Red Dot Sights
Guarantee your point of aim with a quality red dot sight.
Iron sights work well enough, but they require perfect sight picture to provide good accuracy. A quality red dot unit from Sig or Holosun, however, provides incredibly simple aim that doesn't even require a consistent sight picture from one trigger pull to the next. These ultra-compact, rugged micro red dot sights are perfect for fast running n' gunning with your favorite AR or pistol.
Holosun and Sig Sauer Red Dot Reflex Sights
Simply put, Holosun and Sig Sauer provide the most reliable, durable, compact, easy-to-use, and affordable red dot sights on the market. Costing a fraction of a holographic or prism red dot, these units provide the same benefits and durability, minus the high cost and larger profile. Holosun's units boast total waterproofing with a 100% reliable solar backup in case your dot ever dies on battery power. Sig's units are constructed for battlefield conditions and provide perfect aim without breaking the bank.
"What is a reflex sight?"
A reflex sight is a type of red dot, just like a holographic sight. Except reflex sights are technically more reliable - they only use a single pane of glass and a single laser beam projected back toward the shooter. This provides parallax-free targeting: No matter where your head or eye rests behind the gun, your point of impact will match your point of aim. Holographic sights use prisms and mirrors, increasing costs and weight without providing any major advantage over a reflex sight. That's why we stick with Sig's and Holosun's reflex units.
