Providing consumers with upgraded accessory options for their new pistol models, Crimson Trace launched its new Laserguard LG-362, designed specifically to work with the new Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 pistols now being sold.

Two new models are being offered in the new Laserguard LG-362 lineup, one with a red laser diode and one with a green laser diode. Both options are offered with the company's trademarked Instinctive Activation system, which uses an activation pad located on the front strap of the pistol just underneath the trigger guard. When users obtain a solid firing grip on their pistol, the laser will activate under grip pressure, providing a dependable, intuitive aiming assist once users draw their gun.

The Laserguard is built with a black polymer housing that attaches to the trigger guard and frame rail of the handgun, along with the overmolded rubber activation button located on the grip. The laser comes factory-sighted at 50 feet, but windage and elevation adjustments are available for users to set their own zero.

Powered by a 1/3N lithium battery, the unit produces a red or green laser dot that measures 0.5 inch at 50 yards. The red laser features a battery life of more than four hours, while the green laser provides users with a battery life of more than two hours.

An added feature of the Crimson Trace Laserguard is the inclusion of a master on/off switch, which allows users to manually switch the laser off, thereby avoiding the instant-on activation that appears when a firing grip is obtained. 

The suggested retail price on the red Crimson Trace Laserguard LG-362 is $229, while the green Laserguard model retails at a suggested price of $309.
