No. I think there might be a couple clones that have that option but not EoTech.

Thanks wasnt sure. The only eotech ive owned was the bushnell holosight before eotech became eotech. Waaaay back in the early 90s they made em for bushnell. Still might.

Anything that stands up to a desert eagle 50ae through 1000 rounds and doeant lose zero is pretty rugged.

For some reason the cheaper red dot sights actually have more features. Neither EOTech or Aimpoint goes in for selectable reticles. On the other hand, I have seen cheap knock offs for $79 that are selectable between red and green, and which have numerous reticles. I bought one of these and it quit working on my second trip to the range.

The Ultradot Matchdot II has selectable-size red dots and a couple of heads-up close-quarters reticles. For about $220 it is a good value. While perhaps not mil-spec, it is quality Japanese optics and I have had good luck with them on my 10/22s.

Last I looked they still made them for Bushnell.

My only warning is this:

If you have ever had corrective eye surgery or astigmatism, they to handle a rds/hws before purchase. I had lasik 10+ years ago and have found eotechs and leupold deltapoints unusable due to flare/starbursting.

This is why I favor aimpoints.

I had Lasik in 1999. No problem with any RDS. So your mileage may vary.
