Crimson Trace today announced the newest prototype from its in-house design and engineering team - a Laserguard for the single stack M&P Shield in 9 mm and .40 S&W. At a targeted MSRP of $219, the new sight features their patented instinctive activation that allows the use to activate the laser by simply taking a natural firing grip, with no additional switches to press. Available via their regular dealer network and other channels of distribution, the Shield Laserguard will be officially launched in Q3.

Matching the lines and contours of the Shield while adding almost no bulk to the weapon, the Laserguard wraps around the pistol's trigger guard and index on the frame for a seamless, no-gunsmithing fit. Each comes zeroed from the factory at 50 feet and is equipped with windage and elevation screws so that the user can fine tune the system to their own firearm and ammunition and the each unit offers a 4-hour run time on one user-replaceable battery. "We've been working with Smith & Wesson on the Shield since the early days of its development," said Michael Caulk, director of engineering for Crimson Trace. "We're excited to be able to offer Shield owners the industry's best and most trusted laser sighting design for this excellent compact pistol."

All Crimson Trace products are proudly designed, engineered and built in the USA.
