Viridian X5L Gen 3

Green Laser + 500 Lumen white light in a pretty compact package...

It will be interesting to see what the build quality turns out to be. At least some of the other Viridian products have a bad rep for pretty much falling apart.

Awesome concept, but I feel like the battery pack will get nocked loose

I admit I am leery as well...

I am waiting for someone to do a light + green laser well, though.  Of course, there is this:

but I'm waiting for something a little more concealed carry friendly and, yes, a bit more affordable ;-)

I've been following the pl for a few years and love the idea, although I see they now have visible laser only, originally visible and ir laser and illuminates.

Plus how the laser is on top nearer the barrel is quite nice
