Top 8 Smith & Wesson FPC Holosun Optics - Red & Green Dot Sights

Top 8 Smith & Wesson FPC Holosun Optics - Red & Green Dot Sights

If you are the proud owner or potential owner of the Smith and Wesson FPC then congratulations. It’s one of the coolest pistol caliber carbines that has come out. I mean who doesn't love a folding 9MM carbine?

To top it off, we really love the fact that Smith and Wesson gave the FPC an MLOK Rail, magazine holder, and that it came with an awesome carrying bag.

One of the great things about the FPC is that you can easily mount a red dot sight on it. A red dot or green dot optic will mount directly on the beginning of the handguard. Just tighten it down and your good to go.

In this guide we are going to cover the best Holosun Red & Green dot sights you can mount on your Smith & Wesson FPC. There are many to choose from, so our goal is to explain each series as clearly and simply as we can, so you can choose the best option for you.

All of these optics come with picatinny mounts, so they will clamp directly onto your Smith and Wesson FPC top rail on the handguard.

*Note: Due to the rail being so far forward on the S&W FPC you will not be able to mount a red dot magnifier or prism scope or traditional scope. This is because those optics require eye relief and the S&W FPC handguard is too far forward. Rest assured all the red dots we cover in this guide are perfectly visible!

TLDR

In case you don’t want to read the entire article, here is a summary of the optics we recommend and why. Just be aware, we are recommending each series of Holosun's red dot sights. Within each series there are multiple variants. We explain each throughout this guide to help you make the best, most educated buying decision!

Quick Nav


Why do we recommend Holosun vs other brands?

When it comes to picatinny mounted red dot sights there are plenty of options on the market. We considered featuring other brands in this guide, but we felt it may make choosing a red dot even more confusing. The reason we decided to highlight Holosun in this guide is for the following reasons:

  • Transparency: Holosun clearly states the material their optics are made of. For example many are made out of 6061 aluminum, many are 7075 aluminum, some are made out of titanium, and only their lowest, most cheapest optic is made out of cast aluminum.
  • Waterproof Ratings: Holosun also states the waterproof ratings of each and many other specs. Many competitors leave this information out, so you don’t get a full clear picture of what you’re spending your money on.
  • Market Leader: Holosun is leading the market. They really are. They introduced the solar failsafe, shake awake, and the MRS reticle. For the longest time a good affordable red dot sight wasn’t that easy to find. Some were not reliable, others were priced at $500+. Holosun stepped in and really secured the value to price ratio in this space.
  • Affordability & Value: For the features you get, the performance, the reliability, and the track record, Holosun really is the leader in the red dot space.
  • Innovation: Since their introductions of their red dots with solar failsafes and shake awake - Holosun has continued to innovate. They come out with new red dot designs and features all the time and help make the entire market more competitive.
  • Warranty: All Holosun optics have a limited lifetime warranty. The structure and materials are lifetime and the electronics are 10 years.
  • Emitters, refresh rate, and brightness: This is an often overlooked element of choosing a red dot optic but it’s one you become aware of once you’ve looked through hundreds of them. Holosun has very good emitters, probably one of the best, if not the best, in the market. Holosun emitters are very bright (very visible in bright sunlight) and they have high refresh rates. We have seen red dots from other brands in which the emitter doesn’t get as bright and also where the refresh rate is low. When the refresh rate is low you will see chatter in the dot, almost like it’s flickering on and off really quickly. This is another subtle and often overlooked reason why we recommend Holosun.

Types of Holosun optics

  • Tube style: Tube style optics are usually a 20MM tube with a circular window.
  • Large window: Large window optics usually have rectangular or square windows. These give you a larger field of view than the 20MM tube but they are usually a bit heavier. 
Holosun Tube Style vs Larger Window Red & Green Dot Optics
  • Open vs Enclosed Emitter: The only open emitter optic we are covering is the 510C, the rest are closed emitters. Open emitters have the laser emitter open to the elements so items such as water, dirt, mud or debris could potentially interfere with the beam causing accuracy or non-operability issues depending on severity. Closed emitters protect the beam from those elements. Many people love the 510C and never have any issues, but it’s worth mentioning.

