Rob Pincus started using Holosun sights in 2017. He then took them on the 2017 PDN Training Tour and loaned them to students. He was impressed with their durability, clarity, battery life, and value for money.
Now PDN is proud to have Holosun as a sponsor on the 2018 PDN Training Tour, and we look forward to working with Holosun even more closely in the future.
Holosun 503CU Elite Green Dot Sight
The Holosun 503CU Elite green dot sight is a circle and dot version that uses battery and/or solar power from the solar panel built into it. Rob prefers to rely on battery power, and this one has a 50,000-hour potential life with the dot only. If you use the dot and the circle, it varies. It has ten adjustment levels for visible light and two for night vision.
Holosun is a value brand, not a bargain brand. The 503CU Elite comes with two different mounting options. The flat mount works well on an AK, and the riser mount is better for an AR.
Rob has an AR pistol equipped with the 503CU Elite green dot sight with riser mount that puts the 503CU over the Viridian light and laser and allows Rob to use his back-up flip-up iron sights. Aiming the rifle with everything up, Rob can still see the circle and the dot of the Holosun very clearly.
It’s a 2 MOA dot with a 65 MOA circle around it. The iron sights are visible through the optic.
Advantages of the Green Dot Sight
On sights, green works better than red for a lot of people’s eyes, and now Holosun offers a green dot sight in various configurations and at a fair price. If you’re looking for an optic to add to your defensive gear for a patrol rifle, a defensive rifle, or even a hunting rifle, Holosun may be the right choice for you. It’s excellent for competition or plinking as well.
