Crimson Trace Celebrates 25 Year Anniversary

Crimson Trace began business in the backroomof a machine shop in 1994. It was a typical rainy Oregon day when founder LewDanielson filled out and submitted the paperwork to launch the world’s premierlaser sight manufacturer. In the days that followed, customers sent their GLOCKpistols in for machining, wiring and installation of an embedded laser diode. Those laser sights continue to be serviced today—a strong commitmentto the many loyal customers. Great customer service has been a cornerstone ofbusiness for Crimson Trace across the decades and years, and in 2019 thoseyears in business equals 25—a quarter century.

The 25 years in business for Crimson Trace haveseen many milestones, such as the release of the Lasergrips laser sights forthe popular 1911 pistols, and the LiNQ wireless remote activation technologyfor laser sights and lights for MSR rifles. Crimson Trace also began the FreeBatteries for Life program and introduced firearms owners to the patentedInstinctive Activation laser sight engagement system.
