Crimson Trace Laserguard for Ruger Pistols

(Wilsonville, OR)— Crimson Trace®, recognized as America’s top brand of laser sights in a Southwick Associates industry survey, today announced that it has released a new Laserguard® laser sight—the LG-416G—with green laser diode. The new laser sight is designed for a precision fit onto the Ruger® LC9®, LC9S® and LC380® compact semi-auto pistols.

The LG-416G Laserguard laser sight for Ruger pistols can be easily adjusted for windage and elevation. Each side of the easy-to-install laser sight also has unique curves to match segments of the Ruger pistol frame. A distinct CTC logo is prominent on each side of the laser sight’s front section. This laser sight is easy to maintain (an owner’s manual is included in the packaging and is also available on the company’s website), and the laser sight is covered under the Crimson Trace innovative Free Batteries for Life program.

Like all Crimson Trace Laserguard laser sights, the new products announced today feature the company’s award-winning and patented Instinctive ActivationTM firearm laser technology, designed to activate the laser sight when the firearm is held with a normal firing grip and when the user is ready to fire.  Instinctive Activation, a common consumer demand, is one of the many reasons that Crimson Trace is a leader in the firearms laser sight market. The necessary installation screws, plus battery for operation, are included in the product packaging.

Mauser Introduces New M18

The ‘People’s Rifle’ Brings Mauser Back to the Masses

San Antonio, Texas – The dream of owning a Mauser is now more accessible than ever, thanks to the launch of the iconic German gunmaker’s newest rifle: the M18. Like its well-known stable mates, the M18 combines heritage, experience and state-of-the-art technology, and has been designed with the manufacturer’s core principles at heart to inspire confidence and adventure.

Thanks to its ultra-rugged synthetic stock, the M18 will withstand daily use in even the harshest hunting environments.  A three-position safety allows you to safely carry a round in the chamber without fear of the bolt being nudged out of battery. The steel receiver provides core strength and reliability to protect the action, and a cold-hammer-forged barrel gives further peace of mind that the rifle will perform consistently, round after round.

For optimum grip, the stock features two areas of soft-inlay.  The five-round magazine enables fast, fuss-free follow-up shots, and an adjustable trigger allows you to set your own preferred pull weight. Clean lines and high-quality materials result in a premium appearance, so that overall, the M18 has the look and feel of a rifle twice its price.

“Being able to produce a rifle this good at such an affordable price means more sportsmen than ever before can realize their dream of owning a Mauser,” said Christian Socher, CEO of Blaser USA, Mauser’s North American distributor. “The value of the M18 lies not only in its price but also in its ultimate reliability, durability, and accuracy. This is a rifle for the everyday hunter, incorporating features they rely on, and it will get the job done time after time. That’s why we’re calling it ‘Volkswaffe’: ‘the people’s rifle’.”

Priced from $699, the M18 is currently available in .243 Win., .308 Win., .270 Win., .30-06, 7mm Rem. Mag., and .300 Win. Mag. with 6.5 Creedmoor to follow.
