    Viridian announced the R5-G42, a green laser sight for the Glock 42 pistol. The unit mounts on the trigger guard of the pistol and uses the same Instant-On capability the other lasers in the REACTOR series have. The unit ships with a hybrid, outside-the-waistband holster.

    The company states the lasers are shipping now.  The MSRP for the kits is $239.

    From Viridian:

    The groundbreaking REACTOR® series launched in 2013 is expanding rapidly and now fits the hot-selling GLOCK 42. Viridian’s R5-G42 is the first and only green laser for the GLOCK 42. Since pioneering the first commercially-available green laser designed for pistols, Viridian has led the industry with technological breakthroughs and has done it again with the new GLOCK 42 model. Like other REACTOR® models, this model automatically ignites instantly when drawn from holster!

    Only the REACTOR® Series from Viridian offers ECR® INSTANT-ON™, includes a free holster, has a bi-color battery indicator, and multiple modes of operation. “It really is the perfect product! Everything you need and nothing you don’t.”, said Viridian President Brian Hedeen. He continued, “Traditional activation buttons and switches aren’t needed when you are armed with our superior technology – a laser that turns on the instant you draw.”

    The R5-G42 includes a free hybrid holster. Constructed of leather and polymer, it offers the best of both worlds. Additional holster options are available from many leading holster manufacturers.

    The R5-G42 is now shipping. Contact major distributors or call Viridian at 1-800-990-9390 to order.
