Can someone tell me what the differences are between the 512.A65 Tactical and the 552.A65 Military? I'm comparing the descriptions at SWFA and all I see is a difference in touchpad design. What does the extra $48.00 for the Military model buy?

512.A65 Tactical

552.A65 Military

Thanks,
ViCAP

Besides the new control face, the 552 model also has increased waterproof capability (down to 66ft IIRC), and a night-vision setting, allowing you to view the reticle through a night-vision scope mounted behind it. Both scopes have the same circle dot reticle and AA battery capability. The only thing I wish my 512 had that the 552 has is the new control face. EoTechs rule!

i just got a new 552 and have a 511 i bought earlier this year. the new face pad is almost worth the extra bucks alone. add in the extra waterproofing and NV capability, it's not a bad deal. very nice improvement. chen, do you kow if they will make the new face pad standard in the future?

But the ad for the [url=www.riflescopes.com/store/prodinfo.asp?number=512.A65]Tactical[/url] claims it's night-vision compatible as well. Quote: "Night Vision Contrast Ratio: 10,000,000:1 with NV switch engaged"

there is no NV switch/button on the 510 series.
