The 512's are getting replaced by the Xps's which are about half of the length. I've sold a few dozen of them since they came out and that is what I have on my personal gun. Takes up a lot less rail space and looks cooler. You can see it in my avatar,but here is a better picture. I love the thing.

What battery does that use? I like the 512 because I keep AA's around for other purposes and much like ammo I want to have to have a lot of a few types for more flexibility.

Same here, AAs are always around somewhere, and their cheaper than the little lithiums.

Shtf scenario. What home doesnt have AA's laying around

I find the 512 can be a little dim in bright light. I love mine, its a solid optic. But I'd never have it without cowittnessed troy sights. On its own, there's too many scenarios where it can be washed out.
