While best known for its green lasers, Viridian has introduced the Reactor 5 Red Laser as a less-expensive option for conceal-carry pistols.

"We wanted to offer shooters all of the quality and state-of-the-art technology that the Reactor provides at an unbeatable price," said Viridian President Brian Hedeen. "That's exactly what we did.”

The Viridian Elite Red 635 nm laser provides a bright red laser, with a sharp red dot for positive targeting and higher accuracy.

The R5-R is currently available for the Ruger LCP, Ruger LC9, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield and all Kahr polymer-framed pistols in 9, 40, and 45. Look for Reactor fits for popular models by Glock, SIG, and Springfield later this year.
