The SU-231/PEQ (Model 553) base consists of 2 ARMS throw levers and is only adaptable to rails that properly accept the ARMS design.
When used in Close Quarters Battle (CQB) environments, this revolutionary weapon optic delivers amazing speed and accuracy gains, uncompromising use of peripheral vision, leaves no muzzle-side optical signature and is packaged in a compact, durable unit. Now deployed with elite Special Forces and SWAT teams the world over, the HWS delivers vastly improved shooting performance for all levels of operators.
This model HWS comes with a standard reticle - 65 MOA ring with alignment ticks and a 1 MOA aiming dot. The large, open ring is the key to the lightning quick eye recognition and unmatched target acquisition speed. Alternately, the 1 MOA can be used for precision aiming at distances as far as 500 yards where it only covers 5" of the target scene. The reticle demonstrates its versatility for a host of close quarter and long range engagement scenarios.
The versatility of this sight is remarkable, as it can be used in conjunction with a night vision monocular. This sight effectively produces an accurate and versatile night vision rifle scope. A special night vision setting allows the operator to immediately drop the brightness intensity of the holographic sight reticle to eliminate any "halo" effect and saturation of the night vision device. When the appropriate rail extension and quick release mechanisms are employed, this combination allows your weapon to go from broad daylight to no-light environments quickly, easily, and without losing zero.
This is an extremely durable and reliable weapon sight. It is waterproof (66 feet submersion rating) and fogproof, with a repeatable 1 MOA after re-mounting. The window material is a 3/16" thick shatterproof laminate with anti-glare and scratch resistant coatings, and the housing features a non-reflective black hard coat finish.
Engineered for small to medium caliber weapon platforms, the 553 is an excellent choice for use in CQB or urban battle environments. Because it is also accurate for longer range sighting, it should be noted that the Eotech holosight technology leaves no muzzle-side optical signature. Whatever your tactical needs are, you can rely on the EoTech 553.
