Are green laser sights or red laser sights better for US Special Operations? | We Are The Mighty

Must Read

The family of SOCOM Low Visibility and Concealable Pistols are intended to give operators the ability to protect themselves in situations where plain sight carry is not an option. Systems such as the Glock 19 were purchased in large quantities by groups like MARSOC, DEVGRU, and USASOC. Laser sights have been added to the weapon systems to give the user more accuracy in low-light scenarios. When choosing which color sight operators have plenty of options. Red laser, green laser, infrared, or a combination of the visible and non-visible. There is a misconception from media representations that special operators use green lasers visible to night-vision goggles during nighttime operations. These are actually infrared lasers which the human eye cannot see. Green lasers are best used during very bright conditions where they are seen more easily than their red counterparts. While red may allow for better performance during lower light operations the universality of green makes it a popular choice.
