No because I don't want to directly fund the R&D division of china's military.
I agree with you on principal, but the SCS doesn't need batteries or suppressor height sights; ergo the presentation is more traditional.It's almost cyber Monday, buy an RMR for 50 dollars more.

It has nothing to do with being elite anything. Holosun literally made their bones ripping off American patents and selling their products to American consumers to fund the Chinese military R&D. That is enough to make me go elsewhere. Cool that they made enough seed money and hired a few American consultants to tell them what consumers here would be into while whoring it out, hopefully they don't eventually get used against us on our soil.Not everything out of China is "junk". Nice that someone linked my thread baby. Holosun and streamlight most gun owners are happy with... All but the most elite operators who only roll Trijicon/Surefire
Does that really work?I agree with you on principal, but the SCS doesn't need batteries or suppressor height sights; ergo the presentation is more traditional.
I've yet to make the transition to PMOs, but I'd like to see a domestic manufacturer follow suit with those features.
I've had mine for about 3 months now. Carry daily and works fine. Shot two SC matches with it, and the green works great in the sun at all angles. When it is not on me, it is in the safe. Never had the sight not light up.
my g34 is in the dark safe for - well, since september 21st - now, the scs still lights up when i take it out, so, seems to work. no clue how long it will keep the light going, but so far it works.
According to HS it takes ~1 week to get a full charge, and lasts 20,000 hours. It would charge faster, but it’s rate limited since slow charging is better for batteries.my g34 is in the dark safe for - well, since september 21st - now, the scs still lights up when i take it out, so, seems to work. no clue how long it will keep the light going, but so far it works.
i kinda like its form factor. would be nice if they would make rmr mount compatible ones in the same low shape.
Good point.This SCS intrigues me. The super low profile of it, not needing suppressor height sights to co-witness is pretty cool. As for it being solar powered--I believe the logistics are there for this being real and usable. Think about it: A CR2032 is only 235mAh, and can last years in some red dots. You wouldn't even need half that if the battery could passively charge now and then, so the battery must be tiny inside one of these. Which makes sense on it being so low profile.
Where did you find it for that price? I ordered from Optics Planet for 12% off, so $308 plus tax.I just ordered mine, should be delivered tomorrow. This is my first red dot (well, green) for a pistol (G45 for EDC). I thought that Aaron Cowan from Sage Dynamics did a pretty solid review on it. I figured for my first one I didn't want to spend RMR type $$ because what if I don't like it or this dog has a hard time learning new tricks? I was able to get it just slightly over $300 on a Black Friday sale. Yes, I have issues with it being made in China, but I'll make up for it by buying something else made in the USA. I will let you know how I do with it.
Same, plus I had some points from the last time I bought something there.Where did you find it for that price? I ordered from Optics Planet for 12% off, so $308 plus tax.
Just checked, I did too. They must have gotten a fresh batch in.I got a ship notice today, due to arrive Monday.
