Drawing heavily on technology developed in support of America's warfighters by its defense division, Crimson Trace is proud to introduce a line of InfraRed (IR) laser sights for the civilian market. Observable only through night vision equipment, these laser sights offer the user the ability to mark a target invisibly, which is a boon for predator control, security personnel or anyone involved in the growing sport of hog hunting. Due to ITAR restrictions, these new IR sights are available through select distributors, online retailers and direct from www.crimsontrace.com and are the most cost-effective solution for anyone who seeks to add a covert night sighting solution to their firearm, listing at MSRPs of between $299 and $599.

In order to assure the widest possible number of gun fitments, the IR lasers available include the award-wining MVF-515 vertical foregrip and the hugely popular Rail Master mini laser. The Rail Master fits almost any firearm with a Picatinny rail and adds less than 2 ounces to the overall weight, while incorporating the most powerful laser available by law. The MVF-515 has an incredibly long run time and offers the additional benefit of a blinding, 200 lumen white light to enable the use of daytime optics as well as night vision devices. Crimson Trace also introduces IR versions of its patented Instinctive Activation Lasergrips for the 1911 and Glock pistols, assuring the same night vision compatible performance for sidearms.

The company subjected the new IR sights to the same rigorous testing protocols as their standard products, but in this instance went a little further. "Listening  to our customers and the marketplace, adding these  IR platforms to our commercial line up address consistent requests we receive as the market leader," said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. "In preparation for the launch, we  field-tested the Rail Master's performance on two Texas hog hunts this spring.  In both cases, they turned in outstanding performances and surpassed our already high expectations on multiple weapon platforms in complete darkness."
