Viridian X5L-RS Light & Laser Sight for Long Guns

posted on April 27, 2014

Viridian, one of the top providers of professional-grade green laser sights, has released the all-new X5L-RS light and green laser combo module for rifles and shotguns. An exclusive two-button pressure pad allows the laser and light to operate independently of each other. The sight is fitted with unique rotary selector dial for quickly and easily switching between multiple light and laser modes. A bright 190-lumen LED flashlight drives away the darkness while the 532 NM wave length, Class III green laser beam is clearly visible in both low light and daylight conditions.

This sight system is powered by a single CR123A 3v lithium battery which provides up to 6-hours of constant laser runtime, 10-hours of pulsing laser runtime, or 60 minutes of laser and light runtime. A quick-twist of the light housing allows for swift battery changes and the included Universal Mounting System is compatible with most rifle and shotgun accessory rails.
