The Crimson Trace Rail Master – From SHOT Show to Your Door!

Mar 28, 2012 • News4 Comments

Easily one of our favorite displays at this year’s SHOT Show was from Crimson Trace.  There are a few reasons for this.  First, they had shooting superstar Iain Harrison showing off their sweet weapon lights and laser sights.  You could see in the video (check out both the video and our post in our Crimson Trace SHOT Show Post) that Steve really had a great time reminiscing with Iain about a hunt and some time they’d spent shooting together.  But the excitement wasn’t just for Mr. Harrison, because Crimson Trace didn’t hold back when it came to amazing new products.  Of the gear that was truly new (rather than updated models of existing products) the best had to be the Rail Master.

The Crimson Trace Rail Master is a phenomenal piece of technology.  And this is no secret because as soon as we got them in stock they started selling really well.  I think Crimson Trace is going to have to make a few extra batches because these sweet sights are really popular!  Why is that?  The Rail Master is a universal laser sight, so it’ll fit on a ton of different firearms, from some smaller compact handguns to full size rifles while still maintaining a high level of performance.  It only needs 1 1/8 inches of Picatinny or Weaver style rail space.  That’s an extremely small amount of room for such a tough and powerful laser.  As you can see from the pictures, this Crimson Trace Laser Sight is truly compact, so you also shouldn’t have as much trouble finding a holster that’ll accommodate the new shape.

Another thing I’m really impressed by is the ease of use on the Rail Master.  Depending on the firearm you’re using you may want to activate the Rail Master Laser a little differently.  It comes with four inserts that will allow it to be closer or further from your finger on a handgun.  If you have big hands it will be easier and more natural to activate a little further down the rail.  If you’re using the laser sight for self defense or on duty you’ll really appreciate this.  Just like you practice with your holster until you have perfect muscle memory you should practice activating your Rail Master until it’s second nature.  Adjust the fit until it feels perfect, then practice, practice, practice.

The Rail Master won't weigh down your Rifle!

With all that practice and the extensive use you’re sure to get from your new Rail Master you’ll be happy to know the battery life is about 4 hours, and it can use either a single 1/3N 3V Lithium or two 357 Silver Oxide Batteries, which are pretty easy to find.

If you need a great compact red laser that’ll fit on almost any gun with a Picatinny or Weaver rail, the Crimson Trace Rail Master is the perfect choice.  And with the amazing price on this new sight you’re sure to get tons of value.  Get yours today and be one of the first with this new laser sight!

    I WOULD PURCHASE THIS IF IT ALSO HAD A RAIL SYSTEM SO i COULD ADD OTHER LIGHTS, OR A LASER TARGETING LIGHT.

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

  3. Brian says:

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

  4. Brian says:

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
