Crimson Trace and Ruger teamed up to release a pair of LC9s Pro pistols equipped with the Crimson XChange lights and lasers. The new pistols, distributed through Talo, come with either a light or a laser, and the system is designed to let a shooter easily swap one for the other.

According to Crimson Trace, swapping out the laser is quick and will not cause it to lose zero when re-installed.

While I’m not entirely clear on when I would want to rapidly swap between the two, I have to say that the units appear to be well designed and maintain the overall look and curves of the LC9s pistols.

    I like the first design the best. Has a blocky cyberpunk look. Switch triggers. Increase the magazine capacity.

    Would be great to have a green laser/light combo in the same width as my EDC LC9s pro. I have one now on my XDS and love it. Not aware of one for the LC9s platform.
