Deal of the Day by Webyshops: EOTECH 512 Holographic Weapon Sight

Description

The EOTECH 512 Holographic Weapon Sight, 65 MOA Ring/1 MOA Dot Reticle, AA Battery (512.A65/1) is the most popular model HWS. This tactical optic is perfect for agencies that want the best in CQB speed and versatility, without the need for night vision compatibility.
This EOTech Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) is the 1st electro-optic sighting system to apply holographic technology to small and medium-sized weapon platforms. When used in Close Quarters Battle (CQB) environments, this revolutionary weapon optic delivers amazing speed and accuracy gains, uncompromising use of peripheral vision, leaves no muzzle-side optical signature and is packaged in a compact, durable unit.
Now deployed with elite Special Forces and SWAT teams the world over, the EOTech Holosight deliver vastly improved shooting performance for all levels of operators.
The standard reticle is a 65 MOA ring with alignment ticks and a 1 MOA aiming dot. The large, open ring is the key to the lightning quick eye recognition and unmatched target acquisition speed. Alternately, the 1 MOA can be used for precision aiming at distances as far as 500 yards where it only covers 5″ of the target scene. The reticle demonstrates its versatility for a host of close quarter and long range engagement scenarios. There is no compromise between speed and precision accuracy.
This model Holographic Weapon Sight mounts to any universal Picatinny mounting rail (supports standard Weaver dovetail) with an integral mounting platform for adaptation to user preferred eye relief.
The EOTech Holo Sight can interface to any standard issue M16 or M4 variant in either a fixed carry handle or flattop receiver, and with no modifications to the weapon. The M16 and M4 mounting platforms provide for the functionally critical aspect of co-witnessing the iron sights within the HWS’s Heads Up Display while maintaining the operator’s critical check weld position.
The 512 Holographic Weapon Sight has been designed and tested to provide consistent, reliable performance, even in the most hostile operating environments. This HWS is waterproof (submersible to 10 feet depth), fogproof, shockproof, and withstands extreme temperature variations.
WARNING: This Holographic Weapon Sight is controlled under the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and may not be exported without proper authorization by the U.S. Department of State.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops: EOTECH 552 Holographic Weapon Sight

Standardized by the DEA, ATF, and FBI SWAT, the EOTECH 552 Holographic Weapon Sight, 65 MOA Ring/1 MOA Dot Reticle, NV Compatible, AA Battery (552.A65/1) is by far the most popular HWS model.
The EOTech 552 ensures significant gains in speed upon initial weapon presentation, and target-to-target shot placement. Seemingly effortless follow-up shots can be executed with unprecedented speed and accuracy. When deployed in CQB environments, the 552 Holographic Sight allows maximum peripheral vision by allowing the operator to take full advantage of a heads-up and both-eyes-open sighting technique.
This model HWS comes with a standard reticle – 65 MOA ring with alignment ticks and a 1 MOA aiming dot. The large, open ring is the key to the lightning quick eye recognition and unmatched target acquisition speed. Alternately, the 1 MOA can be used for precision aiming at distances as far as 500 yards where it only covers 5″ of the target scene. The reticle demonstrates its versatility for a host of close quarter and long range engagement scenarios.
When coaligned with a suitable NVD, this model sight becomes part of a formidable night vision weapon sighting system. A special night vision setting reduces the intensity of the Eotech holosight reticle to eliminate halo and over-saturation of the night vision device. With the appropriate rail extension and quick release mechanism, this combination allows your weapon to switch from broad daylight to no-light environments quickly, easily, and without losing zero.
This NV compatible, AA battery model is the sight of choice by military units like Stryker Brigade, 10th Mountain, and 3rd Infantry. It is battle proven to withstand the abuse that any harsh environment, high powered weapon platform, or military mission can dish out.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops: EOTech EXPS3-2 Holographic Weapon Sight

Eotech has done it again by making the best even better. Offering true 2 eyes open shooting, a transversly mounted lithium 123 battery, and 7 mm raised base offering iron sight access, the EOTech EXPS3-2 Holographic Weapon Sight, NV Compatible, 65 MOA ring and (2) 1 MOA dots Reticle (EXPS3-2) features easy to adjust side buttons and a single, quick release throw lever for easy attachment and removal.

