Crimson Trace Upgrades Popular MSR Rifles

Crimson Trace offers numerous lighting upgrade options to owners of modern sporting rifles (MSRs) and most rail-equipped long guns. The easy-to-install laser sights and lights can be used on a wide assortment of firearms that are held for self- and home-defense purposes, and for hunting in numerous states. The options can be found in more than 2,800 dealers across America- or quickly ordered online.

Leading the way in long-gun upgrades are the new Crimson Trace Tactical Lights. These innovations include the CWL-102 white LED light, which delivers up to 500 lumens and can be activated with a tap-on/tap-off tail cap or via a remote on/off activation pad attached to the light with a linking cable. That activation pad can be placed in position on the firearm with Velcro straps or a stick-in-place strip. Another similar light model, the CWL-202 provides up to 900 lumens of output. These lights are impact resistant and water resistant up to a depth of 1 meter. Models are available to fit standard rails or the M-Lok/Keymod accessory slots.

Crimson Trace also offers the LiNQ wireless laser sight and light solution. This remotely operated green laser sight and bright light is designed to securely attach to any MSR that is equipped with a M1913 Picatinny or Weaver accessory rail. The compact module of the LiNQ laser/light system houses a green laser sight and powerful 300-Lumen LED white light. The replacement activation grip controls the module through a secure singular closed system. That module can be operated in four modes: light only, laser only, laser and light, and laser and strobe light. The grip and the module are pre-paired at Crimson Trace's factory when packaged for shipping, and free mounting tools and batteries are included.

Another popular MSR upgrade is the Crimson Trace MVF-515 laser sight. This Modular Vertical Foregrip has a bright 200-Lumen LED white light partnered with a red or green laser sight. The user simply mounts the MVF-515 laser sight on a lower rail (Picatinny or similar) on the rifle's forend, tightens the mounting screws, and then adjusts the unit for windage and elevation using the included tools. The sturdy grip is constructed from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and is popular with law enforcement units from coast to coast as well as military units around the globe.


An additional MSR laser sight and light upgrade option is the Crimson Trace Rail Master Pro laser sight and light system. These red or green laser sights are paired with a 100-Lumen LED white light and offer several operation modes, including: laser only, light only, laser and constant light, or laser and strobe light. These lightweight and compact laser sight and light products utilize M1913 Picatinny or Weaver style accessory rails and feature tap-on/tap-off activation.


Another upgrade option is a Crimson Trace Rail Master with a red laser (CMR-201), green laser (CMR-206), or a 100-Lumen LED white light (CMR-202). The Rail Master universal laser sighting system can be easily installed, has tap-on/tap-off activation, and will automatically power off after five minutes of inactivity. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Prices for the CMR-201 Rail Master begin at $159.