Holosun Optic Features to be aware of

  • MRS Reticle: The Holosun MRS Reticle is three reticles in one. It gives you a large 65 MOA outer ring and a 2 MOA center dot. The larger outer ring is great for quick target acquisition and close shots, while the 2 MOA dot is great for precision. To toggle the reticle you hold down the "-" button for 3 seconds. This will let you cycle between the 65 MOA outer ring + 2 MOA dot, 2 MOA dot only, or 65 MOA outer ring only.
Holosun Rifle MRS Toggle - How To
  • Shake Awake: Shake awake is one of the most popular features. When your optic is left sitting for longer than 10 minutes, it will automatically turn off. The moment it senses movement it will turn back on. We have tested this by touching the optic with a Q-Tip and it was enough to turn it back on. This is a great way to not have to remember to turn it off and to conserve battery life. It turns off by itself, and turns on automatically when you pick it up.
  • Solar Failsafe: The solar failsafe feature on the Holosun’s are also handy. Any optic with a solar panel has the solar failsafe. This means that if your battery were to die, the solar panel will still power the optic. There are internal capacitors that actually store a bit of battery life so that is how it operates. We’ve tried this for ourselves by taking out the battery on a Holosun AEMs and it still functioned, even in low light conditions.
Holosun Solar Failsafe vs Non Solar Failsafe Example
  • Auto Brightness: Auto brightness modes are also added to optics with Solar Panels. Auto brightness is an additional mode that will automatically adjust the reticle brightness depending on the lighting conditions you are in. It is a nice feature to have, especially if you are going shooting indoors to outdoors, it will just adjust automatically.
  • Cowitness Heights & Mounts: Each Holosun optic comes with different height mounts and some come with a low mount. For the tall mounts there is either a co-witness mount or a lower 1/3 co-witness mount. If you have iron sights on your rail like Magpul MBUS sights, a co-witness red dot mount will put the dot directly in line with your iron sights. If you have a lower 1/3 co-witness mount it will place the dot above your iron sights, and your iron sights will be visible in the lower 1/3 of the optic window.
  • Low Mount: If you were wanting to mount the red dot really low on your rail then you would use the low mount. The low mount put the red dot almost directly on top of the picatinny rail.

Without further adieu let's cover each of the Holosun Red dot options we would recommend for the S&W FPC. We are going to cover each “Series”. Within each series are different variants which will explain below. If we were to cover every red dot this list would be too long!

So our advice and guidance is to choose a series you feel best suits your needs and then click through to view all the red dots and green dots within that series and choose the options you feel best serves you.

1. Holosun 403 Series - Best Budget Tube Style Option

Holosun 403 Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 403 Series at The Best Price

The 403 series from Holosun is great for someone on a budget, or someone who just needs something with a 2 MOA dot only.

The Holosun 403 Series is the most budget friendly series in the Holosun optic lineup. It is made up of the 403R, 403C, and 403B.

The 403 series is the most budget friendly due to the fact that it has a 2 MOA reticle only.

Here is a breakdown of all the optics within the Holosun 403 Series.

All 403 Series Holosuns have:

  • 2 MOA Dots only
  • 1/3 cowitness and low mounts
  • IP67 waterproof ratings
  • 20MM Windows
  • Side Battery Tray
  • 50,000 hours of battery life
  • 10 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • Footprint: Aimpoint
  • Mount: Picatinny
  • Manual Brightness Modes

Here is where they differ:

  • 403R Series (no shake awake): This is the most budget red dot Holosun makes. It is cast aluminum, has a rotary style knob, and does not have solar failsafe or shake awake. There is a red dot version and a gold dot version.
  • 403B Series (shake awake): This is the next step up. The 403B Series has a 6061 aluminum housing, and comes with shake awake but no solar failsafe. The 403B comes in red or green reticles and also has an FDE colored version for each reticle color. 
  • 403C Series (shake awake + solar failsafe): This is the top of the 403 line. The 403C has a 6061 aluminum housing, and comes with shake awake and a solar failsafe. The solar failsafe also gives it an additional auto brightness mode, so it can be used in manual or auto brightness modes.

