That's just weird.

I hope this doesn't have a negative effect on EOTech's customer service or civilian-friendliness.

$49million.....seem pretty cheap. Shit, I think I have a million dollars worth of Eotech optics myself

I wonder how this will effect their Dealers/Distributors? They say business as usual, but thats what they all say at the onset of a purchase agreement. Maybe this will lower the pricing of the optics or maybe it'll raise it!

Well time will tell

Hard to say for certain, but I imagine the same folks within EOTech will remain and do their job as normal.

I hope so...

Well, I hope this turns out to be nothing but good.

I'm betting on the latter. Products rarely ever get cheaper after mergers/takeovers/buyouts.

sounds like more overhead, higher payroll, yada yada...that usually means higher prices somewhere along the line. I hope not.

Man, maybe someone in L3 can help eotech figure out how to get the product out the door in a reasonable amount of time

Woo woo, they are now working for the second richest man in the world.
He's a cheap ass though.
