A day after Ruger’s announcement of their brand-new MAX-9 pistol (details on TTAG HERE), Viridian Weapon Technologies has announced their E-Series red and green laser sight modules for the little gat.

FYI, “welcome21” is a whopping 30-percent-off coupon code for, as far as I can tell, nearly everything on Viridian’s website (my browser plugin alerted me to this and it works with a bunch of different things I threw into my cart).

Viridian’s MAX-9 Laser Sights press release follows:

MAX-9 Laser Sights Announced by Viridian

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – March 16, 2021 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is proud to announce new green and red E-Series™ laser sights for the new Ruger MAX-9™. Ruger’s new sub-compact 9mm is ideal for every day carry, and the new E-Series lasers add to the MAX-9’s functionality by speeding up target acquisition.

“Viridian is pleased to work with Ruger to bring these new lasers to those who want to add to the MAX-9’s functionality,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The E-Series lasers are available in both red and green providing a full range of options for those who rely on the speed of a laser to cut down time-to-target. The MAX-9 is a dynamic new pistol, and Viridian’s E-Series laser is the perfect addition.”

Viridian, one of the world’s largest independent providers of weapon-mounted technology, specializes in versatile gun-specific lasers. The E-Series green and red laser sights for the Ruger MAX-9 are the most recent additions to a deep line of Ruger pairings. The red E-Series laser is perfect for low-light shooting. The green E-Series laser is visible at up to 100 yards in daylight and at over two miles at night.

The E-Series laser sights mount to the trigger guard and feature an ambidextrous on/off button with a 5-minute auto shut off to preserve battery life.

  1. Cool…interestingly enough the Ruger Max 9 is selling for well above MSRP on Gunbroker.The new S&W shield not so much. I’m getting a full or 4″ barrel 9mm maybe(got my bidenbux but have a lot of bills😕).

  2. No 1913 Rail = No Sale

    All Hellcats have a 1913 rail, no excuse for handgun not to offer it.
    At least the P365 accepts a 1913 adapter, but Sig should still offer a 1913 as well.

    Not buying a laser/light that is gun specific.

    • Well according to SIG a Pic rail is wider than the P365’s frame, so in the pursuit of making the skinniest pistol possible they claim to have foregone the use of a Pic rail. This is a very good excuse.

      That said, I’m not totally sure it holds water considering a Pic rail is 0.835″ at the widest point, which I don’t think (off the top of my head) is actually wider than the P365’s frame but it may be close. IIRC the P365 is 1.0″ across the controls and the polymer grip module itself is skinnier, but if it’s skinnier than 0.835″ it sure ain’t by much!

      • With respect, Sig is full of $hit. Sig chose a proprietary rail so they can rape people with their inferior laser/lights. I love my p365XL EDC, but Sigs optics suck and I resent having to spend money to add the bulk of a adapter.

  3. Thanks for the tip.
    What plug in are you using to see the coupon codes?

    The Viridian C5L is on all my handguns.
    And, it has a rechargeable battery.

  4. The title appears to be a bit misleading. The second to last line in the product release text is “Sign up here to be notified when these lasers are available for purchase.” That sentence alone makes me think of marketing research…is Viridian considering making them after receiving enough orders / queries or are they actually in production?

    Nothing quite like biting that juicy worm on the hook and finding out that it is an inedible silicone gummie.
