Holosun Paralow HS515C & Red Dot Tech
These days almost everyone who has ever handled a firearm knows what a red rot sight is and can quickly learn how to use one. Because they are so intuitive to use, all you have to do is place the red dot on the target you want to hit. Almost everyone knows what a scope is as well, but not all people can learn how to use one as quickly as they can a red dot. For this reason and perhaps gaming may explain the popularity of red dot sights. Thankfully, there are plenty of great choices on the market today. Some are better than others with more features and better tech, but generally they all serve the purpose of fast target acquisition pretty well.
The Paralow HS515C is a relatively new offering from Holosun. They’ve somehow managed to fit a lot of features into a small package. It should make some of the big names in optics take notice of this relative new comer. The people at Holosun have definitely done their homework and are putting out some truly impressive sights. Their technology rivals and even best some of the big names in the business and at half the cost.
The “Cadillac” of their micro red dot line comes with all of the features you could ask for and then some:
- Quick Detach mount that is easily adapted to high or low mounting positions. AR and AK friendly right out of the box.
- Flip up lens covers
- Kill Flash
- 2 MOA Dot with 65 MOA ring
- 20,000 Hour battery life
- Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation Coating (5x harder than standard annodization)
- Water proof to 1m
- Solar power operation mode
- Passive reticle brightness
- NV Compatible
Great price and value. Impressive technology. Extreme battery life.
Field of view is a bit small. Battery tray can be a bt difficult to install.
