We have received some of the new Viridian GLK laser units in stock. These fit standard frame Glock handguns with a rail and are extremely bright and visible in low light and daylight shooting situations. High quality polymer construction ensures these units hold up in adverse conditions and a slip resistant rubberized on/off switch is in place on both sides of the unit. This laser fits standard Kydex holster produced by Blackhawk that is designed for this model and provides solid holster retention.
As many know, laser sights can be very beneficial; but there is one major flaw… ordinary red lasers can be next to impossible to see in most daylight conditions. The benefit of a green laser is that it is much more visible, allowing for it to be used anytime, day or night, indoors or outdoors, permitting you to track your target quicker and more accurately. Additionally, because green lasers are so much more visible to the human eye, you can actually see a very intimidating visible beam in low-light conditions.
Why Green Lasers are More Visible
Green is closer to the center of the visible spectrum, at 532 Nanometers, so it’s easier for our eyes to perceive the color vs. a red laser at 635 Nanometers. In fact, a green laser can appear as much as 50 times brighter than the red equivalent and as can be seen from the below charts 532 nm is the ideal wavelength to maximize visibility during day or night.
