I was just thumbing through my Cabela's catalog and saw a Bushnell HOLOsight. Is it the same as the Eotech? They look similar, if you havent seen it here is the sight http://www.bushnell.com/productinfo/riflescopes/holosight.html

I am a newby, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Take a look at this thread for more info. According to "them", the Bushnell is made by EOtech but without the metal "roll bar" for added protection. [URL]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=18&t=144524[/URL] EDITED TO ADD: I just mounted an EOtech 511 on a flattop RRA and I really like it a lot! I haven't had the chance to zero and shoot with it but I can't wait! Drivie

EOTech makes the Holosight for Bushnell, on paper or contract, EOTech is suppose to sell only to the Military and LE market, and Bushnell has the civilian market. but what EOTech reseller do after they got the product is their business(in a way), so you see lots of EOTech in the civilian market. Bushnell is up in arms about the civilian leak of the EOTech, they had their guy use his own credit card to call an major national web based EOTech dealer to purchase a 551, and told the dealer he is just a civilian, not in anyway military or LE involved, he got that puppy in the mail in a week. needless to say, Bushnell is raising some hell with EOTech. EOTech is planning on laser etching their sights with LE/Military use only. what other measure to take, only time will tell. never the less, Holosight is basicially an EOTech 500 series.

Will my pre-ban 552 be worth more after they start marking them Leo Only?

Hah! Pre-ban/post-ban EOTech's. Maybe I can charge 3X the price for my 510. Av.

no pre ban nor post ban, you probably will still get the sight, it will just be marked LE/Military only. It would be just like Remington sniper rifles, you can buy them, but as far as Remington is concern, they only sell them to LE dealers, what the dealer do is up to them.
