Get better accuracy, faster, with a quality red dot optic.
Iron sights work well enough, but they require perfect sight alignment to provide good accuracy. A red dot, 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 red dot sights are perfect for fast running n' gunning with your favorite rifle.
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.
A red dot is a type of LED optic. Compared to holographic sights, red dots provide similar reticles and sight pictures. But red dot sights are technically more reliable: They require fewer panes of glass, with a single LED projecting the aiming reticle back toward the shooter (holographic sights use laser diodes and multiple panes of glass, adding weight and complexity.
The LED-powered reticle provides parallax-free targeting. That means no matter where your head or eye rests behind the optic, your point of impact will match your reticle's point of aim. We've partnered with Sig Sauer, Bushnell, and Holosun to provide a catalog of quality, affordable, rugged red dot optics for your custom AR or rifle.
