The sight is made out of aluminum and it’s a reflex sight. Meaning you get unlimited eye relief and you can shoot through the sight from any angle you could want to. There is no physical defects on the sight as the anodization is on point.
The lens of the sight is fully multi-coated as well. What makes the lens even better is the technology Leupold includes in their sights. Its’ called twilight light management system. In this sight, they call it the Leupold twilight red dot management system. What it does is, it makes the red dot brighter in low-light condition and makes it perform way better than any red dot in this price-range has to offer.

2. HOLOSUN HE509T 2 MOA Red Dot Sight
HE509T looks like a holographic sight, we are well aware of that. But this sight comes with a 2MOA red dot reticle. Instead of going for traditional aluminum to make the sight. Holosun used something different on this sight.
Don’t worry, it’s still not polymer. But it’s made out of titanium. A lightweight, premium and durable material that you don’t often see in a sight because of how crazy expensive the material is. Holosun managed to make a sight that doesn’t cots 600$ and still offer titanium rugged construction. The sight is not even that old. The 2MOA red dot reticle is illuminated.
You can see the reticle clearly in low-lighting condition as well. The best part about this illumination is, you got 2 adjustable level for night time as well. Almost all Holosun sight packs this feature and we can’t recommend this feature enough.
It’s a lifesaver for folks that are using the sight on a small gun like Glock MOS. You can use this sight as canted sight on rifle as well. That’s totally doable. And you get the idea what it could in the night with a rifle.

Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying
Glock isn’t like our traditional pistols. It’s very picky about sights and often sight fails due to how a Glock operates. Finding the best sight for Glock can be a handy task. Don’t worry, you can make it quite easier if you follow a couple of steps.
Glock is a lightweight gun. The weight is fairly balanced. However, you don’t want the gun to be heavy towards the back. It will make you miss shots due to the recoil balance. If you don’t want that to happen, make sure to take a sight that is lightweight in general.
This includes both build quality and lens quality. Make sure to take a durable sight with good lens. Good lens goes a long way. Just like you are picky about what lenses to pickup for your glasses, be picky about what lenses the sight has to offer. That will help you choose the best one for you with ease.
Optics are small items. We don’t want to visit to the doctor everyday to get fixed something. But having an insurance sure comes in handy. Just like that, having a warranty will come in super clutch as well.
This became longer than I anticipated. But hey! We discussed about some sights, you took a sip of your coffee, win-win scenario in my books.
Jokes aside, I hope you found the sight you have been looking for. And if you are on the pinch of deciding a sight, I hope this was able to help you pull the trigger on that sight. That’s all for now, will be back with more for you guys soon. C’ya.
