Holographic vs. reflex?

Postby vanmc1 on Fri Sep 22, 2006 6:41 am

What are the differences between holographic and reflex sights? I believe that some dealers are selling reflex's as holographics.

A holo sight does not require you to get your eye lined up behind the sight as precisely as a red dot, so you can get a holo onto your target quicker. Holo sights are also more durable than the typical red dot.

Reflex sights also show a muzzle side signature. Basically is glows and everyone and everything can see you coming from a mile away.

Holo's are the way to go
