U.S.A.-( The most popular pistol models sold today are sub-compact, “pocket pistol” designs, leaving little room for accessories and optical sights. Additionally, a streamlined concealed carry approach holsters the pistol safely out of sight, while still enabling the armed citizen to draw quickly if needed. The lack of an electronic sight that is small, rugged, reliable and reasonably priced has meant that red dots are not often a consideration for concealed carry permit holders… until now.

Holosun’s new HS407K and HS507K micro sights solve these problems while allowing concealed carry pistol owners to couple their firearm with a highly effective sighting solution. While these units are compact, each offers a serious suite of features that rivals any full-sized sight on the market.

The HS407K and HS507K offer the same incredible 50,000 hours of battery life capability found on larger Holosun sights. Both units also feature our Shake Awake™ technology. This auto on/auto-off feature allows the optic to remain ready when you need it and conserve battery life when you don’t.

The HS407K uses a simple and accurate 6 MOA dot reticle. The HS507K uses our Multi-Reticle System (M.R.S.™) allowing flexibility to choose from a 2 MOA dot only, a 32 MOA ring only, or the combination of both! Since all 3 reticle options are projected from the same LED, no re-zeroing is needed when cycling between choices. This gives the optic great adaptability for various conditions and preferences.

Holosun is pushing the limits of open-reflex sights through durable construction practices and advanced sight technology. The HS407K and HS507K micro sights are ideal for concealed carry pistols but also serve shooters desiring a lightweight, compact option for everyday needs.


  • HS407K (6MOA Dot), HS507K (2MOA Dot and 32MOA Ring M.R.S.)
  • Up to 50,000 Hours Battery Life (Setting 6)
  • IP67 Waterproof Rated
  • 12 Brightness Setting: 10 DL & 2 NV Compatible

Since it isn’t provided in the article, it appears Holosun uses the same mounting configuration as the RMR. Just fyi

How about just learning to shoot with open sights (you know, basic training) and not adding “electronics” and other add-ons (lasers, flashlights) which make the gun even more difficult to conceal? If you like them, fine, go for it, but for pity sake, don’t substitute and depend on “gizmos” to compensate for or substitute for learning basic shooting skills.

I don’t mean to be snarky, JPM, but we used to say the same thing about automatic transmissions and digital multimeters.

I found that it was easier to teach my students how to operate and read a digital meter, then introduce the old fashioned analog one.

Listont: But the other side of that coin is this; What you said is true, it is EASIER to teach the use of something that is easier. Well, duh! But that does NOT mean that it is better for the student to do so, only that it becomes easier for the instructor. Often what is easier to teach is worse for the student. Instruct students in driving with an automatic transmission, and most will never learn to drive a stick.Teach welding with a MIG gun, and most will never learn to use a stick welder. Use digital clocks and most… Read more »

No matter how much training that you have, sooner or later aging eyes will make iron sights difficult to focus on. Even Rob Leatham prefers “electronics”. I think that he has learned basic shooting skills.

Note carefully what Mr. Leatham says in your link:
“This gun is a 9mm originally built to my specs for IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) ESP (Enhanced Service Pistol) division. The second (newer) slide with the optical sight is legal in IDPA CO (Carry Optics) division.”
Built to be a competition gun, NOT for daily carry. There is a very large difference in the intended use there… And this article is titled: “CARRY a subcompact… etc”, so I think the intended use here is clearly NOT for competition.
