Holosun has released a new digital night vision rifle scope, something the company teasingly showed at the SHOT Show in January. The new Holosun DRS-NV (Digital Reflex Sight Night Vision Scope) has finally hit the market. Here’s what you need to know about it.
The DRS-NV, or Digital Reflex Sight-Night Vision, is a red dot sight and digital night vision sight in one housing. It combines Holosun’s proven red dot sight technology with a digital night vision set-up for one powerful, lightweight optic.
The Holosun DRS-NV has an LED Multi-reticle system with a selection of either a 2 MOA dot or a 65 MOA circle reticle, both digital. Additionally, the optic features eight daylight and four night vision brightness settings for better target acquisition, regardless of the lighting conditions. The OLED digital night vision sensor boasts a 1024×768 ultra-crisp resolution with a 1x, 2x, 4x, and 8x digital zoom, built-in video up to 60fps and still image capabilities, and onboard storage. All of that is powered by two rechargeable 18350 lithium batteries.
But don’t worry about the battery life too much. The DRS-NV has Shake Awake technology which automatically turns on the LED emitter when it detects motion and automatically powers down the optic when the host weapon is motionless for an extended amount of time. The two batteries have a life of up to six hours on a single charge, and the unit comes from Holosun with a 5V Type-C USB cable for charging on the go or downloading stored images and videos.
The sight features a 7075-T6 aluminum housing with a corrosion-resistant anodized finish for performance in even the harshest of conditions. The Holosun DRS-NV rifle scope comes from Holosun with a Mil-Spec Picatinny rail mount to quickly install on the host rifle, which is compatible with most tactical rifles with flat-top rails. Also, it has an IP67 waterproof rating.
The new scope has a price tag of just under $1,000.
