    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 29, 2007



    New LG-402M MIL-SPEC Lasergrip for Beretta 92/96 (M9) Now Available

    Wilsonville, OR —August 29, 2007: Crimson Trace introduces the company’s first 100% waterproof Lasergrips built to military specification MIL-STD-810F.  The new model LG-402M for the Beretta M9 pistol updates an existing product, incorporating a one-piece wrap-around grip with front activation, 100% waterproof electrical components, and more aggressively textured grip panels.
    Based on the needs of the military field use, Crimson Trace incorporated feedback from soldiers to assist in designing Lasergrips that meet the stringent military specification MIL-STD-810F.  In order to meet this particular designation, the Lasergrips are put through a battery of tests to prove their capability. From being submersed in a meter of water for 30 minutes to test its waterproof ability, to being exposed to salt fog for a total of 4 days, Crimson Trace Lasergrips passed the standards to meet the criteria of MIL-STD-810F. 
    The LG-402M rubberized front strap has two hard plastic wear-points on both sides of the activation strap for added durability under the harshest conditions.  The rugged and uniquely textured polymer side panels are effective with both a gloved hand and bare hands, even when wet.  A magnetized slot inside the grip itself is used to house a .050# hex wrench for sighting of the Lasergrips if needed.
    Two 2032 batteries located in each side of the Lasergrip, provide over 4 hours of a constant-on beam.  A master switch is located on the bottom of the grip to disable activation of the laser, allowing for traditional iron sight training.  Installation is a breeze. Just remove the four screws holding the stock panels on, install one battery in each of the side panels of the LG-402M, and re-install the Lasergrips in place of the stock panels. 
    All Lasergrips, including the LG-402M, have both windage and elevation adjustments for shooters to make adjustments on their own if needed. Lasergrips come pre-sighted from the factory at 50 feet.  All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for laser adjustments, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs.  A three-year warranty is standard. Suggested retail price is $399.00.
    Crimson Trace is the only manufacturer of grip-integrated laser sighting systems. Police, all branches of the U.S. Military, and responsible citizens worldwide use patented Lasergrips. Crimson Trace Lasergrips are recommended as an essential accessory by some of the world’s top firearm trainers.

    New Lasergrips® for the Smith & Wesson M&P Pistols Now Available

     

    Beaverton, OR —August 29, 2007: Crimson Trace will begin to ship the revolutionary new Lasergrips for several models of the Smith & Wesson M&P pistols starting in September.  The LG-660 fits the full-size M&P .40, 9mm, .357 SIG and .45 ACP calibers of pistols.  Suggested retail price is $329.00.

    The LG-660 is truly remarkable in its unique design.  It replaces the stock M&P back strap grip insert and snaps into place in just a few seconds using existing factory parts.  It is instinctively activated by a pressure switch built into the backstrap of the polymer Lasergrip. Simply grasping the firearm in a normal shooting grip activates the laser.  All electrical components fit into the Lasergrip, which is the same size and shape of the original M&P back strap.  This fully integrated laser sighting system is another Crimson Trace first in the marketplace.

    There are two #2032 batteries located in the palm swell on the sides of the Lasergrips, providing over 4 hours of a constant-on beam time.  The master switch is also located on the backstrap and uses a new touch sensor switch versus a mechanical switch as found on other Lasergrips.  This allows the user to turn the unit on or off even while using gloves.  Users simply press on hold the recessed pressure switch to turn the power on or off.  The texture of the unit is almost identical to the stock S&W grip.  Rubber overmolding on the backstrap covers the master on/off switch and the activation button, providing improved grip while shooting.

    Another new feature of the LG-660 is that it uses a smaller 3.3mm diameter laser diode versus the standard 5.6 diameter diode that is found in most all other brands of laser sighting devices.  This results in a lower profile diode housing that emits the same brightness as one almost twice its size.  As with all other Lasergrips, the LG-660 has both windage and elevation adjustments for shooters to make adjustments on their own.  All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for laser adjustments, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs.  A three-year warranty is standard.

    I just bought the LG-402M for my M9 from the factory.
    They give an LEO and Mil. discount. But the grips cost more than the pistol. Anything would be an improvement to issue.
    If it lives up to expectations, it will be good training at least.
    The Cal. still does not start .4.
    I have never needed a sighting aid in the past at pistol ranges.
    50 ft. seems odd. Is there a reason for that sight in range?

    50 feet is just over 15 meters. Is that the average range for engagement with a pistol?