2. Holosun 503 Series - Best Budget Tube Style MRS Option

Holosun 503 Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 503 Series at The Best Price

The 503 Series is for someone looking for a well built and reliable red dot or green dot with an MRS reticle at a somewhat affordable price point.

The next step up from the Holosun 403 Series is the 503 Series. The 503 Series is very similar to the 403 series, except it features Holosun Multi Reticle System (MRS). The MRS reticle is a 65 MOA outer ring and a 2 MOA center dot. The reticle can be toggled by holding down the “-” button for three seconds to show the outer ring only, the 2 moa dot only, or both together.

The MRS reticle is pretty cool, it can help you get on target faster and I will admit, it is a bit more pleasing to look at than the 2 MOA dot only.

Within the 503 Series there is also a co-branded optic with Primary Arms which features the ACSS CQB Reticle. This reticle is a chevron BDC and a larger outer ring. The chevron and dots act like a BDC reticle, and the outer ring acts as a shotgun pattern at 25 yards. 

Within the 503 Series there is the 503R, 503CU and 503G. Here is a breakdown of each.

All 503 Series Holosuns have:

  • 6061 aluminum housings
  • 1/3 cowitness and low mounts
  • IP67 waterproof ratings
  • 20MM Windows
  • Side Battery Tray
  • Battery Life: 20K hours for the MRS Reticle, 50K hours for the dot only
  • 10 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • Footprint: Aimpoint
  • Mount: Picatinny
  • Manual Brightness Modes

Here is where they differ:

  • Holosun 503R (no solar or shake awake): This is the lowest cost MRS reticle holosun optic you can buy. It has a rotary knob to adjust brightness and it does not have solar failsafe or shake awake. There is a red dot version and a gold dot version.
  • Holosun 503CU (solar + shake awake): This is the most popular 503 series optic. It has the MRS reticle, solar failsafe, shake awake, and comes in red or green reticles.
  • Holosun 503G-ACSS (shake awake + ACSS CQB Reticle): This is the co-branded optic with primary arms and features the ACSS CQB reticle. It comes in a red reticle version only.

3. Holosun 515 Series - Best Premium Tube Style MRS Option

Holosun 515 Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 515 Series at The Best Price

The 515 Series of Holosun red dots is perfect for someone who likes 20mm tube style red or green dot sights, and wants a QD mount and premium, super durable housing materials, with the added benefits of the kill flash and flip up scope caps.

These optics are a bit pricier than other Holosun options, but if you do your research, and factor in the fact they come with a QD mount, Kill Flash, and Flip up scope caps, you are getting a pretty good deal for the money.

The next step up from the 503 series is the Holosun 515 series. The 515 series from Holosun is very similar to the 503 series except it upgrades the housing material from 6061 aluminum to 7075 T6 Aluminum or Grade 5 Titanium and upgrades the waterproof rating from IP67 to IP68.

It also comes with other upgrades such as a QD (quick disconnect) mount, clear flip up scope caps, and a kill flash which helps minimize glare on the front of the red dot.

All 515 series optics come with MRS reticles and there are red and green reticles available. The 515 series is made up of the 515CM, 515GM, 515GT, and 515CT.

*Note: These do not come with a low mount, so if you were looking for something with a low mount you would want to go with the 403 series or 503 series.

