New Viridian HS1 Lasers and New FDE HS1 Housings

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – July 08, 2021 –Viridian Weapon Technologies is pleased to announce that its celebrated and innovative hand stop laser, the HS1, is now available with a red laser. Both the new red laser HS1 and the original green laser version are available in both Black and Flat Dark Earth housings.

“The HS1 has proven to be exceptionally popular,” said Brian Hedeen, President and CEO at Viridian. “The laser aiming capabilities add to the speed of an already fast rifle design and the minimalist hand stop design is ideal for ergonomic control without getting in the way. And now we’re adding new colors to both the laser and the housing. Fans of FDE can match their HS1 to their rifle’s forend and those who prefer red lasers have that option available, too, in Black or FDE.”

Viridian’s HS1 is the first laser integrated into a hand stop. The shooter’s support hand grips the HS1 and this grip activates the laser. The HS1 provides an intuitive control surface and instantaneous targeting guidance.

M-Lok® mounts make installation effortless and Viridian now offers a picatinny to M-Lok rail adapter. The HS1’s laser adjusts for windage and elevation. The HS1 lasers will be available through retailers, or on Viridian’s website:

• M-Lok Mounts
• Grip Activation
• Daytime-visible Green Laser
• Ergonomic Design for varying types of guns
• Single 1/3n battery
• Adjustable for Windage and Elevation
