Viridian® Launches HS1™ IR Lasers Providing Increased Night Vision Accuracy

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – September 9, 2021 –Viridian Weapon Technologies is pleased to announce that its game-changing hand stop laser, the HS1, is now available with an infrared beam. The dynamic new HS1 IR is the first infrared laser developed by Viridian. When combined with the ergonomics of a hand stop, the HS1 IR adds a new layer of functionality and an ergonomic stability to the AR 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.”

Viridian’s HS1 is 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. The HS1 provides an intuitive control surface and instantaneous targeting guidance.

Like the Red and Green versions of the HS1, this new IR option will connect to forends with M-Lok® and picatinny mounts. The HS1’s IR beam adjusts for windage and elevation. The new HS1 IR will be available through retailers, or on Viridian’s website:
