No strangers to innovation in the firearms accessory market, the forward thinkers at Crimson Trace have announced something we really weren't expecting...and can't wait to try!
Enter the Crimson Trace RIG - which stands for "Rapid Illumination Grip." The RIG is a 500-Lumen weapon light that is deployed from an angled foregrip, which is compatible with both M-LOK or Picatinny interfaces, and includes an optional, ambidextrous remote switch.
Official press release from Crimson Trace below:
Crimson Trace® is excited to announce the next step in foregrip technology in the new Rapid Illumination Grip (RIG™).
By combining a 500-peak-lumen weapon light with an angled foregrip, Crimson Trace® has efficiently streamlined the
highest-demand accessories for rifles, carbines, and pistols into one multi-purpose device.
Completely ambidextrous, the RIG™ is compatible with M-LOK or Picatinny rails and includes an optional,
ambidextrous remote switch. The primary switch naturally sits at the resting point of end-user’s index finger for
seamless and effortless activation. Constructed from a mixture of polymer and aircraft grade aluminum, the RIG™
undergoes rigorous simulated and live-fire testing to withstand the most extreme conditions.
Two included quick-detach, rechargeable batteries can be exchanged without removing the unit from the firearm. At
1-hour peak-lumen runtime per battery, the RIG™ stays in the fight in the moments that matter most. The lumen
output can be manually adjusted with left- and right-side variable brightness buttons.
The angled foregrip of the RIG™ can greatly enhance the maneuverability of rail-equipped firearms, especially the
incredibly popular AR pistol platform, but it is equally effective on full-size rifles, carbines, and even AK-style firearms.
Backed with the Crimson Trace® Crimson Protect Lifetime Warranty, the RIG™ provides a tactical advantage for all
end users in any situation, because at Crimson Trace®, Failure is Not an Option.
As an industry leader in laser sighting systems, optics, and tactical lights, Crimson Trace® is dedicated to providing premium products for shooting
enthusiasts from hunters to competition shooters and self-defense gun owners. To discover more about Crimson Trace®, a member of the
