Misleading advertising, does not fit M&Pc rail well at all.

by reviewer1011, from United States, ME Written on August 3, 2014
This is depicted as fitting perfectly on a S&W M&Pc. Hence, I bought it for mine. It does not fit anything close to perfectly, and when I called the customer service about this, they explained that it is a "universal mount" and meant to bend to fit whatever gun rail you put it on. The light works excellently, up to the point where I try to put it on my gun. Then, it mounts cockeyed, and frankly this is not how it is depicted, and if I knew what a pain it would be to mount it, I would not have bought it. Be warned, it will mount, but not well, and will look cockeyed the whole time. The rail mounting brackets are too narrow for the rail on the gun....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • does not mount properly on M&Pc
  • rail mounting system is quite flawed
Would recommend: No

Viridian C5 on Walther PPQ and P22

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, LA Written on June 24, 2013
I purchased my first Viridian C5 for my Walther PPQ. The unit fit perfectly and looked like it was specifically designed for the PPQ. I wondered if it would fit flush (with the barrel) on my wife's P22, So I tried it with the same mount I used for the PPQ and it fit perfectly. I cancelled my order for the Walther P22 red laser and order another C5 for the P22.
Pros: Small size, green laser highly visible even outdoors...
Would recommend: Yes

Technical

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 26, 2012
Battery life - if used for security and safety at home you can't leave battery in or it will discharge over a period of time. This makes the product ineffective when needed in a life threatening situation should the need arise after a period of inactivity.
Pros: bright and very visible
Cons: battery life if left in unit...
Would recommend: Yes

Awesome high-quality bright laser

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 10, 2012
As owner of several inexpensive lasers, the quality of this product is truly impressive. Bought it for my wife's S&W M&P 9mm compact (i save the cheap stuff for myself), and she loves it. Directions are clear, has several mounting options, goes on in minutes. I truly understand now why Viridian commands a premium price-- it is a truly premium product.
Pros: This thing screams quality
Cons: Even though a good price here, it is still kind of pricey...
Would recommend: Yes

Citizen

I have had a number of Crimson Trace lasers that have served me well. The one time I did have a malfunction Crimson Trace immediately and without cost fixed the problem.

I recently purchased a Viridian C5L and while I do like the way it works, it failed (light and laser went dim) after less than a month. After unsuccessfully trying two new batteries, I tried to contact the company. Their website says they pride themselves on customer service; although with repeated phone calls I never got an answer. I left two phone messages as per their recorded message and I have sent two emails without any answer.

I pride myself on leaving reviews, both when I get quality service and when I don't. This is a company that charges A LOT for good product but does not follow up with good customer service. I am leaving this same review on Cabelas, Amazon and Planet Optics websites.

I am in the market for another laser and I will once again purchase a Crimson Tract unit. ...
