Thursday, January 18th, 2018

(Wilsonville, OR)— Crimson Trace®, recognized as America’s top brand of laser sights in a recent Southwick Associates shooting sports industry survey, today announced its newest Laserguard® laser sight—the LG-457 with red laser diode—for a precision fit onto the Smith & Wesson® series of SD™ and SD VE™ pistols.

This newest Crimson Trace Laserguard laser sight with a red laser diode for the Smith & Wesson SD and SD VE pistols utilize Crimson Trace’s patented Instinctive Activation™ firearm laser technology. Award-winning Instinctive Activation technology ensures that the laser sight activates when the firearm is held with a normal firing grip and when the user is ready to fire. That system is one of many reasons why Crimson Trace is a leader in the firearms laser sight market. The new Laserguard LG-457 laser sight can be easily adjusted for windage and elevation, is easy to install and maintain, and is covered under the Crimson Trace innovative Free Batteries for Life Program. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of the Laserguard LG-457 is $229.

Crimson Trace Laserguard laser sights incorporate either a red or green laser diode within a sturdy and compact housing and they are simple to install onto the pistol’s trigger guard. The necessary installation screws, plus battery for operation, are included in the product packaging. Some other laser sight manufacturers require the additional purchase of tools and batteries for installation and operation.

Crimson Trace leads the laser sight accessory category by offering more than 300 products through 2,500+ dealers across America.

TRIAD C1 Aiming Laser (Green Visible / IR Pointer / IR Laser Illuminator) Eye-Safe Version


As a follow-up to the recent Triad™ Mil / LE multi-beam weapon laser, we are proud to announce that an upgraded “Class 1” civilian version is now available, which incorporates a high-power eye-safe infrared laser illuminator. Also, Mil Standard-810G and ESD compliant, the Triad™ C1 is offered at an even more affordable end-user price point! Yet another stunning breakthrough in the tactical laser market, the Triad™ C1 combines both a covert eye-safe IR aiming laser and collimate-able infrared illuminator for tactical night vision operations and the very latest advanced generation Green aiming laser for dim light or daytime targeting applications. Sighting the laser is as easy as sighting in the green visible laser, which automatically aligns the IR Pointer and Illuminator.

Specifically designed for the civilian / Law Enforcement market, the aiming lasers are controlled with a single set of low-profile windage and elevation dials that greatly simplify bore-sighting and adjustment manipulations. Both aiming lasers and laser illuminator can be operated individually or simultaneously (IR Pointer/IR Illuminator) in various combinations. Activation is controlled with the included remote cable pressure pad switch or the built–in single tap “FIRE” button located on top of the housing body for easy access.

Despite all its many advanced features, the Triad™ C1 is remarkably compact and maintains a low profile when weapon mounted. The ruggedized design of the Triad™ C1 ensures continued operation when submerged or when subjected to repeated heavy recoil. The system also includes an integral Picatinny rail for additional accessories as well as an adjustable quick detach throw lever mount with lock to prevent accidental detachment in the field. Advanced features include hydraulic windage / elevations controls which require no tools in the field. The IR Illuminator beam collumation is controlled from an easy to reach knob on the back of the system. The lens cap is held in place with a rare earth magnet, while the laser is kinetic. Power is supplied by a standard CR123 battery.

NOW AVAILABLE for a SPECIAL SHOT SHOW pricing through January 31st for $695. Normal retail price is $995.

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce that the MAWL-DA has been selected by the French National Gendarmerie’s elite police tactical unit, the GIGN, as their official individual NIR/VIS weapon laser and illuminator. The GIGN is currently upgrading legacy systems, and has begun to integrate new technologies with the unit’s available weapons platforms.


After evaluating various laser aiming and illumination systems through rigorous testing, and in real-world scenarios, the MAWL-DA was proven to be the superior solution, and was selected for formal procurement and deployment within the unit. In addition to the MAWL-DA’s selection by the GIGN, other units in France, and other European SOF units have adopted it for use in their respective operations.

The GIGN is the elite Police Tactical Unit of the French National Gendarmerie. Its missions include counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, surveillance of national threats, protection of government officials, and targeting organized crime. It is renowned for its selection and implementation of innovative technology and tactics, using a comprehensive suite of both small arms solutions, and weapon enabling systems. The unit’s selection of the MAWL-DA as a tool for mission success is notable in light of the GIGN’s pedigree, and reputation as a premiere SOF unit. B.E. Meyers & Co. looks forward to the MAWL-DA’s service with the GIGN as NIR/VIS pointing and illumination system which will assist in the unit’s response to both domestic and international threats.

The MAWL-DA (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser – Direct Action) is a high-power infrared and visible green aiming and illumination laser for individual carbines. Offering improved ergonomics, interface, and performance, the MAWL-DA has been designed from the ground up around the needs of the modern night fighter.

Engineered to address the shortcomings of common laser devices in use with both military and law enforcement, the MAWL® incorporates cutting edge VCSEL technology which eliminates the current problem of inconsistent and granular, speckled illumination. This unparalleled beam quality is leveraged with multiple modes of divergence and power, based on the ideal settings for any operational environment: Close Range, Mid Range, or Long Range.
