New Handgun Option: The Modlite PL350 Pistol Light

Attention all lumen lackeys, flashlight fanatics, and touters of torches that proclaim performance—we have a brilliant bulletin for you. The folks over at Modlite Systems have released their new weapon-mounted light: The Modlite PL350 Pistol Light. The release of their weapon light is something that fans of Modlite have been coveting for some time. Thankfully for them, it is finally here, and initial responses indicate that it does not seem to disappoint. On top of the weapon light, Modlite has also introduced the “Modlite PL350 Holster” to complement the light.

The Modlite PL350 Pistol Light: Casting Light on the Subject

The specific light package that we are discussing today is the Modlite PLHv2-PL350 Light package. There are two more models, the PLH5K-PL350 & the OKW-PL350, that are coming out later with different Kelvin color temperatures and features. However, from here on out in this article, we will be referring to the PLHv2-PL350 as just the PL350.

The Modlite PL350 Pistol light comes with a switch and body assembly. In addition to that, the package also includes a 18350 rechargeable battery and a set of PHLSTER ARC Switch paddles. The 18350 battery allows the Modlite PL350 for roughly 35-40 minutes of continued usage.

Packages are available with and without a two-cell XTAR USB charger. The light is an “Out the front” battery change, allows you to quickly replace batteries without tools and without taking the light off the pistol.

“Couldn’t wait for the weekend, got to warm up the PL350. Initial thoughts are that the switching is great, very clicky, and it’s just so…much…light. Very cool. I’ve been wanting a new pistol light to come to market since we started having lowlight matches here locally and this fits the bill. Plus it takes the same batteries as my handheld, so that’s a plus.” – Video credit to @cannon762 on Instagram

Modlite PL350 holsters
“I didn’t officially make a post about it, mostly because I was on the road home from teaching, but he dropped out Skotos Holster for the @modlitesystems PL350 yesterday morning at 5am. The good news – they are in stock and ready to ship, yes colors too, with no wait times for these. The bad news.. we sold a bunch already in the last 24 hours and certain colors are already sold out. We hope to stock these moving forward as a few other products that are in high demand. Might even see some of these at dealers as well. Should have some OWB options stocked in a few days as well.” – Photo credit to @veilsolutions on Instagram
