Holosun, a fairly young company, is a producer of mostly red dot sights. Even though their products are manufactured in China, Holosun breaks the common misconception that all Chinese products are of lower quality by offering affordable optics while retaining the incredible build quality and outstanding optical performance. You can choose from a wide array of different models in each series.
Their red dot sights boast an amazing battery life of 50.000 hours. The ones with the letter ‘C’ can work on solar power thanks to the cell, installed on the housing. The user can choose for the sight to be powered by both the solar cell and the battery or by solar cell only.
All Holosun sights are equipped with a 2 MOA dot reticle. Models with 5 as the first digit in their name give users the possibility to switch between a regular dot and a circle dot reticle. The Elite models feature green illumination or a titanium housing – some offer both these features. Holosun has been cooperating with Primary Arms lately – one of the products that they designed together is HS503G-ACSS which features Primary Arms’ famous ACSS CQB reticle.
Holosun Infiniti is a special red dot sight series where all the models, at first glance, look a lot like a prism scope. All models from this series are equipped with a quick release (QR) Picatinny mount and have the battery located in the same position. You can find them in four model families: 401, 402, 501 and 502.
Red dot sights from the Paralow series are very similar to the red dot sights made by the famous Swedish red dot sight manufacturer. These are small tube sights which feature a low mount for the Picatinny platform and a riser for the AR platform. You can find them in three model families: 403, 503 and 515.
Red dot sights in the Reflex series have a compact design and are lower in mass as they are not closed from both sides like the models from other Holosun series (with the exception of HS512T and HS510C). That is why some of the models can be mounted on a handgun. These sights are commonly referred to as open reflex sights.
Models of red dot sights from the Holosun Tube series are easily recognizable by their extended ring mount for the Picatinny rail. They come with removable objective and eyepiece flip up covers. You can find only three models in this series: 406A, 406C and 506. All devices are water resistant and parallax free.
