Viridian, best known for its line of green lasers, has released the new Reactor TL tactical light for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. The Reactor TL joins the R5-Shield green laser and the R5-R-Shield red laser in Viridian’s lineup of M&P Shield offerings.

“Demand for this product has been high, especially by law enforcement.” says Viridian President Brian Hedeen. “Officers often carry a Shield as a back-up or off-duty weapon. They really understand the value of a great light.”

The Reactor TL utilizes Viridian’s proprietary Radiance illumination technology which illuminates more than twice the horizontal area of conventional lights with circular output for faster discovery and smoother tracking of targets. The light is a powerful 140 lumen white light that can be set for constant on or strobe. Viridian’s Enhanced Combat Readiness Instant-On technology means that the light is activated the instant the gun is drawn from the included pocket holster, saving precious moments in a high-pressure encounter. Setting the light before holstering means that it will be there without delay or the need for buttons or switches.

With the Reactor TL, M&P Shield users now have a choice of the entire Reactor line and can outfit their M&P Shield as needed for whatever comes their way. Each Reactor TL includes two sets of batteries in addition to the holster.
