Holosun AEMS red-dot sight for guns black metal plastic construction

Intended for use with long guns, the new Advanced Enclosed Micro Sight (AEMS) is a closed-emitter reflex sight from Holosun that takes advantage of many of the company’s premium features.

Although it has a side-mounted compartment for one CR2032 battery, the AEMS also employs a solar-powered backup system, giving the unit a run time of up to 50,000 hours from a single battery. The optic, which features a black-anodized 7075 aluminum housing, has three selectable reticle options: a 2-m.o.a. dot enclosed within a 65-m.o.a. circle, only the dot or only the circle—and both red- and green-LED versions are offered. An onboard sensor automatically activates the AEMS when it is moved, and the unit returns to the most recently used brightness setting.

The market price for red-dot units is (red) and $505 for the brighter green-dot units. For more information, please visit
