Holosun SCRS: Solar Charging Rifle Sight

It is well known that solar backup optics are just that, a backup. Generally, a solar panel attached to an optic will power the optic reticle and not charge the device battery. These solar panels do not mitigate the need for battery changes but can act as an ambient power supply for the reticle or a backup if/when a battery fails. This changes now as Holosun releases the SCRS in 2023.

The SCRS (Solar Charging Rifle Sight) advances Holosun’s SCS technology, creating an all-new, ultra-compact 20mm tube sight designed for rifle applications.

The SCRS features multi-directional light sensors, an advanced auto mode for automatic reticle intensity settings, and a manual mode for manual dot intensity control. The 20,000-hour power reserve is stored in an internal solar charging battery, providing ample power to charge three different reticle styles: 65 MOA Circle & 2 MOA Dot, 2 MOA Dot, or 65 MOA Circle. Capable of +/- 50 MOA travel with 1 MOA per click adjustment. Reticle intensity has eight daylight and four night vision settings. SCRS is IP67 rated and made from 7075 aluminum utilizing Holosun’s 509T footprint for compatibility with third-party offset RDS mounts.

Finally, the call for the solar charging optic is being answered. Holosun’s SCRS is a large step in compact housing. The SCRS isn’t just suitable for the average shooter, but with the additional night vision settings and a large range of adjustments, it is ideal for all environments and usage.
