Viridian Weapon Technologies’ latest innovation — the X series Gen 3 Laser Sight— is rolling out to consumers, the company says, announcing that the Gen 3 is now officially shipping to consumers.

Available in black or flat dark earth, the X Series Gen 3 can be nabbed online through Viridian’s website or through select retailers nationwide. The laser sight is a weapon-mounted accessory boasting a bright laser and momentary activation technology as well as Instant-On activation. The Gen 3 models take the X Series to new heights offering a removable, rechargeable battery and on-board charging with indicator lights. The latest series also delivers a sleeker build, fitting most holsters created for the Streamlight TLR1.

“We continually strive to produce the most advanced weapon-mounted lasers and accessories available, and the X Series Gen 3 family of products is no exception,” Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen said in a news release. “Introduced in 2008, the original X5L was the first-ever green laser and light combo to market. In 2011, we raised the bar again with the X5L Gen 2. Today, we’re excited to give customers a new generation of our popular X Series green laser with rechargeable batteries and a sleeker package.”

Utilizing a universal mount, the Gen 3 produces a light output of 500 lumens while offering multiple modes of operation. The X-Series Gen 3 Laser Sight is priced at $409.
