Christmas may have come 3 weeks late this year, but Ho Ho Holosun! It’s here.
The 2023 Holosun product catalog is here, and we have a sneak peak for you!
Holosun, started in 2013, has been one of the front runners in the optic and laser/IR sector of the firearms industry. This company has risen to the top, especially when it comes to red dot sights. 2023, which happens to be their 10th year in business, looks like it will be no different.
We’ll start with the Solar Charging Sights, move to Open Pistol Sights, and move to the REALLY exciting new products after.
SCRS (Solar Charging Rifle Sight)
The SCRS is the Mighty Mouse when it comes to rifle sights. It features a 20,000-hour+ power reserve; that’s more than 2 years! The internal battery is solar charged, which is quickly becoming the standard in the industry.
The window size is 22mm diameter, and the overall size of the optic is impressive. It’s compact, fits the Holosun 509 footprint and includes a 1.63″ mount. With a travel range +/- 50 MOA, this is a versatile sight. Users can choose between Auto or Manual mode for dot intensity adjustment. It’s parallax free, has unlimited eye relief and their MRS (Multiple Reticle System) allows you to choose between different reticles:
- 65 MOA Circle & 2 MOA Dot
- 2 MOA Dot
- 65 MOA Circle
Standard 1 MOA windage and elevation adjustment per click allow for easy adjustment and the 8 daylight/4 night vision compatible settings make this product truly impressive.
2. 507 Comp
When it comes to versatility on open pistol sights, the 507 Comp takes the cake. The main feature on this product is the CRS (Competition Reticle System) which is available in either red or green LED. It offers 4 components:
- Precision 2MOA Dot
- 8 MOA Circle
- 20 MOA Circle
- 32 MOA Circle
These can be used in multiple combinations to fit your preferences. With an up to 50,000 hour battery life and Holosun’s Shake Awake technology are both great features. Shake Awake even has last setting recall, so no fumbling with your settings when you need to quickly manipulate your handgun. It has 6 daylight/2 night vision settings, and is parallax free with unlimited eye relief.
3. DRS Night Vision
The DRS (Digital Reflex Sight-Night Vision) combines Holosun’s red dot sight technoloy with digital night vision capability. Using an LED MRS, users can choose between 65 MOA Circle and/or 2 MOA Dot. Sensors for night vision go up to 60 FPS, which is pretty impressive given the size of this. The onboard storage and USB-C connector let you digitally record and download, which makes for some cool videos!

It looks like there will be 2 models in this line- one with an integrated illuminator and one without an integrated illuminator. Battery life is 2.5-5 hours depending on which model you choose, but ether one is guaranteed to impress. The 8 daylight/4 night vision settings and 1.25″ x 0.98″ window make this a great option if you’re looking for a compact ‘do everything’ optic.
4. DRS Thermal
In addition to offering the night vision DRS, Holosun offers a thermal option with 3 models available. The standard model offers 2 reticle options with 1024×768 resolution at 50 FPS. As you move up in the models, you’ll have up to 5 thermal image modes and can increase thermal sensor resolution by 33%. The DRS Thermal uses the same MRS as the night vision model, as well as daylight/night vision settings and window size. Battery life on these ranges from 10-20 hours depending on model, and will be a popular option for coyote and pig hunters.
We can’t wait to handle these at SHOT Show. Do you have any questions you’d like us to ask Holosun when we visit them? Comment below!
Keep an eye on our blog this month, as we’ll be posting updates with videos and photos you don’t want to miss!
That SCRS has got my attention! Wanna see that bad boy in action!
I’m hyped for the thermal! Would love to know the starting point! Also do they have optical zoom? Recording? Also is it sensitive enough to see people foot prints? Guess I’ll be holding off on the sightmark purchase. I better get a call when they hit the shop!
