Holosun has announced that their DRS-NV optic will be shipping to dealers by the end of January.

Holosun has grown to be an industry leader in optics in recent years. Many of their red dots and reflex sights have become some of the most popular options on the market, following on from more humble reputational beginnings. They have also dabbled in the night vision game, with their product catalog including a selection of infrared laser and illuminator units. Around SHOT Show 2023, Holosun revealed that they were working on getting deeper into the low-light shooting market by virtue of a pair of upcoming digital prototype optics, one thermal and one standard NV. Now a year later, the night vision model is ready and heading to market soon. In a January 11th Instagram post, Holosun announced that their DRS-NV is slated to ship to dealers within a matter of weeks. Check out the text of their post copied below for details.

    If there is anything to complain about then it's that these things are chinese made.
    Which is good for pricing here, not good to fund factories there. We should be able to produce stuff like Holosun and other fusion devices like the iRay Jerry here in the US. But we don't. Heck, even Photonis is european. And if Photonis, L3Harris, Motorolla and all of the other government suppliers weren't such a**holes, maybe we could have a good domestic production and civilian supply sources. But noooooo, instead of being competitive through the economy of scale they'd rather sell less for more to the gov and shun civilians.

      @Max Müller This is where I remind you that the last re-up of the USMC TA31 RCO ACOG contract in 2017 came out to $291 per unit.

      They could've cut the consumer price in half to ~$600 and still had margins that would make the pharmaceutical industry proud.
