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.

EOTech Will Introduce Compact Magnifier at SHOT Show

Ann Arbor, MI – At SHOT Show 2012 EOTech will introduce the NEW G33. This 3.25x magnifier offers an adjustable diopter for improved, more precise focusing. When viewing the target through the magnifier it will only increase the size of the target and not the actual reticle. Not only more precise, this magnifier is more compact than the previous G23. This model has been condensed down so it only needs 3.9 inches of rail space and the improvements don’t stop there. The eye relief has been extended to 2.2 inches allowing for a more comfortable cheek weld while shooting and the angle of field of view has also been increased to 7.3º giving the operator increased left to right situational awareness. The new Quick Switch to Side mount twists the magnifier out of the way for shorter range shots and can easily be knocked back into place for distance. Pairing this New G33 magnifier with you EOTech holographic sight will completely transform your shooting options and can extend your range out to nearly 600meters.

This G33 magnifier is an incredible addition to the rail. These features working together offer dramatically increased accuracy without sacrificing speed to target. Available in black and tan the G33 has an MSRP of $ 589 and will be available in Spring of 2012.

Holographic Hybrid Sights Offered by EOTech

Ann Arbor, MI December 2011- The EOTech Holographic Hybrid Sights as seen in Modern Warfare 3 are just as fast and effective in real world action. The HHS kits combine the speed of the EXPS holographic weapon sight and the extended range versatility of the NEW G33 magnifier. Offering true 2-eyes open shooting the HHS are ideal for predator hunting and long range shooting. The HHS helps to ensure accurate shooting from zero to 500 meters by utilizing the G33′s Quick Switch to Side magnifier mount. Operating buttons are located on the side of the EXPS making it easy to use in conjunction with other rail mounted accessories like the magnifier or night vision and thermal units.

There are two HHS kits to choose from. The HHS1 includes the night vision compatible EXPS3-4 HWS with the 4 dot reticle calibrated for shooting at 0-300, 400, 500 and 600 meters. This setup is perfectly suited for those expecting to take longer shots on a regular basis. The HHS2 includes the EXPS2-2 and non night vision compatible sight with a 2 dot reticle for fast action targeting. The HHS units come complete with quick detach bases that will return to zero after mounting (to the same rail location) to within 2 MOA. These kits run for an incredible 600 hours on one transversely mounted CR123 lithium battery.

Both kits come with the New G33 3.25x magnifier. Lighter and smaller than the previous G23 this magnifier can significantly extend your range. Eye relief has been extended to 2.2 inches allowing for a more comfortable cheek weld while shooting. The angle of field of view has also been increased to 7.3º giving you increase left to right situational awareness.

Built for extreme weather these optics are water and fog proof and deliver the best of both worlds, ideal for close quarters combat yet capable of making the long shot at 600 meters. These HHS kits range in MSRP from $1,059 to 1,125 and will be available in Spring of 2012.

Shooting Spotlight

Shooting Spotlight
by Rich Grassi

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.

L-3 EOTech Awarded $25 Million Contract for Optical Sighting System

ANN ARBOR MICHIGAN – L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that the EOTech division has been awarded a $25 million firm fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ), non-competitive follow-on contract to provide its miniature day/night optical sighting systems in support of the U.S. Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) Weapons Accessories Program. Production of the units will be performed at the EOTech facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“L-3 EOTech offers the only state-of-the-art holographic weapon sights available and fielded for the military market. We are proud to supply the military with innovative technology that provides our warfighters with both increased accuracy and situational awareness,” said Paul Mangano, president of EOTech.

EOTech’s unique holographic weapon sighting system is based on the same target acquisition technology used on aircraft. When viewed through a holographic sight, the soldier will perceive the reticle on the same plane as the target, eliminating critical sighting time and allowing the operator to instantly engage a target. This complex holographic sighting technology is currently only available in EOTech products.

In support of the Weapons Accessories Program, the L-3 EOTech line of sighting systems offers operators faster and more precise target acquisition capabilities when used with the small arms weapons platforms, as well as other individual and crew-served weapons. EOTech sights significantly improve the effectiveness of launchers by providing faster and more accurate targeting abilities through advanced holographic technology.

L-3 EOTech is the exclusive manufacturer and world leader of holographic sighting systems for small arms and is dedicated to continually producing high-quality, battle-tested products for U.S. servicemen and women. The sights are manufactured and distributed worldwide from the headquarters located in Ann Arbor, Mich. These advanced technology sights are used extensively by elite military groups, federal law enforcement, as well as state and local law enforcement organizations.
