Viridian Weapon Technologies has created the new line of E Series laser sights specifically for the brand-new Ruger-57 pistol. The E Series sights for the Ruger-57 are designed to complement the Ruger-57’s accuracy, and for Ruger customers seeking even more sighting solutions, the new universal C Series and X Series laser/light combos are also now available as an effortless upgrade for this new handgun.

“We’re closing out 2019 on a high note with this exciting product announcement for Viridian and Ruger fans,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We worked with Ruger’s product development team in advance to make adjustments to our popular E Series model to guarantee that customers would be able to purchase a reliable laser sight for the new pistol. When paired with the Ruger-57, the E Series makes it an incredibly accurate and powerful setup.”

First introduced in 2016, the E Series laser sight gives everyday firearms owners who carry concealed a sleek model-specific, trigger-guard-mounted sighting solution. The E Series delivers rapid target acquisition at an affordable price. The tried-and-true technology and unmatched performance makes the E Series perfect for your daily carry gun, giving you added capabilities at a very reasonable price. 

The Viridian C Series and X Series give customers their choice of dazzlingly bright green and red lasers along with a brilliant tactical light, mounted right on the gun. The INSTANT-ON activation and multiple modes of operation of these light/laser combos gives you everything you need to dominate the day or night. With their simple universal mount, they give you the convenience you need while still offering Viridian’s outstanding performance and dependability.
