The Taurus Spectrum, a .380 ACP concealed carry pistol first introduced at SHOT Show 2017, is now available out of the box with a Viridian E-Series red laser.

According to the presser, Viridian’s E Series red laser sight mounts onto the Taurus Spectrum’s trigger guard. It’s visible out to 25 yards in daylight and up to one mile at night. The laser features a fast on-off switch, up to six hours of battery life, and a model-specific design that integrates with the Spectrum’s profile for a slim, trim look and snag-free draw.

“Taurus continues to put out unique, make-sense firearms,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The American-made Spectrum is an exciting product and we’re happy to have several laser sights for those who purchase this ideal concealed carry option.”

Not content with the E Series, the Spectrum can also accommodate Viridian’s Reactor Green and Red Gen 2 lasers.

Touted in the press release as a “significant leap forward in micro semi-auto handgun design and performance,” the Taurus Spectrum incorporates ergonomic soft-touch overmold panels into the grip and slide, which the company says boosts “positive operation under stressful conditions.” In addition, the range of color options gives users an added customization opportunity.

The striker-fired Taurus Spectrum .380 pistol with the Viridian E-Series laser is available at a MSRP of $359.
