There’s nothing faster or more reflexive than placing a floating reticle on a target and mashing the trigger as your life depends on it. Speed and accuracy win close-quarter fights and a holographic weapon sight (HWS) provides that in spades.
Much beyond 100 yards, our eyes need a little help to positively identify targets and optimally place that reticle prior to pressing the trigger. The proper supplemental tool for the job is an inline magnifier that snaps in behind your HWS or red-dot sight, greatly increasing your precision and effective range.

When positioned properly, no other magnifier provides a clearer, more unobstructed, scope-like view than the G33.
