Honor Defense Adds Crimson Trace LG-498 Option

Honor Defense Logo

Honor Defense now offers models that are equipped with a Crimson Trace Laserguard. In addition, consumers can also purchase the laser as an accessory directly from Crimson Trace or on the Honor Defense website. The Laserguard LG-498 is engineered specifically for the Honor Guard subcompact 9mm pistols.

“The Honor Guard 9mm has more features than other single stack 9mm pistols. We also have the same top quality lasers and holsters as other top brands. We are pleased that consumers can now add a high-quality accessory like the Crimson Trace LG-498” said Gary Ramey, President of Honor Defense. “We're very excited to launch Crimson Trace equipped models and also offer them as an accessory to our All-American made handguns.”

For more than twenty years, Crimson Trace has equipped America's gun owners, law enforcement officers and military units around the globe with the largest selection of laser sights and tactical lights.

Launched this year, the new Honor Defense line of pistols feature:

– Striker-fired design that can handle 9MM +P loads
– Snag-free sights
– Trigger with a wide face with a crisp 7lb pull
– Short reset for quicker second shot and better control
– Ambidextrous slide catch and magazine release
– Available with or without an ambidextrous manual safety lever
– Modular system with stainless steel chassis
– Custom texture design to provide better grip in all situations
– Replaceable back straps to allow custom grip.


What Crimson Trace says about their laser site.

The LG-498 is a seamlessly integrated laser sight for Honor Defense's Honor Guard concealed carry pistol. This Laserguard is designed to match the unique design of the pistol, and features our patented Instinctive Activation – meaning the laser is activated when the gun is held in a natural firing grip. Quickly installed with no gunsmithing required, the LG-498 is also fully adjustable for windage and elevation.
