Anyone try out the new Eotech Holosight 500 series? It's smaller than the original. There's a "Tactical Model 551 with Standard Reticle Night Vision Compatible."

good website: www.rushusa.com/html/products/eotech.html


These guys seem to like them ;a

i have one and REALLY like it. Just for the record i tried out a 550 with my NV rig. It worked fine on the lowest setting.

I put my new EOTech 552 on my Colt M4 last Thursday and went firing on Friday. I could not believe how accurate it is and how easy and fast acquisition capabilities it has. It fired very well at 100 yards also. Awesome site. And you do not need extra dollars for mounting it.

I've got mine out on the FIRSH so I can use the iron sights normally if I want. I'm not sure if that's what co-witnessing is, but the two sights don't interfere. It works like a champ, holds the zero even if you take it off, and presents a clear aperture in any light level.

I love it.

The bushnell is not mil-spec, but the price is very attractive.

I have two 551 and I am planning another 551 for my AUG. Love the sight.

You'll find dozens of threads on the EOTech in the Optics and Sights forum.

The only bad thing is that once you get it for a flat top you start to want to buy more accessories for it: flip up rear sights, flip up front sights, rails on the hand guard to mount it more forward... The madness never ends!! Seriously, I like my 552 alot, even though I don't have NV yet(too expensive for my wallet.) But I can always dream, can't I?

Bushmaster Shorty AK flattop w/ Eotech 511 mounted between an ARMS #40 rear, and a BMAS folding front. Perfect co-witness.
