We tried out numerous red dot sights on pistols, and found the 4 best Beretta Cheetah 80X red dot sights. These stand out for their durability, quick aiming, and long battery life.

The Beretta 80X Cheetah uses a proprietary cut slide. Buy adapter plate from Beretta or Freedom Gorilla.

Holosun 507K X2 - Best Overall

The Holosun 507K is one of the best pistol red dot sights for the 380 Beretta Cheetah 80X.  The optic is small and compact for carry use.

The 32 MOA reticle is a game-changer for users with astigmatism. If you don't like the single dot option, you can cycle through the modes and just use the 32 MOA ring for close up targets.

The battery life is incredible. It lasts over 100,000 hours, and even if the battery gives up, the Solar Failsafe feature keeps it going. This means I can rely on it for much longer periods, without worrying about the sight dying on me in crucial moments.

The durability of this sight is top-notch, too. Made with 7075 T6 aluminum, it's strong enough to handle the recoil of the heaviest handgun calibers. So for a 380 ACP pistol, that's not going to be an issue.

For someone like me who carries concealed, the lockout mode is a lifesaver. It prevents any accidental brightness adjustments, which can happen when buttons are pressed by mistake. This feature keeps the sight just the way I need it, without any unexpected changes.

    Cyelee CAT Pro - Best For The Money

    The Cyelee Cat Pro is a brand new budget option 3 MOA micro red dot sight that can go on the Beretta Cheetah 80X. The lens hood is much more durable and thicker than other RMSc style red dot sights I have tried in the past.

    The battery can also be accessed from the side like other modern red dot sights. The entire body is built with 7075 T6 aluminum and it can handle rough handling while maintaining zero.

    Holosun EPS Carry - Largest FOV

    Holosun EPS packaging

    The Holosun EPS Carry stands strong against dirt, water, you name it. This thing doesn't let any debris sneak into the optic when mounted on the Beretta Cheetah 80X.

    Mounting it was a breeze but it requires stacking of the K footprint to RMSc adapter, but at least these lugs make sure the optic stays put without shifting around.

    Besides the closed emitter design, the rest of the optic is very similar to the Holosun 507K, super easy to swap out the battery without having to remove the sight. 

    The one I got is the 6 MOA dot option and there are also 2 MOA, and a multi-reticle system with a 32 MOA ring option available.

    • Magnification: 1X
    • Reticle: 2 MOA, 6 MOA or MRS
