Viridian Announces New Reactor Gen 2 Weapon-Mounted Accessories

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.-( Viridian Weapon Technologies is pleased to announce a new generation of REACTOR weapon-mounted accessories, including the R5 Gen 2 Green Laser Sight, R5-R Gen 2 Red Laser Sight and RTL Gen 2 Taclight. The new models are currently being shipped to retailers across the country.

The REACTOR Gen 2 models come standard with an upgraded gun-specific holster. Each REACTOR product and accompanying IWB holster is equipped with Viridian’s patented INSTANT-ON technology, ensuring that the laser/light activates automatically when the gun is drawn.

The strongest green laser on the market, Viridian’s R5 Gen 2 Green Laser Sight features triple battery life, with over three hours of laser use in constant mode and up to six hours in pulse mode. With upgraded circuitry and other improvements from previous models, the new R5-R Gen 2 Red Laser Sight is an affordable, powerful and versatile red laser offering.

The RTL Gen 2 Taclight is a 140-lumen weapon-mounted light capable of running for up to two hours continuously. User-defined operating modes allow a disorienting strobe mode function while Radiance Combat Optics stretches the light pattern horizontally to put light where it is needed most.

“We’re proud to be the only laser/light manufacturer to include a gun-specific holster, as a regular offering, with every Viridian REACTOR product,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “And when we created the Gen 2 models, we knew that wouldn’t change. Customers will continue to receive the added value of a custom-fit microfiber holster, and they’ll also see upgraded performance when they buy the new Gen 2 models.”

Each REACTOR Gen 2 product is available for most leading compact pistols, including the latest from Ruger, Springfield Armory, Taurus and more. Like all Viridian lasers and taclights, all REACTOR Gen 2 lasers and lights include an industry-best seven-year limited warranty.
