Holosun, a leader in weapons optics, has released its latest with the 507COMP-RD red dot. Holosun specifically designed this latest red dot optic with the competitive shooter in mind with a larger optic window and its Shake Awake technology.
The Holosun 507COMP handgun sight has an impressive 1.1”x 0.87” objective lens, or in other terms, a rifle-sized optic window on a handgun red dot. Competitive shooters, and regular shooters, have been turning more towards the larger window that lends to a larger view of sight. The large window is housed inside a 7075 T6 Aluminum housing with the industry standard footprint and has been anodized for the durability that folks expect with Holosun products.
Not only that, but the new 507COMP has Holosun’s new Competition Reticle System (C.R.S.), which is an enhanced multi-reticle system that has four components. These components include a precision 2MOA dot, an 8MOA circle, a 20MOA circle, and a 32MOA circle with combinations to fit whatever the shooter may need. The 507COMP is available with either a red CRS or a green CRS version to fit the shooter’s preference.
The optic is parallax free and has unlimited eye relief. Like most other Holosun optics, the 507COMP has six different daylight brightness settings along with two night vision settings to match most any conditions the shooter may encounter. Additionally, the 507COMP has a 1MOA adjustment with each audible click and windage and elevation adjustments to ±30 MOA.
The Holosun 507COMP runs on one CR1632 battery that is accessible via the side panel – no need to remove the optic from the handgun to change the battery. The battery allows for a stellar 50,000-hour battery life and thanks to the Shake Awake technology of the sight, that will last the shooter a long time. All those features are in a small enough package, weighing just around 1.7 ounces.
The optic is seen as redefining the competitive shooting experience and has already been endorsed by some professional shooters. The Holosun 507COMP is said to be hitting the market very soon (think next week) so if this optic strikes your fancy, I wouldn’t wait around too much longer to snatch one up. The red CRS Holosun 507COMP has an MSRP of $435 while the green CRS Holosun 507COMP has an MSRP of $470.
