Tiny Optics for Tiny Guns | Holosun Releases Red Dot Sights for Pocket-Pistols
Was there ever a day you thought you’d see a sub-compact pistol with optics on it? Well, if not, that day is here. Often, people purchase sub-compact because they’re light and easy to conceal. They’re also more comfortable than lugging around a full-size 1911. Unfortunately, you rarely see a compact red dot sight for a sub-compact pistol like you would with that full-size pistol.
Simply put, there’s just not enough room to add accessories — Which might be why, until now, there’s been a lack of electronic/red dot sights available for these smaller guns.
Holosun Red Dot Sights | HS40K7, HS507K X2
Holosun Technologies claims they’ve fixed that problem, offering two electronic sights—the HS407K and HS507K X2—that are small, rugged, reliable, and reasonably priced (according to them).
We’re also told, while these guys are small, the HS407K and HS507K X2 rival any full-sized sight on the market—yes, they used the word ANY.
- 50,000 hours of battery life—a capability found on larger Holosun sights
- Shake Awake™ technology—auto on/auto-remains ready when you need it, conserve battery life when you don’t
- HS407K—6 MOA dot reticle
- HS507K X2— Multi-Reticle System (M.R.S.™)—choose between a 2 MOA dot only, a 32 MOA ring only, or the combination of both
- No re-zeroing is needed when cycling between choices since all 3 reticle options are projected from the same LED
- Multi-layered reflective glass on both systems

She’s an Air Force Security Forces veteran and former dog-handler-turned-journalist (like, real journalist, with an advanced degree and previous internships at big publications and everything). As you might expect from someone who works with us, she’s a bit of a smartass, a dedicated student of the hoplological arts (and the recent recipient of a Masters Degree in Psychology!), an ardent traveler, and more than a bit of a foodie. Ashley is a dangerous girl, particularly if your first name is Channel, Flathead, or Blue — Bunch has kilt and eaten many an insolent catfish. She’d rather be camping and fishing than just camping, just camping rather than just hiking, and just hiking rather than sitting at home. If she is sitting at home, however, there’s likely a big damn jar of sweet tea and a whole pile of books somewhere nearby.
