The pistol laser has been designed especially for use with the new Smith & Wesson® M&P Shield™ pistols, which were unveiled at the annual NRA show in St. Louis, Missouri last month.

The M&P Shield™ is Smith & Wesson's new slim, concealable, lightweight, striker-fired polymer pistol. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W, the new M&P Shield features a slim design combined with the proven and trusted features found in the M&P™ Pistol Series. From the pistol's easily concealed one-inch profile to its optimized 18-degree grip angle, the M&P Shield offers professional-grade features intended to aide users with simple operation and reliable performance.

The LaserLyte® UTA-SH laser for the Smith & Wesson® M&P Shield™ mounts easily and quickly on the M&P Shield trigger guard and snugs-up securely to the dust cover. It's simple to activate with the ambidextrous, ergonomic switch. The LaserLyte® UTA-SH laser is easily programmable to either constant on or pulse mode. Another great function is the "auto-off" feature that displays a unique flash after 5-minutes of operation and automatically turns the unit off after 6-minutes. In actual usage* the battery life lasts 10-hours in constant on and 20-hours in pulse mode (*actual usage is: 1 min. on and 1 min. off). Made of 30% glass filled nylon and steel mounting hardware. The MSRP is $99.95

LaserLyte® UTA-SH Laser Features Include:

* Ambidextrous* Ergonomic* Programmable with constant on or pulse mode* Automatic off feature 

Mario Pasantes, Senior Vice President of Marketing and International Sales for Smith & Wesson said, "We designed the M&P Shield to incorporate the exceptional features of all our M&P products in a lightweight firearm that is highly functional yet comfortable to carry and shoot. Early in the process, we teamed up with accessory providers that had the foresight and ability to develop superior accessories for the new M&P Shield. The result is an exciting new offering, including accessories that are available immediately, all of which can be combined to suit each user's particular situation. LaserLyte was an immediate part of delivering this value proposition to the market."
