what are the range on these sights. How far are yall shooting accurately
Link Posted: 3/18/2006 7:43:48 PM EDT
I have no issue on COM to 100-200 Meters.

Good, rapid aquisition.....nice accuracy.

Of course, I'm not uber force airsoft sniper, either.

YMMV.

Howdy,
200yds is very doable if you could with your iron sights before getting the sight

tag. I just got a 512. I have not got to the range yet though.

I have the 512 and have no problems with it beyond 100yds. Accordint to EOTech they are good for 300 meters

Only used mine at 100, sorry.

5 years ago everyone dismissed them as toys for gamers.
Now they are tactical.

I've also only used mine at 100, but mostly for 25-50.


I'm starting to like my 2 Eothingies better than my Aimpoint

I have shot 300 yrd with my 512.

Once I got my hold over firgured out , I could hit the the steel about 75% of the time, Im not sure how big it was, I would guess around 18"

And this was using XM193, I could of used something heavier.

Seems like most the plinking I do with my AR's are on old propane containers. With an eotech I can hit one of the larger white (the ones about the size of a 5 gallon bucket of paint) containers at around 200 fairly easy.

I just got a 552 ,but it's mounted on a PTR-91 not an
AR-15.

With good ammo,I can hit aluminum cans at 200 yards
with it.
At my range the 200 yard backrest is in a shaded area,
which makes it easier to hit on a lower setting .

Although the dot is 1 MOA ,it appears larger to the human
eye at higher settings,and can block out smaller targets.

In bright sunlight ,I think it would be more difficult to hit those
cans because you would need to turn up the power to see the dot.

I haven't got to shoot it with the 552 at 300 + yet because my local
range only goes to 200 yards.
Just by looking at further targets with the 552 mounted on the gun,
I believe it should be easily usable for man sized targets at 300
at a higher setting in sunlight,but it would block out smaller targets
completely.
At that range ,Aimpoints with a 4 MOA reticule would block out
a lot more.That 12 inch estimate looks more like 2 feet in sunlight,
making even man sized targets more difficult.

an eotech is good for inside 100 yards. if you're looking to make longer shots on a regular basis, get a ACOG

The one MOA dot in the center means you can get more precision than you would expect. It's not like a 4-5 MOA dot that will obscure smaller targets at longer distances.

Will have to look for the article, but I remember reading about a Marine Scout/Sniper in Iraq that had one mounted on his M14 and supposedly he made kills out to 300m with easy.

My 552 Eotech is absolutely awesome for 100 yard and closer shots... but it really suprised me how good it is out to 300 and 500 yard shots. I shoot high power matches with a competition specific AR and the EOTech equipped M4gery came pretty close at least out to 500 yards. The dot takes a little getting used to (if you're used to iron sights) and for 300 yard + shots I found I was doing better with weak eye closed rather than both eyes open (which was what seemed to work best for 100 yrd and closer shots).

Inside 50 meters, I prefer irons, 50 to 300 meters the EOTech does just fine!
