Designed for the AR and AK platforms, the new micro reflex sights are created for a variety of applications to include hunting, competition and recreational shooting. The new optics fall under Holosun’s Elite series, featuring the company’s Green LED Emitter designed to provide high visibility in all conditions. In addition, the Elite series provides Holosun’s Shake Awake Tech which switches the optic into “sleep mode” after a pre-determined amount of time. The unit automatically “wakes up” a after movement.
