The following is a press release from Crimson Trace

The trend continues that an increasing number of Americans are buying firearms to protect themselves—and their families.

One recent National Shooting Sports Foundation survey of firearms retailers indicates nearly 25 percent of gun owners are first-time buyers—that is, they have purchased their first firearm within the last five years. A large number of those gun buyers have purchased a revolver—alias wheel gun. There are many reasons to rely on revolvers—and there are many Crimson Trace laser sights to equip those wheel guns.

While revolver owners often buy wheel guns because they are generally easier to operate, that is the same reason many Crimson Trace customers buy a laser sight manufactured by the Wilsonville, Oregon manufacturer. Crimson Trace products frequently feature the company’s patented Instinctive Activation. Holding the revolver as designed, and grasping the grip naturally, will put a finger atop the activation tab and engage the laser sight. The bright green or red laser dot can be seen downrange and on the intended target. If no laser is desired, simply turn off the power switch.

Among the many Crimson Trace laser sight options for wheel guns are products such as the recently released Lasergrips LG-350G (green) designed to be a precise replacement grip on Smith & Wesson’s popular J-frame round butt revolver. Crimson Trace offers four distinct Lasergrips with red lasers to also fit this popular conceal carry revolver, including: the LG-105, LG-305, LG-350 and LG-405 models. It’s easy to find a model that fits the hands of the owner at or a local dealer.

There are also Crimson Trace Lasergrips—LG-415 (red) and LG-415G (green)—that replace the grips on Ruger’s compact LCR and LCRX wheel guns. Great news is that a growing number of small revolvers can be purchased with a Crimson Trace laser sight pre-installed at the factory.

Another revolver equipping option are Crimson Trace Lasergrips for Taurus’ small frame revolvers. The Lasergrips LG-185 and LG-385 will easily fit onto nearly a dozen models of Taurus revolvers. Crimson Trace also makes Lasergrips for Charter Arms’ revolver—the LG-325 with red a laser.

Like all Crimson Trace products, the mentioned revolver Lasergrips are rigorously tested by the company. That testing can include sessions of installation and removal, plus prolonged live fire by a cadre of testers.

Crimson Trace is widely recognized as the nation’s leading brand of laser sight systems and tactical lights for firearms. All Crimson Trace laser sight products can be easily installed without requiring modification of the firearm. Crimson Trace also manufactures and offers consumers more green laser sights than all other manufacturers—combined.
