Holosun 407K X2 vs 507K X2 Which is Better?

The main difference between the Holosun 407K X2 and the 507K X2 is the reticle. So which is better?

Well here are some things to consider. The M.R.S. reticle is pretty cool. It gives you some options, you can use the 32 MOA circle only, the 2 MOA dot only, or the 32 MOA Circle with the 2 MOA dot. The larger 32 MOA circle also makes the reticle a bit easier to pick up when drawing the weapon. And the 2 MOA dot is going to be more precise at distance than the 6 MOA dot.

However, the 407K X2 is cheaper, and if budget is a concern for you then you should ask yourself if you are ok with a 6 MOA dot. The 6 MOA dot is nice. It’s large enough to pick up when drawing, it’s precise enough at realistic distances, and it does have a longer battery life.