The illuminated ring-dots reticle offers 30 brightness levels to choose from, 10 of which are compatible with night vision gear. The battery compartment was completely redesigned to accommodate a single CR123A battery – an easy to open cover is held in place by a tethered o-ring, and the compartment is elevated so it hovers over the Delta Ring.

Designed for today’s modern battlefield, the Eotech EXPS3-2 is submersible to a depth of 33 feet, and the 1″ Weaver or (MIL-STD-1913) mount is repeatable to 2 MOA after re-mounting. The rear window is a 3/16″ thick shatterproof laminate with anti-glare and scratch resistant coatings, and the front lens is 1/8″ solid glass. Because the optical system is based upon transmission holography, parallax error is not an issue – this is an excellent feature that can save your hams when the mayonnaise hits the fan.

Shooting Spotlight

Las Vegas, NV at the 2011 SHOT Show -

I stopped by L3 Communications/EOTech and spoke with Marketing Communications Manager Amy Miller. A pair of interesting new products, actually package deals, are available for those involved in tactical shooting, law enforcement/military operations and hunting.

Their EOTech Holographic Sight has a long record of use in military and law enforcement organizations. There’s currently an EOTech Holographic Weapon Sight purchased under contract with US SOCOM. I was aware the military had a record with their sights and I was also aware that not all users were happy.

There’s been some record of failures with their sight. It’s too bad. When I first used one of their sights, it was already mounted on a Wilson Combat UT-15 carbine. After I figured out how to use it – I didn’t get user documentation with the package – it was very fast and easy to use.

A lot of chatter can be heard these days about how bad these sights are. This makes me question why SOCOM would want them. Apparently a battery connection issue – complete with an easy, two-minute fix – was the major malfunction.

Mike Kroll is the Service Manager at EOTech. this is a company where, if you call during business hours, a human answers. If you have a complaint about your sight, you call Mike. If he needs it in for repair, he’ll ask for your sight, repair it as needed and “QC” it, ensuring it’s right before it goes home. Amy said, “We’re accountable. If there’s a problem, we stand behind the product and fix it.”

The new product combo is the MPO II. Standing for “Multipurpose Optic,” this is the Holographic Weapon Sight (EXPS-3) and a magnification unit (G23). The HWS, like others before it, has no muzzle side signature – meaning you can’t see the lit reticle from the front and no reticle wash out in adverse light conditions. The unit is waterproof, shockproof, fogproof, easily adaptable to tactical weapons platforms and it’s compatible with NVDs (Night Vision Devices). Magnification is fixed 3X.

The MPO III has the AR223 4-dot reticle, giving the user aiming points relative to the 62 grain round from a 14.5″ barrel. It runs on one lithium 123 battery. Battery life is around 600 hours. The sight shuts off automatically after eight hours. It’s supplied on a quick removable base and features repeatability within an MOA when properly remounted. The MSRP is $1,069.

The MPOIII is about the same set-up with two exceptions – it’s not night vision compatible and it features the two dot ballistic reticle. The MSRP is $1,002.

Both packages are intended to give full service with a smaller footprint on the rail. A shorter package over all, consisting of quality components , there is one other advantage. The magnifier has a “flip to the side” (FTS) mount that allows the user to quickly pop the magnifier out of the way when we’re suddenly too close.

I’ll be evaluating an EOTech sight in the near future. It seems their problems may be in the rearview mirror. As I prefer to have more players in the field of combat sights — to increase competition and development, I’m happy to see EOTech isn’t turning a deaf ear to customers.
