Crimson Trace Lightguard

I saw in this month's issue of G&A that CT has a trigger guard-mounted light, much like the smaller laser units. I peak interest in this, since my rail-less carry 1911 could greatly benefit from something like this . Does anyone have any experience with them?

Re: Crimson Trace Lightguard

I have one on my M&P and one on my Glock 17. They are great for concealed carry due to their thinness, but not as bright as some other options out there. I prefer them to Surefire X300s for CC due to that thinness. They are bright enough for my uses. The activation button is right under our middle finger so they require no fumbling around for a rocker switch or the purchase of a $65 DG switch. Only issue is that you're going to have to go somewhere with a large battery selection to find a replacement, they don't use 123s or anything you would find at the corner store.
