EOTech was showing off two in-stores-for-summer products at NRA last weekend. The first is the latest addition to their Vudu line of scopes, the impressive 5-25×50 Super Short, perfect for mounting on an AR platform rifle. How short is super-short? Try just over 11 inches long. That makes it one of the shortest first focal plane scopes in existence.
In the few minutes we played with it, we noticed the extremely forgiving amount of eye relief, the Vudu has, making it easy to get on target quickly. The scope is available with either an MD3 or Horus reticle and MSRPs at $2099 and $2399, respectively and they’ve just recently hit the stores.
More familiar in the EOTech line is their latest holographic sight, the EXPS2 Green.
EOTech tells us it’s not easy being green. A lot of work went into getting their green holographic sight right, but its finally there. But why green?
Mostly because, according to EOTech, the human eye picks up green about six times easier and faster than it does red. Just playing with it on the convention floor, it certainly seemed impressively easy to pick up.
Their two new models (one with a QD attachment and one with a standard screw-in Pic rail clamp) have a 68 MOA ring surrounding a 1 MOA center dot. And on a true holographic sight (don’t call it a red dot), the reticle appears to be on the target rather than back within the sight. EOTech says that means less time orienting yourself and a quicker first shot.
The standard Pic rail model MSRPs for $639. The QD version is $699. We can’t wait to give one a try.