Here is a breakdown of all the 515 series Holosun optics:

All 515 Series Holosuns have:

  • IP68 waterproof ratings
  • 20MM Windows
  • Side Battery Tray
  • Battery Life: 20K hours for the MRS Reticle, 50K hours for the dot only
  • 10 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • QD Mounts
  • Kill Flash, Clear Scope Covers
  • MRS Reticle
  • Come in red or green reticles
  • Footprint: Aimpoint
  • Mount: Picatinny
  • Manual Brightness Modes

Here is where they differ:

  • 515GM (Aluminum, 1/3 CoWitness Mounts, Shake Awake): This is the most affordable series in the 515 series. These optics are made out of 7075 T6 Aluminum, have a 1/3 CoWitness QD mount, and come with shake awake but do not have solar failsafes. They are also available in red or green reticles.
  • 515CM (Aluminum, 1/3 CoWitness Mounts, Shake Awake + Solar): This is the next step up, and features everything the 515GM has but has a solar failsafe and auto brightness mode in addition to manual brightness mode.
  • 515GT (Titanium, Absolute CoWitness Mounts, Shake Awake) 
  • 515CT (Titanium, Absolute CoWitness Mounts, Shake Awake + Solar): The 515GT and 515CT are the most premium in this series. They both feature an absolute co-witness QD mount, are made out of Grade 5 Titanium, and both have shake awake. The 515GT does not have a solar failsafe the 515CT does have a solar failsafe with an auto and manual brightness mode. Both the 515GT and 515CT are available in red or green reticles.

4. Holosun SCRS - Best Solar Charging Option

Holosun SCRS Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the SCRS Series at The Best Price

The SCRS is great for someone who loves new technology, and loves the idea of having a red or green dot sight you can install and never have to change batteries or worry about the optic turning on or off. It’s also great for anyone looking for a compact rifle red dot.

The Holosun SCRS series is the most recent rifle red dot launched by Holosun. The SCRS stands for Solar Charging Rifle Sight. These optics are really cool and here’s why.

Holosun has been known for their “Solar Failsafe” technology. It’s what originally put them on the map. In many Holosun Rifle optics, you can take the batteries out, and the optic will still work, even if there is no light - that is due to it storing power in one of the capacitors. Anyway, what Holosun has done with the SCRS is take the same solar powered technology and incorporated an internally rechargeable battery in the SCRS series. The end result is that you get a red or green dot that is constantly being charged by the sun or ambient light which eliminates the need to ever replace batteries.

The SCRS has an internal battery so it isn’t removable or changeable, but for those that trust the technology, it’s very convenient and handy to have an optic you know will always be ready to go. The internally rechargeable battery has a 20K hour power reserve, which means that even without light it would work for 2 years.

Another major thing to understand about the solar recharging technology, is that the battery charges faster than the optic consumes power. So it can run indefinitely.

The other cool thing about the SCRS is that it is shorter than any other tube style optics on the market. It’s really compact and takes up very minimal railspace. It’s great for an application where size of the optic is a consideration.

The SCRS comes in 2 MOA dot models and MRS models. They are also offered in red or green reticles.

Here are the similarities for all the SCRS models:

  • All SCRS models have 7075 T6 Aluminum housings
  • All have 1/3 co-witness mounts
  • All have 20MM windows
  • All have auto and manual brightness modes
  • All have 8 daylight, and 4 nightvision settings
  • All are IP67 waterproof
  • Footprint: 509T
  • Mount: Picatinny
  • Shake Awake
  • Manual Brightness Modes

5. Holosun 530 - Best 30MM Large Window Tube Style Option

Holosun 530 Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 530 Series at The Best Price

The 530 series is for users who want a larger window, in a tube style optic, and want the ultra durability the Grade 5 Titanium offers.

The last tube style optic we’ll cover is the 530 Series. The 530 Series is similar to the titanium versions of the 515 series except it has a 30MM window instead of a 20MM window.

The 530 series is made out of Grade 5 Titanium and has a QD Co-Witness mounts. Each optic in this series also come with the MRS reticle, kill flash, and clear scope covers.

