New from Holosun is a flagship pistol optic, the HE509T. Built with shooters in mind, it has an ultra-durable enclosed design, Multi-reticle System and Solar Failsafe technologies. The HE509T snaps into action when the shooter is ready for action, thanks to the built-in Shake Awake technology that activates the sight when moved.

Holosun has as a history of incorporating industry-leading battery efficiency technology into every sight it offers. The HE509T is no exception, with the life of its CR1632 battery lasting up to 50,000 hours using the 2-MOA dot only. The Solar Failsafe extends that battery life even further, ensuring shooters will always have a powered, active and effective sight when they need it, and a convenient, side-mounted battery tray makes for easy battery replacement. 

The HE509T is enclosed in a titanium housing that protects the super LED by keeping the elements and debris at bay. The HE509T features IP67 ingress protection for a dust-proof, water-resistant sight. Weighing just 1.72 ounces, the HE509T is a compact, lightweight design which feels like a natural extension of your pistol.

The HE509T allows the shooter to choose a reticle option that best suits their needs. Holosun's Multi-reticle System provides a 2-MOA dot only or a 32-MOA/2-MOA Circle-Dot option. The 509T features 12 brightness settings for performance in all lighting conditions including 2 night-vision compatible settings. The HE509T is parallax-free with unlimited eye relief and provides a clear sight picture thanks to multi-coated optical glass lenses.
