    Viridian announced they are now selling Reactor 5 (R5) green lasers for the Kahr 9mm and .40 S&W pistols. The Kahr version of the R5 lasers will ship with a hybrid-style holster (leather backing with polymer shell to hold the gun.) Prior versions of the R5 did not ship with the holsters. This model is an outside-the-waistband model.

    The R5 mounts to the trigger guard of the Kahr pistols. I’ve had a chance to examine other Viridian R5 models and found the mounting to be very secure. The new laser package will retail for $239.

    One of the features of the R5 laser is an “instant on” technology. A shooter can turn the laser on, and then insert the gun into the holster. The holster will deactivate the laser while it is carried. When drawn, the laser will instantly come on. The laser can be carried in an off mode so that it does not instantly come on when drawn.
