Here is a copy of the press release which will be public at SHOT, you guys get the first look. I can't tell you how hard it has been to bite my tongue! :wink:







FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 11, 2007



Crimson Trace Announces New Lasergrips® for the Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol



Beaverton, OR —January 11, 2007: Crimson Trace will be debuting a revolutionary new Lasergrips model for several Smith & Wesson M&P pistols at this year’s SHOT Show in Orlando. The innovative LG-660 should be on dealer shelves in mid-2007. The LG-660 fits the M&P .40, 9mm, and .357 Sig calibers of pistols. Suggested retail price is $329.00.



The LG-660 is truly remarkable in its unique design. It replaces the stock M&P back strap grip insert and snaps into place in just a few seconds using existing factory parts. It is instinctively activated by a pressure switch built into the backstrap of the polymer Lasergrip. Simply grasping the firearm in a normal shooting grip activates the laser. All electrical components fit into the Lasergrip, which is the same size and shape of the original M&P back strap. This fully integrated laser sighting system is another Crimson Trace first in the marketplace.



There are two #2032 batteries located in the palm swell on the sides of the Lasergrips, providing over 4 hours of a constant-on beam time. The master switch is also located on the backstrap and uses a new touch sensor switch versus a mechanical switch as found on other Lasergrips. This allows the user to turn the unit on or off even while using gloves. Users simply press on hold the recessed pressure switch to turn the power on or off. The texture of the unit is almost identical to the stock S&W palm swell. Rubber overmolding on the backstrap covers the master on/off switch and the activation button, providing improved grip while shooting.



Another new feature of the LG-660 is that it uses a smaller 3.3mm diameter laser diode versus the standard 5.6 diameter diode that is found in all other brands of laser sighting devices. This results in a lower profile diode housing that emits the same brightness as one almost twice its size. As with all other Lasergrips, the LG-660 has both windage and elevation adjustments for shooters to make adjustments on their own. All Lasergrips come with an accessory pack that contains batteries, hex wrenches for laser adjustments, a cleaning cloth and several cleaning swabs. A three-year warranty is standard.



Lasergrips are made in the United States of America. Crimson Trace is the only manufacturer of grip-integrated laser sighting systems. Police, all branches of the U.S. Military, and responsible citizens worldwide use patented Lasergrips. Crimson Trace Lasergrips are recommended as an essential accessory by some of the world’s top firearm trainers.

WOW. I'm looking forward to seeing it at SHOT.



Maybe you can comment on this, CTC was reportedly working with Surefire for some type of Laser Device for the X200. Was the X200L the result of this partnership (if it did exist)?

I wonder what width grip the laser grip is? I use the slim grip, but I would imagine that they would need to duplicate the mid size grip to fit all the componetry.

It is based off the medium size backstrap but will have slight palmswells on the side which actually make it more comfortable. At least in my opinion, and I run the medium backstrap on my M&P9.

I want one. That looks very cool.




I'm a south paw and would buy this right away if CTC has a version with the laser on the other side of the grip. Looks like the laser could interfere with my left thumb using side stop.



I might need to test before I buy.

Jeff,



The grips look great, but I have two quick questions.



1. Is there, or will there be, an option for a kill switch like seen on the 1911/M9 models?



2. Will the body of the lasers with stand a texture treatment similar to the work done by Dan Burwell and Bowie Tactical?





Thanks



Chris

Chris I am not Jeff but I will take question #2:



I will get a good look at this next week at SHOT and let you know if I think I can do somehting with the texture. I know Mr. Bowie has done them on the Glock model, so if the ploymer is close to the same I am thinking it would be GTG.
