can really help stretch the distance at which smaller handguns are useful. The Glock 42 is perhaps the most anticipated compact handgun to come along all year so it should come as no surprise that Crimson Trace is already developing their excellent Laserguard for it.
From Crimson Trace:
Crimson Trace announces a first-in-the-industry laser sighting system—the Laserguard® (LG-443)— that securely fits onto one of the industry’s newest handguns: the small Glock 42, a .380 caliber pistol designed for pocket carry and self-defense concealment. The new Glock 42 is designed to fit the hands of most women and shooters with smaller hands—and the new Laserguard LG-443 will add little to the firearm’s overall size or weight to continue with the smaller dimensions that the pistol offers consumers.
The Laserguard LG-443 will contain a powerful 650 nm red diode and be powered by a 1/3N battery. This new Laserguard will be activated utilizing Crimson Trace’s patented Instinctive Activation® and will fit securely to the firearm’s existing trigger guard without requiring any gunsmithing, pin removal or use of firearm retention screws. The full feature unit will also be user-adjustable for windage and elevation. This laser sight will have a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $229.
The new Laserguard LG-443 comes directly on the heels of Glock’s release of the new pistol’s details and will continue Crimson Trace’s wide range of products designed to help make Glock pistols a better defensive firearm. From the rail-mounted Rail Master® lights and lasers to the trigger guard mounted Lightguards®, plus the Lasergrips ® and Laserguards®, provide many options to accessorize numerous Glock models. For example, Crimson Trace’s Lasergrips are currently offered in 8 base models that will fit dozens of Glock pistols. Overall, Crimson Trace offers 17 laser sights and light models that fit onto more than 20 different Glock pistols.
