are all night vission?
whats the best eotech pros and cons?
Well, not all of them are night compatible, if you dont have NOD's i wouldnt worry about it, second, there are not really any cons that i see, i LOVE EoTechs, so it comes down to what kinda dot you want, i have the XPS2-1 with the single mill dot because i dont like the circle. In my 2 cents they kick ass. mine ran about $540
Product: XPS2 | L-3 EOTech Holographic Weapons Systems
Are they night vision or do you have to have a NV attachment ????
Eotech's have no "night vision" capabilities. They are compatible with night vision tubes.
Night Vision Compatibility | L-3 EOTech - Holographic Weapons Systems
All the night vision mode on them does is turn the dot from red to infrared so it does not glare in your night vision goggles.
EXPS - on 7mm quick disconnect raiser i believe
(2-0)- single dot, no NV compatible
(2-2)- 2 dots
(3-0)- NV compatible, 1 dot
(3-2)- NV compatible, 2 dots
(3-4)- NV compatible, 4 dots
XPS- no quick disconnect raiser
"refer to above"
(2-1)- 1 dot, no circle
I have an eotech 553, the same one I used in the marine corps and has been proven in the desert heat, ocean as well as being dropped and blown up in an ied blast. It has the NV setting, is submersible, and runs off of cr123a lithium batteries. My experience with the NV setting is that its basically useless unless you have a night vision attachment coupled with it. Nvg's will work but it's impossible to get a cheek weld on any rifle when using them. I favor the lithium batteries over double a's because they last longer and you have 100% of the batterie's power all through the life of the battery where a double a will dim the sight as it dies. I also prefer the circle & dot combo for close range target acquisition. Anything in that circle when, it's five yards or closer, is getting shot as well as having the dot for more precision when desired.
