Viridian Weapon Technologies is rolling out a game-changing hand stop laser, the HS1, which is now available with an infrared beam. The new HS1 IR is the first infrared laser developed by Viridian and combines the ergonomics of a hand stop with a new layer of functionality and an ergonomic stability. The new laser is ideal for use on the AR-type platform and is available in both Black and Flat Dark Earth housings.
“When we announced the HS1, we immediately had requests for an IR version,” said Brian Hedeen, President and CEO at Viridian. “After extensive testing, the new HS1 IR is now ready. This is another milestone for Viridian. This is one of the most compact and ergonomic infrared aiming devices available and a must-have addition for anyone with NVG capabilities. The new HS1 IR is ideal for tactical use or even those looking to get an extra edge on wild hogs.”
By integrating the laser into the bandstop, Viridian’s HS1 provides an intuitive control surface and instantaneous targeting guidance, making it the first laser integrated into a hand stop. The shooter’s support hand grips the HS1 and the forend, and this grip activates the laser. Just like its green and red laser cousins, this new IR laser will connect to forend of your rifle on either an M-Lok or Picatinny mount and can be easily adjusted for windage and elevation.