Here is a breakdown of each sub-series within the 530 series:

6. Holosun 510C Series - Best Budget Large Window Option

Holosun 510C Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 510 Series at The Best Price

The 510C is the perfect option for someone who wants a nice, large window optic that is very pleasing to look through and has all the goodies like the MRS reticle, QD Mount, Shake Awake, and Solar Failsafe

The 510C Series from Holosun is one of Holosun’s best selling rifle optics. It comes in red or green reticles, has a QD co-witness mount, has the MRS reticle, and has a large window protected by a Titanium Shroud.

The reason the 510C is so popular is due to it’s price point and value. When you factor in the large window, QD mount, MRS reticle, Solar Failsafe, Shake Awake, and Large Window you realize it’s a pretty dang good deal.

The only “downside” to the 510C is that it’s an open emitter. You can read more about open vs closed emitters here, but basically it means the laser emitter beam is open to the elements and can potentially be obstructed. So if you were to get dirt, mud, debris, or puddles of water between the emitter and the glass, the optic could become inaccurate or unusable. This optic can still be used when it rains or snows, and many people never have any issues at all, but it is something to be aware of.

All 510C Series Holosuns have:

  • Black or FDE Housings
  • 6061 Aluminum Housings with Titanium Protective Shrouds
  • IP67 waterproof ratings
  • Large & Wide windows
  • Side Battery Tray
  • Battery Life: 20K hours for the MRS Reticle, 50K hours for the dot only
  • 10 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • QD Co-Witness Mounts (1/3 Co-Witness Spacer Sold Separately)
  • MRS Reticle
  • Red or green reticles
  • Shake Awake
  • Solar Failsafe, Auto & Manual Brightness Modes
  • Mount: Picatinny

7. Holosun 512T Series - Best Large Window Enclosed Emitter Option

Holosun 512T Series Red & Green Dot Optics

Buy the 512 Series at The Best Price

The 512T is great for someone looking for a large window red dot that is built like a tank. The grade 5 titanium housing makes it super durable, the enclosed emitter ensures reliability in all conditions, and the large window paired with other features make it a great premium large window enclosed emitter red dot.

The Holosun 512T series is the next step up from the 510C. It’s almost the same optic, except it’s an enclosed emitter and the housing is made out of Grade 5 Titanium. It doesn't come with a QD mount like the 510C.

Holosun used to make the 512C - which was an aluminum version, but it is discontinued. 

The 512T features a large window, has the grade 5 titanium housing, solar failsafe, shake awake, and a co-witness mount. It’s also available in red or green reticles.

All 510C Series Holosuns have:

  • Grade 5 Titanium Housings
  • IPX8 waterproof ratings
  • Large & Wide windows
  • Side Battery Tray
  • Battery Life: 20K hours for the MRS Reticle, 50K hours for the dot only
  • 10 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • Co-Witness Mounts
  • MRS Reticle
  • Red or green reticles
  • Shake Awake
  • Solar Failsafe, Auto & Manual Brightness Modes
  • Mount: Picatinny

The 512T is going to be a bit heavy due to it’s enclosed emitter and titanium housing.

8. Holosun AEMS - Best Budget Large Window Enclosed Option

Holosun AEMS Series Red & Green Dot Sights

Buy the AEMS Series at The Best Price

The AEMS series of red and green dots are great for someone looking for a great enclosed emitter optic with a nice sized window that isn’t too heavy or bulky. These optics are very unique and very pleasing to look through!

Last but not least is the Holosun AEMS series (Pronounced AIM’s). The Holosun AEMs is quickly becoming a top seller for Holosun and for good reason.

It bridges the gap between lightweight tube style optics and larger window style optics. It’s an enclosed emitter, has a very pleasing to look through window, great features, but isn’t too big or heavy. It somehow manages to stay sleek and lightweight, but still have a large - pleasing to look through window.

