First Look: Viridian Reactor 5 Green Laser for Glock 42

Viridian_Reactor_5_G42_glock42_FViridian has expanded its Reactor 5 series (R5) laser sights to fit the Glock 42.

The new Viridian R5 G42 is the first and only green laser sight currently available for the Glock 42. As with previous Reactor models, the R5 G42 automatically activates once it is drawn from the holster.

The Viridian R5 G42 green laser sight comes with a free hybrid holster constructed of leather and polymer. The new Reactor 5 laser sight for the G42 is available now for $239.

Viridian's R5 lasers are also available for the following handguns:


  • Ruger LCP
  • Ruger LC9/LC9s
