Get an Aimpoint.
Thread: Need an EOtech
Anyone know a good place to get one? most of the stores in my area charge darn near $500 for an old 511/512
Looking for a good deal but I want to make sure it's a legitimate one too.

A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.
i got my 512 at the Marksman in Puyallup for $409 + tax. about $450. they were the cheapest brick and mortar place i could find.

Supposedly their newest model gets up to 8 years out of the battery. That's 'always on' mind you.

I like eotech's reticle though, I have an astigmatism in my eyes and the aimpoint dot doesn't look circular, it looks like a blob with spikes coming off all angles.
I think I want an EOtech 516
I picked one up on ebay a couple years ago for $250. I don't use it much but do have it for backup.
I can tell you than Dan marks his up WAY below what any sane or reasonable businessman should or would. Go to Mary's Pistols in Tacoma.
EDIT to add: I bought my 557 EoTech from Dan for considerably less than I was able to find it online. As I mentioned, Dan does not mark them up much from wholesale.
I bought my 512 from GG&G in Arizona: http://www.gggaz.com/
Just over $400 including their QD mount and "Claymore" flip up lens covers. Took quite a while to come in though - - can't imaging why since I ordered it in Dec. 2008.

The 516 is $439.00 at http://www.del-ton.com/EoTech_Sight_516_p/op1025.htm

I won't say anything bad about the EOTech but I HAVE been shooting a lot with a Barska holographic sight. Real similar to the EOTech but without the shroud.
It has your choice of four reticles. A small dot, a large dot, a cross, and the "circle of death" which is a cross in a circle.
Anyone using this should note that changing the reticle almost always requires re-zeroing but once set it holds real well. I have one on an M-4 type AR-15 and after 1,000 or so rounds it is still rock solid zeroed. Battery life is good as long as you remember to turn it off.
No, it's not an EOTech but it IS accurate as heck and easy to aquire a target with.
Besides, one could buy 5 of these for the price of ONE EOTech.

Check out the EE on Arfcom. I see them all the time.
I just got an XPS 2-0 for $419. PM me for details.
The other thing to to consider is the Bushnell Holosight. It is the exact same thing as the eotech (same internals) but not up-armored. The run around 250.
