Crimson Trace is expanding their LiNQ system to include the AK-47 family of guns as well as adding new green light laser grips across the board. The LiNQ pointer system adds a weaponlight and green light laser sight and remote-controller grip

The family of new Crimson Trace products.

The LiNQ system is a flashlight and laser combination that mounts to the end of your long gun paired a pistol grip that acts as the controller. The combo connects to the pistol grip wirelessly.

Also for 2017 are new ambidextrous Master Series grips with green light laser sights. These are G10 grips for 1911 with laser sights.

The new green light Master Series.

Available in G10 and Rosewood.


  • AK grip: rubber overmolded
  • AK light: 300 lumen
  • 1911 grip: machined G10 and engraved Rosewood
  • Battery life: 2 hours minimum
  • Warranty: 3-year


These light and laser systems use Crimson Trace’s Instinctive Activation system which has proven to be easy to use in all situations. The power system is built into the grip and turn on when you pick up the grip.

Crimson Trace has been busy expanding their green light laser sight options, particularly for concealed-carry pistols. One model we looked at in particular was for the Smith & Wesson Shield and it performed excellently.

Pricing and Availability

The Master series grips are slated for early 2017, around February. The AK LiNQ system will be available a little later, around April. The Master Series grips have a $479 MSRP while the AK LiNQ runs $649. In-store pricing will be lower.
