RECOIL Magazine Declares Holosun Best in Show at 2023 SHOT Show

The excitement at the 2023 SHOT Show was electric. Holosun wowed the crowd with new solar-charged optics, weapon lights, and two distinctly new and compact thermal and night vision prototypes. Members of the media were impressed by the technology and options included in the lightweight rail-mounted optics. Amidst the press attention at the show, Holosun took home RECOIL magazine’s Best In Show award for the new DRS-TH and DRS-NV optics.

This event marked the first time that a non-firearm product has received RECOIL’s Best In Show award. Josh Erikson, Holosun’s Director of Marketing, stated, “We here at Holosun are proud to receive RECOIL Magazine’s Best In Show award. This is the first time the award has been given to an optician, and we are incredibly honored to have such recognition from our industry peers. We thank everyone who stopped by the booth this year to see our new products, and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of innovation for the marketplace.”

RECOIL’s awards are presented each year during the SHOT Show, with winners chosen in a direct vote of the entire editorial staff. The award, produced by the LEO armory in Tucson, AZ, lit up the Holosun booth throughout the week. Tom Marshall, editor of RECOIL magazine, said: “Holosun continues to offer innovative features and consistent reliability at affordable prices. Based on what the consumer expects to receive in the projected MSRP, we believe the DRS has the potential to drive the larger optical market to make hybrid optical technology more widely available to everyone. Our Best In Show award was well earned for what we hope will be a trendsetting entry in digitally powered and multi-capable weapon sights.”

The exciting new Holosun DRS (Digital Reflex Sight) integrates a thermal or digital night vision overlay onto a standard red dot. Although it will not be available until the end of 2023, some prototypes are being tested.
