I got the 512 because it uses AA batteries. Pretty common battery. Love my Eotech on my Delton Echo 316/MOE Sporting Rifle.

I really have the 552 A65, the one with AA batteries. I like the A65 because the AA batteries are much easier to find.

The xps series is a newer more well thought out design. They use the shorter CR123 batteries, which are pretty easy to find online for only a couple bucks each. The batteries are mounted laterally so that recoil impulse won't cause the batteries to lose contact and reset the sight. (a common problem with 5 series models).

The only problem is, I don't like the way the xps looks, the 512s look alot nice.

One piece of advice. Please try and handle an eotech and see if the reticle works well for your eyes. My eyes (astigmatic and lasik'd) can't handle the Eotech reticle.

We have 2 XPS & I have one of the 512's. I like the XPS's a lot better. The on/off switch's are on the side which is easier to deal with.

I've heard about the reticle bleeding out with bad eyes. Mine is fuzzy if look at and focus on the reticle but clears up when I look at a point in space (target etc).

I've got the 511(no longer avaliable) and the XPS2. I cant tell any difference except the battery life in the XPS2. The 511 has batteries that are not mounted laterally but I have never had the sight reset. Both the on and off buttons are on the back of 511 and XPS2.
