Viridian HS1 Hand Stop Laser Now Shipping

Friday, January 15th, 2021

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – January 15, 2021 –Viridian Weapon Technologies is pleased to announce that their much-anticipated hand stop laser, the HS1, is now available. The HS1 has a minimal footprint but adds exceptional control and targeting speed to M-Lok equipped rifles.

“We were humbled by the initial demand for the HS1,” said Brian Hedeen, President and CEO at Viridian. “Our first run sold out instantly. The HS1’s intuitive design cuts down time-to-target. But it’s not just the addition of a laser—the hand stop adds an element of control and precision to rifles. And now they’re back in stock.”

Viridian is known for their innovative laser aiming devices and the HS1 is the first of its kind to add a laser into a hand stop. As the shooter’s support hand grips the HS1, the green laser activates. The process is natural and instantaneous and enhances the control surfaces of a rifle’s handguard.

M-Lok mounts make installation effortless. The HS1’s laser adjusts for windage and elevation. MSRP for the Viridian HS1 is $179. The HS1 is currently available through retailers, or on Viridian’s website:

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