The most important detail of this product.

Made in the USA, the reticle is made in the UK.


Does this mean existing stock of Gen 1 is going on clearance?

ETA: Looks like Gen 1 is pretty well gone already, a few places have them for $399 but you can order Gen 2 for $450 so meh.

Guess I should probably send in my defective gen1 finally.

Bought one of the first batches with the blossoming/blurry reticle and thought it was my astigmatism until I looked in a new production model last year and it was clear.

interesting.. way cheaper than the eo tech, I love the 65 moa reticle.
I'll have to keep an eye out for this. What does this mean for gen 1 prices? Hopefully some deals to be had.

What are the primary improvements with gen 2?

Nifty.

I may have to pick one of these up.

You could sell yours quite easily, they’re one of the most popular optics right now.

Night vision settings seem to be the big one.

This would have been a good opportunity to add side controls. Really surprised they didn't actually.

I really like my Gen1, so I’ll keep my eye on this. I don’t really need NV, and would have loved to see them shave an ounce or two off and increase the battery life, but I’m not overly worried about it.

$450 MSRP is “spendy”?


I guess you don’t do green eyed wizardry, do ya?




ETA: MSRP is $799.99. I’ve seen them for much lower elsewhere (Optics Planet, Kenzie’s Optics both have them for $499)

Except you don’t have to worry about this being garbage and breaking just sitting in the safe, and if it does Vortex has excellent CS and a lifetime warranty as opposed to EOjunk who will straight up ignore your RMA for a month like are with me right now. Brand new XPS3-0.  Faded reticle right out of the box.

Added 4 night vision appropriate reticle brightness settings and a button to activate them

Made the rear window bigger to improve the field of view

Shaved off 0.8 ounces

Changed to a toolless battery cap

Did away with the USB port for charging rechargeable batteries

Only in Call of Duty.
Link Posted: 7/17/2020 10:53:34 AM EDT
I have a Gen 1. The only reason I would upgrade is for the wider rear window and maybe the tooless battery cap...wish they just sold those separately. I don't need night vision capability. I wish they had completely eliminated the tint and put the buttons on the side for those of us who use a magnifier.

Still, I might try one and sell my Gen 1, though I guess the used prices for those just took a hit.

~1,000 hour battery life and no shake awake?


That totally eliminates it from HD use for me. I want my optic on and ready to rock the second I pick up my rifle, no fumbling with buttons under stress to turn it on.

Aimpoints have good enough battery life to leave on 24/7 and change the battery once every few years.
