Crimson Trace’s next step in foregrip technology comes is the new Rapid Illumination Grip (RIG).


The ambidextrous RIG is compatible with M-LOK or Picatinny rails and there’s also an optional ambidextrous remote switch. The primary switch sits at the resting point of the index finger for easy activation. Constructed from a mixture of polymer and aircraft grade aluminum, the company says that the RIG underwent “rigorous simulated and live-fire testing to withstand the most extreme conditions.”

Attaching the RIG can be done with M-LOK or Picatinny rails.


Two quick-detach rechargeable batteries are also included with the Crimson Trace RIG. They can be exchanged without removing the unit from the firearm. In addition, the lumen output can be manually adjusted with left- and right-side variable brightness buttons.

The angled foregrip of the RIG can enhance the maneuverability of rail-equipped firearms, especially for the AR pistol platform, but it is equally effective on full-size rifles, carbines and even AK-style firearms.
