The black 512 HWS Holgraphic Sight is a holographic sight combining rapid, both-eyes-open target acquisition, with a sharp reticle suitable for precision work. Control buttons are positioned on the back (facing the shooter) of the unit, for ease of operation. The illuminated reticle is configured with a single 1 MOA aiming dot surrounded by a 65 MOA circle.

Designed for today's modern battlefield, the Model 512 HWS is submersible to a depth of 10', and is repeatable to 1 MOA after remounting. The rear window is a 3/16" thick shatterproof laminate with anti-glare and scratch resistant coatings, and the front lens is 1/8" solid glass. The sight is virtually parallax free at all distances, a mission-critical feature.

  • Front Window: 1/8" solid glass
  • Rear Window: 3/16" shatter-resistant laminate
  • Optical surfaces feature anti-glare lens coatings
  • Heads-Up Display: eliminates blind spots and constricted vision
  • Holography technology - instantly visible in any light, parallax free
  • Even if the window is obstructed or damaged, the HWS remains fully operational, provided a portion remains intact/visible. The entire reticle pattern will be seen on target, with no change in POI/POA.
  • Magnifier compatible: reticle will not be enlarged by optic's power
