Ann Arbor, MI (January 2013) – EOTech, the world leader in holographic optics for small weapons, has raised the bar and created a new holographic sight designed specifically for the crossbow platform. The EOTech 512.Xbow sight will increase the hunter’s ability to acquire their target using the specially designed ranging and aiming reticle.
Extremely easy to use, the Xbow sight offers (4) 1MOA aiming dots for precise targeting throughout the range of the crossbow. Included with the sight is the Xbow Ballistic Wheel that provides Point of Impact (POI) distance solutions for any speed (FPS) crossbow. Simply zero at 20 yards, align the dial to your crossbow speed, then shoot at the other distances to confirm. A handy sticker to attach to the limb of the crossbow is included for the hunter to write down their distances.
In addition, the Xbow includes a pre-calculated ranging scale within the sight picture that allows the hunter to determine distance. With the average deer measuring about 16″ from back to the belly, simply position the base of the scale on the belly (see diagram next to the sight) and read from where the back intersects the scale – it’s that easy.
After extensive testing of the Xbow, John Bailey, Marketing Director and avid hunter, had the following to say, “The Xbow holographic sight takes all the guess work out of crossbow hunting with optics. Having ranging and ballistic aiming capabilities all within one viewing window eliminates the need for unnecessary movements in the stand and offers you the ability to transition and get on target quickly”.
Available in April of 2013, the Xbow sight weights just under 11oz and mounts to both 1″Weaver and MIL-STD 1913 rails. It has a run time of 1,000 hours when powered by 2 AA lithium batteries (600 alkaline or rechargeable) and is waterproof to 10ft. MSRP for the 512.Xbow is $489.00.
Transform your Crossbow with an EOTech 512.Xbow Holographic Sight.

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.

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.
