Crimson Trace Laserguard for Glock 43

CrimsonTrace LaserGuard

Crimson Trace announced a pair of new laser aiming devices for the Glock 43 9mm pistol. The two new units are both Laserguard units of the same physical size. One version will use a red aiming laser. This model, the LG-443, will carry a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $229.

The second Laserguard unit will use a green aiming laser. This version of the unit will have a suggested retail price of $299.

Green lasers appear brighter to the human eye, and they are often easier to see in daylight or other bright light conditions. Green lasers tend to be more expensive to produce, and can use battery power more quickly than a red laser.

    Nice to see the price premium for green starting to go away. Would have never seen just a $60 difference 3 years ago.

    Why not just get a laserspring guide and save the underbarrel mount for a light? I dunno just my opinion

      There is not under barrel mount on the Glock 43, this mounts to the trigger guard. If you wanted an under barrel light there are not many (any?) options available yet for the Glock 43. For a concealed carry gun like the 43 I am not a fan of those guide rod lasers anyway. Due to the fact that they are totally internal they do not have a pressure pad, instead relying on a switch built in to a specially modified take down lever. This means that if you draw it you have to take the extra step of remembering to turn the laser on, not great in a self defence situation. The Crimson Trace mounted to the trigger guard is much more idiot proof simply turning on when you grip the pistol which is much better in a high pressure situation.
