EOTech is one of the most widely used Red Dot Sights in the tactical world. They became most known with Law Enforcement units, but it has seen many applications throughout various units, agencies and civilians. They come in different shapes and sizes.
This is modeled after the 551 model, which is a medium sized version. The DE version comes in a Dark Earth finish that will blend in, with multiple conditions and envrironments.
The body is made out of high density polymer material, with a metal hood. The result is a lightweight but extremely rugged sight.
The reticle is very sharp and well defined, making it quite easy to lock on a target with speed and precision, making it quite effective for close to medium range engagements.
The mounting method is a huge thumb screw that couldn’t be nicer and easier to use. It is really user friendly and also very quick to mount.
The battery compartment is easily accessed at the front black latch system and requires four LR44 batteries.
The control panel is pretty much what you can find on most Eotech replicas. The rubber buttons have a nice and positive feedback and are quite rugged. As usual the NV or “Night Vision” button will change the colour of the reticle from Red to Green.
In order to turn on the red dot all you need to do is press one of the up or down buttons, which are also used to control the brightness. Again pretty standard with any EOTech replicas out there today.
Adjusting the reticle in terms of windage an elevation is also easy and just like the real one, it requires the use of a screw driver.
Contrary to other EOTech models, this presents no mirroring effect when looking through the glass and offers an extremely crisp dot.
