Viridian has released two new R5 Reactor series green lasers one for the Glock 26/27 and another for the Springfield Armory XDS.

The R5-XDS is the only trigger guard-mounted green laser in the industry. It comes with a belt holster that works with the R5 Reactor’s Enhanced Combat Readiness instant-on technology, automatically activating the laser as the gun is drawn.

“Our customers spoke and we listened.” said Viridian President Brian Hedeen. He continued, “Our rail-mounted C5L fits the XDS perfectly. Yet our fans wanted the smallest, lightest green laser possible for their XDS and we delivered.”

The R5 Reactor line continues to grow with the addition of a second new model, this one for the Glock 26 and 27 pistols. It fits Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glock 26 and 27 guns, but it also works with Gen 3 and 4 Glock 19, 23, 32, 33, 36, 38, and 39 models. It also comes with a holster compatible with the ECR instant-on system.

The ECR system, a core technology of the R5 Reactor line, can be set ahead of time to the operation mode the user prefers. The laser is off while the gun is holstered, but it activated instantly when the gun is drawn. The operator does not need to do anything other than pull the gun from the holster; the laser automatically turns on in the mode set.

In addition to the included holsters from Viridian, other ECR-compatible holsters will be available from Galco, DeSantis, and Crossbreed.
