What makes holographic sights special is that they offer extremely fast and easy target acquisitions. With the holographic display, you can shoot with both eyes open, and it’s optimal for “off-axis” usage where you can’t achieve a proper cheekweld or align sights in a more traditional matter. The reticle’s center dot does not increase in size under magnification. This leads us to the Vortex AMG UH-1 Gen II.

Vortex AMG UH-1 Gen II Details

The Vortex AMG UH-1 Gen II is an updated version of its Gen I, now with dedicated night-vision button, providing 4 night vision settings. Also, with the Gen II there is an improved sight picture through the enlarged window, making getting on target even faster. Plus, there is now a toolless battery cover and reduction in overall weight, now just at 11 ounces.

Everything about this UH-1 Gen II screams speed, from its low-drag, no snag looks to its lightning quick EB-CQB reticle. Vortex’s FHQ technology virtually eliminates stray light emissions for zero forward signature.

So what does all this mean? Whether your home-defense firearm is a shotgun, carbine, lever action, large-format pistol or whatever, the AMG UH-1 Gen II is an unstoppable option for you, day or night.

The new holographic sight comes well-suited for defense work on a pump shotgun.

Here’s a look at my home-defense shotgun topped with the UH-1 Gen II. The setup is clean and easy. The Henry lever-action rifle in the top photo is another option for home defense.

It just makes sense to put a holographic sight on the gun you trust to protect your loved ones. The AMG UH-1 Gen II is rugged, allows you to maintain situational awareness and won’t give away your position. It can handle whatever you need it to, like a good home-defense optic should. Lastly, MSRP comes in at $799.99. For even more info, please visit vortexoptics.com.
