Guns & Ammo Raves Over Viridian’s LCP Green Laser


Patrick Sweeney offers a full review of the Viridian Reactor 5 in the November issue of Guns & Ammo magazine. He covers the complete sighting system: premium green laser sight, ECR Instant-On activation, and custom-fit holster – a ready-to-go system.

“The Viridian line includes a holster for the R5 (and other models as well) and has the Viridian Enhanced Combat Readiness built in, a system that automatically turns on the laser when you draw. The
Viridian holster is so interesting and well designed, it makes me reconsider my long-standing aversion to pistols in pockets.”, writes Sweeney.

According to Viridian President Brian Hedeen, “Patrick clearly sees the value of the ECR Instant-On functionality. It’s a game-changer in the laser sighting industry and the awesome patent-pending technology is only available from Viridian. We include a holster to make the entire system complete. A variety of additional ECR Instant-On holsters are available from leading holster manufacturers such as Galco, DeSantis, and Crossbreed.”

Sweeney goes on to mention just how bright the R5 green laser is, especially in comparison to traditional red lasers. He notes that daylight visibility is so good that “you can pick out the green dot at 100 yards.” Regarding nighttime visibility, he goes on to note “let’s just say that if you need to bring the mothership in on final approach, a Viridian R5 will be visible enough.”

The Viridian Reactor 5 is currently available for purchase through Viridian’s network of distributors and dealers nationwide. The Reactor 5 is also available for the Ruger LC9/LC380. M&P Shield models will begin shipping very shortly. – See more at:
