Holosun, the company well known for its durable electronic red dot and holographic sights for pistols and long guns is now releasing the first members of its new line of duty grade tactical LED lights, the P.ID family. The name of this new line of tactical lights is an abbreviation of “positive identification.” Currently there are four different items included in this lineup.

  • The standard P.ID is a tactical handgun light that throws a 1000 lumen (23,000 candela on high mode) white LED light that allows shooters to clearly see anything in front of their muzzles in any low light conditions. It is Picatinny compatible and will mount to any Picatinny rail surface including that of most handgun’s accessory rails. MSRP is $135.
  • The P.ID HC is a high candela compact white LED light with 42,000 candela and 800 lumens. MSRP is $199.
  • The P.ID Plus is a high power white light unit with a visible green laser. The P.ID plus is designed to either use the white LED beam or the green laser independently or simultaneously. MSRP is $199.
  • The P.ID Dual not only has a bright and high powered white light LED beam and a visible green laser, but it also has an infrared (IR) laser for used with night vision equipment as well. This unit has different settings, like the P.ID Plus with the addition of the IR-only mode. MSRP is $282

The housings of these new pistol lights are made from durable 7075 anodized aluminum. The P.ID tactical light family is fueled by18350 rechargeable batteries and users can recharge each unit with the included magnetic USB cable. One useful aspect about these new P.ID tactical lights is that they can be charged with this magnetic cable without having to remove the 18350 battery from its compartment.
