Nuprol NP 882 Holo Sight – 552 Klon – Review

In any case, it is interesting that Nuprol supplies optional accessories directly here. So you can modify the 882 as you like it.

Materials and workmanship

The Nuprol 882 consists mainly of metal. The buttons for switching on and off are made of rubber, the battery compartment is made of plastic. The workmanship makes a stable impression. At 1-2 corners the varnish is not quite stable, but we can overlook that for the price. In addition, the optics in the game certainly gets a scratch or two.

Operation & Functions

Battery Compartment & Switching on the Nuprol 882

The NP 882 comes with 2 AA batteries. Advantage of these is of course, that there are also rechargeable batteries available. And even if you absolutely want to use normal batteries. You can find them almost everywhere. If you don’t have any batteries on a game day, or the existing ones are empty, that’s no problem.

The battery compartment is simply the front part of the optics. This is held in position by a large lever. If you fold it upwards, the compartment can be removed. Then simply insert the batteries correctly and reattach the compartment, and the NP 882 is ready for use.

The optic can easily be switched on and off on the front (seen from the user). There are 3 rubber buttons. With these you can easily switch the reticle on or off and also adjust the color/brightness.

The two rectangular ones serve several functions at the same time. If one of the two is pressed (if the NP 882 is switched off), it is switched on. Then you can adjust the brightness in 20 steps. If you press both buttons at the same time, you switch off the optics. The round middle button is used to change the color of the reticle. The colors red and green are available.

The Reticle

The NP 882 is targeted with the reticence that one would expect from a replica of the 552. A circle with 3 points lying one below the other. The camera captured this very sharply, but it is somewhat less clear to the human eye. Recognizable and usable, but a little less sharp.

The brightness is well visible on the last 5 levels even at high brightness. Unfortunately, the differences don’t come out very well with our camera. But on a normal day in spring the first 5 steps are hardly visible. These are rather intended for the evening/night. The 20 steps are very well usable, so you can adapt perfectly to different lighting conditions.

Like the original 552, the Nuprol 882 is high enough to allow fast aiming. But also not too high. So simple flip-up sights can be used as emergency sights. Here in the picture we used the sights of the MP7 A1 AEG.

Mount

The 552 replica can be mounted with a simple screw assembly. This fits directly on Picatinny rails and can therefore also be infinitely tightened. This is often necessary, especially with plastic rails. Alternatively, Nuprol also supplies a QD closure. This is simply exchanged and you have a 552 with QD mount. You can do it, but we like the NP 882 best in its classic look.

Mounting the lens cover

The lens protector that is included generates more interest. To mount it, first loosen the 4 Allen screws at the bottom of the housing. A matching key is included. The metal bow can be simply pushed off. Then simply insert the lens protector into the bow first and push it back onto the optic.

And it’s more of a glare shield. Because the lenses it protects mainly when it is folded down. But since the front cover is held in an angled position, less light falls in and even in strong light the reticle can be used. This is an interesting option, but we would probably not use it so much ourselves.

Adjusting

A practical look is of course useless if it is not adjusted to the weapon. The reticle is simply adjusted on the right side using the two screws. These can easily be operated with a screwdriver or a small coin. Markings and directional arrows simplify operation.

Conclusion

There are many Holo sights. It is quite difficult to attract attention in this area. Nuprol manages this in any case with the scope of delivery. A different mount and a lens cover are certainly not huge highlights. But they are more than you get with many other optics in this price segment.

Most replicas of Holo sights fail in strong light. The Nuprol 882 stands out positively. Even on a bright day we can recognize the reticle easily and quickly. Of course on the brightest level. If it gets difficult, the lens cover helps with the angled lid.

The batteries used are a great advantage. Simple AA batteries are really everywhere. So if you forget yours, or if they are empty, you can easily find a replacement. Batteries are also available. In addition, high-quality batteries also slightly increase the brightness.

The processing is so stable. The price of 74,90 € is in the middle of the range for clones of these optics. There are cheaper, but also worse processed. Of course, the opposite is also true. The 882 is definitely suitable for airsoft players. And the brute look of the 552 clone also speaks for itself.

We have received this sample from Airsoft2go.com. Under this link (click HERE) you will find this directly. Don’t be confused by the thumbnail. A 552 clone will be delivered.
