Viridian Weapon Technologies has just released their new 4-LUX CQ Grip Light, which combines a 400 lumen tactical carbine light with an angled foregrip that can be mounted on the M-Lok accessory rail of any modern carbine or shotgun. After introducing the first combination laser-hand stop, the HSAR hand stop laser, launching a combination tactical light and grip was the next logical step for Viridian.

“We’re extremely proud to introduce this brand-new product to Viridian fans, firearm enthusiasts and shooters of all kinds,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We’re dedicated to helping shooters optimize their performance and gain precise control of their firearm, and it’s no secret that the 4LUX gets the job done.”

The heart of the Viridian 4 LUX is a 400 lumen white LED light that was designed for use in tactical CQB scenarios. The light is engineered to provide a 90-minute runtime via a pair of 3-volt CR2 batteries while its combination high impact polymer and aluminum protection also provide impact protection and resistance against weather elements.

Viridian 4 –LUX CQ Grip Light Specifications:

  • 400 lumen (850 candela) combination forward grip and tactical carbine light
  • White LED light source that is grip activated
  • LED light source and floodlight lens are optimized for close quarters battle scenarios
  • 90 minute run time
  • 7.6 ounce weight
  • Operational temperature range of -40 through 140 degrees Fahrenheit

The new Viridian 4LUX Grip Light is made in the USA in Minnesota, where Viridian Weapon Technologies calls home. Retail pricing for the 4LUX Grip Light is currently $199. The 4LUX comes standard with Viridian’s 30-day money back guarantee and 7-year warranty.
