The Viridian C5L represents the cutting edge of laser aiming device technology. With the ability to be paired with any railed compact or subcompact handgun, the device is an easy way to accessorize your concealed-carry pistol for everyday defense. Each device comes with its own holster equipped with the Enhanced Combat Readiness (ECR) system, which activates the C5L upon your draw. Viridian’s green laser technology is an added bonus, giving shooters a more visible beam during daylight conditions.

The compact C5L unit is only 1.9 inches long, 1.4 inches high and 1.3 inches wide, allowing it to keep your concealed-carry pistol uncluttered in terms of profile. Made from Zytel polymer and aircraft-grade aluminum, the unit weighs only 2.3 ounces. It features a Class IIIa beam that is windage and elevation adjustable with a range of up to 100 yards in daylight and two miles at night. Powered by one CR2 3V battery, the C5L can last four-plus hours during the constant-on setting, seven-plus hours in pulse mode and one hour when used in combination with the device’s integral, 100-lumen tactical light. The C5L is also designed to return to whatever mode it was last holstered in, allowing for an instant-on effect that could save seconds (and lives) in an emergency.
