Holosun 503R is a micro red dot sight of the Paralow series.
The letter 'R' indicates that the red -dot features a rotary switch for setting the illumination intensity instead of the two buttons found on most Holosun red dot sights. The switch is located next to the battery compartment, on the side of the red- dot. With the help of the switch, you can also switch between a 2 MOA dot and a MOA circle micro dot (multi reticle system).
Even though this red -dot doesn’t have ‘U’ in its name, red - dot comes with shrouded turrets.
"RD" indicates that this MOA red dot sight features red illumination.
"GD" indicates that this micro gold dot sight features gold illumination (gold dot Holosun).

Paralow is one of the red dot sight series made by Holosun. On the outside, these small tube sights are very familiar to the Micro red dot sights made by the famous Swedish red dot sight manufacturing company. The illumination is powered by a CR2032 battery. The click value for the elevation and windage adjustments on micro red dot is 0.5 MOA. These durable red dot sights feature a single-piece housing made out of aluminum. Altogether, there are 12 illumination intensity levels to choose from, 2 of which are NVD compatible. The battery life is 50.000 hours.
The 503 micro optical sight is one of the model families in the Paralow series.
Reticle system on red dot sight
The first number '5' in its name suggests that the user can switch between a 2 MOA dot and a 2 MOA dot surrounded by a 65 MOA circle - circle dot reticle. The second number '0' implies that the red dot optic comes with standard accessories (without honeycomb filter, quick-release mount and flip-up lens covers).
These small tube sights come with a high mount for an AR platform (lower 1/3 co-witness) and a low mount for other mounting purposes (such as mounting on a rifle). All red dot optic models in the Paralow series except the ones with the letter 'A' in their name have the same mounting platform as the Aimpoint Micro devices ( Aimpoint micro mounting ).
