Crimson Trace, famous for their great laser sights, is now moving into the rail-mounted flashlights segment and let me tell you, they’ve done a wonderful job. The Crimson Trace Universal Rail Master Weapon Light that they’ve developed is something that shooters of all calibers will enjoy. Catering to all market segments and demographics, carrying citizens and armed professionals alike will appreciate the value of a polymer rail-mounted light on their favorite pistol, long gun or shotgun.
I want to talk about how to find the right weapon light for your firearm and things to consider when purchasing one. First things first – what will you be using this light for? If you are a home owner and keep a pistol in your night drawer next to the picture of your lovely wife, this light is perfect. With its ambidextrous, adjustable activation switch that only requires a tap of your finger, it’s ideal for identifying any unwanted house guests in the middle of the night. The 100 Lumens output of the Crimson Trace Universal Rail Master Light will be enough to disorient the burglar or assailant, giving you plenty of time to react.
Concealed carry requires some more self-analysis. Carrying a firearm with a weapon light attachment will create more bulk, may require you to purchase a new holster, possibly re-train to utilize a light at the draw (if this is your first gun light) and a myriad more points you should consider. Don’t forget to take your body size into account. Larger persons find it easier to conceal larger firearms without printing, while smaller individuals may have a problem with the bulkiness of certain firearms. The Universal Rail Maser Weapon Light, although small, still adds some bulk to the firearm. Carrying this in an IWB holster may be difficult. The choice is yours, but do consider these factors.
The great thing about the Rail Master Universal Tactical Light from Crimson Trace is the transferability. It truly is universal. As long as there’s a Weaver or Picatinny style rail, you can slap this bad boy on there. The compact rugged design, polymer construction, and adjustable ambidextrous activation make this perfect for professional shooters. Quickly transfer this tactical light from a pistol to a shotgun, and you have yourself a powerful, blinding 100 Lumens at your fingertips waiting to light up a room. The Crimson Trace Rail Master Universal Tactical Light is more than ideal for all home defense purposes, even if a shotgun is your weapon of choice.
Running on one (1) CR123 battery with a white LED bulb, you will greatly enjoy the features of this compact, yet very powerful light. The light comes in black and coyote tan finishes and can be found on our main store here.
