Crimson Trace, which is a subsidiary of American Outdoor Brands Corporation, has taken a huge leap with their company. Not only have they unveiled new branding with a more modern and attractively-styled logo, but they also have LOTS of new products for all of us. This includes 5 new electronic sights spanning platforms from rifles to shotguns to handguns. They also have 11 new riflescopes coming our way that are spread across three tiers of quality and design.
