X5L shooting review.

by emurc, from United States, AK Written on October 17, 2014
The X5L is a great laser/light system. I ordered it on Thursday 10/9 and received it on Tuesday 10/14 which I was very surprised on how fast it arrived from Illinois to Alaska with the standard shipping. The shipping packaging it arrived in was perfect with no issues. The product packing was also great with the light box attached to holster box. The light itself is solid and does not feel flimsy like others yet it still is very light in weight and lines up perfectly with the weapon with no "overhang" on the sides like other light/laser products. I have it on my Glock 19 which fits perfectly. The light extends about 1/2 an inch or so past barrel and the light gets a little powder on it after shooting but does not effect the overall brightness of the light or laser. The mounting bolt and latches are very secure and will keep it in place even after a few hundred rounds. The light is very bright for such a small package and the laser is extremely bright even in daylight. Very easy to adjust windage and elevation on laser, even after a few hundred rounds the laser still kept its "zero" which I thought was great because other brands I have tried won't. The different modes of light and laser are great and can be changed easily. Overall I give the X5L a 5/5. The only downfall I have is the holster. The safety latch that holds gun in place feels flimsy and feels like it can break easily if dropped or hit hard against something(keep in mind CCW guys and gals). The button that releases ...

Problem with Holster for Sig P220

by tower3, from United States, CA Written on October 8, 2014
The X5L laser/flashlight is outstanding. Same width as my Sig P220. On/Off button can be reached with trigger finger. Pricey but I think it might give me the edge if the worst case happens in the nighttime.
The holster is another matter, there is no retention! The retention clip rests on the side of the lite and does nothing to hold the pistol in place. The weight of the gun rests on the lens of the lite by a 1/4"wide hook at the bottom of the holster. seems with some bouncing around it could break the lite. I've E-mailed Viridian with my concerns hoping for suggestions or corrections but received no reply. The no reply is the reason I can't recommend anyone to spend $300 to receive no factory support....

Nice but expensive

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on October 12, 2013
Awesome product- so bright- both the LED white light and the green laser light. Just playing with it I could see it on the exterior wall of a house 2 blocks away during the DAY! Not that one would ever shoot a handgun that far away, but still pretty impressive.
I feel safer with this product- people say handguns aren't accurate (for home defense)- so the green laser and flashlight make it clear what your're aiming at... seems like a can't miss with this one!
Pros: Impressive, Bright, Awesome
Cons: Expensive, big, one screw...

Like the auto-on fiture, would have liked the battery monitor on other Viridians

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on September 22, 2013
Magnet mounted in holster turns laser and/or light on when drawing from holster.
Can change battery without taking laser off the rail or changing zero.
Other Viridian lasers have a battery monitor that flashes red when battery is low. I would have liked to have that feature on this laser, but I can use a rechargeable CR-123 and rotate batteries.
Instructions call for removing laser when cleaning the pistol, but when I disassemble pistol, laser is away from any solvents I use for cleaning.
Pros: Auto-on when drawing from holster. Easy battery change.
Cons: Other Viridian lasers have a battery monitor. Would have loved to have that on this one....

Viridian X5L

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 31, 2013
I just received my Viridian X5L, removed the shrink wrap, and opened the box. Removed the owners/operators manual and read it. I removed the unit, installed the battery, and pressed the button. This activated the green laser in a rapid strobe mode and that was it. No matter what I did, I could not change the laser from this mode. I went back to look for a better description on how to operate the laser but the manual apportions only one page and a table to operation and there were no details available at all. I tried removing the battery to "reset" the unit to the default mode; still nothing but a strobe laser with no light and only as long as I depressed a button. I removed the battery, repacked the laser, and returned it immediately. The unit doesn't work and the manual is so brief and vague it is not helpful.
Pros: easy to mount and ergonomics are good
Cons: simply didn't work, had to return it....
Would recommend: Yes
