I moved this from general forum...



Hello all-

I just got my first Bushmaster - XM15 E2S M4. I broke it in Friday night with 200 rounds. There is no way that I can afford a ACOG. I saw the Hakko at the shop and can get one for aroun $185 USD.

Any know anything about them?

Thanks for replying.

It is a good general purpose shooting and rnage sight, it will not take the abuse like the mil-spec sight on the market. Another good choice for the price is an OKO and also the Bushnell Holosight. I think Bushnell is the better of the three choice. Hope this helps.

I have the Bed 35. It's mounted on my Ruger 454 Casull. It replaced the Leupold variable scope. I had my doubts, but it's holding up well. It came without a battery and the front mounting screw stipped out when I tightened it up. Maybe I was a little overboard, but it is on a 454. I emailed direct to Hakko Japan with some suggestions. They sent a battery and replaced the screw. Very good customer service should count for something. They actually sent the parts from Japan. Cost more than the parts were worth. Check out the web site. Hakko has a long history of producing quality optics. That said, I'm still going with the Eotech 512 for my new Bushmaster. The Hakko can be had for under $200, but the Eotech sure looks a lot more durable.

Hmmm, is Eotech the same as HOLOsight? Look at this link, I am confused now --- http://www.arizonagunrunners.com/Products/Eotech/body_eotech.html Also, I could not find a model 512, just 510 and 520.

$185 is a very good price for the Hakko. I have two of them and might be getting another one. One is on my Bushmaster and the other on my Ruger MKII Gov't.
