L3 EOTech - (For law enforcement/military use)
This is certainly a sweet gismo. It transformed, for me at least, an HK SL 8 w/a 3x9 Zeiss into what appears to be a useful unit for walk and stalk yote huntin'.
The Circle-Dot reticle is super sweet. Could easily track robins and doves passing over and flitting around the yard.
I has 2 AA batteries that will last longer than I will. (Auto shut off after 30 hours)
My son has been saving up my Cabela's points and hogged the all. What a cheap skate.
We removed the Zeiss and stuck the thing on the SL-8 .
Initial impression was WOW!
Second impression was "I can use my right eye with this!"
Third: It's plenty good for chicken sized targets out to 200 meters.
I could envision all those yote jump shots that I missed with a scoped rifle. Aaaaah, there may be new life in the walk & stalk arena.
Was going to the range anyway so brought Mungus Son along w/the EOTech/SL-8
First impression at the range was that it came from the dealer pretty much sighted in. Hows that for luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Elevation was pretty much on and windage was off 4 clicks @ 200 meters. After a few adjustments and busting some rocks he started in on the little chickens. The dot just about covered the chicken but it didn't hamper hitting them.
I can see one of these EOTech thingies on an AR-180 in my future. (Or maybe even a Magpul) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
