Colt Defense, LLC, in partnership with Lasermax, Inc., combined a laser, navigation light and fore grip into a single unit that attaches by way of a quick-release locking lever to any Ml913 Picatinny rail system.

A rear switch can be rotated to change between functions of the Colt Grip Laser.

The CGL weighs 6.8 ozs. with batteries, and battery life is 60 hours for a pulsing beam and 30 hours for a constant beam.

Contact: Lasermax (Dept. AR) 3495 Winton Place, Building B, Rochester, NY 14623; (800) 527-3703; and, depending on the setting, depressing the switch on the front of the grip activates either the 635-nano­meter red laser or the low-level light. The laser can be on either a constant or pulse setting, and the low-level light comes in red, white or blue. The front switch can be lightly depressed for momentary activation or clicked-in for sustained use. Two AA batteries are held in the grip by a flathead cover screw, which has a slot designed specifically to fit the rim of a standard .223 Rem.J5.56×45 mm NATO cartridge.
