Eats batteries

by Yodamon, from United States, FL Written on December 5, 2014
The holster/laser combo seems to work, but I can't keep a battery for more than a few days.
It turns on when I un-holster the gun, but apparently does not stop drawing current when in the holster. The battery only lasts a day or so. I tried a new battery and turned the laser OFF before storing the gun. When I got to the range a week later the battery was dead again.
I tried a 3rd new battery and stored the gun out of the holster and that battery was dead a week later.

I'm in the process of trying to get some help from Viridian, but I can't get through on their customer service line. I'm hoping they will respond to my email. I'll repost with an update....
Pros:
  • small size
  • easy instalation
  • Green laser work well
Cons:
  • Battery Life
Would recommend: No

Instant On Does NOT Work

by Ric, from United States, NV Written on December 1, 2014
Viridian Green Laser is supposed to instantly turn on when removed from its specially designed holster. Mine does not do that. The dealer and Ruger were not any help. Ruger had my gun for weeks and they returned it to me in the same non working condition that I sent it to them. Now Ruger and the dealer tell me that I need to contact Viridian to get a new laser. Viridian does not answer their phone and all the customer service links on their web site are dead. Finally I received a return call from Viridian and I was informed that they can have me send the laser back to them via UPS ground (7-10 days) and they will repair NOT replace it (1-2 days) and they will return it to me via UPS ground (another 7-10 days). That solution is totally unacceptable for a product that did not work out of the box. For that reason I can not recommend Viridian....

Good product but would like extras

by lasernewbe, from United States, CO Written on October 26, 2014
I do like the instant on feature. Batteries don't last long and they are not as easy to find except on internet. In hindsight, the light model would be more useful. I would like to see a light/laser combo for this model....
Pros:
  • Well made, fair price.
Cons:
  • Battery Life
Best Used for:
  • Low light
Would recommend: Yes

viridian laser

by montana larry, from United States, MT Written on September 27, 2014
its a great laser it works well in bright light only draw back is battery life is short if you buy on get some extra ones you will need them, i also have the new crimson trace green and i think the viridian is the best, the only thing is it does not have the on off button on grip like the crimson does but im having trouble with the crimson trace right out of the box so i recommend the viridian laser...

Great sight, weak battery life

by Josh, from United States, FL Written on September 5, 2014
Sights functionality is great, distance and visibility is amazing. The batteries that came with the sight died almost immediately... Not sure if this was because of this particular battery or if all batteries will do the same as I have not yet replaced it....
Pros:
  • Functionality
  • Distance
Cons:
  • Battery Life
Would recommend: Yes

Good Laser

by lasernewbe, from United States, CO Written on July 31, 2014
Fit and function is great. It appears to be a well designed and built product. I like the automatic on feature when you draw. The battery indicator is a plus. The green is easier to see vs. the red. Good price for the features and the pocket holster....
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent features.

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 22, 2013
Love the auto-on when drawing from the provided pocket holster.
Monitor tells you when the battery is starting to get low.
Batteries are expensive, but I assume that is driven by green laser power requirements.
Pros: Auto-on when drawing from holster. Battery monitor tells you when battery starts to get low.
Cons: Must disassemble to replace battery. Odd sized battery....

Works as advertised

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on August 16, 2013
This laser with the ECR feature and holster is perfect for pocket carry. When you remove it from the holster, it's on! No fumbling for the on/off switch. The green laser is much more visible than red lasers in all but full sunlight. I've had both red and green.
Pros: ECR feature, high visibility...
