If you were all paying close attention to SHOT Show 2022, you’ll remember that Holosun introduced the SCS or Solar Charging Sight which uses the sun to power its diode and keep its internal 2-year capacity battery topped off. While red versions were initially proposed during SHOT Show 2022, Holosun just announced today that they would only be releasing the sight in a green variant at this time dubbed the SCS-MOS-GR. More details are below but if you’re looking for a good primer on this topic, go ahead and check out the link below to see TFB writer Nick C’s coverage of the SCS from SHOT Show 2022.

Holosun Introduces the new SCS-MOS-GR Solar Charging Sight
HOLOSUN is excited to announce the innovative SCS-MOS-GR with our Super Green LED technology. The SCS-MOS-GR features indefinite power when light is applied to the solar cell, and the ability to maintain an internal reserve of two years of battery life for low or no light conditions. Holosun’s Auto Mode programming coupled with multiple photo sensors adjust the reticle intensity to match any lighting scenario.
SCS also features a low battery indicator when powered on, a high brightness override mode for special scenarios, and the Holosun Multi-reticle System. With no need to replace batteries and Holosun’s Solar /Auto Mode innovations, the SCS-MOS-GR is the pinnacle of pistol optic technology.
Due to the stringent requirements of the SCS, the red LED does not meet the battery life performance standards we have set with the SCS green. Therefore, we have decided to release the green model only rather than release two models with substantially different performance. Be sure to follow @holosunoptics for more details on the upcoming SCS-MOS-GR.
According to the product listing on Kenzie’s Optics, the red dot version of the SCS-MOS is still listed on the site but is marked as “out of stock” with an “Indefinite Release Date”. The SCS-MOS-GR will still feature the same 2-MOA center dot paired with the 32-MOA outer dot. The SCS-MOS-GR should be released sometime in early to mid-May according to the product page. The new green dot sight will feature a Grade 5 titanium housing, parallax-free viewing window, self-adjusting brightness controls, and per its namesake will feature direct mounting capability with serrations to match the Glock MOS system.
I’d like to hear your thoughts on this new sight. Is this one you’d pick up for your Glock MOS pistol or do you think that having an internal self-charging battery is asking too much for a pistol-mounted red dot?
