The Viridian Unleashes a Bright Green Laser
The Viridian takes its name from the word viridis which is Latin for "green". As explained in Why Green, Green lasers are substantially more visible to the human eye than red lasers. But there is much more to the equation as all green lasers are not created equal. Whether produced overseas or here in the United States, many green lasers are either not made to withstand the rigors of a gun application or are simply not up to the quality standards that one would expect. A very large portion of advertised 5mW manufactured green laser modules available are either very low power (under 2mW), very unstable in terms of power, or unable to withstand recoil. The patent-pending Viridian green laser has been manufactured to excel in all of these categories to produce a very stable bright green at the maximum legally allowed power for civil use in the United States.
The Viridian is Purpose-Built
In addition to offering a very powerful green laser, Laser Aiming Systems Corporation designs every product within the Viridian line to perfectly fit specific gun models. This means that each Viridian product captures its visual cues directly from the gun it is designed for as it seamlessly integrates onto the rail and latch bar. By doing so, the Viridian line of green laser sights changes the traditional gun/laser combination from being one of a bulky add-on situation to one of a compact cohesive gun/laser system.
The Viridian is Compact
Many lasers, green or otherwise, are built for rifles and are up to four or five inches long. The Viridian is built for specific handguns and amazingly fits perfectly on your accessory rail. This is an impressive feat given that green lasers require an additional crystal and are much more complex than the standard red ones with their direct injection diodes. We know of no other green laser sight currently on the market that is compacted anywhere near this level! The benefit to you is that this robust laser will become as one with your handgun as it fits snug and secure in front of the trigger guard and below the barrel.
The Viridian is Durable, yet Lightweight
The Viridian is manufactured with lightweight polymers very similar to the material used by today's leading gun manufacturers.
The Viridian Windage & Elevation Adjustments can be Counted On
As many have experienced, not all laser sights on the market have adequately functioning windage and elevation adjustments. With the Viridian green laser you can count on quick and easy Allen wrench adjustments to get your laser zeroed in and to hold a zero.
The Viridian is Easy To Use
Simply slide your Viridian green laser sight onto your accessory rail until it firmly locks into place. Then, as you are in the shooters stance holding your handgun, simply extend your right index finger to locate the Viridian's On/Off switch to have complete control of the beam of green laser light. And with our laser you can leave it on as long as you'd like as the circuit board is designed with Automatic Power Control (APC) to avoid overheating and/or malfunctioning.
The Viridian is an Exceptional Value
Due to the added technology and cost, green lasers had previously not been economically or physically feasible for civilian use - especially for handguns. With its launch of the Viridian and its patent-pending internal design, Laser Aiming Systems Corporation has put together the best technology at the best possible price. You can now have a laser sight that emits a perfectly collimated beautiful beam of green light all enclosed within a condensed package. The result is a far superior product at prices comparable to traditional red laser sights.