The window is not as big as the 510C or 512T, but when you look through an AEMS you do get quite a bit of visibility.

The AEMS Series has the AEMS MRS and the AEMS Core. The AEMS Core is the less expensive option and comes with a 2 MOA dot, while the AEMS MRS is the more expensive option and comes with the MRS reticle and scope covers.

Here are the similarities and differences between the models.

All AEMS Series Holosuns have:

  • Square Windows which are 2x larger surface area than 20MM tube sights
  • Side Battery Tray
  • Battery Life: 20K hours for the MRS Reticle, 50K hours for the dot only
  • 8 Daylight, and 2 Nightvision Settings
  • 1/3 Co-Witness Mount
  • Red or green reticles
  • Shake Awake
  • Manual Brightness Modes
  • Footprint: AEMS
  • Mount: Picatinny

Here is how the AEMS models differ:

  • AEMS Core: These have 6061 Aluminum housings, come in 2 MOA dots only, don’t have a solar failsafe, have an IP67 waterproof rating, and do not come with lens covers.
  • AEMS MRS: These have 7075 T6 Aluminum housings, come with the MRS reticle, have a solar failsafe + auto brightness, and have clear flip up lens covers.

Choosing between Red or Green Reticles

You may be wondering if you should get a red or green dot reticle. We get this question a lot so I am going to list a few bullet points for you to consider.

  • Green reticles are less straining for the eye to see.
  • Green reticles can help with astigmatism. If you have astigmatism you will see a blurry dot, we have been told by a few customers that Green dots help with their astigmatism, making the dot look more crisp than the red version.
  • Green will not washout on backdrops like green grass, foliage, or green colors.
  • In theory Green dots can have a longer battery life because Green is brighter, so for example a green dot on brightness setting 6 may be the same brightness as a red dot on setting 7 - which would save battery life.

If you want to learn more check out our full article about Red vs Green Dot Pros & Cons here.


Choosing between Open vs Closed Emitters

If you want to ensure your optic will work in environments where dirt, debris, dust, rain, snow, or mud is a concern then we recommend going with a closed emitter.

The only open emitter rifle optic Holosun makes is the 510C. Tons of people have purchased this optic and have had no issues with precipitation, however it is something to consider.

Will some rain or snow make the optic inoperable? No, but if you were to get mud, or packed snow in front of the emitter it would.

If you need a hard use optic that will be in rugged conditions, we recommend going with a closed emitter. If you plan on going to the range or going outdoors and want something that will be good 95% of the time, even in rain or snowfall then the open emitter 510C is fine, just be aware that if you were to drop it in mud or snow then you may have an issue unless you can clean it out.


How to decide which reticle style is best for you

In this guide we covered a few different reticle options. If you need some help deciding which is best for you here are some of our thoughts on each.

  • 2 MOA Dot only (View all 2 MOA Holosun Optics): The 2 MOA dot only reticle is great if this is what you are used to. Some people don’t like the clutter of the 65 MOA outer ring. The 2 MOA dot is a simple no frills reticle and will save you some money if you go this route.
  • MRS Reticle (65 MOA Ring + 2 MOA Dot) (View all MRS Reticle Holosun Optics): 65 MOA Outer Ring + 2 MOA Dot. The MRS Reticle is a great combination reticle that gives you quick target acquisition and the 2 MOA precision. It also lets you toggle between the circle dot and the 2 MOA dot only if you wanted by holding down the "-" button for three seconds. If you want the best all around reticle - the MRS is the way to go.
  • ACSS CQB BDC (View all ACSS CQB Holosun Optics): This is a unique reticle that acts as a rangefinder and BDC reticle. It can also double as a shotgun reticle. The chevron is very small when viewed in person. If you are looking for a reticle that can give you ranging and BDC then this would be the choice. Also if you are looking for a shotgun specific reticle, the outer ring here gives you a shotgun spread at 25 yards.
