Crimson Trace is continually adding in new models of pistols that are covered by their Laserguard series of red or green lasers. They now have expanded that portfolio to include multiple different yet closely related concealed carry pistols by Ruger. This newest offering will cover the Ruger EC9s, LC9s, LC9 and LC380.

Between the 2 different colored lasers you can have, the green Laserguard ( LG416G) retails for $309 while the red Laserguard ( LG-416) punches in at $229.

A simple overview of the specifications for this diminutive laser that attaches to the trigger guard can be read below.
  • Construction: Polymer Housing w/ Rubber Overmold Activation Pad
  • Battery: One 1/3N Lithium
  • Battery Life: 4 Hours (Red) / 2 Hours (Green)
  • Adjustment: Windage & Elevation User Adjustable
  • Activation: Pressure Activated, Front Strap Button
  • Warranty: 3 Year Full Warranty
  • ½” Dot Size @ 50 Feet
  • Free Batteries during ownership under the Free Batteries for Life program
  • Fits Ruger EC9s, LC9, LC9s & LC380

The technical specs are nearly identical between the red and green color options except for battery life, and one unique additional feature. A Master On/Off Switch is included for completely powering down the green laser. The red laser does not have this feature.

Crimson Trace provided a short overview of this new Laserguard model for those who may be unacquainted with the product.

This model features Crimson Trace’s famed Instinctive Activation™ which allows the unit to be activated when the pistol is held in a normal firing grip… quickly user-installed in moments with no modifications to the firearm and is fully adjustable for windage and elevation. This product is eligible for our Free Batteries For Life program.

At the moment, these lasers are sold out on Crimson Trace’s website, but being as new as they are they should become available soon for the Ruger EC9s and all other compatible Ruger models.

With all of the lasers currently out on the market, who is running a Crimson Trace Laserguard?… Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

    Red Crimson Trace on my lc380 will seamlessly transfer over to the lc9s with HiViz sights that'll be delivered to my dealer next week. I'm sold on the Crimson Trace pressure activated laser and also have one on my Series 70 Gold Cup. They are not only excellent for low light but also help identify any trigger release faults with a particular pistol, or just a case of the yips. Can be used with dry fire practice. I would like to have the on/off switch feature but am not going to spend $300 for the newer model. They don't allow a laser for concealed carry qualification (dumb rule) so had to take the battery out for that.

    If I ever get the trigger on my lc9s fixed I would be interested in one of these. The trigger shoe is the problem. It's the most uncomfortable trigger I have ever used. One of these days I am gonna try to bend the trigger shoe to to lesson the hook on it.
