Are you talking about a Magicshine 900 XML. If so, the newer P7 magicshine has an indicator of Green, blue, yellow, red but it still a P7 unless you bought a Magicshine that has the XML. The two way to tell is to look very close at the LED. The MS P7 will have 4 led inside the glass while the XML is single. The overall size of the P7 emitter is larger than a XML.
The second way of telling is the beamshot. At 50ft out, the MS XML will still retain a tight spot while the P7 MS is mostly disburse.
