Viridian® Now Shipping All-New X Series® Green Laser Sight and Taclight Exclusively for Long Guns

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – April 5, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies has expanded its popular X Series Gen 3 offerings to give long-gun users the X5L-RS® Gen 3 green laser sight and taclight for rifles and shotguns. The all-new X5L-RS Gen 3 models are now shipping and can be purchased online. For a limited time, customers who buy the new X5L-RS Gen 3 will also receive a free V310 Illuminator (a $229 value) as a special introductory offer. This offer expires on April 30, 2019.

The new Viridian X5L-RS Gen 3 is the latest version of the original X5L green laser sight and taclight, with a heavy-duty, waterproof two-button pressure switch for use on rifles and shotguns. Designed to fit most full-sized railed long guns, the X5L-RS comes equipped with a powerful 5mW green laser (510-520nm) for maximum visibility day or night and a brilliant 500 lumen CREE LED taclight. Secure universal mounting, six modes of operation and a removable, rechargeable battery with on-board charging and battery indicator lights round out these high-performance features.

“Viridian is thrilled to give customers a new X Series model designed exclusively for long guns,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We’re always striving to produce the most advanced weapon-mounted accessories available, and this new offering is no exception. Like its X5L Gen 3 counterpart, the X5L-RS includes a removable, rechargeable battery that eliminates the need to ever buy traditional batteries again. Plus, customers will know the exact battery power status in real time, making it an extremely convenient, intuitive addition to virtually any railed rifle or shotgun.”
