I cant find any 1.5v N type batteries

What does the package say?

And what to look for besides just (N Type 1.5v)

It will say 1.5v N (there is a similar battery but much higher voltage - do not use).

Try Sears Hardware ($3.19/pr) or Lowes.

Must be a FL thing - cannot turn around without bumping into them here. Pay me freight and cost of batteries and I will send you a box of them. Batteries Plus down the street has the Duracell Procell Line for a good price.

10 4!

If radio shak/Lowes aint got it I found a web site to order from

I find them everywhere too, Wal-Mart, convenience stores, super market, etc....

I was wondering why you see negative posts about the N battery model.... For instance when someone asks about purchasing an EO Tech you'll see a few responses in the effect of "don't get the N model" is it the shorter battery life? I for one prefer the smaller size of my 551, it fits perfectly on my Oly in front of my BUIS..... I don't really care that it has a short battery life!

To keep them from moving put some soft foam ear plugs in. This was if you need ear plugs you have them.

Yeah that me I didnt want a longer one ! I want the eotech as far away as possible!

Matter of fact I wich I could move it forward even more!!

Im just piss because my store dont carry any!! I will try RADIO SHAK Today!

OTHER than Bitching about finding batteries I like the 551!!

I had 2000 to blow on my 4th AR15 and stuff so money wasnt a issue!

I also have a aimpoint ML2 so when I say I like the 551 it means alot comeing from a DIE HARD FAN of AIMPOINT!!


BTW invisible soul thanks for the tip! I use a ear plug as a gapper as well!

BTW A CAJUM Im with ya just carry extra batteries
