Viridian Reactor R5 Red Laser
Viridian Reactor R5 Red Laser

We train to use our sights on the range, but in a dangerous situation it is natural to focus on the threat. One very good solution to this dilemma is the incorporation of laser devices that allow you to see where your shots will go on the target without having to focus on your sights. This is especially an advantage when using small pocket pistols, many of which have very small sights to begin with.

The other issue is, if you have to draw your gun to use it in an emergency situation will you have time or remember to activate the laser? Viridian Green Laser Sights has answered the call with its latest Viridian Reactor R5 red laser unit. The Reactor series is designed for pocket pistols and comes with a purpose-designed ECR (Enhanced Combat Readiness) holster that instantly turns the laser on when you draw your pistol. All Viridian lasers feature ECR Instant-On. No need to consciously activate the laser or even get a firm grip!

Originally, the Reactor R5 laser was available in green only, but some people preferred red, and there is a cost savings as well. The design of the laser adds almost no weight or bulk to the gun, and it actually helps to hide the outline of the gun in the pocket to prevent printing.

The battery lasts for 12 hours in pulse mode, plus it lets you know when it needs replacing. It is currently available to fit the Ruger LCP, LC9 and LC380 pistols as well as the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, the Kahr PM9, 40 and 45, the Springfield XD-S, and the Glock 42, G26 and G27.
