Crimson Trace’s new  Laserguard Pro LL-801 is a new product category for the company and incorporates an easy-to-notice red laser diode coupled with a powerful 150-Lumen LED white light. The advanced skills of Crimson Trace’ in-house engineering section resulted in the creation of the new Laserguard Pro—the industry’s most durable light and laser sight combination.

  • laser and light
  • laser and light strobe.
     

A master on/off switch permits quickly turning the Laserguard Pro operation features off when wishing to conserve the CR2 Lithium battery’s power.

This S&W Shield-focused product will fit both 9mm and .40 S&W caliber pistols. Holsters will be widely available from numerous manufacturers.
