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 556 model, which is a compact sized version. What makes it stand out from the rest of the models is that it runs on a single CR123 battery that is located vertically to the body. That makes the length as compact as it gets, allowing for maximum space for other accessories.
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 battery compartment is easily accessed via a screw cap on the right hand side. As mentioned, it requires a single CR123 battery.
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.
