Crimson Trace LG-492 LaserGuard for Sig P238

Here’s a look at the new LG-492 LaserGuard from our friends at Crimson Trace. The LG-492 is for the Sig Sauer P238 handgun. Installation is a breeze and only takes a couple minutes. As with all Crimson Trace lasers, this unit features an instinctive laser activation button (located at the front of the grip, below the trigger guard) that makes turning the laser on/off as easy as placing a normal grip on your handgun. We prefer the Crimson Trace system over various other manufacturers because of this intuitive feature. Many other models must be activated by pressing a button to turn it on then pressing it again to turn it off . I am very fond of Crimson Trace products and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who owns a firearm for self-defense!

One note about the LG-492 – it can NOT be installed over the top of Hogue rubber finger grips, so if you have these after market grips installed on your P238, you will have to revert to the panel style grip.

Specifications from Manufacturer:


The Sig Sauer fans wanted a compact, lightweight pistol that performed like a full size. This platform is right up Crimson Trace’s ally as the Laserguard platform offers everything in a compact package. The LG-492 attaches to the trigger guard of the P238 by two factory supplied screws. The LG-492 is fully adjustable for windage and elevation and comes sighted in at 50 feet from the factory. See our holsters section for a custom holster to securely fit your laser equipped P238.
