Canis Latrans PP2-0104 VS Holosun HS503C

The first part of the sight selection process is to determine your needs in terms of your use and vision requirements.  Are you using the Rifles or shotguns for competition, recreation?  Each usage profile has a different set of needs which should be examined.  
First of all, you have to know that red dot sights are usually small, and electronic sight systems that generate a dot-shaped reticle – often in red – that serves as the designator for where your rounds should land. Many red dot sights on the market today fit into one of two types: reflex and holographic sights.
1Reflex, short for reflector. sights use a light-emitting diode, or LED. Basically, a small LED generates a colored dot of light, which reflects against a small spherical mirror. The mirror focuses the dot onto a lens, which is what you see when you look through the sight.2Holographic, Simply put, holographic sights record the light reflected off on object scene, decode the recording and reconstruct the light field in the sight viewing area. Reflex sights is a choice for most shooter, so the red-dot sight is often known as a reflex sight.
Canis Latrans PP2-0104 is a small red dot sight that is very similar in style to the Holosun HS503C but at a fraction of the cost.
The PP2-0104 is a 2MOA LED red dot. On top of that the PP2-0104 has a built in solar panel for dual power options.This is similar to the Holosun HS503C.
The solar panel will run the optic and auto dim the red dot due to ambient light. At a 20 lumen threshold you need to turn the red dot on manually.  The battery has been repositioned under the optic. There is a side door to access the battery. The PP2-0104  use two brightness knobs on the side of the optic.
The PP2-0104 has a ↑ and ↓ buttons to adjust the brightness of the red dot. With out a battery/power knob there is no longer a batterycase to obsure your vision.

The biggest advantage of the PP2-0104 is that it use a AAA battery instead of the CR2032.You can buy the chargeable AAA battery by yourself.The battery will work automatically if the solar power is not enough . 
It come with a low mount,but also add a high mount, depending on your needs.
