To answer those questions, and to guide with product selection, the Wilsonville, Oregon based company offers these five easy-to-follow steps for selecting the perfect laser sight for any firearm:

1) What firearm will be fitted with the sight? Crimson Trace’s website ( lists the many leading firearm manufacturers that the company makes specific fitted laser sights for, ranging from Beretta to Walther, plus 1911s, MSR/AR rifles and any firearm with an accessory rail. Additional details on the website list specific firearm models.

2) What products will match the gun’s uses?

These add up to nearly 200 products to fit thousands of firearms. Customers can take several routes to customization of, or equipping, their firearm with laser sights and powerful LED white lights.

3) Green or Red laser? Both colors offer advantages. Red laser sights are normally more affordable and use less battery power. Green laser sights are more visible in ambient lighting conditions. Crimson Trace offers a wide selection of red and green laser sights, and several models, such as the Laserguard LG-443 for Glocks, are available in red and green. Crimson Trace offers more green laser sights than all other competitors combined.

4) Where can I buy, or see, Crimson Trace products? In addition to viewing the product on the company’s website, there are more than 2,500 Crimson Trace dealers across America. The informative website also has a DEALER locator feature to help find nearby dealers.

Those holsters can be ordered on the company’s website or purchased direct from manufacturers including: BLACKHAWK!, Blade-Tech, CrossBreed, DeSantis, Galco, Mitch Rosen, Tactical Tailor, and others. Retail prices range up to $75. Crimson Trace works with those holster manufacturers during product design, and when a new laser sight is offered for sale—there’s a holster for that!
