Holosun 508T Circle Dot Sight
Holosun‘s introduction and launch of this product is a welcome change (they haven’t been making reflex red dot sights with windows up to this point).
HS508T is made entirely of titanium which makes it robust. It is also very compact because of its small size. The Shake Awake function works really well – the optic is put out of “sleep mode” without delay at the slightest movement. It is equipped with a new edition of turrets with 0.5 MOA per click and is IPX8 certified, meaning that it is protected against continual water submersion. It also has a solar cell on the housing below the ocular lens, which allows it to go into Solar mode. Once in Solar mode, the cell powers the reticle but it can still be powered by the battery at the same time if there is not enough light.
HS508T is well made and offers a range of features. Shake Awake’s performance is great and works without the slightest delay. We found the solar cell placement on the housing below the ocular lens a bit peculiar – HS508T could be made without it.
