EOTech L-3 Holographic Gun Sight - Model M512
Combining the speed of a HALO gun sight with a wide field of view, adjustable reticle intensity, and rugged construction, the EOTech M512 has a lot to offer hunters who want to sight in on trophy game faster. The M512 is built to withstand the toughest hunting conditions with its waterproof design (submersible to 10') and hard coat non-reflective black finish. Thanks to its wide field of view and multiple intensity settings for the reticle, the M512 helps the hunter sight in faster, no matter the hunting conditions. The sight mounts to a standard Picatinny rail and is repeatable to 1 MOA after re-mounting. And don't worry about the M512 running out of batteries in the woods. The sight will run for 1,000 continuous hours on lithium batteries or 600 hours on standard AA batteries. Dimensions: 5"L x 1.8"W x 2.25"H. Weight: 11.5 oz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbowers Great buy I needed a new scope for my Ruger SR-556 and the fit was perfect. I had a friend that researched Eotect. I also met up with a representative at a trade show and he said to buy the 512 if I was not getting a magnifier. Great purchase love this scope! April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Msgunhumter Top of the line Top of the line. I have bought cheaper copies of the eotech in the past and they all pale in comparison . The eotech holds its zero at all times after hundreds of rounds April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by BlackRifle556 Great Addition I researched red dots extensively before I made a decision to purchase the EOTech. When I read a comment from a Marine who had ditched his issued Aimpoint (an $800 rig I might add) for the EOTech in combat that tore it. I had to have one. I am very, very pleased with the purchase. Operation is extremely simple. I went with this particular model because it uses standard AA batteries. It is a little longer as a result, but this is mounted on my "end of the world" rifle, and I'm sure that in a crisis AA batteries will be much more common than some oddball sized Li batteries. The quality of the sight is immediately apparent. Fit and finish is top notch, and it can be mounted/dismounted with a nickle as the only tool. Target acquisition is very rapid, and the field of view is vastly superior to a scope style sight where you're looking through a tiny circle. Accuracy is as advertised, though to achieve it you;ll have to shoot the rifle from a rest because at 100 yards with no magnification you can't really see well enough to achieve the rifle's or the optic's true level of accuracy. The forte of this optic is accurately shooting at intermediate ranges (25-50 yards). Anything closer and you're better off with a laser, anything further and you need magnification, which you can just add to this optic. Another benefit is that nothing is seen downrange since the optic is holographic; only you see the dot. A laser's weakness is that it can be seen by your enemy as well. That's a pretty tactical use, but this is a pretty tactical piece of equipment. If you want the best; you've found it. March 22, 2013

A:Not 100% sure what you mean by mounting tight. Can you mount it right against other accessories on a top rail for example? Sure, but you would want to leave a little space at the back to work the controls. I think I have one block of the rail exposed between my EOTech and my MagPul MBUS rear sight and that allows for easy manipulation of the controls. In front you could go right up against, but you'd have to remove something to change batteries (like a once every 3-5 year deal, so not that big a deal).
A:Yes it can if you have a picatinny rail.
A:if you mount it correctly, there won't be any concerns.
A:Take a look at the Burris AR-536
Details:If it will take the recoil of the 460, is there anything else that might not make this the right scope for this handgun?
A:It will take the recoil but it may be a little large for a pistol. Try a small halo instead maybe the relex style.
Details:Interested in mounting this on an AR, but does it work with iron sights in place, or is this for "flat top" rifles only?
A:Yes. In fact you can shoot with the iron sights right through the EOTech if the battery went down or you want to. I would suggest changing to flip up style iron sights because the iron sights cab be a distraction when using the EOTech, but it will certainly work. I run MagPul MBUS flip ups with the EOTech on my AR and both work great.
A:This model requires a 1913 Picatinny rail or Weaver rail for mounting. You can use BUIS and your front sight to "cowitness" the reticle.
A:Might sit high if you use a carry handle mount but it will fit. You will need a mount for carry handle if you have a fixed handle.
A:THey make a see thru adapter for around $10 to fit it on an Ar or M16 carry handle. It fits on the standard top with nothing added. When you use this you will NEVER use the iron sights again anyway. I use good batterys and replace then twice a year but have never had them go dead.
A:Yes it will mount directly to a picatiny rail
A:Absolutely. Takes maybe 30 seconds. That's where mine is right now.
A:Will fit right on, that is the style it prefers.
A:Direct mount with it's single thumb screw.
A:Maybe, but it wouldn't be optimal. You need a picatinny style rail to mount this without an adapter.
A:It will work on anything that has a Picatiiny rail. You can add a picatinny to almost anything. Rail mounting should be done by a competent gunsmith, but once that's completed you can mount the EOTech and sight it in. An EOTech on a lever action? Sounds cool!
A:Only if you have a Weaver Style base on the top with multiple slots.
Details:I have read some reviews for this product and can't seem to get the same results. One review said "good to 300 yards". When adjusting the scope, at 200 yards the target was so small I was not comfortable when siting it in. I wouldn't feel good at 200 yards (forget 300) that I would have a kill shot. I do NOT have the extra $500 magnifier.
Any suggestions? Am I just too old fashion? Should I just go back to a regular scope? Need some ideas
A:For distances over 50 yards I'd recommend either a magnifier or going back to a good 3-9 adjustable scope. This optic's forte really isn't long distances without magnification. I'm sure the accuracy is there, but you need magnification to make use of it.
A:Dot might cover a target, it is a 4 MOA dot at that distance. Capible yes best choice probably not.
A:Frankly I do not see this as a long range optic. It was prouduced to use on Law Enforcement and Military weapons but works well for small game or I have heard Turkey. It will get on target faster then anything you own. As you are aware with the holograph you do not even have to be inline with the sight to obtain a good target. If this is to be your only optic for hunting and you shoot long range you have the wrong thing. SWAROVSKI: there is none better. Try the Z5.
A:I have the same shotgun! IMO best pump gun ever made. You'd need to have the receiver drilled and tapped to accept a picatinny rail by a qualified gunsmith. After that it'd go right on.
A:You will need a weaver style base
