Wilsonville, OR –-( When Crimson Trace learned that American firearms manufacturer Honor Defense* was releasing a new semi-auto pistol, the company’s next step was to create a laser sight to equip that new firearm.

The result is the Crimson Trace Laserguard LG-498 laser sight, engineered for the Honor Defense subcompact Honor Guard 9mm pistol.

“The Honor Guard 9mm pistol line already incorporates more features than any competitor’s models, and consumers expect similar top-quality accessories like Crimson Trace’s Laserguard to be installed,” said Gary Ramey, President of Honor Defense.

“This year, Honor Defense is excited to launch Crimson Trace equipped pistols as well as offer those laser sights as an accessory. Honor Defense stands for better quality and Made in the USA, and we are excited about our partnership with Crimson Trace.” Details on Honor Defense firearms can be found at
