Crimson Trace offers the LG-850 Lasergrips for owners of Gen4 Glock pistols, including the G17, G22, G31, G34 and G35.

The Lasergrips are designed to lock to the back of the pistol grip using the trigger housing pin hole, and the company includes a disassembly tool for easy removal of the pin. Once installed, the unit is activated with a pressure pad on the rear of the grip, ensuring that the unit is activated once a solid firing grip is attained. The Lasergrips also feature a master on/off switch for those who want to deactivate the unit without removing it from the firearm.

The Lasergrips feature a single a 5-milliwatt red laser that projects a red dot along the right side of the slide. The dot measures approximately half an inch at 50 feet. The unit is powered by two CR2025 lithium batteries that provide the unit with more than four hours of continuous runtime. Two batteries are included with the Lasergrips. In addition, Crimson Trace provides owners with free battery replacement through its Free Batteries for Life program.

The Crimson Trace Lasergrip also gives users the flexibility of adding the company's Lightguard to the front rail of the firearm, giving the gun both light and laser capabilities. The Lasergrips also add more substance to the grip of a firearm, so shooters with bigger hands can benefit from the addition of the grips.

The suggested retail price for the LG-850 Lasergrips for Glock Gen4 pistols is $279.
