MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – September 27, 2017 – Viridian Weapon Technologies offers highly advanced weapon-mounted accessories for the fifth generation of Glock G19 and G17 pistols. Several lasers and tactical lights compatible with the Gen5 models that feature over 20 design modifications from their Gen4 predecessors are available now.

Customers wishing to upgrade to the Glock Gen5 models can easily mount Viridian accessories—including the C Series® and X Series® laser/light combos—to the new pistols with no modifications and no additional purchases required. Viridian REACTOR® lasers are also compatible with the new G19 Gen5 and are a great option for customers seeking a high-performance laser with gun-specific holster.

The universal C Series fits all railed pistols and is the most intuitive compact laser/light combo on the market. It features the brightest green and red lasers, RADIANCE® taclights, CREE® LED and proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology, ensuring that the laser activates automatically when the gun is drawn.

The X Series is the ultimate upgrade for full-sized pistols. It outfits railed pistols—like the G19 and G17 Gen5—with the brightest green laser for daytime visibility and the CREE LED for nighttime use. The Elite Red laser model offers precision targeting for the budget conscious.

Built to fit the G19 and other gun models, the REACTOR R5 green laser sight is up to 50 times brighter than red. The R5-R red laser sight offers similar performance at a lower price point. Each REACTOR laser includes a free holster that is equipped with Viridian’s patented INSTANT-ON activation system. This means that the split-second the gun clears the holster, the brilliant laser automatically ignites.
