Occluded shooting is a method of target acquisition practiced mostly among sport shooters, but was developed much earlier for the same purpose – rapid target acquisition while maintaining target-focused rather than dot or sight-focused. A big problem that a lot of shooters, even seasoned ones have when switching from shooting irons to red dots is that it is all too easy to get sucked into the dot and become entirely focused on that rather than on your target. This is where occluded shooting comes in and why Strike Industries has bothered to give you an option rather than tape to slap onto your red dot to practice – the Strike Optic Cover for the Holosun 407/507 and Trijicon SRO.

Better than Tape? Strike Industries New Strike Optic Cover for Red Dots

The Strike Optic Cover for Holosun 407C/507C X2 is a sophisticated and resilient accessory designed to enhance your firearm’s functionality and durability. Crafted from robust TPU and polycarbonate, it offers superior protection for your optic from bullet casings and potential scratches, while ensuring safeguarding against wear and tear.

The intuitive back cut is meticulously designed to be compatible with most rear iron sights on the market. Even under heavy recoil, the firm fit of the cover is undisturbed. The cover also promotes quick installation and removal as needed, making it highly user-friendly. Easy access to control buttons adds to the overall operational convenience.

Take your training on the range to the next level with the integrated lens cover designed to enhance your use of a red dot sight, enabling users to practice Occluded Dot Training. Occluded shooting is a very helpful exercise to help those who may have been taught to shoot with only one eye open to use both instead. This technique (often used by competition shooters) acclimates one’s vision when using pistol optics by forcing the non-dominant eye to see your target while the dominant eye sees the dot when the lens is covered. Your brain will merge these two images and provide a clear picture, allowing for faster target acquistion and engagement.

If you’re new to pistol red dots, and want to become proficient with them fast, this product will be immensely helpful to you. The Strike Optic Cover perfectly blends protection and performance, making it an indispensable addition to your firearm.

The Strike Optic Cover comes with a removable front lens cover that allows you to not just shoot occluded, but also with the red dot’s window unobstructed. The new Strike Optic Cover for the Holosun 407/507 and Trijicon SRO are being sold in either Black or FDE and are $24.95 per unit. While there is a much wider variety of popular competition red dots out there, for now, Strike only has covers for the SRO and 407/507. For more info visit
