If you want to get on-target faster, a holographic sight can be an excellent asset. They increase accuracy and reduce the amount of time it takes to aim and fire your weapon.
They also provide more reticle options than a red dot sight – like a variety of crosshairs or dot configurations – so if you have a strong preference for a specific reticle a holographic sight will probably be your best choice.
While quality holographic sights can help you track targets within a range of around 300 yards, they tend to be used for close-quarter situations. They provide a single focal plane by superimposing the reticule over the target – eliminating the need to decipher the reticle from the target – drastically improving target acquisition speed.
To find the best holographic sight we had a combat shooting expert spend over 10 hours reviewing more than 25 holographic sight options – both through online reviews and via his experience with different models and manufacturers. Our recommendations are listed below.
