Competed, tested and chosen by the U.S. Army as the enhancer for the M17/M18 pistol under the Pistol Aiming Laser (PAiL) program, subset of the Modular Handgun System (MHS), the LMD Pistol Enhancer has many advantages.

Optics and Controls:

  • Master off or preset for white light or IR Illuminator and laser, to avoid accidental discharge of white light
  • 8-degree cone of Light /Illumination, reflectors specially coated for maximum throw downrange
  • IR laser can be zeroed with a Leatherman tool or slotted screwdriver, no special tools required
  • Ambidextrous Tap on/Tap off controls

Form Factor and SWaP:

  • Designed and manufactured to specifically fit the frame of the M17/M18 pistols
  • Laser sits directly under the pistol’s bore for more hits on target at any range
  • Flat bottom with trigger guard to provide a stable shooting platform
  • Small, light, tough, and weighs only 2.6 ounces (including battery)


  • Runs on a single CR-123 battery
  • Battery can be changed without removal from the weapon, so zero is maintained with battery change
  • Battery hatch opens using common tools, including rim of cartridge or dog tag


  • Waterproof to 1 meter for 30 mins
  • Sapphire windows helps to prevent gunpowder residue buildup and promotes ease of cleaning
  • Holsters currently available (see Common Table of Allowances)
