It ain't easy being green, that's how the expression goes, right? In this case, it hasn't been easy getting green, either. Ever since Crimson Trace came out with a green laser, fans of Glock handguns have been clamoring for a unit for their favorite carry gun.
The wait is over! Crimson Trace just released the LG-639G, the very-familiar Lasergrip for the Gen3 Glock midsize (models G19, G23, G32, and G38; also the G25 for those outside the U.S.). It attaches and functions identically to the original LG-639 in red, with the obvious exception of the green laser.
One of the first noticeable differences between the red laser and the green is the number of batteries. Green requires more power—twice the power, in fact—so four batteries are required to project that green dot on your target. At least Crimson Trace offers free batteries for life!
