Okay, not really wooden lasers, but certainly “real” wood Lasergrips from Crimson Trace. Normally we’re familiar with Crimson Trace’s Lasergrips living in neatly molded plastic of some kind, but their new Master Series is actually made of exotic laminates and stabilized wood.
The Master Series is available in Rosewood and G10 and will fit full-sized 1911s (Government and Commander), compact models and, for the first time ever, the Bobtail models. The Master Series is precision machined, and the test sample fit our Officer’s ACP-sized gun perfectly. The photo shows a set of wood grips (from Wicked Grips) for comparison. You can see the Crimson Trace grips do reflect a real wood look — because they are! The stabilization process hardens the wood, making it perfect for machining for a seamless fit, offering great wear resistance, and I’d think it would be pretty much impervious to water or most gun cleaning solvents.
The “guts” of the laser system remain classic Crimson Trace, and the over-molded activation button assures normal activation just like their other Lasergrip systems. We’ve long been proponents of laser aiming systems on defensive handguns, especially backup guns. The new Master Series simply makes the concept more attractive — perfect for a custom gun or simply if you want to be nice to yourself! For more info: www.americanhandgunner.com/crimson-trace
