Holosun Military Grade

I see that Holosun is calling some of their optics" Military Grade" and I was wondering if they had a DOD contract. does anyone know?

I know few happy Holosun customers. They seem to be well made for what you pay.
Don't know anything on DOD? Might be a marketing thing?

Hmm..."Military Grade." Shorthand for "Made By The Lowest Bidder, Issued To Folks Who Have To Use What They Are Issued Unless They Want To Pay Their Own Money For A Better Product."

I'm having flashbacks now to an old thread from years ago about boots.

I was watching a streaming video from John McPhee (aka, Shrek, aka Sheriff of Baghdad, former Unit guy), and he's very high on Holosun. He likes EOtech, but commented that Holosun for the money, is money. If I recall, he said that he has a few that have lasted him for about 5 or 6 years of fairly hard use.

I was going to try one out a couple months ago, but ended up grabbing a Sig Romeo instead; simply because it was a damn good deal.

If you are running irons with an absolute co-witness on a range gun, use whatever you like or want to pay for. Holosun and Lucid both make decent red dots at a good price. I've heard mixed reviews on the Sig red dots. EOtech's issues are well-documented and well-known. Anyone that still wants to use an EOTech, good for them.

If you are a LEO, and you are using an EOTech on a work gun...that's a civil lawsuit nightmare waiting for you.

For a work gun, use an Aimpoint.

Sig optics are from China supposedly. That's what a disgruntled SIG employee was telling me.
