Holosun SCS for M&P 2.0
Holosun is now shipping its newest SCS (Solar Charging Sight) the SCS-MP2-GR variant to work in conjunction with the popular Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 full size and compact handgun models for pistols chambered either in 9mm or .40 S&W. Unlike many slide-mounted electronic red dot sights, the Holosun SCS mounts directly to the slide of the handgun without the use of any adapter plates. The SCS uses Holosun’s solar charging system, recharging the optic in bright light, and the the dot will get dimmer or brighter depending on the ambient light to save power and provide an optimal aiming point.
This duty-grade pistol dot optic is only currently available with a green reticle. Like other Holosun products, the SCS-MP2 uses a multiple-reticle system to display a 32-MOA circle, a 2-MOA dot or both together. To help shooters see more clearly, the optic has undergone an increase in surface area compared to past models with a new 0.77-inch by 0.58-inch viewing window. The SCS-MP2 uses external light sources to charge its internal battery that has a 20,000-hour power reserve.

• Direct mount to Smith & Wesson M&P-M2.0 series full size and compact handguns
