Frequently Asked Questions
What is the benefit of a circle dot reticle?
The circle surrounding the dot gives you faster target acquisition in close quarters while the dot in the middle allows for precision at longer ranges.
Do I want an open or enclosed red dot?
Open sights allow for better vision and compact size but may let in dust. Enclosed sights protect the emitter but can obscure vision. Choose based on your intended use.
What battery life can I expect from Holosun sights?
It depends on the model and settings used, but you can expect anywhere from 20,000 hours to 50,000 hours from the latest generation Holosun sights.
Can Holosun sights get wet?
Most Holosun sights have an IP67 waterproof rating meaning they can get briefly submerged up to 1 meter deep. A few models are only splashproof.
Will I need tools to install a Holosun sight?
Some Holosun models like the HE530C allow tool-less installation. But others require a torx key which is always provided. Read specs of each sight before purchasing.
