OPTICSPLANET WELCOMES NEW CRIMSON TRACE WEAPON-MOUNTED FLASHLIGHT TO ITS STORES

Northbrook, Illinois - November 2, 2011 - OpticsPlanet, Inc. the world's largest specialized internet retailer of hunting, sport shooting, tactical, military and law enforcement equipment, announced this week that it is now accepting orders for the new Crimson Trace weapon-mounted flashlight, Lightguard.

Building on the storied success of their Lasergrip and Laserguard sighting systems, Crimson Trace has once again redefined low-light weapon solutions with the launch of Lightguard, a rugged weapon-mounted flashlight. Lightguard features a 100-lumen white light and utilizes the company's patented instinctive activation system, making operation of the device as simple as holding the weapon in a natural firing position. This provides users with a significant advantage in defensive situations, as one arm is allowed to remain free. And with its low mass and slim profile, Lightguard does not noticeably affect the weight, balance or holstering of the weapon.

CRIMSON TRACE initially released the Lightguard for GLOCK, Springfield XD/XD (m) and Smith & Wesson M&P, with plans to develop models for other firearm makes in the future. Lightguards are fully compatible with select CRIMSON TRACE Lasergrips, and when equipped together, these tools can be activated both independently and in conjunction with one another.

OpticsPlanet is proud to carry all available Lightguard models, as well as the full line of CRIMSON TRACE Lasergrips and Laserguards on Opticsplanet.com.
