The Viridian E-Series laser brings enhanced target acquisition to the Ruger MAX-9 pistol.

One can make the argument: you judge a firearm platform based on its accessory components available. Classics including the Ruger 10-22, Remington 870 and AR-15 certainly prove that adage true. And now we’re starting to see that same type of market spring up around the growing class of mirco-compact carry guns. Right on time, the Viridian E-Series Lasers now fit the new Ruger MAX-9.

Viridian E-Series Ruger MAX-9

At first glance, the Viridian and Ruger make a formidable pairing. The MAX-9 brings 12+1 rounds into an optics-ready micro-compact platform. Meanwhile, the Viridian E-Series offers laser aiming devices in both red and green, helping put rounds on target.

“Viridian is pleased to work with Ruger to bring these new lasers to those who want to add to the MAX-9’s functionality,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The E-Series lasers are available in both red and green providing a full range of options for those who rely on the speed of a laser to cut down time-to-target. The MAX-9 is a dynamic new pistol, and Viridian’s E-Series laser is the perfect addition.”

The Viridian E-Series mounted on a Ruger MAX-9 comprise the latest in several Viridian accessories for Ruger products. The red laser offers a familiar tool for low-light shooting. The green laser offers visibility up to 100 yards in daylight and more than two miles in darkness.

The E-Series laser mounts to the Ruger’s trigger guard. It features an ambidextrous on/off button with a 5-minute auto shut off to preserve battery life.

Prices for E-Series Lasers for the Ruger MAX-9 start at $132. For even more info, please visit
