Had to post the question here, since most EOTechs I have ever seen have been mounted on the AR style rifle.

But what about a .308, Specifically a M1A.  I find my M1A has less kick that my AR10, but will the optic survive the recoil of the .308?  Aimpoints seem to do ok.

I've seen pics of the EOTech mounted on heavy machine guns so I'd say yes, the EOTech would easily handle the .308 recoil.

See the thread on M-14's with an EoTech and Knight's forearm in the uppers section.....your quest is answered!

Spc. Christopher Wilson, left, and Sgt. Randall Davis, a sniper team for Bravo Company, 5th Battalion, 3rd Brigade, 20th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division, hold sniper rifles used during operations in and around Samarra. Leaders maintain that the Stryker brigade’s abundance of snipers is ideal for limiting collateral damage and civilian casualties during guerilla-style fighting

Sniper Sgt. Randall Davis peers down the holographic scope of the M-14 sniper rifle he used during operations in and around Samarra. Since mid-December, Davis has been credited with eight confirmed kills and two “probables,” a count no soldier in the brigade has matched.  


Thanks to 1001001 for pointing these out to me.

ditto on the HMGs. I have seen pics of them mounted on top of Browning M2's in Iraq.

I just gotta add that I love the M1A, but it sure is a sucky platform for optics...[:(]

I think it will work.  EOs are tough little buggers.

Here's how you mount it....
