NEW FOR 2020 - HOLOSUN has added a new function to certain models. These model numbers end in "X2" and are due to arrive as indicated (per Holosun).
★ "Lock Mode" - While locked, inadvertent button presses that could conceivably happen while the weapon is holstered or being handled will not cause changes to the users preferred settings. When Lock mode is off, the unit will operate normally in "Manual Mode", which means that the user will have full control over the reticle brightness by pressing the "+" and "-" buttons or "Automatic Mode", which means that the solar panel on top of the optic will act as a light sensor and automatically regulate reticle intensity for the user. Additionally, the solar panel (on solar models) will augment or entirely replace battery power (depending on the ambient light) to extend battery life. Solar units will still be able to operate without a battery if there is enough light. The buttons have been moved back to the base of the housing. This is a tried and true design feature that has been proven on prior models. The buttons will also be protected by the housing to prevent accidental toggling of the buttons.
